Thanks Derren!

Yeah, I know. Evelyne was right!

Anyway, this weekend was kinda interesting…. I managed to blog one of my fave weddings of the year, one that happened to have Derren Brown as a guest. He actually knows the couple really well. The groom, Coops, is his PA.

After blogging the wedding I actually went off to Peckforton Castle in Cheshire for the day to shoot Kim & Ben’s wedding. A very cool, fun, but quite tricky wedding to shoot. The weather was all over the place, the castle was dark, the couple didn’t really want much except documentary photos and a couple of groups, hardly any portraits…. Anyway, on a break I saw an email from Coops saying “I think after Derren’s tweet it may have temporarily broken your site earlier, sorry!”

Derren Brown had tweeted a link to my site. Derren has 1.6 million Twitter followers!

Luckily the site wasn’t down too long and normal service was restored. And the number of followers I have on Twitter jumped. Not quite to 1.6 million though.

Derren’s a lovely guy and I’m extremely grateful for the great plug. I’m looking forward to catching his new show when it comes to Wolverhampton next year.
