There's no doubt that the hardships experienced by most this year were life-changing and entirely unexpected. It's become the norm to queue outside supermarkets, stay 2 metres apart and, for many, wear face masks in the street. Coronavirus has literally changed the world.
The recent update regarding weddings during this pandemic are as follows.
Maximum number of guests has been slashed to 15 people (28 September 2020)
Ceremonies should be kept as short as reasonably possible
No food or drink should be consumed as part of the event Hands must be washed before and after the exchanging of the rings
Singing, shouting or playing music at a volume that makes people raise their voice should be avoided Speaking during the ceremony – for example saying the responses to the vows – should not be done with a raised voice
Playing instruments that are blown into should be avoided
When singing or chanting is required, only one person is allowed to do so
Venues should try to help people keep social distance with markings on the floor as guidance
A large number of my own clients have postponed their weddings until next year or 2022 (often up to two times). I am very understanding of the situation. It is out of everybody's control. Please stay positive, and should you require a photographer, I will attempt to beat any quote you have received.
What am I doing to ensure paramount safety while limitations and restrictions are still in place?
I am wearing a high quality face covering for the entirety of each wedding
I am remaining at least 2 metres from everybody wherever possible
My decisions are made primarily from a perspective of safety
I am sure that none of the above will be necessary as time progresses into Summer 2021, but I will not take any chances to put our valued customers in danger until restrictions have been formally lifted. I assure you that your safety is my number one objective, yet I ensure it will not impact the quality of my photography.
