Emily and Tom – An Intimate COVID Wedding
Emily and Tom should have tied the knot on 25th May 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the couple was one of many who were forced to change their wedding plans. On 16th August 2020, Emily and Tom were finally able to get married at Wellbeing Farm, within COVID restrictions.
Emily and Tom were originally due to get married in May but had to postpone due to COVID lockdown. Their new August wedding was Wellbeing Farm’s first wedding ceremony since March! Local lockdown hit the week before the couple’s new date, so wedding planning was all a bit touch and go. However, Wellbeing Farm made the bride and groom feel quite relaxed under the circumstances. The virtual meeting put their minds at ease. In fact, they were able to have more meetings than were planned as the guidance kept changing! So, after countless zoom meetings to assess the latest coronavirus guidance, the wedding was able to go ahead. All while following local guidance and government restrictions, of course!
Coronavirus government restrictions were taken in stride by the wedding party. After being informed of the need to wear masks, the mother of the bride and the bride’s aunt handmade masks to match the guest outfits! Also, Fairytale Brides made a mask for Emily to match her dress just in case she needed to wear one.
A Dream Wedding, Despite Coronavirus!
Emily and Tom were still able to have a say in how the barn was decorated (with exceptions beyond the venue’s control!). The barn was beautifully decorated with a blossom tree arch from Let Love Blossom, bunting, fairy lights and illuminated love letters.
The bride and groom were thrilled they could still use the ground for photos, such as sitting on the tractor, shot by their fab photographer, Shot by Amy. Also, the newlyweds were still able to have the llamas and donkeys out for photos. This was one of the reasons they chose their venue in the first place so this was a lovely thing to remain from their original plan.
Wellbeing Farm was able to work with Emily and Tom so they could have their dream wedding while keeping their guests, and themselves, safe under coronavirus restrictions.
