Please see update as of 21.03.2020
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be penning a blog post on a global pandemic for my wedding photography business.
However here we are and the world is changing by the minute.
At the time of writing this post (06.00 19.03.2020) there is no decree from the UK Government for businesses to close. And therefore the Business (Nikki Kirk Photography) will continue to operate until such time as we are told to close by our Government.
Please check the terms of your wedding insurance and look into making a claim against your insurance if your venue has closed or cancelled or postponed your wedding. Please speak to your insurance provider for full details.
If your insurance pays out for cancellations/postponements please consider claiming on your insurance, paying your wedding suppliers and re-booking as a new booking. The wedding industry is a hive of small, independent creative businesses and like all industries will be hit hard. We pay insurance for these very reasons. Every little will help.
The knock on effect on all businesses will be challenging to say the least and the more we can support, help and work with those business throughout this difficult time the more I know we will all feel that we have done our bit.
Here at NKP we will be taking all precautions necessary in order to fulfil and facilitate photography bookings and requests whilst protecting the Team.
We will continue to follow the guidance and advice from our Government as the situation develops and will provide updates as necessary via this website.
As always, we are here for you. Our clients, our suppliers, our cheerleaders. Thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to contact us during this time if you have any questions.
