Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to summing up 2020 and weddings. It was an absolute bin fire. But in amongst all the heartache, the stress and uncertainty that many couples were battling, Becky and Martyn snuck in with a micro wedding that was an absolute tonic to the pandemic gloom. It may have been small, but it was big on emotions, big on laughs and big on personality!
We originally contacted Laura to conduct a personal and meaningful ceremony for our wedding. We started discussions around 8 weeks before the date. However, with 2020 even the best laid plans don’t survive very long. Rather than delay or cancel again, we made the bold move to bring forward our wedding, leaving just 4 days to prepare! When we approached Laura with our bonkers idea she not only embraced it but was wholly enthusiastic and supportive. She worked tirelessly to craft a beautiful ceremony in an impossibly small amount of time, and guided both bride and groom separately in writing vows and speeches.
On the day Laura helped us with the usual nerves, and skillfully adapted to last minute delays and changes to the schedule. There was laughter and tears from all, it was every bit as special and marvelous as we’d wanted, even with all the restrictions of a 2020 wedding.
After the event we received comments from all of our guests saying it was the most romantic and moving ceremony they’ve experienced (I quote “…the nicest I’ve ever been to.”). The compliments just keep coming – and they are all credit to Laura.
