I had a strange experience last night. I was quite happily watching a programme about the origins of the solar system and nodded off some time before the end. I awoke at 3 in the morning with the television still on and was confronted by Conway Twitty gazing into my eyes and singing about how much he loved me. It really was quite surreal for a few seconds.
More interestingly it did remind me to finish off the Christmas season, with Amira and Adam's Wedding at The Regent, London.
Amira and Adam are friends of Asmaa, Yusuf Islam's (formerly Cat Stevens) daughter. My wife Nina planned Asmaa and Francesco's wedding last year and I did the photography , so a very nice referral, thank you. Hopefully you now understand why Conway Twitty reminded me to mention Adam and Amira's wedding - a sort of bizarre musical connection!
Although the Regent Banqueting Suite is incredibly ornate, the storage room that Amira was given to get ready in was pretty difficult to work with, still, it forces you to get creative. I have this photo up in the hall at home:
This was the first time that I'd seen henna tatoo's up close, they are incredibly intricate and must take hours to do.
Adam does the funniest impersonations of Tony Blair and George Bush you could imagine. He was persuaded to take the stage for a while and had me laughing so much that it was almost impossible to shoot properly.
I hope that one day I wake at 3am and there will be Adam with his own comedy show. Far preferable to Conway Twitty promising me undying love!
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Mr Twitty, you can learn more about him and his music here.
I have always been a fan of Yusuf Islam and his excellent website is well worth a visit.
Finally don't forget to visit Nina's website to learn about her celebrity wedding planning services.
