How is everyone coping with this lockdown? I’m guessing no couple expected their wedding plans to be thrown into chaos by a global pandemic. “Nobody told me there’d be days like these, strange days indeed” to quote John Lennon.
This year has turned into a nightmare for couples, who having spent months planning their wedding, now face having to postpone or cancel their big day.
Although we continue into 2020 with uncertainty, know with certainty that on my end, I will make everything as easy as possible for your wedding moving forward.
Some of my clients have decided to postpone their original date and move it to the same date in 2021, keeping all their original suppliers. This may then be the simplest thing to do in the long run. Contact each one of your vendors and find out what their reschedule policy is. Know that it might take them a little while to get back to you. During this time, your wedding vendors may be receiving a flood of emails. If your wedding is soon, I suggest typing URGENT in the title.
Most vendors are encouraging re-bookings to be Fridays, Sundays and mid-week. If you place a booking for these days, you are most likely to find a date that all your vendors are free.
For retaining my services and keeping me out of the poor house (as my nan used to say) as your wedding photographer in Berkshire or anywhere else in the UK, I am upgrading couple’s albums as a Thank You. Maybe you can squeeze a treat out of other supplier’s too : )
If your wedding is soon, and you would like to keep the date? While there are restrictions on group gatherings and rules in place around social distancing, we can chat about how I can best document your wedding. Documenting your wedding will be done in a way that is abiding by the current government restrictions and most importantly, by making sure we all feel safe. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
We can chat about how we can ensure that we all feel comfortable and safe while being photographed and photographing during this time. This may look like a conversation about using a zoom. Lens and us setting up realistic expectations for the photos if we are social distancing, maybe the photos will be a little less closeup.
Hopefully, we can all stay safe and come out of this difficult time in one piece, to enjoy an incredible wedding in the not too distant future. No one expected, planned or predicted this and we will work through this together.
Stay positive and take care
