Yesterday in light of travel restrictions and virus implications we spoke (here) about why it’s important to keep on loving and living. Many couples are currently faced with wedding challenges, especially those who had planned to travel to wed or those who have many foreign visitors attending. We understand it’s heartbreaking but we also ask you to take a moment to consider a smaller local wedding. Remember it’s all about marrying the one you love and you can still do that! In fact, weddings are exactly what everyone needs at the moment.

Why not consider a smaller local wedding now with a small group of your nearest and dearest. Small weddings are incredibly beautiful, emotive and romantic. Then share all of your imagery and films from the small event with your extended friend and family group via digital platforms or create prints and send. Seriously people need to see love, weddings and beautiful things right now. And then host a larger party to celebrate on a bigger scale with your wider group in the future when restrictions are lifted. Many vendors we have spoken to are putting packages together to cover you for an ‘in-lopement’ (as we have coined it) now with smaller groups of close family and friends and then for a larger celebration party later. We will start a regular series today to show you how beautiful smaller weddings can be and for now we just wanted to remind you of some of the best spots in Australia to plan that stunning, intimate local wedding…
