Yes I did it! I bought the Canon G10… and nervously waited for it to arrive in time for my little trip out to south spain.. Well here are some of the “snaps” I took. It is a very capable camera, hopefully I can do it justice … just need a few more trips abroad, if anybody wants to send me somewhere I promise to take some photos 😉
So what happens if you get married in your home country and a load of your friends and work colleagues that live here in the UK want to celebrate… well have another wedding party! It’s really that simple, who needs an excuse for a party?!
Yu and Yao are two very successful people living here in the UK, one managing an R+D company in London and the other on a research fellowship here in Birmingham (yes they commute a lot, I’d say that travel comes natural!) and they recently celebrated their marriage in China and England, which is where I step into the story!
The wedding celebration took place at The Moat House at Acton Trussell where the staff were very helpful and friendly and the food spot on… also the weather held out well and the small party of friends and work colleagues was just ideal, a really fun bunch to spend time with 🙂
It was really cool meeting them before the big day and it’s going to be even cooler seeing their faces when they check out the previews! If only they’d found me before the wedding in China.. how awesome would that have been?!
Here are a few of my favourites from the day:
Had the pleasure of second shooting with Rachel Walkden at the weekend and thought I’d share some of my personal highlights from that wedding. Lovely couple, beautiful locations (best of all being Grim’s Dyke where Gilbert of Gilbert and Sullivan lived, very funny and embarassing best man’s speech … oh and not to mention the string quartet!!!
Anyway.. here goes…
Don’t know if you all remember this marvel of photographic technology… The Olympus Trip 35mm… well a dear old friend lent me one recently to give it a bit of a service and see if it was still useable. So I carried it with me on a few trips … well, had a chance to see what resulted and thought I’d show you some…
REMEMBER: The following images were shot with an old Trip 35mm, which has fixed focus points and very few adjustable settings.. that and the film I used was rather old (my old favourite Fuji Neopan which I used to uprate)…
