Mauritius Wedding - Day 1

Date: Monday, November 22, 2010

Two full days of airports, airplane seats which are way too close to each other, hotel transfers with drivers from hell (did not see much of the countryside as my eyes were closed most of the time), sunburn (forgot basics such as caps, sunblock, etc)and a luggage slingbag barely counter-balanced by a camera gear bag which was twice the weight ...and then the process repeats itself on the way back a few days later...such is the lot of the destination wedding photographer....I wouldn't change it for the world! The next two days were filled with excitement and the opportunity to get some great images - the entire group spent the day before the wedding ceremony out on a chartered Catamaran to the nearby Gabriel island. The hour or so sail to the island was filled with lots of laughter, lots and lots of seawater,(real mission keeping gear dry!)good food and a skipper who sat behind the wheel bobbing his head in time to the music which blared through the boats speakers...generally a good time was being had by all..! The island itself was not too big but we were able to find a secluded part of the beach to photograph a 'couples session' with a difference. On our return to the mainland, we continued with the shoot, spending some time in Grande Bay, a nearby sugar plantation and finally, on the beach at the hotel. All in all, I had an awesome time with a really awesome group of people . To Jade and Bradley, my sincerest thanks for being such an amazing couple to photograph - nothing was too much trouble - I felt, at first, a bit like the Englishman in New York, being the only outsider amongst your group of family and friends, but you immediately made me feel like I was part of the family! A few images of the day ( I was tempted to post a few more than the usual 20-25 images but I will stick to the format).....The next post will be the wedding day itself (Jade & Bradley's Mauritius Wedding - DAY 2)...enjoy.
