Wedding Trends...what to expect in 2021



2020 has certainly been tough on the events and wedding industry and I feel the effects of this pandemic may still have a huge effect on the type of weddings we see in 2021.


These are my personal opinions on what to expect for wedding trends in 2021.




Small and Intimate


If 2020 has taught us anything it's that bigger does not have to mean better when it comes to your wedding day.


Couples have really embraced the small intimate weddings with many finding that they actually preferred this smaller affair and actually quite thankful that Covid gave them an excuse to have what is ultimately a cheaper, more personal wedding day experience.

A Weekend Away


With destination weddings declining due to the restrictions on travel, UK destination weddings have seen a steady increase in popularity with couples choosing to escape to the countryside/seaside/or even their favourite city to elope.


A weekend away to get married is the ultimate romantic gesture. Whether you decide to elope or invite a few close friends and family it's the perfect chance to relax, unwind and celebrate your love for one another away from the distractions of home.

Cottage Core


I'll be the first to admit I've been involved in a couple of weddings/shoots embracing this theme without even realising it was a thing...but apparently cottage core is the next big trend.


Think Wuthering Heights, rolling english countryside, freshly picked flowers and a romantic, nostalgic vibe.


If you think cottage core might be your think check out this fabulous feature I was honoured to be a part of over on Green Wedding Shoes
