Micro Wedding at Kew
Couples due to get married this year have faced a huge and unexpected dilemma as a result of Coronavirus safety measures: whether to postpone their wedding celebrations until 2021, or to go ahead, adjust plans and hold a more intimate celebration this year. It’s a stressful, emotional and highly personal decision. Having been lucky enough to photograph hundreds of wonderful weddings at Kew and Cambridge Cottage, each one unique and individual, I’ve been talking to my clients and supporting their plans. I was delighted when Tom and Bryony decided to go ahead with their special day at Cambridge Cottage in August this year.
Behind the scenes, lots of careful adjustments and safety measures were put in place by the couple and the amazing wedding planner at Kew to ensure everyone felt safe and no-one was at risk. It was this attention to detail combined with the couple’s determination to go ahead and their wonderfully supportive family that made this wedding a very special one indeed. It was warm, intimate, still highly personal and was a very, very happy occasion. The unusual circumstances could have meant the bride and groom or the select group of guests were uncomfortable, but this absolutely wasn’t the case – in fact, guests were delighted to be able to celebrate with the couple in a calm, meaningful way. It felt all the more significant because those present knew and appreciated the journey the couple had taken to get there.
The bride looked stunning in a classic, elegant ivory dress with fitted lace bodice and sleeves, and stylish lace headband, carrying a vintage, whimsical posy handcrafted with lace and buttons. Bursts of cornflower blue in the groom’s waistcoat and the guests’ outfits added soft hues of colour which contributed to the calm, serene atmosphere. The botanicals in the Prince of Wales conservatory provided a striking, timeless backdrop to the photos and there was something almost dreamlike about having what felt like the entire grounds to themselves.
If you’re still unsure what to do about your wedding celebration, do speak to the wedding organisers at Kew. And if you’re not sure if your photographs will mark the occasion in the way it deserves, please do get in touch. I can create ageless, stylish, reportage-style images which you’ll enjoy looking at for many years to come. Because, despite the unusual circumstances, the most important thing about your day is you. And your smiles will be just as wide as a celebration at the best of times.
