Vows

Photo by Albert Palmer – Katie and Matthew exchanged wedding vows outside in San Galgano Abbey in Tuscany. Fortunately the mayor and translator moved to the side which allowed me to get this long shot with a 135mm lens.

Walking down the aisle

Photo by Albert Palmer – I love this shot of Souraya walking down the aisle towards her groom Alan. Deciding to walk alone is a big thing but she loved every moment! Smiling and waving to her friends and family (and a few cameras!) along the way. It sums up her big heart and fun personality and it’s great to see people do things differently at their wedding.
