I know you’re going to love a wedding if I find myself beaming at my screen as I write it all up. And today I did just that, SO many times! It’s not just the beautiful bride and gorgeous groom, and it’s not just Sally Rawlins’ amazing images which are making all my wedding bloggy senses tingle… it’s the words. It’s the heartfelt story of a wedding, the focus on connection and family, and the generous and glowing reviews for some fabulous suppliers, which are wonderful to hear. Gemma & Sam’s day is going into my secret little ‘favourite weddings‘ folder and will most certainly be making a reappearance on the blog one day in the future, for sure!

In the years after the second world war, weddings were low key, frugal and intimate. But I’ve seen family photos of weddings from those years, and they’re beautiful, treasured family heirlooms. They’ve come to mind many times over the last year, as so many couples have had to postpone and downsize the dream weddings they were hoping for.

The simple answer is: yes, you can! There is a little more to it than that though, so read on and we’ll fill you in on everything you need to know about planning live music at your micro wedding.
We’ve all had enough of lockdowns and social distancing and want to get back to times that are precedented… but we’re not quite there yet. That’s fine though, because carefully planned micro weddings are the perfect, intimate way to bypass the delays and get married (at last!). And there’s nothing to stop you having a bigger celebration after all this is over!
As always with a Martin Dabek Photography wedding, I urge you to scroll all the way through to the end for the amazing evening shots, so beautifully lit and breathtaking! Today we’re at Polhawn Fort for gorgeous couple Catherine & Iain’s micro wedding. The pair went through all the stress of postponements and ever-increasing restrictions on guest numbers for their 2020 wedding – but despite being small, this is a really lovely, romantic and heartwarming celebration and I’m proud to be sharing it with you today. Catherine’s dress is a beautiful Stella York gown, and Iain looks fantastic in a navy blue three piece suit. The flowers are glorious, and of course the images by Polhawn Fort wedding photographer Martin Dabek are out of this world.
Even if your hearts are breaking because you can’t invite everyone you’d love to have at your wedding. Even if you’ve had to postpone and reschedule and finally ‘settle for’ a smaller wedding than you’d dreamed of. Even if your spring wedding is limited to just a handful of the guests you’d love to invite… if you’ve planned a very different, much smaller wedding this spring there are some wonderful moments you can look forward to and cherish forever.
