I love learning about times gone past, about kings and queens, about battles and knights. But also about everyday people and how they lived their lives. When I stop to think about it, we are living in a society that, in many ways, is vastly different to most of what’s come before. And even vastly different to other parts of the world today.

We have countless traditions associated with weddings. A white dress, flowers, the first dance, the bouquet toss. Bridesmaids, groomsmen, dad walking his little girl down the aisle.
