The lesson that I choose to take forward from 2020 is: love wins. We've had some really low lows, sure, but I've also had the honour of witnessing a few incredible intimate weddings - some as a safely socially-distant photographer; others as a guest via video chat.
It's been an emotional rollercoaster. The British government has let the wedding industry down with its lack of coherent guidance and last-minute policy changes. This has caused a lot of anxiety for engaged couples as well as the 400,000 people (including myself) that supply the services and goods for your wedding. Annabel from Love My Dress wrote this piece - What About Weddings? - which outlines the issues and ways to take action to show your support.
The joy of my couples who have finally been able to tie the knot is what's pulling me through. I know we, as a country, are in for a bumpy ride well into next year... so for now, I'm repeating the mantra: love wins, love wins, love wins.
