Lockdown Wedding Photography
To say 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone feels like a bit of an understatement. When I shot my last ‘proper’ wedding back in February for Jodie & Elliott I couldn’t have imagined just how badly the next few months would be affected by the Corona virus. Back then I was still looking forward to my busiest ever year. It seems so long ago now!
It’s been an especially tough time for couples planning a wedding this year, I can only begin to image the heartache and disappointment of having your dream wedding day ruined by a pandemic. Most couples worry about the weather in the build up to their big day. I’d give anything for a bit of rain to have been the worst thing about the 2020 wedding season!
While most of my couples with weddings this year have decided to push their full day back to 2021, a few couples have decided to get the official part done this year. It’s been a real pleasure to be able to spend 2-3 hours with them, plus their immediate family and friends and capture these small intimate celebrations. I’m looking forward to spending a day with them again in the future as they celebrate with extended family and friends when restrictions have been lifted.
I’ve got one more wedding this year, a full day with Victoria & Stuart at the amazing Deer Park Hall in Worcestershire. I can’t wait to photograph a full wedding day again, even with the current restrictions on numbers.
HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO MY COVID-COUPLES.
Rachel & John.
They got married the first day weddings were allowed again (the 5th date I’ve had for their wedding!).
Victoria & Duncan.
Who were married in church and then walked through a muddy field to get to Victoria’s parents house for a rain-soaked socially distant garden picnic.
Becca & Ian.
They also had a garden party after a church wedding, with a quick trip to a local park for some sunny couple shots.
Laura & Gary.
Who got married at the Lemore Estate in Herefordshire in some glorious late afternoon autumn light.
Here’s a selection of images from their short but sweet celebrations.
