Covid-19 Weddings – A step to normality

Having been in lockdown for over 100 days the desire to go back to ‘normal’ is something we are all feeling, both personally and across every industry sector. At this point in the year we are usually delivering back to back events, ranging from festivals to weddings, so it’s been a real adjustment.

Thankfully both Libby and Lydia have worked together for over 5 years, and working remotely is the norm for us. We’ve been excited to see the industry transform, and being able to deliver some fantastic virtual events has been fantastic.

Postponed Wedding Date Package

Many couples have unfortunately had to face the reality of postponing or cancelling their wedding due to the pandemic situation. We’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of couples to help support them with the large task of renegotiating contracts and re-arranging their wedding.  You can find out more about the free support we’ve offered in this area here.

Working with our couples who have had their hopes for their big day dashed, has inspired us to curate our unique ‘Postponed Wedding Date Package,’ to help couples still mark what should have been their special day.

Perhaps you are one half of a couple who has been impacted, or maybe your friend or family member has had to postpone their big day and you’d like to let them know you’re thinking of them on their special day.

We have a range of packages available to suit all budgets, and include a surprise bouquet styled with the couples wedding flower choices. Our packages also feature a range of elegant food and drink options from champagne truffles to premium cocktails. All packages come beautifully presented and delivered direct to the couples’ door.

FREE WEDDING PLANNER SUPPORT

Our hearts are going out to all of the couples who are having to cancel or postpone their wedding days because of the current situation. We really understand how stressful and disappointing this must be for you all, and we want to help.

We know that such a decision will be generating a huge amount of additional pressure as you have to wade through cancellation policies, insurance documents terms and conditions, and then try and coordinate all your suppliers for an alternative date.

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed with all this, and could do with some support from an industry professional, we are more than happy to help. We will be offering FREE advice and guidance on how best to manage this unprecedented situation.

Or if you’d like to go one step further and just hand all the admin over to us to take care of, then we will be offering a COVID-19 Wedding Management package. This will be offered to any couples in the position of having to cancel or postpone their wedding due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Such a package will be charged at cost, we aren’t looking to make a profit from this unfortunate situation, we just want to provide support to couples navigating this difficult time.

The above offer can be applied to private events too.

Ping us a message or pop us a comment below if you’d like to chat.

Stay safe everyone.
