I didn’t really know about destination weddings until I started out as a wedding photographer. I don’t know when and where they started, but I’m a fan. There’s just something about taking all your closest friends and family abroad – guests are extra merry and keen on a bit of adventure, the festivities are extra joyous. Simon and Jolien married on a lovely September day in the tiny village of Flers, France. Their wedding was a French fete, complete with champange, oysters and great cheeses. The castle was adorned with roses straight out of Ronsards poetry. Everywhere you turned you could find little treasures, like paintings of deer and stuffend pheasants. The guests were beautifully dressed up, the laughter was loud and abundant. It was incredible. I’d happily sign for a career as a destination wedding photographer after this.
