Q. We've chosen our venue and are on track with the planning but how can we ensure our summer wedding runs smoothly on the day?

A. Natasha Gilchrist says: Whether it's in a barn, mill, tipi, marquee, on the beach, in the forest or even in your own garden, all perfect locations for a beautiful summer wedding, aim to bring the indoors out and make the most of the outdoor spaces. You may want a festival vibe with hay bales, firepits and bell tents or for a typically British flavour you could treat your guests to a traditional fish and chip or ice cream van.

To ensure all of your plans and ideas come together, having someone there to coordinate everything will help to make it a seamless, stress-free celebration. You don't want to be worrying that everyone and everything is in the right place at the right time and you don't want to be bothering your friends and family to help either.

From decorating, to serving ice-cold summery drinks, directing your guests, setting up outdoor games and meeting with entertainers and caterers, having an on-the-day coordinator will allow you to relax, enjoy yourself and soak up every magical moment of your special day.
