Today we hand over to Hampshire-based wedding photographer Jason Williams for his advice when it comes to planning a micro wedding… Without trying to state the obvious, Covid has thrown more than a spanner or two into the wedding works. What we used to take for granted has been taken away from us, and that thing we humans crave most – human closeness – is now almost a long forgotten dream. If you were to list things which describe a ‘wedding’, human closeness would be on that list. The days of 100+ people all gathering to celebrate are well and…

Crisis talks were had with my co-parent and my sister and…
