And just like that Fairies… 2021 is coming to an end! Covid-19 yet again put many of our Couple’s’ Wedding plans on hold worldwide, but love conquered all, and (finally) we had some WEDDINGS! When there is a will, there is a way and a Wedding! Couples and Suppliers had to overcome the hardships of restrictions, travel, cancellations, and postponements, to create some of the most memorable, beautiful, intimate and emotional celebrations we have ever seen.
Intimate micro-Weddings and elopements rose in great popularity this year, and although some celebrations were smaller, the love between newlyweds grew even greater and stronger. 2021 also brought forth some of the most anticipated Celebrity Weddings including Ariana Grande, Paris Hilton and Gwen Stefani.
