SO…I spent all of yesterday thinking I was in Hertfordshire…in fact, I was in South Cambridgeshire. Like South Central LA without the guns.
Yesterday had the potential to be the biggest nightmare of my career. “Harsh” I hear you say. Well, it had nothing to do with the lovely couple, family, friends or venue. It all had to do with the blinking M25. A few weeks ago my good friend, Jim Davidson — the photographer, not the crude stand up comedian — asked if he could come along on a wedding. I offered some choices and he picked yesterday. Remember this…its called foreshadowing. So, 1 hour and 15 minutes earlier than required I set off on my journey to Sandy to photograph the bridal prep. Then I hit the western stretch of the M25. Junctions 16 to 19 specifically. Cue nightmare. Watching as the time slipped away my pulse began to race. I’ve never been late for a wedding and I wasn’t planning on starting today. Sadly its not an area I know well and SatNav’s solution to it was to exit and then rejoin the motorway. Duh! I was due to start at 1:30…my ETA was slipping….LOADS. 13:00, 13:02, 13:04, 13:10 etc etc. By 13:25 and no end in sight for the long queues of traffic it was time to invoke plan B. Jim, luckily already at the venue, hit the road to be with the girls. Jim LITERALLY saved the day. So what started out with a little ‘try something different” for him turned into a normal few hours and a whole lot of saving my bacon. Things will always happen…I would have thought that the extra time was more than enough for a Wednesday afternoon. Luckily there was a great photographer and friend there to lend a hand.
