Micro Weddings, Planning & Photography
As a Norfolk wedding photographer I feel it’s fair to say that micro weddings have taken on a beauty of their own!
They have become a more viable option for couples who still want to celebrate their marriage with close family and friends. Although these events may be smaller they certainly don’t need to be lacking when it comes to celebrating your love for each other. A lot of couples realise that the simplicity of a micro wedding is more to their liking and gives them a much more relaxed and informal day with more time to spend with their closest family and friends.
Norwich and the surrounding areas in Norfolk hold a number of venues that are perfect for small celebrations. Several venues I can recommend are Chaucer barn near Holt, Cley Windmill is perfect for an intimate wedding of less than 20 guests, or the Flint room in Norwich itself is definitely worth a look.
What is a micro wedding?
A micro wedding is a wedding with 30 guests or less, being smaller in size and more informal, usually focusing on your relationship with a small celebration and your ceremony. From a photography perspective I recommend allowing 3-4 hours coverage to capture all those important moments.
How much do micro weddings cost?
This all comes down to your budget ultimately but most wedding photographers, myself included do offer micro wedding coverage, priced at £150 per hour, minimum of two hours coverage providing you both with wedding photography flexibility to suit your needs.
How do you plan a micro wedding?
It’s important that you focus on the wedding services you both find important.. although small they are amazing celebrations. If you’ve always wanted that dream dress maybe this makes your list now? Or why not buy the grooms suit instead of hiring one? Micro weddings offer the flexibility to plan the day where you want and how you want. I highly recommend hiring a Norfolk wedding celebrant to cover your ceremony, they can offer a personalised and very heartfelt service. However you will still need to marry at Norfolk registrar office prior ,or after to the event to make things official.
