I guess that is why I am still drawn to the sea and have chosen to live here on the coast, even if Margate's weather isn't quite so clement and, although our sea has its blue moments, they are never as vivid as the Med which can always take my breath away.
As I typed here yesterday it was rainy and grey, so I attempted to create a warmer atmosphere by playing my CD of music from 'The Godfather'. Thanks to composer Nino Rota and director Francis Ford Coppola, I doubt that I shall ever see another big church wedding without hearing their amazing main theme from the movie in my mind and recalling the wedding party scene.
The last big white wedding I attended as a guest here, was in a stately home where the photographer had a team of three and a fee of £10,000 + VAT. The last big white wedding I observed was in Sorrento at Sant'Agnello and believe me, when the Italian families do a wedding they do it in style! It is still one of the memorable highlights of that day.
According to my photographic magazines, some UK wedding photographers are 'giving up' through lack of demand. In Italy, instead of whinging and quitting, they have a cooperative to market their services. Today's main picture is from www.giannidinatale.com

Thanks for stopping by. [Today's Margate forecast is for wall-to-wall sunshine and 14 degrees. Not bad for October. Again, we are truly blessed but still ... Sorrento calls ...]
