Our first COVID wedding…
Shanay and Byron had originally booked their wedding in the beautiful local Queen’s Park, an outdoor natural ceremony. COVID came along and changed the game so that we all must comply with the COVID safe guidelines to look after everybody.
As time got closer, many couples chose to say their vows within their reception venues, who have strong safety plans in place. All of our industry were and are still keeping a close eye on the rules and guidelines, 30 was the limit for an outdoor ceremony without someone to take responsibility for the event with a COVID plan. Shanay and Byron made the decision to move their ceremony to the reception venue. At this time we were looking further into what was required, as who knows how long this will go on for. We did some courses, made enquires and became accredited to run safe events.
On the day that Shanay called to cancel the park booking, we arranged a meeting at the park to discuss the possibilities. As we talked and paced out where the arbour would sit and where the aisle would be, Shanay’s face grew more and more excited, and suddenly Byron said “look at you!” She was beaming. This was a shining example of what we do – make people’s dreams come true!
The day arrived, the plans all came together and the stunning Queen’s Park Lagoon was the stage for the ceremony.
We were able to bring these two beautiful souls together, just the way they had imagined.
