After meeting at running club in 2007, Clare and Rachael became firm friends, talking about most things as they ran through the streets of Manchester in all weathers. Over the years they have settled in the Northern Powerhouse, developed exciting careers in healthcare and law, and found themselves a couple of lovely husbands.
And it was in getting to the husband and wife bit, that they each did endless research, at that time the only way to create their wedding visions. Endless research for these time-poor professionals was tough, but it had to be done.
How to I Do aims to navigate you through the wedding planning minefield. With so many different wedding suppliers to choose from, and so many decisions to make, we aim to make the process faster, easier and more enjoyable.
Where to start? We have started for you with our list of boutique, regional wedding suppliers. We have hand-picked smaller, independent businesses who depend on their good reputations (which we understand to be excellent).
We also have created a topical and useful blog to inspire and assist you along the wedding planning journey. After your wedding, you are welcome to contact us if you would like your wedding to be featured, or if you can otherwise contribute to the wedding planning community with your take on a topical wedding issue please get in touch.
Let’s share the love: If you have had a fantastic experience, we also invite you to recommend suppliers who are not already featured.
Moreover, to create a community of helpful recommendations, you can comment on a supplier in the Leave a Review section on the supplier’s page. We invite honest and helpful reviews to help future couples. How to I Do. A community of handpicked, independent, boutique wedding suppliers; some of the very best in the North West.
Our labour of love.
OUR ETHOS ———————————————————————————————————————————————
We have taken part in a number of media efforts. In July 2018 we spoke at the launch of Edinburgh’s new Google Digital Garage, sharing the stage with politicians and other entrepreneurs. After that the Head of Google talked about us in About Manchester. With 9 days to go before her due date, Rachael and Clare spoke on Ribble FM. In fact, Rachael gave birth to her third child in October 2018 and just 3 weeks later we were on television. More recently we joined the lovely John and Albia on the afternoon show for BBC Radio Lancashire.
