Elena + Gaetan

A first look at the rather awesome wedding of Elena and Gaetan in Port Vila, Vanuatu.  Shooting a wedding in a South Pacific tropical paradise makes for a tough job- but someone’s gotta do it, might as well be me :).

Their wedding featured a stunning ceremony location on the water followed by rather epic fire dancing, the release of wish lanterns and fireworks – phewf!

In case you want some amusement, I was also shown how to dance solo with a chair by an inspirational guest.

This is how I saw it all unfold.

    I saw this little piece and i felt that it summed up all i wanted to say:
    “So perfect and fine,
    With all your friends round you
    To have a good time.
