Small Wedding Photography Packages

Small Wedding Photography Packages

Small wedding photography packages are now in great demand. Due to Covid 19 many brides and grooms have sadly seen their wedding plans drastically altered.

I genuinely feel for all the brides and grooms who’ve had to postpone or cancel their wedding plans for 2020, it must be such a disappointment. For those still getting married this year, the restrictions mean smaller numbers of guests are now commonplace, and perhaps no reception is available, but rather a dinner at a restaurant.

Small Wedding Photography Packages

With this in mind we now offer our midweek Off-Peak wedding packages (previously reserved for Sun-Thurs) on any day of the week for the remainder of 2020 and the start of 2021 (until end of May). These small wedding photography packages start at only £399, so offer you truly exceptional value for money. They may be smaller and cheaper than our luxury packages, but the photographer remains the same, so therefore the quality of your photos remains as high as ever.

If our small wedding photography packages interest you, please see if your date is still available, talk to us asap.

16 Teachings from Covid 19

 


Government Guidelines as of 5th August 2020

The marriage ceremony or civil partnership formation

  • Should only take place in COVID-19 secure environments. Where a marriage ceremony can take place legally in other places not covered by this guidance (such as outdoor weddings that are permitted under the Marriage Act), the legal restrictions on gatherings must be followed for that place.
  • It is advised that the ceremonies and services should be concluded in the shortest reasonable time, and limited as far as reasonably possible to the parts of the marriage or civil partnership that are required in order to be legally binding under the law of England and Wales.
  • Religious communities should therefore adapt traditional religious aspects, especially where celebrations would otherwise have taken place over a number of hours, or even days, to ensure the safety of those present and minimal spread of infection.
  • No food or drink should be consumed as a part of the marriage or civil partnership ceremony unless required for the purposes of solemnisation.
  • Where the exchanging of rings is required or desired for the solemnisation of the marriage or the formation of the civil partnership, hands should be washed before and after. The rings should be handled by as few people as possible.
  • Where an infant is involved in proceedings a parent/guardian or member of the infant’s household should hold the infant.

Social distancing measures

  • All individuals involved in the ceremony (including attendees, guests and officiants) should be signposted to the current stay alert and social distancing guidance and that they or members of their household should not attend the marriage or civil partnership if they are unwell with symptoms of COVID-19. If either member of the couple have symptoms of COVID-19 the ceremony should not go ahead.
  • Wherever possible, adhere to social distancing of at least 2 metres, or 1 mere with risk mitigation (where 2 metres is not viable), between households. For frequently used venues, mark areas using floor tape or paint to help people maintain social distance.
  • You should consider and set out the mitigations you will introduce in your risk assessment. These could include, for instance, avoiding any face-to-face seating by changing layouts, reducing the number of people in enclosed spaces, improving ventilation, using protective screens and face coverings, and closing non-essential social spaces, as outlined throughout this guidance.
  • In England, face coverings are currently required by law to be worn in the following settings: shops, supermarkets, indoor transport hubs, indoor shopping centres, banks, building societies, post offices and on public transport. From 8 August, face coverings will be required by law to be worn in a greater number of public indoor settings including places of worship, museums, galleries, cinemas and public libraries. Please be mindful that there are valid exemptions for some individuals and groups to not wear a face covering in these settings. People are also strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in any other enclosed public space where there are people they do not normally meet.
  • People from different households should maintain social distancing between one another. This may require marriages or civil partnerships to be adapted to remove practices that would otherwise have brought people into contact with one another, unless required for the marriage or civil partnership to be legally binding. Where this is the case precautions should be put in place to minimise contact and ensure the timeframe is as short as possible.
  • Visitors should avoid touching property belonging to others, such as shoes which, if removed, should be placed and collected by their owner while adhering to social distancing principles.

Post-ceremony receptions

Wedding receptions or parties should not currently be taking place and any celebration after the ceremony should follow the broader social distancing guidance of involving no more than 2 households in any location or, if outdoors, up to 6 people from different households.

The government’s roadmap to reopening set out the ambition of allowing small wedding receptions when it is safe to do so. This remains the ambition, but it is not expected that such a change would take place until at least 15 August, at the earliest.
