Micro Wedding @ Morden Hall
Nadine & Aiden
18th August 2022
What do you do when your 200+ guest multi-venue city wedding gets postponed by a serious case of Covid Lockdown? Answer = you go right ahead and get married in the most beautiful, intimate micro-wedding with the closest of family. That is exactly what Nadine & Aiden did. They were determined to get married following months of UK lockdown. The time together made it crystal clear to them that they were perfect for each other, so they went on and booked a micro wedding with the 13 guest limit!. I’m so pleased that they did, as it was such a beautiful August day at Morden Park.
The original wedding date was in May 2020, so was firmly in the first UK national lockdown. We kept in touch across this period, so I could offer support on any questions that came up. Then, when they made the decision to go ahead – with limited guests – I was honoured to be asked to be a witness! This was due to the distancing restrictions, as there were only 2 of the wedding party permitted in the venue with the wedding couple. We had got on so well since we’d first met that Nadine & Aiden asked me to step in to sign, as well as take photos during the ceremony!! I was so pleased to have been asked, as it was truly a pleasure to help in what is an unprecedented year!
The wedding and photos were only for a few hours as the reception had quite sensibly been put back until it’s permitted to have the full complement of guests
Having photographed a number of micro-weddings this year I must say I’m a big fan of them. It’s really refreshing to photograph unrestricted by a wedding schedule (that’s normally required in order to shepherd 200 people). Micro-weddings feel so personal, as without all the guests the day truly belongs to the couple. It’s a very different feel and one that I think has a truly intimate nature..
We had a lot of fun taking photos in Morden Park after the ceremony. They were both up for giving things a go so we had a giggle capturing some honest portraits that really lets their personalities shine.
I can’t wait for part 2 at the reception next year!!
