The Isle of Wight Festival returned in September 2021 following a one year break. With 2020 being the year of strange global pandemics, the festival unsurprisingly cancelled and many of us wistfully looked forward to a time when things may start to resemble ‘normality’ again.
Ventnor Fringe Festival 2021 made a triumphant return following 2020’s lockdown-infused-hiatus. Entertaining all with a solid ensemble of theatre, spoken word, music, poetry and circus antics, the Fringe team lit up the town of Ventnor (our hometown) with gusto.
Keira and Sam were married in May 2021. They were unworried about the current Covid-19 restrictions as they had always planned a small, intimate wedding. The couple, as well as all of their family and friends, live in Worthing, but had chosen the Island for their wedding as it was where Sam had proposed.
Pam & Jon’s wedding took place under a the cloud of 2020’s Covid-19 restrictions. They had decided early on in the year that they wanted to go ahead with their nuptials regardless. Nevertheless the days preceding the wedding were on a knife edge, with the rules set to change again at any time. Fortunately, Pam & Jon’s wedding was able to go ahead with a maximum of 30 people in attendance.
John Wroath is a singer-songwriter from East Cowes, I have known him pretty much my entire life. I have had the pleasure of shooting John on several occasions over the years. These shoots have taken place at gigs as well as out and about for commercial promo pictures. This set of photos show-cases three of these shoots.
Joe and Amber held their wedding on the 14th March 2020, 9 days before the UK locked down due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. It was consequently (at least so far) my only wedding of 2020. Although family and guests were aware of the potential of lockdown (I remember a family member hoping they wouldn’t be locked down on the Isle of Wight) everyone at the wedding had a completely wonderful time.
