So, here we are in the first few days of 2021 and I am sure we are all glad to be waving goodbye to 2020.
It has not been an easy year for anyone and my heart goes out to all of those who have been adversely effected by this pandemic, especially to those that have lost family members, friends and loved ones.
I have been lucky. I have not lost anyone close to me and the things I have lost can be remade, rebooked or rearranged. They are indeed just things!
A few of my weddings did go ahead and I am so pleased they did. In the early days of 2020 the ones I had the pleasure to photograph happened just as planned, although Charlotte and David's wedding which was only two days before the first national lockdown, did cut it fine.
Then the others that followed were all small, intimate Covid friendly weddings.
And I have to say, those weddings were some of my favourites, ever. They were an absolute joy! I don't think I have ever had so much time and freedom to capture those special wedding day photographs. Time is normally a luxury at a wedding, when the hustle and bustle of the day mean that the Bride and Groom don't get a minute to themselves, but with the advent of limited numbers and no disco's to be ready for, I really had the opportunity to make sure that every couple was blown away with the selection of amazing wedding day photographs that I captured for them.
I have put together a small video featuring some pictures from the weddings this year, I hope you enjoy them and see just how special all the weddings in 2020 were no matter how big or small they were!
And now we soldier on into 2021 feeling optimistic for the year ahead, although I am sure it will still be sometime before we can consider this sorry episode is well and truly behind us.
To my Bride and Grooms who have postponed, your day will come and when it arrives we will laugh louder, cry harder and party like there is no tomorrow!
And I for one cannot wait.
If you need a photographer for your day, please get in touch. I would love meet you for coffee to hear more about your day, I can show you some more of my work and we can see if we get on. Give me a ring on 01904 533476 or drop me a line on [email protected]
