When Rhea and David contacted me to photograph their wedding at the Town Hall in Bournemouth I was told it was a small wedding. They were getting married there and then going on to Langtry Manor Hotel nearby.
Rhea and I exchanged lots of emails about the details and one thing I was told is that they were tall – I might need a step ladder.
Now I take such comments seriously so I did indeed bring a step stool even though I am 6′ 1″ myself.
Years ago I worked in IT. I remember some of the early weddings that came out of meetings on forums. This was way before dating sites.
What I didn’t know until the day was how they met. You know those “very British problems” posts that you see on the Internet? Apparently there is an Instagram hashtag for tall people’s problems! That’s how they met. On Instagram. That’s a first for me!
Understandably their wedding included lots of selfies posted to Instagram. And why not?
Did I need the step? Not really – but I was definitely having to look up to the happy couple at times!
PS: One of the best confetti throws in ages!
