RandFWeddings & LGBTQ

Inclusion is everything, People are people and love between two consenting adults should always be a cause for celebration.

Being LGBTQ friendly is a big thing in current media and a popular topic of discussion amongst Wedding professionals as to how we can ensure the community feels welcome in our businesses

The question recently came up on how the industry could make it easier for LGBTQ couples to approach our businesses; The pretty standard answer was to advertise with perhaps a logo that you are LGBTQ friendly. Our answer and one that hit a few chords was that we envisioned a time when it actually wasn’t even a question…. Which is why you generally wont find us making a big statement or applying labels.

When all is said and done however it was clear from conversations with colleagues, friends and clients that there are sadly still equality and acceptance issues and that couples do not always feel confident about approaching a supplier without some reassurance.

We hope that with progress we do get to the point where we no longer need labels or tags or to ask the question, but until we get there here’s us saying Yes, We are ALL inclusive and LGBTQ Friendly, We have had the honour of planning LGBT weddings in the past and look forward to celebrating many more in the future.

    Yesterday’s was a wedding I did because they specifically said that I stated on my site I was LGBTQ+ friendly and that they saw examples of those weddings on my site. It was the last thing they mentioned, they brought it up at our meeting and it was almost as if tbey were gently and humorously testing me to see if I was the right person! But to see that my expression of inclusion was a big factor in them choosing made me really happy as they wanted to book me but also really sad that actually, they felt uncomfortable being able to go to other photographers and ask. Truth be known is that other suppliers would also be absolutely fine with it but clearly they had reservations for their own reasons and wanted to be comfortable with those who expressly state their inclusion. It definitely made me feel sad and slightly angry about the world we live in right now. The wedding was a blinder by the way!

    Great peace
    They say love is blind. But some people are blind to love and can’t see even the end of there noses.
