hello

Hello, I'm tired.

Photobucket

We have three weddings this week. I think three weddings in one week might be more insane than two weddings in one weekend, but I'll let you know once it's over.

Yesterday we were at Crear, one of our bestest venues and the following conversation was had:

Photobucket

Guest A: "how long do you have to go? If you don't mind me asking."
Guest B: "about 10 days by the looks of her"
Me: (bearing my 'oh, how amusing you are' smile) "12 weeks actually."
Guests A, B, C, D & E: (collectively) "whoaaaaaa."

Photobucket

I'm sure it's a surprise to no one that weddings are getting harder. Although t's not actually the work that sucks but the sitting in the car on the way to and from the weddings that jiggles everything most unpleasantly. And the getting up really early. And the cheese sandwiches for dinner. And I don't care much for having to dress nice and wash my hair either. But the work is actually still mostly great.

Standing up is easier than sitting (I can breath standing up, and my abdominal muscles don't ache so horrendously) and taking photos instead of sitting at the desk all day editing is the most wonderful treat for both body and soul.

And and and! Waiters are much much nicer to me now, the girls bring me food and drinks and ask me if I'm ok and the teenage boys grin at me (big grins full of braces) and hold open doors. I love it.

Photobucket

N says that the teenage boys are grinning because I've clearly been 'getting some' but I think they're just sweeties.

Photobucket

Of course there's always the chance that I now remind them of their mothers or aunts or some other older, bigfatmotherly types, but let's leave that idea well alone, m'kay?

Photobucket

Oh yes, the point. The point of this post was to say hello, I still love you and I'll prolly be away for the rest of the week. And however long it takes to recover from three weddings in one week.

Photobucket

In the meantime perhaps you can amuse yourselves with a glimpse at (or a thorough browse through, whichever tickles your fancy) our Lillian and Leonard blog and some of the weddings we've done so far this summer.

Photobucket

Of course, that's just a tiny selection because we still have five that we've done over the last few weeks that haven't been edited in the slightest. Eight by Sunday. But that doesn't scare me. It doesn't it doesn't it doesn't. Honestly.
