Does the idea of a smaller wedding excite you? Does it mean more intimacy, more comfort, and more love? Intimate weddings have been gaining popularity for the last few years but have risen to new heights during this pandemic. Intimate weddings are a great idea as they give you a breathing space on the most important day of your life. They give you time to let that feeling of ‘just-married’ sink in and a chance to celebrate your love story with the people you love the most. They are budget-friendly and the money that’s saved can be utilized in adding more personal details and the ‘dream quotient’ in your dream wedding. It could be the lighting, as in an intimate setting you could totally amp up the lighting to give it a romantic fairytale feel. It not only adds to the romantic element, but it is also great for your oh-so-romantic wedding photography! See, it’s a win-win! And just like that, two souls will merge into one amidst romantic settings, surrounded by the warmth of people who matter the most!
