Deaf couple bring big challenge
A HERTFORDSHIRE wedding planner faced one of her biggest challenges when asked to organise the big day for a deaf couple. 
Clare Beckwith planned the marquee wedding for Melissa Mostyn and Miles Thomas, who have both been deaf since childhood. 
She said: 'The main consideration for me was communication and the best way for us to conduct our meetings was either through type talk or email. During the face-to-face meetings I just made sure I spoke slowly so they could lip read and it worked well.'
