Which do you prefer?
Did our usual wedding photography thing earlier this year in sunny Hampshire, and wondered, do we prefer the term small or intimate when it comes to close family/friends only on the guest list? I personally prefer the term ‘intimate’ over calling a wedding ‘small’ and don’t get me started on labelling them COVID weddings- that sounds insulting.
Intimate wedding evokes feel-good emotions, happiness and smiles. Small wedding shouts ‘done on the cheap and last minute with minimal planning’ and COVID wedding has no romance or emotion attached to the term. COVID wedding is a statement about something that happened during the global pandemic of 2020, rather than a memory of a wonderful day with a very select bunch of loved family and friends.
Intimate weddings are soooo 2020…
I’m glad we got that sorted, I feel better now.
Anyway, I digress as usual. I’m not feeling the usual caffeine surge, so who knows where this will lead. Maybe I’ll bullet point, or maybe the tired and lazy git trapped in me will write, “Here’s some images. Fab day. Check ’em out and holler if you like this kind of thing..”
I’ll go grab another coffee… brb…
Here’s a few of their memories, scroll through if y’can be bothered… meh…
Only kidding, I’m not that lazy!
Intimate wedding topic aside, this really was intimate wedding personified. 15 guests for the church. Another 15 waiting outside. 30 guests in total crossed the road for a garden party. Socially distanced, completely responsible. Masks on faces, no alcohol served (I may have fibbed about the no alcohol!)
Literally the other side of the road from the church. Auntie’s house and garden comes to the rescue. Plus a 10min walk from here (5min drive as still loaded with gear) and a gloriously warm sunny day. Garden party with barbecue and immediate family. What’s not to like?
I think the pictures will tell their story better than my ramblings, so here’s a few memories of that epic day earlier this year. The warm sunny weather is but a distant memory, but these memories will last a lifetime…
Y’see, we do shoot intimate weddings as well as the large numbers of a lavish affair. And still an all-day story too, doesn’t have to be a 2hr ceremony shoot only just because of the restrictions on numbers. So, yeah, if you’d like to hear more, and more importantly, chat ideas about your day (it’s your day after all, not mine) then drop me a line here. Alternatively, go and check out the stuff in here and message me for a chat. It doesn’t only have to be about a small or intimate wedding in Hampshire, we do our photography thing all over.
