    Hi everyone!

    Brand new to this, but thanks to everyone for all the information that has been contained on this site, I am back all the way in the UK and planning a wedding abroad has been a nightmare, but thanks to all the info on this site it has really helped!

    I am definately a fan!

    I am getting married at the El Dorado Royale on May 21st at 5.00pm.

    Thanks folks

    Millie & George x

      hi millie and george! welcome. congrats on the engagement. ive been to EDR twice for weddings and really like it. have you been?

      here are a few weddings ive shot there. thought this might be helpful -

      marie and jocelyns EDR wedding

      el dorado royale pics

      elizabeth medina and matt and sol also have posted slideshows on this forum so if you search you should be able to find those too. lots of chances to see great weddings from there!!!

      also im so glad you are here for another reason. where are you in the UK? im coming to london in september to shoot my first UK wedding. im so excited. the wedding itself is in canterbury kent. did i get that right? ive been promised that hugh grant - or at least my couples version of hugh grant - is going to pick me up at the airport and wisk me away to where i need to go for the wedding weekend. they are having a barbee and a marquis. which to us yanks means a cookout and a tent - i think! we are also doing a day after and have an in to shoot in the downing street area. i guess thats a big deal.

      did i say im excited? anything i need to know? anything i shouldnt miss? im sure there is so much to do in my off time in london i will be completely overwhelmed. sorry to jack your thread but id love any advice you have to offer. thanks for your time.

      and let me know if i can answer any questions about RM or the EDR. congrats again!!!!
