There are wide variations in what National Newspapers are available on any given day in the past, given the 1st Anniversary is only a year previous we would normally supply The Times although we can offer  also Daily Mirror, Daily Mail, The Telegraph etc. pretty much any national UK newspaper (also Scottish Dailies) If you would like an alternative to the Times then please let us know with a note at checkout and we’ll endeavour to supply the edition requested.Please note, should any of the days you require be a Sunday there is a £20 surcharge due to their additional costs and scarcity, also some special days where major world events cause scarcity of the original papers there is a surcharge required if indeed they are available.
Should either of these occur we will contact you to arrange payment or cancel the order. Alternatively you could order a Daily Mirror Anniversary Book which is a failthful reproduction of the 3 days newspapers you select in a book form.

Planning your 1st Anniversary

We thought we would start our blogs with nothing to do with Anniversaries and talk about the wedding!!

Why I hear you ask; well as if you’ve not got enough on your plate at the wedding there are some great things you can do during the run up to the wedding day and immediately after to help make the 1st (and future) anniversaries more memorable.

Remembering simple things and jotting them down either on paper, in a blog or in your wedding planner will really help, believe me after a year of what will be an extremely busy one likely to be full of change and acclimatisation to becoming one half of a ‘couple’ there will be some details that you wished you had remembered.

We’ve put a basic list below of some of the things people forget as an aide memoire; use it as a list to store the details against. Is there something you wish you could remember from the actual wedding day let us know and we’ll add it to the list as a useful reminder for other couples.

  • First Song Danced to as a married couple.
  • Last song Danced to at the Wedding Celebration
  • The Menu for the Wedding Breakfast meal.
  • The Band or DJs Name
  • The Official’s name (or their formal title)
  • All your Guests

Is there something you wish you could remember from the actual wedding day? Let us know and we’ll add it to the list as a useful reminder for other couples. Writing this 24 years on from the original wedding I can say the item I struggle with the most is the actual guest list.
