Debs & Chris’s micro wedding in Clevedon

Brides cuddling together on Clevedon pier

 

Getting married in 2020 has been an.. er.. interesting challenge. Coronavirus, the lockdown, social distancing, all the restrictions required. The situation is so difficult for everyone, and I feel so much for all the people that have been affected. From all the different wedding suppliers, to the guests, the friends and family members and of course, the couples themselves. One rather lovely solution to the situation, has been to arrange a micro wedding.

Debs and Chris were due to get married in June, but the lockdown situation meant they had to postpone. So I was really delighted when they got back in touch to say that they’d managed to find a date for a micro wedding in July. They were only able to have a handful of guests at the ceremony, and had full social distancing measures in place throughout. The restrictions also meant that they weren’t able to have any sort of drinks reception or party afterwards. But it was still the most wonderful occasion, and clearly an absolute joy for them both to be able to get married.

Their immediate family and closest friends were there to share the micro wedding with them, which was wonderful. Then we headed down to Clevedon Pier afterwards for some photos. Despite managing to pick the wettest day in a blistering summer of sunshine, we actually managed to dodge all the showers and made the most of the incredible skies! It was a really wonderful afternoon and I loved sharing their wedding celebrations. If you do have to have a micro wedding, rather than the bigger one that you had originally planned, there is nothing to stop it being just as special. As you can see…
