With the coronavirus pandemic, many couples are being forced to postpone their big days. While it is disappointing, this couple decided to look on the bright side and have a little fun by posing for a ‘postponement ‘shoot.
Kim Henrickson and her partner David Woolston were set to marry in June 2020 but had to postpone their wedding to October amid the coronavirus. To announce their new date, they planned a tounge-in-cheek shoot filled with coronavirus-themed props like toilet paper and Corona beer. Their photographer was Brisbane-based Edwina Kate.
They made sure to go to an isolated part of a park, and had their photographer shoot with a long lens so that they did not break social distancing rules.
“We thought we’d take some photos and put them out there just to bring some smiles to people’s faces,” Henrickson tells 9Honey.
“It’s such a depressing decision to postpone our wedding, but we needed to make something positive out of it.”
After Kim shared the images to Facebook, she got overwhelming support from her family and friends.
“People kept telling us it was such a great idea and a nice way to turn a negative into a positive,” Herickson says, adding, “I didn’t realise how many other couples are going through what we’re going through at the moment.”
