The English Wedding Blog is growing every single day: we’ve featured weddings and styled shoots from so many new photographers and our inbox is constantly bursting with amazingness… so I thought I’d write a little note to all of you fabulous wedding photographers who are yet to get published here. I so hope you’ll be in touch soon!
Know your wedding blogs!
I’m beginning to hear the very best of news from a few wedding photographers – that bookings for 2022 weddings are coming in. We almost have vaccines. We’re almost there… and after the toughest year EVER for our industry, I’m feeling positive that couples are going to start booking suppliers in January.
Weddings in 2021 – at least for the first half of the year – will be different. They’ll be few and far between at first. Then they’ll be more frequent but smaller – and I predict that by the height of the summer we’ll almost be back to normal. Where’s that little ‘phew’ emoji when you need him?
Hey lovely wedding supplier friends – I hope you’re all hanging in there. I’ve been email-chatting with a few of you, I know things are really really tough right now. For those of you with weddings in the last few weeks – I’m so happy you’re back out there, doing what you love. For those of you waiting for 2021, I hear you. I don’t mention it much, as I know lovely Annabel has it covered. (And I recommend her Facebook group for suppliers, if anyone’s not already in there.) Anyways – much is happening here at English Wedding HQ. I’d like to think that as the blogger with a small wedding business I understand a little of how this is affecting everyone, on a personal level. (I’m still desperately trying to work out how to pivot…)
In these crazy, scary times, we’re doing everything we possibly can to keep your screens full of beautiful wedding ideas, and to help support all of the wedding photographers and other UK wedding suppliers to shine online and fill their diaries for 2021 and beyond. While weddings are going to be thin on the ground this summer, we’re really keen to share YOUR best bits from 2019 – so whether you’re a wedding stylist with a shoot to share, or a photographer with a real wedding you’d like us to blog, please get in touch!
I’ve always been a solution kind of girl. Perhaps that was the hardest thing when coronavirus really hit the UK back in March: it was an unsolvable thing, 100% out of my control. At first I felt like crawling into a hole until it was all over. I panicked, I cried, I felt numb and scared. I know we’re all going through our own rollercoasters of emotion, and you are absolutely not alone. I have a wedding calligraphy business as well as this blog – and closing it was a really scary thing to do.
