Well, 2020 didn’t quite turn out the way we’d hoped. So many couples had their wedding plans thwarted and chose to postpone until a later date.
Luckily for me, some did decide to press ahead with their plans and one such couple was Sarah and Matt. As the government advice changed on a regular basis, they kept things flexible and prepared themselves for all eventualities. They decided to go ahead with their intimate Surrey wedding at Leatherhead registry office joined only by their immediate families and closest friends, in keeping with the guidelines. It felt very special to document this intimate day, and to witness their absolute joy to finally tie the knot.
It was a beautiful, sunny August day and after the short ceremony, the wedding party made their way to Boxhill, one of Surrey’s most scenic areas with breathtaking views across the North Downs, where they enjoyed a celebratory picnic. Their guests were treated to Franco Manco pizza and a delicious cake by Lolo’s Cupcakes and played party games together. We also made the most of the stunning location to capture some gorgeous and relaxed wedding portraits. Before the pandemic, finding the time to shoot portraits often meant the couple would miss a lot of the cocktail reception or other parts of their tightly-scheduled day, but one of the great positives about having a lockdown wedding is you have all the time you need to relax and have fun creating incredible wedding portraits together. Later that evening, we decided to head to Pewley Down, another beautiful location close to Sarah and Matt’s home in Guildford to catch some golden hour sunlight. The perfect end to an incredible day. Part two of their wedding celebrations took place a few days later, where they held a beautiful outdoor ceremony and reception at Cobham Village Hall. I will post some images from that soon, but in the meantime, enjoy the gallery below.
