The Perfect Micro Wedding
The Perfect Micro Wedding took place in Norwich, in July 2020 and it was an incredible day!
It wasn’t what Joanne and Philip had planned at all, but they took on the challenge with gusto! With 12 guests in attendance and many close family on Zoom, they held their wedding ceremony at The Bird Cage, in Norwich.
And WOW – what a result – it was a very special ceremony.
Joanne and Philip’s wedding journey had been full of challenges, courtesy of Covid-19. Their plans for a fantastic wedding day were scuppered by the uncertainty of not knowing if they could get married. They were told by email that their legal marriage had been cancelled only one week beforehand.
But, with everything against them, they were determined to have the most beautiful time! They woke up in a luxury B&B that was exclusively theirs and walked together to the venue, with their photographer.
Tucked away inside The Birdcage were their close family. Family who couldn’t be there physically, were there virtually on Zoom to share their happiness.
There was so much joy for Joanne and Philip that day! What an emotional journey and what a wonderful story to share during their micro wedding ceremony. We learned all about their first date, the proposal, the new house, their funny and irritating little habits, their love for each other and their life together. Throughout their ceremony we also heard about the encouragement and support they received from their families.
And we shared the love and a few tears for Joanne’s dear dad and their four-legged wuff, Eddie, both of whom are no longer with them.
Joanne and Philip’s guests laughed and cried. They listened and cheered, joined in, applauded and raised a toast to the happy couple. Their family on Zoom joined in as well. You can have a ceremony like this if you get in touch with us!
The staff at the Birdcage were fantastic. What a wonderful and unique venue it was. Absolutely perfect! Fish and chips were delivered to us after the ceremony from Grovesnor Fish Bar and such a tasty treat!
Joanne and Philip’s photographer, Alexandra Cameron, was amazing. She took them off for a stroll around Norwich for their fantastic photos, after which they got together with family again for an evening of fun and games.
Joanne and Philip had the legal registration of their marriage the following Monday. They are planning their big reception later this year. From being bitterly disappointed to being totally blown away by everything that happened for them, they still have so much to look forward to.
