Is planning a wedding in 2021 actually allowed?

Updated: Dec 21, 2020

Latest Covid regulations shake up the wedding industry!

"Thanks" to Corona, large weddings and other events are impossible to think of. In some cultures all relatives are typically flown in from all possible countries in the world to celebrate love. As a wedding photographer and videographer, I have been able to accompany such enormous weddings. They are colorful and eventful celebrations. No matter what culture background the couple had, I always had a great time and loved big weddings.

In the near future, however, it is no longer possible to celebrate a wedding with so many guests.

Small-group weddings can be very intimate and special. The feeling that everyone who is with you is a very familiar face, gives you peace and quiet and the opportunity to focus on you and the love that brought you to this day.

You feel the day and perceive it in a completely different way.

The festival of love gets a whole new meaning again.

Perhaps we can see Corona as a problem for wedding celebrants and service providers.

but we have heard it so often: everything has a reason. From my own experience, I know that in my life there were often situations that at first seemed like a small catastrophe, but in when I think back they were the best that could happen to me.

It is therefore all the more important to ensure that a professional and stylish report about the wedding ceremony and the day is created in a small and personal circle. Whether photos, videos or both - in retrospect, your friends and relatives get the feeling that they were there. And you get a wonderful memory - for eternity.

A unique wedding film to share instead of many guests or a wonderful photo story that summarizes the best moments in the best possible way is something you'll have for lifetime to relive that day.

What does Corona mean for my already planned wedding?

Have you already planned your wedding in Mallorca, Germany or elsewhere, reserved everything, made deposits and are unsure whether the date will even take place?

You worry about getting your money back.

The uncertainty gnaws at you and your partner even more.

First of all: "Everything will be fine!"

Let me assure you that everything will indeed be fine. Either way.

How to cancel my wedding?

If you are considering cancelling your wedding I want to help you staying calm and optimistic.

You have probably already paid a deposit to your wedding photographer, caterer, DJ and Co.

You have already invested a good amount of your budget in down payments.

Of course it is the case that wedding service providers have been hit pretty hard by the Corona crisis. Nevertheless, behind every service provider there is also someone who understands your situation.

We stepped into this business for a reason and want you to have a beautiful experience. That's why we chose this industry. People always come first and most of us put our hearts into this.

Therefore, it is important to find a good and satisfactory solution for you. So when you get in contact with us, you don't need to worry in advance. Nevertheless, we ask you to show understanding of the situation of the service provider. Show mercy and try to find a good solution for both parties.

I ask my couples to find a new date quickly. 2021/22 will be interesting years and unfortunately we cannot afford to block uncertain dates for too long which means possibly having to cancel other customers.

I promised my couples that a refund is possible if the the desired date is no longer available.

This is how most wedding service providers handle this situation.

Nevertheless, we hope that refunds will remain the exception. Down payments partially flow in advance into the business-related costs of the service provider such as insurance, equipment, software, marketing and much more.

If you have any questions about the current situation, please leave a comment below this article or send me an email.

I have been working as a wedding videographer and photographer since 2015 and photograph or film weddings all over the world. Based in Mallorca and Amsterdam, I mainly offer my services in the Balearic Islands and Germany and the Netherlands.

I look forward to hear from you!

Your Svenja
