For some couples, an intimate wedding ceremony is a better fit. What may be more “you” is a small ceremony on the beach. Or a more relaxed backyard ceremony. A family picnic with a ceremony in the middle of it. A brilliant scheme to hoodwink your loved ones with a surprise wedding (oooh, I have ideas…:). Or running away on a group elopement (since everyone is going to have to travel anyway.)
Whatever the plan, you are inviting only the people who matter most, and you want to feel fully connected to them, to capture the love that you have for each other and for your cherished guests. And while your day is smaller in size, it’s gigantic in its importance to you…you want your ceremony to be the centrepiece of your day…authentic, whole-hearted, and real.
In such an intimate setting, any outsider can seem like a stranger. I’ll make sure that doesn’t happen for you.
And because your guests are fewer (20 or less), we can actively involve kids and parents and pets and…well…everyone. It’s a whole different energy…a space full of love.
K&A’s most important people travelled from all over the country. Over almost a week, they got to know eveyone, and in the middle, they helped to get them married. Oh so many photos full of absolute joy…captured stunningly by Jon Mark Photography. You can see more images of their wedding here.
Microweddings and Co-Vid 19
The really great thing about the microweddings I’ve created with my couples is they can be pulled together easily in a fairly short time. What matters most is that you are together with the people you love the most, celebrating the love you have for each other and the love among you. And the magical things that happen when everyone is right there with you and for you in a moment that will not pass by again.
And while you can have a mini-version of your big event complete with all the fixin’s, you can also do something that is adventurously safe and budget-friendly (words that are refreshingly welcome during pandemics…:)
