“The pandemic meant lots of uncertainty, changes of plan, and rather bizarre circumstances but Rob was completely on top of the latest regulations and was so proactive, flexible and just generally really helpful – it was great to have one less thing to worry about when everything was so up in the air.

Neither of us usually enjoy having our photo taken and get pretty awkward in front of a camera, but Rob put us at ease and got such great shots. The photos themselves are absolutely stunning, and everyone who sees them comments on how gorgeous they are. Thank you so much for the a great experience and for the beautiful photographs of our special day!”

Although most of our couples for 2020 had to postpone their wedding, some decided to press ahead in spite of the limitations.  One such couple was Mischa and Nathan, who got married on a cold, slightly wet day in December.

Theirs was always planned to be a smaller wedding – a civil ceremony at The Henley Room in Stratford-upon-Avon, followed by a meal for family and friends.  But the turmoil of changes during the latter part of the summer caused a rethink of their plans.  And then Warwickshire ended up in Tier 3, so their ideas for anything beyond the ceremony had to be put on hold.

Micro Wedding – A View From The Street!

The term ‘micro wedding’ has been around for some time now but has become more well-known since Covid became a thing.  Mischa and Nathan’s really was a ‘micro’ wedding – just the couple and two witnesses with a small handful of relatives along to watch.  However, because The Henley Room is quite small, everyone except for the registrars, the couple and their witnesses had to remain outside – including Rob!  Thankfully The Henley Room sits on one of Stratford-upon-Avon’s main streets and has windows which provide at least a decent view of the proceedings.

A Photo Walk Around Stratford

Part of the appeal of using The Henley Room for a wedding is the local surroundings.  Stratford-upon-Avon has some fabulous photo opportunities and everything is within easy walking distance.  There’s also plenty of doorways and overhangs to use – handy for a day like this when the weather never clears.  We’ve done several weddings in Stratford town centre and it’s always a great location to go for a walk with the couple for photos of the two of them together.

A really big thank you to Mischa and Nathan.  Enjoy the pictures…
