Get to know Claire Muffett-Reece, editor of Your North East Wedding, with these top 10 questions.
Reader weddings – I'm obsessed! It's amazing to be able to see how each couple met, fell in love then went on to plan the best day of their lives!
She's chic and oh-so-stylish while also budget-savvy – meaning she's not afraid to scour the sales to nab a bridal bargain!
It's back to those reader weddings again – I want a story that makes me well up when reading it, as well as one that's all about supporting locally-based suppliers. We all know the North East is the best place to live and get married in the world!
If I ever remarried it would only be to renew our vows - I've been with my husband for 22 years so he's most definitely a keeper! Our wedding in 2008 was a traditional affair with all my closest friends and family and a ton of champagne! If I could have changed anything it would be to have invested in a videographer. People didn't really video on their phones back then, so I only have hazy memories of all the amazing speeches.
Chas and Dave, as my husband and I are both huge fans! We got a quote for them to play at our evening reception, and I decided to think about it and let them know. After realising I did want them, regardless of the price, I found out they had already been booked for that date. I was gutted!
Red onion and hoovering obsessed!
As a mam to two young boys it was Boss Baby, which was surprisingly funny! We're off to see Minions 3 too.
My husband and two sons, of course! Failing that wine, my phone and a great pair of Pjs.
I'm a huge carnivore, so a steak cooked blue with all the trimmings. You also can't beat a good Parmo!
Laying in the sun at my parents' house in Spain, watching the kids giggling with delight while jumping in the pool while my husband pours me an ice-cold G&T. Divine!
