A week and a bit late on this one. Wales was wonderful, if not a little wet. We did have sunshine everyday…well, everyday after 2:00pm. Strange climate. But ultimately we had a great time as a family. I won’t jibber for long or I’ll give it all away. Back in a mo!
Some might think I blew the focus here…but in fact this is what I wanted (I have others). The river was so much a part of Helen’s life that it seemed worth it to work it in.
Itsy bitsy teeny weeny purple polka dot … ironing board?
Awww…bless, the bride plays with THE cutest baby ever. Hey…wait a minute…that’s MY BABY!
Pleased I’d say
I tried so hard to work both in the photo…the angle wasn’t right but its enough
A dad, a speech, a river (or is that an estuary)
Some bright spark might ask “why take a shot of the bridesmaids getting gifts as a reflection in clock face”….well, as it was a staged experience set up by the video chap and I really didn’t want to appear as a guest star so I looked for other ways to document. So…there you go.
Ring a round of roses but not a tissue in sight
Not entirely sure the legs suit him TBH
The firestorm of final touches whilst I take refuge…in the loo
Unlike Obama, Ben resisted the temptation!
Luckily the window was up as to not disturb the hair
With the mild disruption due to a rather subdued rendition of ‘Shine Jesus Shine’ I was able to sneak around the corner…
Get used to that look on Ben’s face…in literature we call that foreshadowing
A little HDR and a river/estuary (this is here mostly for Helen)
Probably the best formal I’ve ever taken!
Sadly this is what I will be forced to give them
What a week of rain will do
Hiring a table hypnotist seemed such a good idea at the time
Oh yes…the speeches timing raffle pot. Who knew both the Bride and the Chief Bridemaid would get their oar in as well!
A moments peace…this is Laura and Leigh…and they ARE the reason I found myself in west Wales. I shot their wedding in 2007.
One of my favourite cake cutting shots
Damn Ben…not AGAIN!
Suddenly I’m reminded that women often marry men that remind them of their father. Proof there is SOME truth in old wive’s tales
With a little practice I reckon Helen could do it too!
The look…its contagious
Fading light and lots of champagne…its time for the Keogh family thumbs up photo
Yes…your eyes do not deceive. That is a lovely young lady doing a one handed press up in the middle of the dance floor. Beats the heck out of me?
From one armed press ups to two handed boogie
Didn’t think I would get to do this one…still have to wait until Monday for the full blog. I narrowed it down to 4. Its sooo hard to do ‘Just One‘ but in the end I had to remember what the point is…to show something different, quirky or awe inspiring…today, quirky wins. So here is ‘Just One‘.
