I am now an "International Wedding Photographer!"
Sounds cool, doesn't it? I love my job. It is so much fun to be involved in weddings. It's even more fun to travel to new places and experience new things. My good friend Stacy lives in England and I had the great fortune of photographing her wedding. It was so beautiful. Her and Mark ( Conners, as his Brittish friends know him ) were married in a 12th century Abbey. The Master of Ceremonies announced the days events like they were royalty, ( I kept looking around for a guy to blow a long horn for everyone's attention.) It was like something out of romatic fairytale. Stacy was absolutely beautiful and her new husband was as charming as they get. Congratulations you two!
Here is your slideshow!
There were so many wonderful, surprising things about Leamington. My sister came with me to take care of Zoë, who basically slept through the entire trip, and we laughed at street signs and had mild heart attacks from driving on the wrong side of the street. We made friends with a retired military guy on a bus by asking him what a "humped pelican crossing" was. He said it is a place in the street for people to cross, it has a bump in the road and the poles are painted pink. So there you go. Humped pelican crossing... Of course!
We toured Warwik Castle on a rainy grey day. They had an ice skating rink in the middle of the grounds which seemed very out of place.
Did you know that even babies have to have passports? I think that this year, you will also need to have them to travel to Canada and Mexico. She is gaining frequent flyer miles already! You are never to young to gain some culture.
