A little reminder that love isn't cancelled and this wedding in July 2020 proves just that. Originally planning a large, marquee wedding and with this not being possible at the time, Beth and Ben decided against postponing and, as soon as they were able to, adapted their plans to fit the current restrictions, allowing them to tie the knot in front of their nearest and dearest at an intimate church ceremony in Suffolk. You can really feel the love at this small wedding with beautiful beach portraits. And for wedding favours? Well of course, homemade face masks!

What Made Our Day Unique

It wasn't the day we had planned. But it was incredible. We had planned a big church wedding, with a sit-down meal in a marquee, excessive amounts of flowers and a vintage dodgem track. All set in the idyllic Suffolk countryside. The only thing which didn't change was the flowers. We married in a different church with 27 family and friends there. Borrowed the father of the grooms Aston Martin and embarked on the most incredible journey around Norfolk and Suffolk.

Wedding in July 2020

For this couple, they wanted to celebrate their love and despite the setbacks, they were determined to do just that and have a wedding in July 2020! Keeping some traditions, the bride wore a beautiful lace Justin Alexander wedding dress flanked by her bridesmaids who wore navy blue dresses, all carrying gorgeous bouquets from Fig & Roses - one of the only aspects they kept the same from their original plans! The day was finished off with a takeaway pub dinner - simple but perfect!

Inspiration & Styling

It was all about love. All we wanted to do was marry. We visited our favourite beach, the grooms farm, a brewery and our local pub for a take away supper. I've been working as a nurse in our local ED over the pandemic and my husband is a farmer. We've been busier than ever and its brought home to us how precious these opportunities are. Yes, we could have postponed until the autumn or wait until next year for the day we had originally planned, but we didn't know what was going to happen. We can still celebrate when were allowed but were happily married with just no pressure.
