Bride-to-be got a bunch of students to organise her 350-guest wedding
Whether it's a lavish affair or something more modest, a wedding without any hitches is normally high on a couple's agenda. And getting the right people to help them, who know what they are doing because they have done it countless times before, is pretty important to everything running smoothly. But Ceris Palser threw all that out the window and got a bunch of novice students to arrange her special day. Ceris is a careers team manager at Cardiff Metropolitan University. The 39-year-old, from Llandaff in Cardiff, said: "Some of our students had expressed a specific interest in wedding coordination; however, they were struggling to find experience. Therefore, I was asked if they could have any involvement in the planning of my big day. With full faith in their capabilities, I was delighted to have them involved."

"Ultimately, on the big day, I passed over all coordination to the students. It was a large event with more than 350 guests, held in the beautiful surroundings of Llandaff Cathedral, with 14 different suppliers to manage and the added threat of Storm Oscar during the week of the wedding. “The students executed the event with precision and passion, with guests saying it was the best wedding they had ever attended. My eternal gratitude goes to our fantastic students, I look forward to following their future careers and have no doubt they will make great event managers.” Ceris Palser, pictured with husband Mark, let Cardiff students take the reins of her big day (Image: Cardiff Met University) Ceris married her husband Mark 21 years after they met on their first day of university in 2002. They were joined on their wedding day, which included a reception at Insole Court, by their two daughters, Darcey, seven, and Pippa, five. Events Management student Cerian Swain, 21, was among those involved in the planning and execution of Ceris’s wedding. She said: “What a whirlwind of excitement and challenges having the incredible opportunity to coordinate Ceris’s wedding. It was undeniably one of the most demanding events I've worked on, but the rewards were immeasurable. “From the early hours of the morning until the late-night last dance, I was immersed in every aspect of the wedding. To Ceris and her new spouse, your love story inspired us all - thank you for entrusting me with the coordination of your special day.” Join the WalesOnline BREAKING news and top stories WhatsApp community WalesOnline has launched a new breaking news and top stories WhatsApp community.
