Full of excitement to plan your big day but stuck in Lockdown? Have fun with our 10 wedding ideas to do in lockdown.

You may not be able to go cake tasting or dress shopping but planning your wedding can still be fun and creative from the comfort of your own home. With the lack of entertainment, shopping and socialising on our calendars we should all have a little more time so make it productive and enjoy our 10 wedding ideas to do in Lockdown.

  1. Let’s start with peoples favourite pastime at the moment! Drinking..  You could bulk buy in some mini drinks bottles and get to making your own flavoured gin favours (say that after drinking a few). We’ve found a fab recipe – https://www.craftginclub.co.uk/ginnedmagazine/how-to-make-homemade-flavoured-gin-fruit-infusions

2. As photographers we LOVE a first dance – even more a choreographed one! Use your time at home to brush up on your dancing skills together. There is a number of places offering online dance lessons.

3. Time to reflect.. how about personalising your vows to really fit you and your relationship? Again google can be your friend here by gaining inspiration.

4. Make those once a day walks count and collect leaves to make your own confetti or turn into a green fingered gardener and plant lavender or roses ready to pick and dry for flower petal confetti.
