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.

Bowood Hotel | Wiltshire Wedding Photography | Autumn Wedding

Moving to an entirely new country is daunting. I know because I am Canadian and now living in the UK.

Coming to England to marry and then moving on to the US with her wonderfully new husband was no easy task, but she sure makes it look easy.

Pauntley Court Wedding | Sara and Chris

A September wedding of dreamy weather, venue and people. I can’t help but fall in love with Pauntley House every time I drive down the little lane with fields welcoming me on either side.

My first time at Pauntley Court was actually before Pauntley became a wedding venue. One of my clients was getting married in the church, with a marquee on her parent’s farm for the wedding breakfast. In need of somewhere to take their family for wedding photographs, Melissa was approached about using her beautiful gardens; and Melissa being Melissa said “absolutely!”

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.
