Oh, I don't know Geoff. So much is expected of wedding photographers these days and I do admire the good ones. When there's no second chance it puts a lot of pressure on the photographer, particularly on such an important occasion. As I said above, I had a certain amount of luck on my side and it could easily have gone the other way and become really stressful. Years ago I would have been encouraged by your suggestions but these days I like to just enjoy my photography with no pressure.
Mind you, I
specialise in marriage break-ups and, in full war correspondent kit, capture the flying pots and pans. That would be something different, lol.
