THE WEDDING SPEECH. Santiago de Compostela, Spain, August 2000.

As a freelance photographer I was commissioned by advertising agencies and I also did reportage style wedding photography, predominately in black and white, for some years.

Along the way I met some very nice people (and a few that weren’t so very nice) but these two are most definitely among the first category. I was naturally delighted when they asked me to be their wedding photographer and to join them and their wedding party for four days in Spain before and after the event.

We’ve remained good friends ever since and have worked together on a number of exciting and rewarding music and publishing projects – it’s been a real pleasure to know them both.
