And now for part 2 of Jennifer & William’s wedding in Henley Upon Thames. When Jennifer first told me of her plans to have a complete black out marque I had a flutter of nerves. How would that look? Would there be any light for the photography? I spoke with a few people and did a fair bit of Google searching and started to warm to the idea. It would certainly be a unique look for a wedding reception and I started to feel excited about it. You can see from the photographs that the effect was pretty fantastic. The lighting was a challenging at some angles, but we like a good challenge!
It reminded me of this song by Incubus:
I lay my head unto the sand
the sky resembles a backlit canopy
with holes punched in it
I’m counting UFO’s, I signal them with my lighter
and in this moment I am happy, happy…
