Getting married during Covid

Christina + Andreas

Like many couples in 2020, Christina and Andreas found themselves in an unfortunate situation. They could either cancel their wedding or adapt to the restrictions. Obviously, they chose the second option.

But let me tell you: I have never seen a more excited, fun and happy bride on her wedding day than Christina. Of course all of the brides are excited and happy on their big day but Christina was on another level. And that despite having to change all of their plans last minute. I was expecting her to be a little sad or disappointed but that wasn’t the case at all. They had to cancel their wedding reception venue and instead decided to host a garden party at her uncle’s house where she grew up. Accompanied by close family and friends.

Her uncle and cousins owned a catering company a few years back
so obviously, they were going to be in charge of the food. Christina got ready in her old room, whilst her aunt and cousins were in the kitchen, preparing the food. It was just like a big family gathering.

If you are planning to get married this year but are are not sure about the restrictions – aim for a garden wedding with your close family and friends. You can’t go wrong with that. And if you don’t have a house with a garden, maybe one of your relatives does? Or a friend who would be willing to lend it to you for the weekend? There’s so many possibilities and it’s not gonna feel less special just because it’s not in a specific wedding venue. On the contrary, it makes it even more unique and with less pressure involved.
