So there I am on our Easter holiday in Barbados and the day we are due back I hear this ludicrous sounding story about volcanic ash. Turns out the story was true of course and after being stranded for an additional week (I know, I know, it’s a rough life) we managed to get home eventually. In the meantime uppermost in my mind was the worry of missing my booked weddings – it would have been the first time in sixteen years.
One benefit of being a working professional is that I have a great network of fellow professional photographers that I am a part of. Thank goodness for the technology in today’s phones, even on a far flung Caribbean island I was able to access my calendar and contacts via Her Majesty’s interweb. My thumbs were a blur, texting like a teenager to rearrange things and I managed to get two great photographer friends lined up as replacements. Fortunately after a few uh, interesting travel adventures we managed to get home by Thursday just in time for the weekends weddings.
It was with huge sense of relief that I set off for Victoria and Richard’s beautiful wedding at St. Michael’s and Monkey Island in Bray in Berkshire. Fuelled by caffeine and adrenaline I really enjoyed the St. George’s day wedding. The weather was great, V and R were a joy to work with, very relaxed about the whole thing. The day, like all weddings, went far too quickly. Here are a few favourite images. The rest will be uploaded as soon as Richard and Victoria have seen them.
