When Krysia and Darren first told me they were getting hitched in the Seychelles for a few seconds at least I went "woohoo"! That was until they said they didn't have the budget to fly me out, and could I come and photograph their blessing in Ipswich instead. The words "oh bugger!" may have been said. So this is how I came to shoot my first destination wedding in Ipswich.
Being 4 hours each way from home it meant arriving the day before, and travelling home the day after. So for two nights I was "living the dream" in a Premier Inn. There might be a touch of sarcasm in that last sentence. I decided to pack lightly and jump on the train, the 170 mile drive on a bank holiday Friday just wasn't doing it for me.
I was able to meet most of the family over a relaxed pint of Hobgoblin at the pub on Friday evening. Being a part of the whole weekend really made a difference.
The blessing took place at the beautiful Wherstead Park in Ipswich. Great venue, really loved shooting there.
Congratulations to Krysia & Darren. It was a pleasure to be a park of your big day.
Update: I may have a slight obsession with cake. I am happy to report that the cake tasted every bit as good as it looked!
