Like and Share to Win a Free Preview Package!

Shoot It Yourself Competition

It's not every month that we're as excited about a competition as we are this month! We've had a huge response to Facebook competitions in the past with hundreds of people liking and sharing our page in order to be in the running for a free preview package which we've selected at random.

This month is different!

It's the ultimate 'like' race and the first couple with 400 likes next to their comment on the competition post wins a free preview package worth £450. It's as simple as that! The only catch is that the likes will only be counted if your friends and family like our page too. Neat huh?!

So good luck to all you SIY wannabes and we can't wait to see how you popular folks get on.

"RUDE Cover (The Dad's Side of the Story)"

When the American band Magic released a song all about asking a father if he could marry his daughter, we knew that it would feature heavily in our wedding videos this summer. When this video popped on our YouTube stream today it had us in stitches - watch this father's response to the lyrics!

"Why you gotta call me rude, I'm doing what a dad should do. Keep her from a fool like you....marry that girl, I'm going to punch your face!"

Undress Me Video

When this video popped up on our Facebook newsfeed we knew that we had to share! This made us giggle, cringe and want to fall in love all over again. Share! It'll make you feel good ;-)
