A few weeks back I was asked to document the wedding of my good friends Catrin and Oliver. For me it was the first time to document a whole day, from the hairdresser session in the morning until the party at night. I covered the whole day with 3 cameras. My Olympus OM-D, my Olympus E-PL 1 and the Fuji X100. Every camera did a great job on the day. The Fuji is especially unobtrusive during the party, as it is quite small and has good internal flash capabilities.

Unfortunately the weather was not so good that day. It rained most of the day and the few pictures I could take outside were during the few "dry" moments.

After the ceremony in the church we went to a nearby manor (now a hotel) to shoot some portraits.

During the dinner/party I tried the "Black foamie thing" technique from Neil van Niekerk on my OM-D for the first time. And it worked really well under those underlit disco lights. It takes some time to get used to, but I found the results very pleasing.

We had much fun that day and I thank Catrin and Oliver for their trust in me giving me the opportunity to document one of the best day of their lives! :-)
