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.

Micro wedding Pricing

The last few months have proved that flexibility is key. From fast-paced changes to restrictions, suppliers counting in the guest tally then not, to dates being pulled forward and pushed back, I have worked closely with all of my couples to accommodate their changing plans during the Covid pandemic.

I have photographed micro weddings with just the ceremony, formals and portraits when receptions weren’t allowed. And there were some that weren’t allowed a photographer during the ceremony, so I photographed their post ceremony celebration. And there were many others that were a combination of these.

Each of these weddings were beautiful and full of emotion and I put together pricing that would accommodate every wedding and to fit their needs and reflect the conditions at the time. I also set up a full Covid policy to answer any questions.
