Photographer for the day! At lovely Lunga! For Robin and Eve. Who made my heart sing.

So. The sun came out with the bride. She wore lemon and the groom wore blue. There were two ladies from Laos and a haybale poised congregational rendition of 'I could walk one hundred miles'. The father of the bride speech was funny and poignant and beautiful and loving. He referred to his daughter as beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside and we knew this to be true - even me, the photographer, who met Eve only on the day - because the heart of who she was and who he was and who they were together shouted out gently for all to see.

So many children. Beautiful in frocks and braces and running wild and making us smile and refusing to sit through anything formal and making my pictures come to life with playfulness and happiness. And then family pictures and friend pictures that weren't really traditional group shots because that would have been way too formal and instead everyone just relaxed as if children for a while. I love the pictures that have come from this.

Music. A lady iced in red hat practiced the song that would be sung for the bride. Then she sung it outside in the light of the sun. Then friends on guitars. A ukelele playing bride who usurped her handsome groom a bit with a song of love that made us happy. Made him happy. A singing father. Duets.

And tears of joy. Smiles of happiness. Speeches that made you stop in your tracks and almost forget to take the picture because you wanted to hear the words that were being spoken with such love. Such joy.

And beautiful Lunga and Lunga time. Where else could such a perfectly beautiful wedding possibly take place? Without pomp or ceremony. With a beer baring wheelbarrow. With the wonderful Meg at the helm.

Sometimes it is truly a privilege to be the fly on the wall.

So, dearest Eve and Robin. I wish you all the happiness and joy in the world.
