Alex and Simon’s Civil Partnership at Eltham PalaceBy
I’m guessing some folks may be wondering where I’ve been. Could it be a slow June or has Rob just forgotten to post on the blog. Neither in fact. It all started with the Jubilee and half term and a family trip to Center Parcs and 4 weddings in 8 days. So I’ve been neither slow nor forgetful…just flat out, trying to stay above water.
So lets start with Simon and Alex. Civil Partnerships have always been a favourite of mine. So far, I’ve done 4 with an even split down the gender profile. There seems to be something a bit magical about them. Maybe its the fact that everyone there really wants to be there. There just a vibe that I get and this was no exception. I knew from the moment I met S&A that things were going be fantastic. The planning, the vision…all of it pointed to something exceptional. I wasn’t wrong. Wow. What a day. I was so pleased to be there. Every minute of it. From the 9 Bridemaids all in a rainbow, to the choreographed entrance (how could they not with Alex being a former cruise ship dancer), the elaborately lit main hall and the video messages.
There will be a few more on my Facebook Business page. In fact, there’s been some there for a few weeks now. But I’ve added to it as well the ones below. So have a gander at the images below and then at the end follow the link to Facebook for more.
(BTW, I was without Darren for this wedding, but I did have the image making talents of Yorkshire Wedding Photographer, James Stewart. Now…I think that all of the images below are mine. I know for sure that everything up to the speeches are. Once we get there its all a blur with both of us moving around often shooting similar people at different times. There, I lose it. So he may well get some credit as well).
Don’t adjust your sets…I spent the first hour shooting women!
Sweet sights in the rear view :)
Girls of all ages
2 horseman of the apocalypse and a country and western singer (my own take on old Jonny Carson joke)
Proving Alex really IS ‘down with the kids’
Rehearsal…the time now is 2:35pm and the ceremony should have started at 2:30…
Talk to the hand
SHE’s BEHIND YOU!
Alternate lane traffic in the round room
Gauntlet of colour
Your Song…the Moulin Rouge version! Oh yes
Joleen, Joleen, Joleen, Joooleeen
What happens in the hats, stays in the hats
At least his name wasn’t Matthew
Contributing to easiest the best original one liner in speech history!
Its raining….really, I hadn’t noticed
Now all I want is chocolate
Wow…what a venue!
