THE PANDEMIC PLAN

Wedding dates used to be pretty fixed. Once you locked your names in and booked your venue, nothing short of a global catastrophe could shift it. Now that the global catastrophe is here, I've made a few changes to help locked-down lovers plan their masked-up matrimony with confidence.

WHAT'S STAYING THE SAME

To book in a wedding, I take a non-refundable $1000 deposit.

CHANGING YOUR DATE

Previously, changing your date would forfeit your deposit. I'm now offering one change of date for free. Remember to stay in touch with me - I always have dates open. If you select a date that I'm unavailable, your deposit will be forfeited.

If COVID forces you to change again, I will discount your new deposit to $500 instead of the regular $1000.

This plan will remain while the Government maintains restrictions affecting guest count, venue capacity, permission to sit/stand, mingle or dance. If these restrictions are removed, my old booking policy will resume.

STAYING SAFE

For weddings in NSW, you can find updated information here. I would love my couples to be mindful of making their day safe as possible.

Most of my coverage stays the same. A few changes to expect :

- I may be wearing a mask, depending on the venue and if we are indoors / outdoors.

- For group photos, I won't know which guests are part of the same household. I'll be asking people to stand however close they feel comfortable, and photographing that as-is.

- If there isn't enough space to pass the 4sqm rule, I will either photograph from outside the space (if possible, such as with a marquee) or leave the premises. My safety affects not just you and your guests, but also my other weddings and of course my family. I don't expect this to be an issue but it's still important to keep in mind.

LOVE IS NOT CANCELLED

Couples are placing more thought into what makes their weddings meaningful for them. I'm seeing an increase in smaller weddings & elopements, which allow you to connect with every one of your guests in a more intimate setting. I can't wait for the return of the d-floor, but I'm excited to capture new forms of celebration. The focus has always been on the connection between two people and that will always be the same!
