Online ceremonies turn wedding postponements into a celebrations

In these strange and surreal times, public safety clearly comes first but postponing your wedding can be a bitter pill to swallow when you’ve been planning for that special day for so long.

Sue Walder, a London-based humanist wedding celebrant accredited by Humanists UK, says that there is a way to turn your wedding postponement into a celebration.

Online ceremonies turn wedding postponements into a celebrations: Image 1 "During the COVID-19 lockdown we've got used to using online technology like Zoom, Houseparty, and Google Meet. These apps have helped us to work from home, as well as to keep in touch with family and friends while social distancing rules are in place, " she says. "As a humanist wedding celebrant, I work with couples to conduct bespoke and meaningful ceremonies that truly reflect the values and style of each couple. The unusual circumstances we find ourselves in right now mean we all have to adapt to a new way of doing things. And weddings are no exception.

"We can't physically gather for a wedding so why not harness the power of online technology to create something special for couples and families that have had to delay their wedding day?

"Huge amounts of time, effort and emotion get invested in planning a wedding, and not just by the bride and groom. So it's really important to mark the original wedding day and fill it with as much love and happiness as we can.

"It's a reminder that all good things are worth the wait! And who doesn't want to see the joyful faces of happy loved ones raising a glass of fizz in a toast?"

If you're wondering what such a ceremony might include, Sue says that it's totally up to each couple. However, it could involve a short 'pre-wedding' ceremony with couples pledging their continuing love for each other. Guests can join in from their homes to promise to 'save the new date' for the future wedding celebration.

The aim is to create an individual and joyful celebration in a time when families are physically separated. "These worrying and difficult times have really reminded us of what is truly important in life – our personal connection with family and friends," says Sue. "Love and kindness keeps us all afloat in these uncharted waters. Why not let the love you have for each other and the love and support of your network wash over you in a memorable ceremony? Then you can start planning for your new wedding day."
