A wedding

My good friend and fellow landscape photographer Roger married Kara yesterday here in Wanaka. As groomsman part of my task was to make sure his camera and tripod ended up in the right places, such as the final staged photo shoot up on Mt Roy [via heli] in the evening, but I had enough free time to follow the event and the official photographer with my own camera.

We went to the standard wedding photo locations first, and I must say they do provide memorable settings...

Roger's mum, a very special person to me, came out from the UK . It was lovely to see her again, and she was one of the first in the church - a very top day for her especially...

Plans of a musical nature are hatched pre ceremony...

As nearly all parties in the ceremony are professionals in the medical world, an ambulance was used at one stage to ferry us to the photo shoot locations. Roger's sense of humour is obviously alive and well...

Roger and Kara's dog Mylie was a bit of star, but all became serendipitous when another wedding arrived at one of the locations, and then a family out walking arrived, and all had the same breed...

I wish them well in their commitment of love...

Thanks Bob.

Interesting things weddings, for myself anyway they bring up very varied memories. This one was certainly one I related too very much

Cheers
