The first post in a series of smaller blogs, this is micro wedding photography – Kate + Rob in Surrey. That term seems to have now settled into the wedding photography world to describe the smaller, more intimate weddings that we managed to sneak in around the COVID-19 restrictions that have come and gone, and then come back again, as 2020 melted into 2021.
We had hopes that 2021 would be a fresh start and we’d be back shooting those big days, but for now we wait once again. With that in mind it seemed timely to give some exposure to some of those smaller ones that I did shoot last year. Some had 15 guests, some had 30 when that was allowed. They all had a theme though. Love.
Despite all of the curveballs thrown their way, each of the couples you see rolled with the punches, snuck in where they could, and got it done. They all have big days planned and I’m lucky enough that I’ll get to shoot them twice. Silver linings do exist.
Smaller days means shorter coverage, so I’ve set myself a target of telling these stories in just 30 images. First up is Kate and Rob in Surrey. This was the first wedding after that enormous enforced lay-off from March to August. It reminded me how much I love this job, and how much I’d missed it. They’ll be marrying later this year at Gate Street Barn. It will be immense. After all, today was, despite everything and because of them.
