Default Nana and Nader - Egyptian Wedding

I'm currently over in Egypt at the moment as my sister-in-law was married on Friday so we are having a bit of a holiday here as well and to catch up with the in-laws and all my wifes friends etc.

I've not photographed a family wedding before, usually like to just be a guest and chill, but they wanted me to do it. With the temperature of about 33 degrees in church it wasn't comfortable for me, but at least I was sure we were not going to see rain. I didn't get much time with the B&G as here couples always go for a studio session first so I had 20 mins after the service by which time the sun had set so we went for a bit of a view over the mediterannean sea. I don't think this was my best work as there is a language barrier so my wife had to translate for bits they didn't understand (my Arabic isn't the best and nor is their English).

As ever, happy to hear what you think and take on any suggestions and ideas for improvement.

Great shots as always but number 1 seems to be a little out of focus except for your signature/water mark on my monitor (I am guessing you wanted that look to the photo.....). Thanks for sharing.

Well done - I'm sure that both the B&G will be very happy to get copies of them ... and you get a holiday too

Regards, Phil

Nice shot Mark, shallow DOF (f1.8) with flash. Not an easy thing to do and get correct exposure.

Simply stunning. The b&g must be so wrapped.

Thanks a lot all. Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I'm still on holiday and not been able to get online for a few days. Will be back to normal next week when I'm home.
