The World is a small place indeed Mike, Eleanor, Steve, Diane, though there is a small part of me which believes we have just been transported on to the set of The Truman Show. Actually, this is perhaps more aptly fervent proof that the ‘Six degrees of separation’ theory where all living people on this planet are six or fewer steps away from each other is alive, well and beating in tune with a mid 40s Italian Canadian crooner, whose ancestry is Croatian, which per chance, happens to be where I am visiting next Summer. See the circles are starting again! Happy memories from your weddings, as these pictures hopefully share.

The second image in this loose diptych reveals a wonderful mirror, in terms of that release I often see as brides and grooms steady themselves for the emotion that lies beyond. This is made in the church just shy of an hour later from the first picture and of course there is no communication from anyone to trigger this response, merely the moment of realisation this is it, this is what all the planning and expectation has been for and about.
