Where would your idea wedding destination be? Victoria Falls on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia has to be up there on my list, so I was very lucky last month to get a chance to shoot the wedding of my good friend Fiona and her now husband Andrew. Thanks guys it was amazing.
It was an brilliant few days with fantastic people and a lot of firsts. I’ve never been to a wedding where the bride took less than an hour to get ready. Where guests insisted that the bride and groom have their first dance halfway through desert so that everyone else could get up and dance…they love to party. Or where when it became evident that there was no knife to cut the cake someone kindly provided a swiss army knife. Just so much laughing!
Lots of challenges on the photography front too as I haven’t had to deal with that much sunshine since Fiji a few years ago. Not a common issue in Scotland. The most common lighting challenges usually being tungsten or fluorescent or just the complete lack of light.
If you would like to see the entire gallery check it out here. Thanks to Fiona and Andrew for letting me share their day with you all.
Many hands make light work.
Signed and finger printed it must be official.
Time for bubbles at 10.30am in the morning…great idea!
Time for more bubbles and lunch in the sunshine.
A view of the falls…it’s a hard life.
Sundowners at on the terrace on Friday night.
Canapés at the waterhole.
Most relaxed bride ever.
