I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve now self-published the second edition of Ooh Yes I Do! The ultimate gay & lesbian wedding planner. Today I received the first print and I must say, I’m very chuffed with the result. The book was self-published in 2013 and since then more countries introduced same-sex marriage. The book was in need of corrections and updates which made the revision necessary.

The original photography has been edited and enhanced. A thin black border has been added to all photography.
Revised books keep their original titles and are often published as new editions. The revised edition of Ooh Yes I Do! will be called a second edition and keeps the same cover, contents and ISBN number.
