There is really no better feeling than doing what you love. After what feels like an eternity, I am finally back photographing weddings, and it is so wonderful!
Yesterday I photographed my very first wedding of the year, with the absolutely lovely Anni and Mike. They were always keen to have an intimate, micro wedding, but their original guest list of thirty people was cut to just six yesterday at The Old Parish rooms, in line with government guidelines. Not the kind of couple to be deterred, they still went ahead with just their parents present in the Parish Rooms, whilst Anni's brother and wife watched from the window outside, which was so lovely to witness. Honestly, love isn't cancelled!
It was such a strange situation too, because usually I get to meet up with my couples ahead of their weddings, and even do a pre wedding session for them to celebrate their engagement (which was definitely an occasion worth marking after the couple had just celebrated their tenth anniversary together!), but coronavirus made this impossible... so other than meeting them virtually through video calls, I hadn't actually 'met' them until the wedding day! Alas, they were an absolutely lovely couple and we got along so well!
Their wedding itself was so gorgeous. I only covered a few hours, including their arrival, the ceremony, and their group and couple photos afterwards, and yet there are so many lovely moments within that short space of time. It was such a low key, intimate wedding and I just adored it. My boyfriend said to me after 'How was it photographing such a small wedding?!' 'I loved it! I want to almost exclusively do tiny weddings!' I said.
Honestly though, I love all weddings, big and small, and I just feel SO fortunate and grateful to be back doing what I love. Celebrating with others and documenting the most beautiful days.
Thank you so much Anni and Mike for choosing me to be your wedding photographer, you were an absolute joy to photograph and have brought so much happiness into my world!
