Joanne and Ben gave their guests two drinks tokens each so they could have a couple of drinks on them, and also miniature bottles of homemade schnapps, made by Ben’s dad. The tables were named after ballroom and Latin dances in honour of Joanne’s background in dance.
There was also a photo booth, which all the guests loved and a pic’n’mix stand so guests could fill up goodie bags with treats. Joanne and Ben also provided a ‘date jar’ where guests could suggest date night ideas for the couple – they were very entertaining to read the next day.
In the evening the couple shared their first dance to John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ as they felt the song was fitting for their relationship. Joanne is also a big John Legend fan – she can play many of his songs on the piano.
They also had a second dance, to ‘I Will Wait’ by Mumford & Sons, as this is a poignant track for them due to Ben’s trips away with the army.
