BBC Radio Solent – The Difficulties in Planning Same Sex Weddings…

Bonjour, bonjour to you all.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week and getting excited about Christmas?  Just over 3 weeks away and we’ll be sat around a Christmas tree drinking champers and opening pressies from loved ones – and not forgetting all those beautiful smells coming from the kitchen – AAARRRGGGHHH I CAN’T WAIT!!  Today I’m wearing my first Christmas jumper of the year to get into the festive spirit :-).

Anyway a few weeks ago I was on the radio – yeah I know again!

This show was on BBC Radio Solent, covering the South and around Southampton.  It was all about how difficult it is for same sex couples to get particular items for their wedding, for instance, cards, cake toppers, gifts all the little items focused on straight couples and that is easy to find.

It was interesting being asked to talk about it as I’ve not witnessed the difficulties behind it and their are plenty of amazing suppliers focusing on this service and even directories where you can find suppliers who are happy to be part of your wedding.  I guess it’s because I’m a wedding planner, but it would be interesting to find out if you had difficulty in this field and if you can speak up to other couples who are finding it difficult?

Here is the talk…

What do you think?  It’s interesting isn’t it?

Share and like people, share and like ;-).

Thank you for popping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.
