I don’t see anything wrong with not having a walk down the aisle, but the couple commonly does not greet guests until after the ceremony because time can get away from you with everyone wanting to see you and speak with you. So I would have people seated for the ceremony and then have both of you enter from the side, either together or from opposite sides. Then the two of you can greet guests afterwards.

With 20 guests, greeting everyone beforehand sounds really manageable! We’re having 25 guests and have considered doing something similar, but as of now I’m planning on walking down the aisle. Since your photographer suggested it, I’m sure she can guide you in terms of logistics. And I bet you’ll get some great pictures that way too!

It’s a lovely idea!  I really wish we could have done that at our wedding.  And with 20 people, you should have no problem starting on time – although you might worry anyone arriving close to the ceremony start time as they’ll probably think they’re late and you’ve already done your aisle walk!!!

That sounds awesome! I didn’t walk down an aisle either… granted for our actual ceremony portion we only had 4 in attendance so no need, our reception was about 20 people as well so I think that is very doable and a really nice idea/change of pace from the typical wedding.
