Promoting the history and beauty of churches in the county of Essex, England.
The following is a selection of specially selected links to other sites that you will likely find useful for church wedding planning, alongside some relevant dynamically generated links. Unlike many sites, this site only provides static links that really do have some kind of wedding content link with this one, and not just links that are provided for the sake of internet traffic generation. The dynamic links, of course, are the responsibility of the advertising engine - but generally seem quite relevant.
To find links to individual Essex Churches (where available), please select the church page itself, from the A-Z link in the menu above.
Julie and I are currently going through the process of arranging our own church wedding for 2012. So I thought it would be a good idea for me to grow this page as we experience the ups and downs of organising this ourselves. In addition to these links, I plan to add a diary explaining how we are getting on. I hope this will be interesting reading for other couples going through the same process.
Of course, much of this information is still applicable for non-church weddings too.
CHURCH WEDDINGS - GENERAL INFO
A Church of England wedding carries a basic cost of just over £310 (2011 prices). However, it's possible that you will also desire an organist, choir, and if your church has bells, the bell ringers. Be aware that this may well double the basic cost.
ESSEX WEDDING RECEPTION VENUES

ESSEX WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY
Video is a personal choice for weddings. Some say that photographic memories stand the test of time more than the distraction of too much sound, whilst others love the realism and complete recollection of a scene offered by a video. There are not a huge amount of pitfalls associated with videography for weddings - except that any performers (including choirs, singers, musicians etc) may require extra payment for being recorded.

ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Photography will give you plenty to think about. Again, it does come down to budget, but some key decisions you will have to make will revolve around how long you want the photographer to stay. Do you want 'posed' cake shots, or would you rather they stay until you cut the cake 'for real'? Further important points are the kind of albumm that you want. Click the link below for more details:
ESSEX WEDDING CARS
Rolls Royce, Buick, Bentley, Daimler, Hummer - what will you choose?
Wedding insurance can be a confusing minefield - I try to list some important advice on the page linked to below:
