Prince William and Kate Middleton have opted not to accept the traditional gifts for their wedding. Instead they have asked guests and well-wishers to make anonymous charitable donations.
Others feel that perhaps it’s just best to accept the gifts with the goodwill that they were intended. Hoping beyond hope that Great Aunt Maud does not drag some atrocious figurine out of her bottom drawer. Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer received a £1 million gem-encrusted model of an arab boat – how on earth would that sit in one’s drawing room without looking slightly out of place next to the aspidistra? The Queen and Prince Philip received a racehorse from the Aga Khan. Surely you would have to decline such a gesture? It’d scare the living daylights out of next door’s cat when it pops over the fence to foul up your flowerbed!

An increasing number of couples choose not to have a wedding list, but welcome gifts or financial support toward the costs of their wedding. Gift vouchers can be a great way for parents of the bride and groom, family, friends and work colleagues to contribute toward the cost of photography of your wedding day, or wedding album.
Gift vouchers are available to purchase from Cai Graham Photography in denominations of £25 or more and can be posted as you require.
If you would like to place an order, please contact us including your name, name of the recipient and the value of vouchers you require.
