A few weeks ago the government announced their roadmap out of lockdown. Since then we have seen cases continue to fall, the vaccine rollout continue to be successful and then yesterday, the good news that we had all been hoping for, it was announced that Step 2 can proceed as planned!
When the roadmap was announced I decided that I would set myself a little challenge to count down the days to "normality" and also spread a little love and positivity. Ever since we hit the milestone of there being 100 days to go until all restrictions are lifted, I have been posting one wedding photo a day on Instagram, working my way back through each of the weddings that I have photographed one by one. All being well, I will post my 100th wedding to coincide with Step 4 of the roadmap and therefore mark the end of the restrictions.
I've enjoyed the challenge and have been grateful for something positive to focus on. I can't believe that I am already 25 weddings in... thats 1/4 of the way closer to the end of the restrictions which definitely makes me happy! It's been lovely to go back over all of the weddings that I have photographed - there are so many happy memories attached to each and every event and I'm enjoying being reminded of the details and moments that made each wedding unique.
Below you will find the 25 weddings that I have shared so far. From intimate weddings in Chippenham to large wedding celebrations in the Cotswolds. From canine guests to beautiful sunsets and space-hopper races. From my most recent wedding on Christmas Eve 2020 through to a beautiful intimate celebration which took place in September 2019. To see that I actually managed to shoot 25 weddings in the space of 15 months is actually pretty amazing considering everything that happened in 2020. It's all down to my wonderful couples and their tenacity and determination to make sure their wedding dreams became a reality!
I'm excited to continue my retrospective further back in time and see what wonderful photos and memories I can uncover. If you want to join me on the journey, please follow me over on Instagram. I still have 75 weddings to share before I reach my goal!
