Micro Weddings on the Increase!
The dreaded COVID – has affected so many of us in so many different ways. The Wedding & Event Industry has been one of the hardest hit. With COVID around (and potentially around for years to come) our industry and beautiful clients have had to adapt being able to change plans with a moments notice.
A micro moment
Weddings in 2021 are having their micro moment. We love the big weddings, don’t get us wrong, but there’s something really special about the intimate style. Surrounding yourself literally with only your nearest & dearest, not having to invite that long-lost cousin.
Once upon a time you would elope in order to have that smaller style wedding with just a select few – but now do the intimate thing a little closer to home!
Being able to adapt in the current climate, means instead of putting off that magical wedding day you have dreamt of for years – why not just rejig it to a more intimate occasion. Because you can’t keep putting life on hold for a pandemic!
