Micro wedding & elopement photographer
2020 put micro weddings on the map
When I had my first wedding of the year on the 4th January 2020, I had no idea that a few short weeks later many of my weddings would postpone to 2021 and 2022, and that life as we know it would change so dramatically. Then Covid19 spread across the world and both couples and wedding suppliers found themselves reeling and having to postpone, rebook, replan and change the weddings they had planned.
But as disappointing and frustrating as this was, many couples decided that they still wanted to get married and because their guests couldn’t all attend as planned, their photography suddenly became even more important. Live streaming and micro weddings emerged with a bang.
As a documentary wedding photographer in London I had photographed several micro weddings and elopements before, but 2020 really put micro weddings on the map in a completely new way, and I thoroughly fell in love with them and the couples that chose them.
The determination of both couples and suppliers to make the best of the day, the emotions of celebrating their love and connection during some of the most difficult times in our lives, the fact that each wedding made history and marked the crazy year we have all lived through, showed that love wins and thrives even through a global pandemic.
