What is Micro Wedding Photography?

Micro wedding photography is for small and intimate wedding celebrations typically with less than 30 guests in attendance where couples tailor this to their requirements in favour of an all-day wedding which may be overkill for them.

My smallest wedding to date had 5 in attendance and it was amazing! There was so much character in a handful of people and it really signified the importance of the celebration.

7 Reasons why micro wedding photography could be for you.

Micro wedding photography is suitable for many couples and whilst there are no set criteria as to who books shorter wedding photography coverage, it may work for you if you are:

  • only looking for a few hours of wedding photography coverage rather than all day;
  • having a low-key wedding with fewer than 30 guests in attendance;
  • older and don’t want the fuss of all-day coverage;
  • tieing the knot at a local registry office;
  • eloping; A micro wedding photography package will focus closely on the couple with a collection of personalised photos.
  • on a budget but place importance on quality over quantity. A small wedding doesn’t mean it’s any less important and you will receive a collection of beautiful photos which will be smaller in quantity to reflect the hours of coverage; or
  • booking a wedding photographer as a last-minute decision.

What will a 2-hour wedding photography package cover?

Below is a guide to how 2 hours of photography works if you are having a civil ceremony in Nottingham.

  • Arrival at the venue 30 minutes prior to the ceremony to capture you and your guests.
  • 30-minute ceremony.
  • 1 hour of photos at the venue following your ceremony.   With a smaller number of guests, this is usually plenty of time for couple portraits, family photos and/or candid photography of wedding guests.

You can of course add additional hours to this should you wish to.    You tell me what you would like covering and I will work with you so your day is photographed just the way you would like it.

All-day coverage or shorter coverage – which is right for you?

The main advantage of all-day coverage (which usually starts with bridal preparations and finishes after the first dance) is that you receive a full story of your wedding day documented through photos and, often it can be the moments in between the ceremony and formal photos which produce the most candid photos.

However, since the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, when couples adapted their wedding plans to meet Government guidelines, there has been an increase in micro wedding photography offerings from venues and suppliers. Although I have been offering shorter wedding coverage for some time, I believe couples started to look at their wedding day a little differently by planning it to suit themselves rather than what was the traditional way.
