They are investing thousands of pounds just to shoot a short film of how they met, with Hollywood sized crew and all. The setting most chose was the 18th century.

The era of traditional gifts namely glassware and cutlery is fading away quickly. Most people want a gift that stands out from the rest. Imagine presenting a spa certificate to the newly weds, that would be more unforgettable as compared to an antique wall clock which most likely will be gathering dust in their attic soon.

Sincerely hope you find the right gift for your loved ones that maybe 10 years or more down the line they will still look at the gift and remember the best day of their life.
