I attended my friend’s wedding last year and it was fantastic. I got to know that Wedding Manual was behind it and I have now hired them for my sister’s wedding. Looking forward to another joy ride!

We wanted a different kind of a wedding and the scary wedding theme was suggested by Wedding Manual. All the guests were dressed as zombies, the wedding was planned in a forest area and there used to be horror sounds and music on the DJ. The environment was just fantastic and superb.
