Micro Wedding Photographer
Small but Beautiful Celebrations
“Seems silly, doesn’t it? A wedding. Given everything that’s going on” – Ginny Weasley
“Maybe that’s the best reason to have it. Because of everything that’s going on” – Harry Potter
I love this quote from Harry Potter, it seems so appropriate for the times we find ourselves in and it sums up my own feelings, why not go ahead with your wedding as a micro celebration? A day of romance and celebrations with those people who are closest to you feels like a ray of sunshine in the midst of a storm. And as an added bonus it’s the perfect excuse to celebrate twice, a beautiful intimate wedding day now, and in the future, when restrictions allow, a wonderful lavish party for all your family and friends.
I’ve photographed 8 weddings since they were allowed to go ahead, one with thirty guests before the rules changed, several with fifteen and one beautifully romantic celebrations with just four guests. Each one has been an incredibly special day, filled with joy and celebrated with the most important people in the lives of the bride and groom. Seeing so much laughter and happiness among these groups of close family and friends during such a terrible time has felt amazing. None of my couples has regretted their decision to go ahead with a micro wedding.
You might think that there isn’t much to photograph at a micro wedding but I haven’t found that to be the case at all, there are still lots of great moments to be captured and with fewer guests, you be able to spend time, and be photographed, with everyone. There’s no need to miss out on beautiful styling and décor at your micro wedding either.
Being able to celebrate twice isn’t the only advantage of a micro wedding. I’ve personally found that the wedding days have felt more relaxed and feedback from couples has confirmed that they have felt the same. With fewer guests on the day, schedules don’t feel as tight and there isn’t the pressure of arranging for large groups of people to travel between locations or the stress of ensuring that lots of people manage to find the correct seats at the wedding breakfast. For anyone who feels nervous about being the centre of attention for a whole day a micro wedding removes a lot of stress and worry, knowing that you are only with a small number of people might just make your day a lot more enjoyable.
The people that can’t be invited don’t need to be completely left out. We’ve all become a lot more comfortable with connecting online so you can always live stream your wedding. My editing times are much faster at the moment and I’m able to provide preview images within a couple of days for you to share with family and friends.
I currently have some special packages available for micro weddings. These start from two hours for those who simply want the ceremony and some portraits afterwards, with a six-hour package currently being the most popular.
I’m going to leave you with a selection of my favourite photographs from recent weddings, if you are considering a micro wedding and would like to discuss your options please feel free to use the contact page to get in touch.
