Words of wisdom from Cheshire-based Andy Boyle Photography

Groom carries bride's bouquet taken by Andy Boyle Photography As for many for of you, the rug was well and truly pulled out from underneath the wedding plans of Andy and Karen Boyle’s couples. The pair who together form Andy Boyle Photography, have spent much of their time chatting with couples about rearranging their wedding.
 
We caught up with Karen to get her advice on how you adapt in the face of changing plans. She says, “With so many couples having to make new arrangements, it’s not always possible to keep everything exactly as you’d planned it. If you can allow yourself to be flexible, you can reduce stress and inconvenience. Remember, details and things are exactly that – what’s really important is that the two of you arrive as two and leave as one.

“If possible, have a weekday wedding close to your original date. Your venue will find it much easier to accommodate you and it might even save you a few bob! Registrars are going to be super-busy, so perhaps consider doing the legal bit a few days before your wedding, and have your ceremony performed by a celebrant on the day.

“As for your photographer and other suppliers, contact them as soon as possible with your proposed new dates. Hopefully they’ll be able to accommodate you, but if not, they’re bound to be able to recommend someone who can, and there may even be some virtual wedding fairs that can offer you inspiration.”

Despite having to down tools as far as weddings, the pair have been making the most of lockdown by capturing doorstep portraits, to raise funds for their local hospice. They’re also working hard to get their studio prepared and reopen for family and baby shoots. One of the first will be for a wonderful nurse, who won a free photoshoot. Over 150 people nominated the NHS heroes for this ‘Thank You’ draw.”
