We were right – it was a long hard day/night but I loved every minute of it. It’s now Monday night and I spent most of Sunday recovering (as well as watching the final of EURO 2008).

The party was awesome and the organisers had thought of everything, right down to the tiniest details. But this gave us a massive range of items and events the photographer had to include and more importantly get right – just like a wedding often there is only one opportunity and in these situations you have to make every shot count.

We got to the venue late morning and stayed right through till about 1am, therefore we had just about every situation and lighting to deal with that you would expect at a wedding (except we didn’t have a church or any rain!smiley) from blazing midday sun, indoor and outdoor portraits, candid shots, detail shots, a beautiful evening through to dancing under the disco lights. Throw in a firework display after dark and well, you’ve pretty much got the lot.

I’ve seen some of the first images and the main photographer did a fantastic job – in some ways for me it’s a privilege to be part of an event like that. I guess I’m lucky that I’ve found something where I can put in a 14 hour shift, work hard, learn a bundle and have fun at the same time………..

………..and it just makes me want to do it even more.smiley
