Wandsworth Town Hall Wedding
Katie & Lian were the first post-lockdown couple to have a Wandsworth Town Hall wedding the very next day after the first lockdown ended. Even though they had planned a simple wedding pre-Covid, they were told only 9 days ago that their wedding would go ahead after all.
They quickly gathered 6 close friends, grabbed some confetti, their masks, hand sanitiser and a bouquet and got married! Their family watched along on zoom, and they plan to celebrate more when it’s safe to do so.
If you’re planning on reducing your wedding numbers for whatever reason, read our blog on micro weddings here.
More than ever, I’m reminded of how important it is to have a photographer document these crazy and special times in our lives. How these images will help Katie & Lian’s friends and family feel like they were there on the day they said “yes” to life together.
Wandsworth Town Hall Elopement
There is so much to learn about eloping from Katie & Lian. These were my takeaways;
Wear what you like! Katie opted for something that not only looked elegant but made her feel comfortable, and like her self!
Small touches make a difference. Don’t forget to grab things that will make you & the day feel special. Get a bouquet, some confetti, some champagne! It’s still your wedding day after all!
Stay safe & keep your guests safe. Safety comes first – make sure your guests have masks & hand sanitizer.
Put someone in charge of the tech & video calls. You don’t want to be panicking about Zoom connectivity issues – put someone in charge of streaming your wedding & handling the calls.
Hire a photographer! Even if you do hire someone only 9 days before your wedding – DO IT. So many people won’t be at your wedding, so it’s super important to make sure that your day is captured!
Add in celebrations, before, & after. Katie & Lian hung around the courtyard at Wandsworth Town Hall & Registry office afterwards, just spending time with their guests and celebrating the fact that they got married!
Plan fast! You don’t need months to plan a wedding. If you want to get married – do it!
