The “New Normal” that this Covid pandemic has created has led to considerable changes with regards to Weddings. It is forcing many couples to either postpone all together, or increasingly to look for a flexible photography option that better reflects what they are allowed to do.

The new range of flexible Wedding packages from Rob Helliwell Photography reflects this new dynamic situation.

As well as the usual Full day packages, I have launched a number of more intimate wedding packages. These reflect the trend for couples to go ahead with the ceremony, with just the allowed numbers, or to arrange an elopement style flexible option that can open up a vast array of options. One great advantage of the new normal is that for some couples they can really focus on exactly what they want, and where they wish to spend their wedding day. It takes away some of the pressures that so often accompany fitting everything into one day. Couples can then plan to hold a larger gathering when restrictions are lifted.

The essence of these more intimate packages, is a reduction in the time and therefore the cost. The Intimate package gives you your photographer from Bridal prep, through the ceremony itself, and then onto a gorgeous couple shoot. When we meet ahead of the Wedding, we can customise your package to reflect your day. I’m finding that some couples want to have their ceremony, and then head off somewhere personal and gorgeous for their couples shoot. We can really take our time here, as we will not have the time pressures of a more traditional Wedding day. This will take away the stress, and help us enjoy the process of capturing beautiful images. The suggested 4 hours coverage is not set in stone, and if we travel out for the shoot then I’m not going to worry, I’ll be enjoying the day along with you!

If you are then planning to have a larger gathering at a later date, then this can be booked as an additional option. A selection of these available options are found on the website. As with everything the basic details are there to help with your planning, but we are not limited to just those stated. If you decide to engage me as your photographer we’ll be meeting up, when I’ll be looking to understand exactly what would be best for you, and together planning your perfect day.

So, do please explore my website, and in the Wedding approach section you will find some more details of your options. All Wedding photographers are expecting things to get increasingly busy as we head out of lockdown. Do get in contact via the website, or via my presence on Instagram or Facebook to express your interest. You can secure your booking with just a £200 retainer, and pay the balance 2 weeks before the Wedding day.

I do hope this Blog has been useful, and that your Wedding planning goes really well. I look forward to speaking more after you get in touch.
