Weddings in a pandemic
So 2020 wasn’t a good year by any means.
We all have to be thankful for our health as i know a lot of people lost loved ones. At Barringtons wedding cars lost one of our drivers who was a legend in both the wedding industry and the funeral business. The theme for 2020 for brides and grooms was trying to find a date.They needed to tie in not just there wedding venue or Church but all the suppliers. This must have been a nightmare for our couples and we did everything we could to help.
So things changed in a Covid 19 world and that meant putting screens up in the wedding cars. This takes away some of the personal part of the day but we had no choice if we wanted to help our couples. So wedding transport etiquette changed for the worse but we will be back to normal as soon as we can.
Covid 19 Weddings in Liverpool
Moving onto one of less than a dozen weddings i did since the March lockdown, and one of the rare weddings that actually happened on the date they booked. The date for the couple was in October, and the weather couldn’t have been any better. We started using the wedding cars for the groom and best man plus his ushers.They came from less than a mile away from the church which was St Joseph’s church Blundellsands on Warren Road. Father Martin Cadell was the roman catholic priest that took the service in his PPE . The church is known as the little church which i’m not sure why as its not little at all.
After taking the grooms party to the church the traditional wedding cars. Off we went around the get Hannah (the bride) and her dad plus the bridesmaids and mother of the bride. In the strange world we have lived in for most of 2020, this was almost the whole of the amount of people allowed at a wedding. A little wait in the wedding cars outside the house followed by a short journey to the church. The photo you can see at the top of the post taken by Kevin Brown Photography who was fantastic as always.
Reception at the Titanic Hotel
After a shorter wedding service than normal, due to not being able to have any hymns or bells rung at the church. The happy couple came outside followed by there masked guests. The sun was shining down on the church so it was a nice time for all involved. Everyone having a socially distanced chat and to continue with the bridal party wedding photographs. We then loaded up our wedding transport with the family and bride and groom. Then we took them for a booked meal at the Titanic Hotel Liverpool . Which if you don’t know is located on stanley dock and has 153 rooms in this 4 star hotel. It is set within a UNESCO World Heritage site.
