Most couples hire a photographer to take photographs throughout the day. A skilled professional is able to capture the most beautiful and memorable moments, and you don’t have to worry about handling the task yourself! Many wedding photographers are still taking work during the pandemic, so it will hopefully be easy to source a professional for your needs. Just make sure that they fully understand safety guidelines before you confirm anything!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, it is easier to organise photo shoots that take place outside or in large open spaces. You can request a consultation with your photographer in advance of your wedding to discuss who you will be having group photographs with and who you will/will not be socially distancing from. If you are aware of your guests’ previous social bubbles, this is valuable information to consider as well!

You are most likely spending a considerable amount of time and money on planning your wedding. Every flower, table setting, and ribbon counts! Document your hard work by taking more pictures of the lovely details that have made your wedding day look fabulous. What makes this idea even better is your photographer will be able to take these pictures safely with  guidelines in place.

Throughout your wedding ceremony, guests will be required to wear masks for safety. Fortunately, this rule does not apply to the couple getting married. Therefore, your photographer will be able to take stunning pictures of you walking down the aisle and saying your vows, immortalising those precious moments.


Photographs are important but, ultimately, the best wedding memories are made by enjoying each moment of your special day. For advice on how to best embrace these moments, why not check out our article on minimalism and find out how you can lower your stress?
