Do you ever watch those mind-blowing experiences on TV and wonder what it would feel like to be chosen to take part?

When I spotted ITV’s This Morning was looking to throw a wedding this spring, I knew the exact people who should put themselves forward. My good friend Annie is, thankfully, just coming out the other side of a hellish year, having discovered a lump in her breast while watching a feature on This Morning this time last year urging women to check themselves.
During her 12 months of treatment, losing her hair, feeling poorly and terrified, one thing that kept playing on her mind was maybe never getting the chance to marry her man, Gareth.

I’ve wanted for ages to witness singing waiters in action. It was something I did consider for our own wedding, but never got around to properly looking into. I was thrilled recently to witness a pair of singers launch into fun party songs during the wedding breakfast at my friend’s wedding. They were bags of fun and no doubt will remain a talking point among the guests for years to come.
