a covid-19 ceremony

2020 was an extremely hard year for many people and Hannah and Ryan's story is a heartwarming example of how flexibility, perseverance, and togetherness beat all the odds. Having originally intended to get married abroad, the couple's plans suffered again when England entered Lockdown 2. Amid the turmoil of the early Winter pandemic their third booking date began to look increasingly uncertain. However, at short notice in December the couple finally managed to tie the knot in the few days between the end of the lockdown and the start of Kent's higher tier social restrictions. Luckily, the weather remained dry for the few guests allowed to attend and Hannah and Ryan were able to take advantage of the glorious venue. Hannah looked beautiful in her elegant Rosa Clara of London dress and braved the cold English climate to show it off to the full. It may not have been the sunny day they had originally planned in South Africa, but it was full of love, emotion and happiness.

The Archbishops Palace was formally the fourteenth century residence of the Archbishops of Canterbury. The building still retains many of its original historic features and is situated on the banks of the River Medway in the centre of the County Town. It is a truly beautiful setting for a wedding combining the charm of an opulent interior with a majesty of formal and informal grounds.

"Trina was highly available for questions and suggestions and went above and beyond what we expected of her. Our initial wedding was supposed to be abroad but was cancelled due to the virus. We then decided to book the ceremony in the UK and it was at this point we contacted Trina who was very accommodating. After a second cancellation with Trina on board, our ceremony went ahead, third time lucky, and having Trina capture our special day was fantastic. The photos are perfect and we could not be happier with them. We would highly recommend Trina to anyone."
