Crazy times we're living in huh?

Whether you're here because you've already booked a wedding before COVID hit, you're looking at having to postpone for the first (or second or third time!) or booking a 2022 wedding and uneasy about what planning a wedding with all this uncertainty means, I have brought together lots of information for you on this page.

This is all unprecedented times and none of us have dealt with this before so if there is something in particular you're worried about, just reach out and I'd be more than happy to have a conversation with you about it.

Update as of July 19th 2021


Weddings are back! In their full glory and with no legal restrictions! Venues are taking very different approaches to this so I suggest speaking to your venue to find out their stance on it. Registrars too are seemingly reluctant to let go of any of the old laws (masks, socially distanced seating etc and number caps) so make sure you check with them where they stand so you don't get any suprises on the day!


COUPLES PLANNING YOUR WEDDING FOR THE FIRST TIME


I know this such a strange time, you're excited about your wedding in 2022 or even 2023 and want to get booking but feel unsure. There has been a lot of noise about the negative encounters with suppliers when it comes to postponing, but the majority of us are here to support you and have put in place fully flexible plans for COVID. I asked a few of my 2020 couples for their real life experiences when it came to postponing their weddings which might help put your mind at ease
