From the Desk of A Wedding Photographer During COVID 19

Dear  Journal,

I’m writing to you today as I head into the middle of my seventh week of lockdown. At first it didn’t seem so bad. I was hyped up about spending more time with my children, even the idea of homeschooling, jumping on the trampoline and making healthy dinners was all full of positive energy. But as the weeks of gone by and my diary has turned from green to purple to red; I can’t help but feel the stress of what is happening to the wedding industry.

5 Reasons Why You Should Love Your Wedding Dress

14 years…. I am not sure where the time has gone, but somewhere in that period of time I have managed to have three kids, start a business as a Gloucestershire wedding photographer AND still fit in my wedding dress!!!

Now don’t take away my excitement by reminding me that my wedding dress is a lace up and so it has the luxury of being kind to my broken body; which may have eaten one to many Cadbury eggs…. I still fit!

I am heading into my seventh week of lockdown. Gloucestershire weddings are being postponed into August and I was feeling sad. I was down and needed something to make me smile. But most importantly something to help me remember why I am where I am. So I went to my wedding dress. Got it out. Put it on. And ran.

As a Gloucestershire wedding photographer, I am lucky to photograph weddings all over the Cotswolds. In March, the weather is uncontrollable and unpredictable. The gardens haven’t gone into full bloom yet and we are all waiting patiently for the signs of spring to come forth. So to help beat the winter blues, a very small team of Gloucestershire wedding suppliers decided to inspire our couples by creating what we see as true old English romance.

Why You Should Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer | Money you won’t regret spending

As a wedding photographer, I have learnt to think SUPER FAST on my feet and create magic in my camera as it unfolds before me. I don’t have time to move people around or tell my clients “Ok, if you could just walk down the aisle a little slower” or “If you could just laugh at this precise moment that would be great” or “can you just make a magical kiss by tipping your bride back right when I say go”… yup… those moments they don’t happen. I have to be ready for what I think is going to happen next to help make time stand still for your moment to become a picture. And I love it.
