A Small Wedding 2020 Style
Continuing with my small wedding blogs today with the wonderful wedding of Beccy and Ter-Er. Interestingly, whilst I was at Hannah and Joe’s small wedding, sat in the courtyard chatting to guests, I get a message from Beccy saying “are you free this weekend?” They had decided to move their wedding from the end of October to end of September in order to get it in before Boris reduced numbers to 15. Not that this stopped anyone. Oh no! More of that to come. Yes even weddings with 15 guests can be awesome! But Beccy and Ter-Er made the right decision. They arranged their wedding in a matter of only a couple of days and I rocked up to photograph it all, and it was brilliant!
I love it when I go to weddings with a real sense of culture and background. It really makes the wedding so personal and unique. Ter-Er’s family are from Nigeria and so decided to cook up a Nigerian feast for the wedding breakfast. The new wedding was now in a marquee in Beccy’s mum and dad’s garden, and some volunteers were helping in the kitchen to serve up massive plates of Nigerian food. I couldn’t just sit around watching them. Instead, I decided to get stuck in and help serve up. So I put my waitressing hat on for a bit to help get the plates from the kitchen to the marquee. In times like these, we’ve all got to muck in, right? Of course I got some too, and it was delish!
I always love making time for portraits. After the church ceremony, I met Beccy and Ter-Er in Wollaton Park for some lovely portraits. They arrived by stretch Limousine and we got some lovely photos under the trees. I asked Beccy and Ter-Er to give me some feedback on their small wedding with reduced numbers. It is safe to say they were pleased they went ahead with it. I enjoy seeing Beccy post the photos on instagram from time to time, which really makes me happy. Here’s what she had to say about their small wedding:
“You feel so loved with the people who mean the most to you there”
What were the benefits of having a small wedding?
Which parts of your day did you enjoy the most?
Which parts surprised you that you thought would be different or awkward or strange with less numbers but actually felt good, better, no different?
Can you pick a photo that brings back a memory that makes you laugh?
Can you pick a photo that makes you happy you went ahead with a small wedding?
Are there any other photos you like that bring back fun/happy memories?
