During this bizarre time we find ourselves in, we are realising how special it is to stay connected with our family and friends. Trying our best to catch up with them over video calls, family zoom quizzes and online parties, and other cool ways to keep ourselves sane and connected. We are really getting creative in how we keep in touch with our loved ones during our time of lockdown and self isolation (who ever thought those would be words I’d write!?)

As Forrest Gump’s mother wisely said “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Looking at the current situation of the world, I think you’d agree she’s quite right.

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.

With love,

 

So I had been watching this cruel, incomprehensible disease rage through the world, slowly at first then gaining momentum hoping and praying it would never, surely reach the UK? How wrong was I?

Two things – when I stop giggling. Two quite important things –

1) this is actually genuinely REALLY beautiful and

2) injecting a little bit of happy chuckling into any lockdown day is the best thing you can possibly do. It’s definitely what solid-haired Rachel & Rowan did on their wedding day last week, in the company of Yorkshire wedding photographer Andy Matheson.

They’re the best-looking Lego couple we’ve EVER featured here on English Wedding, and despite a few mishaps (Rowan slipped and fell on the lentil-confetti, but don’t worry: he was ok) their day is – and now I’m NOT laughing: really, truly, beautifully captured!
