True love overcomes all obstacles. This post should probably come with a warning. It might bring tears to your eyes. We do hope that it will make you smile instead. This story shows us how simple weddings can be: “Mr” & “Mrs” and a proclamation of love to each other.
So what is the recipe to a lockdown wedding? Two hearts in love, a few simple decorations for the living room and the garden, two smiles and vows to exchange.
And yes, of course, if you exchange vows in your backyard, you will need to have a ‘legal wedding’ later but as weddings are timeless occasions, who cares?
We would like to offer our congratulations Annemarie Davies and Sajjad Zalaki, UK-based couple who went ahead with their ceremony during the lockdown. Annemarie said: “Not the day we expected but inspired by others, we decided to have our own little ceremony and exchange vows and rings right here from lockdown. It may not be ‘legal’ yet but we’re married in front of God and in our hearts”.
We all wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
Congratulations Annemarie and Sajjad! They look lovely and festive, and couldn’t have chosen a brighter day.
That is so awesome! I love this. Just them, surrounded by their creativity and love! Massive congratulations to them and I wish them a long, happy life together.
This is the sweetest thing ever. Congratulations. Life is too short. We all deserve to be happy.
I’m so happy that this beautiful couple were able to say ‘I do’ even though we’re in lockdown. The photos are beautiful and I love the bright bouquet.
Wow, I am glad you are were able to do this. It breaks my heart that there are so many weddings being canceled. I am sure that many are adapting and overcoming.
Great way to make the best out of an otherwise frustrating situation, isn’t it? Congratulations to the happy couple! This whole situation has put a damper on many people’s plans – weddings, birthdays, graduations, proms, etc. All we can do is roll with it and find the reasons to be happy each and every day.
