Charlotte & Nathan originally booked me as their wedding photographer for their wedding at Haughley Park Barn in Suffolk. However the government placed coronavirus restrictions to guest numbers at weddings, therefore they decided to move their main wedding reception and party at Haughley Park Barn to next Summer. They chose to carry on with their wedding ceremony, on their original date, despite coronavirus restrictions. Charlotte & Nate chose their local church in Woolpit, Suffolk and had a guest-list of just their very closest family and friends.

This made for a wonderfully intimate occasion, and one I was very happy to be a part of!

Preparation Photographs

I started my photography, as I usually do, with some photos of the Bride’s preparations.

Charlotte’s parents house was the location for not only her morning preparations, but also the small family gathering they’d hold after the church service. My photography of the preparations also show the goings-on in the house and marquee in the buildup to the wedding.

This wedding was taking place during a time when the government had emposed COVID-19 Coronavirus restrictions on weddings. Everyone inside the church, with the exception of the bride and groom, and the bride’s father, had to wear facemasks at all times inside the church. I made sure to take photographs showing the facemasks. It’s certainly (hopefully) quite a unique circumstance we find ourselves in with protection we are giving ourselves from coronavirus, and I want to document the situation and all the unique situations it gives us. So masked photos were taken for a bit of fun, but plenty (most) photos I took without them!

Of course attending a wedding during the government’s 2020 Coronavirus Restrictions I myself wore a facemask for the entire ceremony. As well of course, as the videographer, and of course all of the wedding guests!

Back Home for a Family Gathering

Wedding photographs at home in the garden

A number of the close family were already in the same ‘bubble’ so were happy to stand together for photographs. However I had an idea for a photograph that I knew could help us. I knew I could stand people a safe distance from each other, keeping bubbles separate, and yet create a photo where they did appear to stand together. As you can see in the following photos, the different bubbles can actually be made to appear close, by shooting the group photograph with a very long lens from as far away as possible!

What follows is a larger selection of images, giving a give impression of exactly what Charlotte & Nate received from me. Their full set of wedding photos from the preparation, church service and a short time at the home reception finished at about 600 images!

See more examples of my photography in my portfolio pages, and see all weddings from recent months here. With the limited number of weddings actually being held in 2020, I’m actually extending the length of time these photos will be on display on my website, and I may remove them at any time to make space as new weddings are photographed!
