I ran out of space trying to come up with the right title for this blog post.
To truly do Jade & Thomas’ day justice the title should be:
Jade & Thomas' Beautiful, Autumnal, Halloween Themed, Fully Vegan and Covid-19 Safe Wedding Day at Whirlowbrook Hall
Amidst all the disappointment and heartbreak of 2020, Jade and Thomas managed to carve out a beautiful, intimate wedding celebration on the day they always intended to get married, which happened to be the anniversary of their first date.
They do still intend to have a ‘proper’ wedding day next year once they are allowed to have all their friends and family in attendance, so with all being well this is only part one for these two.
I must say I was very impressed with how the staff at Whirlowbrook Hall had managed to maintain excellent service levels despite current restrictions.
This was even more impressive to me when I realise it was only actually one person running pretty much everything front of house, with a skeleton kitchen crew making the food. Having worked in hotels before myself I would never underestimate what a huge amount of effort went into the running of the day.
For me, having not photographed a full wedding day since March, a clear 7 months prior to today, it was a true return to form. Yes there were only 11 guests, and they couldn’t sing or dance, this was still a heck of a wedding day.
Not just a great Covid-19 safe wedding day, a great wedding day by any standard.
And of course it rained for most of the day, so there was some normality at least.
