The UK in lockdown has meant there will no longer be social gathering in the country for the foreseeable future. Weddings that have been planned for many months are being cancelled and postponed. As of March 23rd, no weddings are to take place over the next 3 weeks and no social gatherings of more than 2 people. Although it will be reviewed in April, it seems unlikely that weddings and social gatherings will be reinstated for some time.
My weddings up until end of May have all been postponed to a later date. I’ll be monitoring the situation closely to see how my weddings later this year might be affected, and I’ll be in touch with my couples as appropriate.
It’s a particularly difficult time for many of us in the wedding industry, for wedding venues that have had to close, and suppliers and photographers who have seen their livelihoods, careers and only source of income wiped-out for the foreseeable future. A lot of couples and those planning weddings may no doubt have their own financial difficulties coming out of this pandemic as we all face an economic downturn, forecasted to be worse than the financial crisis of 2008.
To do my bit to help couples and to try to stimulate and boost weddings and bookings, I’ve made the decision to offer 15% off all wedding selections for new bookings for weddings in the rest of 2020. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer, and is subject to availability on your wedding date. This offer may also be withdrawn at any time, such as when I can no longer feasibly take on any more weddings due to work capacity. In the event that your wedding date later this year needs to be postponed due to the ongoing pandemic, we will work with you to move your booking to a new date where possible.
