Letter reading ceremony – how Jodie & Matt made the most of their postponed wedding day!

This sweet couple should have been getting married in July. In the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic, they turned what could have been a sad day into something so positive and beautiful!

Jodie & Matt asked us about organising a couple shoot on their original wedding date, and we chatted through various ideas to make the experience extra meaningful and mark the significance of the occasion. They loved the idea of writing letters to one another, so that afternoon we met them in a beautiful pine forest, and they read their letters!

Needless to say the whole experience was emotional, uplifting, and so special. We felt very lucky to have a front seat for something so heartfelt and personal! Jodie & Matt’s letters were so different, but like these two, complimented eachother perfectly.

We know lots of our lovely couples have had to postpone their weddings, and have a long wait ahead of them until they can say “I do”. Just remember – love is not cancelled! These guys certainly inspired us to always find the silver linings in a situation – their positive outlook was touching!
