Love is not cancelled – Lockdown love stories

Lockdown Love…

Zoe and Christian had planned a June 2020 wedding, which sadly was postponed due to the lockdown.

They decided to go ahead with the later.

Other couples just want to get married, to celebrate their relationship, and find some good amongst the chaos of this year and so are embracing the elopement or ‘micro wedding’.

I feel for every single couple faced with the decision at the moment, it’s a real mind field and there has been so much disappointment. It’s heartbreaking to watch your plans change and morph, to be taken away from you, and to figure out the next steps. But know this, whatever you decide to do…follow your gut, go with your heart and do what is right for you as a couple.
