I’d been looking forward to this past weekend for a few weeks now as on the Saturday it was Derek & Dorothy’s Wedding. I wrote earlier about these two very special people and was really pleased to see that so many of you had taken the time to send them ‘Congratulations’ by posting in the Comments section; so many of you in fact that I actually printed out 5 A4 pages worth of comments and gave them to Derek and Dorothy after their Wedding Breakfast.
During Derek’s speech, in which I found it a real challenge to hide the tears, he made mention of their photos that had appeared here on the blog and of the comments you’d all sent in. To say both he and Dorothy are overwhelmed by your kindness is an understatement. They are both clearly emotionally moved that people they don’t know from all around the world had written a message to them. Needless to say Derek & Dorothy have said that they will write a message back to you all and I’ll be sure to post it here on the blog along with some photos from their very special day.
For those of you who haven’t read Derek & Dorothy’s story here on the blog, I’d recommend you go take a look. In my opinion they set the standard that all should follow; their view on life, love and friendship is inspirational and should you ever need to be reassured that there is such a thing as ‘True Love’ you need look no further than these two wonderful people.
Incidentally the photo above is one that I took at Derek & Dorothy’s Wedding of two of their closest friends Steve & Gilly Duffy; a couple of people I have to thank for recommending me and for also introducing me to Derek & Dorothy.
Before I sign off I just want to say a BIG thank you to my Buddy Vince Callaghan who was second shooter and assistant on Saturday and who despite the 30+ degree heat and my constant ‘Can you hold the light just there, left a bit, down a bit’ demands was an absolute star and took some cracking shots of his own too.
The photo of Vince above was taken and edited with my new iPhone 4, and yes I admit I was one of ‘those’ people that got up at silly o’clock to cue in line on launch day 🙂
Talking of the iPhone 4 I’m really pleased with the upgrade particularly around the built in camera and HD video recording; so much so I’ll post about it later in the week and as well as showing examples of photos I’ll also show you an example of some of the movie editing you can do with the iMovie App which is the iPhone version of Apple’s Desktop Movie editing suite; very impressive stuff.
Catch you later 🙂
