This week I am going to continue with the indulgence I started in my previous blog article. This report will focus purely on the wedding of my sister, Helen, and therefore if you are not interested in weddings or participating in the global Duggleby past-time of ‘spot the facial characteristics to see if they look like us’ you might find this article a bit over the top.
Helen is not one to rush things unnecessarily and her engagement to Ignacio has lasted about 20 years. This meant they had plenty of time to prepare things properly, especially the seven home-made bridesmaids and page-boys. If you are in any doubt about these children’s Duggleby Viking heritage just take a look at the preponderance of blond hair and blue eyes (not surprising when you look at my sister but perhaps something of a rarity in southern Spain).
Needless to say I am sure you don’t want to waste time reading my commentary so I will let the photos do the talking. For context I have added some brief comments underneath each one. These pictures focus mainly on the official ceremony (the international paparazzi were not allowed access to the church). I have tried to capture some of the intimate events which would have escaped the formal photographers. My son, Alex, also flew in from Vienna and took some more (professional) pictures, particularly of the evenings festivities. You can see these by using this link. And if you are worried about my trusty dog RISKKO, don’t! His Spanish holiday blog can be found here.
