So here we are still in lockdown and for many of our couples and i am sure for many of you, wedding dates are having to be postponed to later in the year or even next year.
Although this may mean that you have gone from a summer affair to a winter wonderland, or you’ve got another possible 8 months to wait until your day; I’m aiming to focus on the positive here. It also means you have more time for planning and wed-min! Yes ladies and gentleman, you’ve been gifted time.
This is such a rare thing and although i totally anguish with everyone involved and the inevitable challenges that re arranging a wedding can present, it does offer you as a couple the opportunity to really, truly enjoy the approach to the day.
So often planning and the engagement period can be over whelming, even if we do give ourselves a year or two. You have everything planned, scribbled in a notebook or if you are like me in an excel spreadsheet, its just the few final bits - then this scenario comes along to put a rather large spanner in the works.
Breath. Step back. Okay, okay?
I get it, i do but stress and anxiety before your wedding day is only natural and this honestly is a time that some of this can be removed. You have longer to just enjoy each other. Just be in the moments of love and reflection that a long engagement period has to offer and soppy as it might sound, just love each other and remind each other of that, of the reasons you are getting married and all of the wonderful memories you currently hold and all of the incredible one’s which are about to be made.
I remember we had Almost two years to plan our wedding and although it was relatively relaxed it still felt a little stressed, there was still a concentration on the ‘big day’ rather than just us being a couple and making the most of the time we had together rather than filling it with conversations about flower arrangements or canapés.
These sorts of things are awesome, and exciting, and fabulous to do together; however they can tend to encroach a little so with all of my support at this time; i equally send you the reassurance that everything really will be okay. You will still have your day and it will be beautiful in so many ways. Just take this moment to breath, to cherish each other, find strength in one another and the details will iron themselves out. Your day will still be yours just safer and with even more need for a party!
If you have your wedding photography booked with me this year or are looking at dates for approaching celebrations, then don’t hesitate to give me a call and we can discuss any re arrangements. I’m really excited to offer flexibility so just drop me an email and we can manage accordingly.
