Covid-19 update July 2020

Some wedding businesses are planning to reopen their doors to the public from 15th June. BSC are continuing to practice social distancing to protect our clients and of course friends and family. As such we’ve decided not to reopen the office to visitors just yet, we’re going to continue to offer phone meetings in the meantime 🙂

We’re still taking bookings for 2020 (spaces now very limited), 2021 and 2022 and will be making additional booking dates available for 2021 due to extra demand for postponed 2020 weddings.

We’re now offering micro wedding packages at a really affordable rate for those couples who decide they want an intimate wedding. See our packages for more info.

We’ll be monitoring government advice and at present we’re expecting the office to remain closed to visitors until August 2020 at the earliest.

Weddings/events in 2020…

We will continue to offer free rescheduling of weddings under these exceptional circumstances. If we’re not available on your new date we will do our utmost to help you find a replacement photographer. So far we’ve managed to reschedule all of our weddings 🙂

Safety at events in 2020 (updated July 2020 following new guidelines)

We are hoping events will be going ahead from August 2020 onwards, although realistically we do expect some limitations to be imposed. If you are uncertain about your event going ahead please contact your venue for the most up to date information.

For the foreseeable future, our photographers will wear masks (unless otherwise requested masks are now mandatory for our staff until further notice) at events and maintaining social distancing during photo shoots and events. We’ll speak to all of our couples prior to their booking to ensure you are comfortable.

We will not be using multiple camera operators where possible to ensure minimal risk.

We’re expecting limitations for events and social gatherings to continue for a while yet, perhaps even into 2021. If you have any concerns or questions please drop us an email to

Please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates. We are continuing to follow government guidelines but these may be subject to change.

Stay safe x

New Micro wedding packages added for 2020/21

In these uncertain times, we’re seeing an increase in couples downsizing their plans. The rise of the micro wedding is being predicted for the next year or two and we’d love to help out those couples who’ve decided to go the more intimate wedding route 🙂

What is a micro wedding?

A ‘Micro Wedding’ as they are being called is when couples have a very small selection of guests (20 or under) which are typically made up from family and very close friends.

A micro wedding is a wedding with less than 20 guests. Being smaller in size, it’s usually cheaper, more relaxed and shorter in length than a traditional wedding day.

As such, the demand for a traditional style documentary wedding photographer has changed a little bit. Of course, it’s less work and much less editing if we have to photo 20 guests rather than 200 so it seems like a great idea to offer these micro weddings a fairer price.

Video upgrades

Video upgrades can be added. These videos are fab for sharing with friends and family that can’t make it to your big day.
