Wedding timeline

For some people, the whole process of planning a wedding can seem overwhelming. At Camden we want to try our best to make that process as smooth as possible for our couples.

Below is a timeline you can use to help you keep on top of your preparations. By no means is it essential to follow this format, but feel free to utilise this timeline as a guide, in case you’re ever left at a loose end during the planning process. 

Please bear in mind this a guide for civil ceremonies. For religious ceremonies please check with your minister of religion.
