Lockdown Wedding Photography – Jess + Simon


‘Oh Will, I don’t know where to start! I keep crying every time I look at them. They are absolutely beautiful. You have given us the memories of a lifetime and we can’t thank you enough. I didn’t realise how much we would treasure the photos of our family as well as all the photos of us. Oh, I’m crying again. Thank you so much, you are incredible at what you do and we feel so lucky that we were able to have you there.’

Lockdown Wedding Photography

Turning points are called turning points for a reason: they’re the moment when everything changes – for better or for worse – and we move in a new direction.⁠

When the regulations for weddings eased back in July, this was a turning point for Jess and Simon. They knew that they were going to get married, come hell or high water. So they made it happen as soon as they could.⁠

Little did I realise that it would be a turning point for me, too. For the first time in months I had a reason to shine my shoes and clean my lenses. Picking the cameras up and going to work for these two reminded me of why I do this job, and just how much I love it.⁠

I don’t know whether they knew it then or know it now, but that sunny Saturday back in July was a huge turning point for me and one I’ll be forever grateful for.⁠

Summer Sun, Golden Sunsets

A small, intimate wedding in a Streatley-On-Thames church followed a calm and quiet morning of getting ready.

Emerging from the gate outside, everything felt normal again. As if nothing had happened. As if we hadn’t missed a beat, and life was back to where it needed to be all along.

Close friends, close family, close bonds and heartfelt speeches were the order of the day.

As the sun set, we made our way up the hill to look out over the landscape. We looked at the view, felt the final soft rays of sunshine warm our faces and stopped to take that moment for what it was – beautiful, still and serene.

There’s no other feeling quite like it.
