2020 has been… a year, hasn’t it.
But amidst all the turmoil, uncertainty and disappointment, especially for couples planning their weddings, it’s been so lovely to see communities coming together, the kindness of strangers and the beautiful support that we have given each other through tough times.
Grasping on to those sparks of positivity, Chloe Tanner Photography and some clever South Australian wedding folk came up with the most divine inspiration for those of you considering a small(er) wedding. We are so excited to bring you this divine inspiration; here’s what Chloe had to say about organising the shoot:
“Earlier this year when SA was only just starting to reopen, and weddings were beginning to pick up again we decided to use the downtime to put together a shoot. We wanted to show you could have something small and intimate, and it still be gorgeous, fun and still feel like just as much as wedding as if you had 100 guests.
The only thing we couldn’t predict (much like a wedding day) was the weather. We powered through the ceremony as we could see lighting in the distance, and just as we were rushing through portraits on the beach, the sky opened up and unleashed an absolute bucket on us. We were actually stuck on the beach to avoid getting any wetter than we were, my assistant had us all wrapped up in an umbrella with an Akubra stuffed under his shirt like an absolute champ trying to avoid getting us any wetter!
So in a round about way we showed with this shoot, that whether it be COVID, rain, hail or shine you can go on with your day and it still be absolutely amazing!”
So please know – if you get married in a rain storm, on a 40 degree day, at a registry office, at your dream venue with 500 guests or anything in between, your day is just that – your day. It will be beautiful, magical, memorable, unique and most importantly, just the beginning of your amazing story together as a married couple.
