My summer season started with Claire & Nick who spent two weeks in isolation when they traveled back to the UK from their home in Denmark so they could have an intimate wedding with their closest family & friends. Their day was my first insight into a socially distanced wedding and also my first experience wearing a mask while taking photos – that was fun! (my viewfinder fogged up almost instantly so that proved to be a bit of a challenge but I soon managed to work with it)
Since then I have worked with a variety of couples who have all faced their own challenges, some made the snap decision to go for it within a few weeks, others were forced to change their plans two or three times and some managed to add something new into their day because they had to scale back on other things. Despite the journey, they all made the most of it and had the perfect day.
Once of my couples from the summer, Bronte & Nathan, have since sent me a wonderful review – “After moving to our plan B wedding since New York was no longer an option (thanks Covid!) we were excited about getting married but weren’t sure how our super small and now intimate wedding would plan out. We had a bigger celebration booked in for 2021 but the pictures we got back from Katrina actually made us re-think the whole thing and we ended up scrapping the bigger do! The day was just incredible and Katrina’s pictures were the icing on the cake”
This just shows how powerful an intimate wedding can be and how important the photography is to document the moment and remember it for years after.
