When planning your dream wedding, it may seem like finding the love of your life and getting engaged was the easiest part of it all. That being said, this rollercoaster of emotions and planning is one predominantly characterised by highs, butterflies in your belly, and quality time spent with those that you love most.

It’s been wonderful this weekend to see weddings going ahead again, and we’re feeling really positive for the summer now. Just to have celebrations back is EVERYTHING – and the joy from couples and photographers on our insta is REAL! We have everything crossed for the summer months returning (safely) back to normal. Here at English Wedding we’ve learned that flexibility is key. Being able to make changes at short notice is essential – despite the roadmap out of lockdown stating that by June 21st the number of guests allowed at wedding ceremonies will be unlimited, it’s important to remain open-minded that this could change depending on how the pandemic plays out in the upcoming months.

Whether you’re newly engaged or you’ve waited for your big day through multiple postponements, this summer is shaping up to be full of joyful celebrations as we finally seem to have an end in sight to social distancing rules and COVID restrictions.

We think weddings this summer will be a little special – naturally all weddings are happy occasions to be celebrated, however this year they come with the additional celebration of family and friends coming together once again and seeing each other for the first time in what feels like forever!
