Gloucestershire Wedding Photography; Twenty Twenty One…Over and Out

December 27, 2021

Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds and Beyond Wedding Photography

Wedding Season 2021….The one where we had to fit TWO wedding seasons into 5 months.

The wedding season of so many ‘firsts’ such as signs saying ‘spread love not germs’ , QR codes on wedding ceremony doors, hand sanitiser instead of wedding favours, sit down drink receptions, outside dance floors, live streamed ceremonies, FaceTime guests, home garden receptions, split wedding days with micro ceremonies then big parties, unexpected little baby guests and of course…facemasks and shields.

When I sat to gather up images from this absolutely BONKERS year, I got quite emotional. After 16 months of being benched and only shooting miniature weddings for emergency cases, we all tip-toed back in Spring of 2021 not really knowing what to expect. The restrictions DIDN’T lift when they were were promised, and again, the wedding industry and its couples pivoted and adapted. Im so very proud of the resilience that we have shown as an industry, particularly as a predominately self employed and female led group, the government left us to tread water with hardly any help or guidance. We lost a lot of good suppliers, and no-one is coming out of this the same people we were in 2019. Thank you to What About Weddings for tirelessly campaigning to the ‘Powers That Be’ for us all.

THANK YOU to every single one of my couples for putting their faith in me to immortalise their memories in beautiful imagery, and for their patience and understanding in these crazy times. WE MADE IT!!

My first wedding of the year was for my lovely friend Esther, who has worked as a wedding florist for like a million years. Her fiancé had just been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and they were allowed a wedding ceremony of 6 people in under 36 hours notice. It breaks my hear that I never will get the opportunity to photography Esther and Stuart Bathers big wedding party, as Stu lost his battle just last month. I dedicate this blog to them. The Stuart Bathers Foundation is in the process of being set up by his wife Esther to help future patients with brain tumours.

I would like to also raise a glass to Lauren, a beautiful mother of two I had the absolute honour to photograph with her children before she lost her valiant fight to Triple Negative Breast Cancer in October.

I was lucky enough to see an old friend and colleague Cath at a wedding this year, and again, absolutely gutted to hear she also lost her battle a few short months later.

To friends and family that can’t be with us…. this one’s for you.

 

Oodles of OobaLove,

Sheryl xxx
