An Intimate lockdown micro-wedding in Elgin, Moray

Lockdown 2.0 saw total numbers of people (including us photographers!) reduced to just 6 people.

Despite this set back, I was able to be a part of some wonderful micro weddings and elopements. For some It was just myself, the couple and the vicar/registrar, ad other had their family present, and just had photos afterwards, totally tailored to how they wanted!

For the wedding featured in the photos, I actually waited outside for the ceremony until the registrar was no longer present, and our little wedding party was able to reform as 6 people.

We went onwards for the (relaxed!) portraits at Gordon Castle Walled Garden, which the bride had hired for our location after the ceremony.

Some slow dancing ensued in the barren and beautiful gardens in February. It was warm and crisp and bright.

As restrictions have lifted and we are now allowed 50 people at weddings it is definitely a different sight to behold!

Small and intimate weddings hold a place in my heart, and I hope to photograph many more, even with the newly-allowed numbers, s even those just having a small ceremony will regret not having those images to look bac on in years to come!
