Robert & Claire Adam


Our dream wedding was planned for the 2nd of May 2020. Our hearts were broken when lockdown was announced. We had been dating for 5 years and had waited so long for this day but we were adamant to get married as soon as we could, even though it would be an unusual and different wedding. We had to reevaluate our priorities and in the end we decided that we just wanted to be together. We had 5 weeks to plan this virtual wedding and just 16 days before the wedding, I (the bride), tested positive with covid. We conquered covid with no one else affected!
In the end, we had a magical day! Over 200 people attended our wedding via zoom. We had only 10 people attending our wedding physically and these people were our family members. We asked some of our family and friends to prepare speeches and prayers on video which we could all watch at the ceremony. And my brother made an incredible video of our friends and family singing “The Blessing” over us. After the ceremony, we had a drive-by, where coffee and cupcakes were handed out as people drove past! This was special because we could connect with our friends and family in person but without any COVID risk.
We then went for a photoshoot at sunset which was beautiful and had an intimate dinner with our 10 family members. Despite having to cut much of the usual wedding traditions out, what really mattered, remained.
We rose above it all and had the best day ever!
