So being something of an aviation and space exploration geek, I was amazed when Matt told me he works for ESA, the European Space Agency.
“Wow!”, I said. “Have I got a real live rocket scientist sitting in my consultation room?!?”. “No.”, said Matt, “I’m in accounts.” Oh well. But hey, he still gets to see astronauts occasionally, so it’s not all bad. Dr Carla is a published, PhD-wielding osteoarchaeologist. (Try saying that with a mouthful of cream crackers!) I was absolutely delighted to photograph the wedding of these two amazingly talented people, who’d been together since their teenage years at school. Since the ESA headquarters are in Holland and Matt & Carla live there, I was even able to regale them with my smattering of Dutch, although it has to be said that, thankfully, my wedding photography is much, MUCH better than my Dutch!
