A busy month of photographic events and adventures was capped off by shooting Oscar and Sally's wedding, again with Sven (Bokeh-Monster). I had a lot of fun shooting this wedding, although it was full of challenges and learning experiences, as much of the ceremony and reception was spoken in Korean :) I've been to South Korea previously, but can't remember much beyond the words for 'hello' and 'thank you' unfortunately! Luckily we could tell well enough what was going on, got all the important shots, and also got to enjoy something different, which keeps things interesting for me! The ceremony was held outside in the bright sunshine, which provides further photographic challenges, rather than linguistic, but I think we dealt with that reasonably well. Going for a softer colour palette I think helps with harsh sunlight.
The ceremony was held on impressive grounds, with all the decorations and food provided by volunteers. I was very happy to receive my own lunch box full of interesting Korean snacks, and a can of coffee to keep me going. Of course I drank Sven's can also ;) Oscar and Sally were good sports, after the reception lunch we explored around the grounds a little before heading off to a local beach for the setting sun. Time was limited before their family dinner engagement, but I think we got some interesting shots, and I'm particularly happy with the lead image and few at the end of this post!
