Surrey Wedding Photographers Day Before Lockdown Winter Wedding at Foxhills Manor Ottershaw
We photographed the gorgeous Laura and Chris in November. Their original wedding date was the 6th November 2020.
On 31st October the prime minister announced that we would be going into 2nd lockdown on the 5th November.
This is where phone call ping pong started to see what was achievable before going into lockdown and with the amazing work of the venue, suppliers and the patience of the couple; were able to bring the wedding forward to 4th November – the day before lockdown.
As it was going to be the last time any of us could be out for dinner, socialising; it had a really funny atmosphere. Everyone just felt encouraged, thankful, reflective of having that day together. That made for the most perfect day.
Even though the couple only had a micro wedding, it was a brilliant day. Getting ready was relaxed, the ceremony was full of laughter with a really supportive registrar who could have not been more personable. Drinks reception in the golden sunsetting hour with the roaring fire on in the bar. Dinner in the Orangery with the most incredible light pouring into the tall windows and bathing the tables in light.
The evening reception of course had to change, but the bride had vision for what the evening was going to look like! Cake cut, speeches, a cinema night showing Grown Ups and fireworks. It was just brilliant!
Bridal portraits and the bridal party were my absolute favourite moments; you couldn’t ask for a happier group of people.
Thankfully that was our last wedding of the year and none of our couples got lost in the 2nd lockdown; we are just so pleased that Laura and Chris said their I Do’s with their favourite people around them.
