Very good Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mick. And happy grandparenting!
Now that is a capture! WOWZA!
Ginnie Hart: We were so lucky, Robin, to just "happen" upon this photo shoot as we were moseying along in our boat. This was on a Monday, too. So fun. Thanks.

The duck, expecting some kind of calamity, is making a dash for the high ground...


Love it, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: The duck was getting the hell outta Dodge, Ray! Too much hanky-pank was going on! HA! Thanks.

There you go, only married for minutes and not speaking already.
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Les, I think he was telling her he had her back! Once they were in the boat (Astrid's image), you could see how much he fancied her. smile
This is great Ginnie... especially with the 2 boys on the river adding colour.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. i loved how life went on as usual all around this photo shoot. HA!
This is a true Fairy Tale Friday Ginnie... love it... she looks stunning just hanging theregrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. What a place for a wedding photo shoot!
What a dreamland spot.
Ginnie Hart: Can you imagine getting married there, Michael?!!!

It is amazing on how many weddings we bump in on our photo-hunts. We were just at the right place, at the right time.
Those kids make the picture.
This is a wonderful picture of the happy couple, I hope their 'wedding-boat' will have many happy travels.
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA. It really IS amazing how many weddings we have caught on our photo shoots! They always make us stop in our tracks because we're catching a special moment in time for the couple. This may have been the best "venue" of them all. Who would have expected it while on pour little boat-tour! And to think the kids just were ho-hum about the whole thing. I bet they see a lot of it throughout the summer months.

Ginnie Hart: HA! I think he was making sure he had her back, Elaine!

Very nicely put together Ginnie: a perpetual tale
Ginnie Hart: A never-ending story throughout history all over the world, Chris! smile Thanks.

Almost looks like a film set, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it does, Lisl. Not a bad idea! smile
Fantastic photograph, a fantastic idea. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Zielona. Dziękujemy.
oh là la mariée va tomber sur ces petits....,la robe de mariée me fait penser à une rose blanche
Ginnie Hart: I know, l'Angevine. No chance of her falling, however. A lot of people were looking out for her. smile Merci.
She looks rather precarious Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: Not a chance, Bill. The groom had her back. grin
Now this is much better a parade than mine Ginnie! I suspect they had their evening in one of those cozy windmills of yours..
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, who knows where they went after all this, Juan Carlos. It was quite exhausting, I'm sure, to go through all their shenanigans...though they did seem to be having fun. smile

Like a fairy-tale - y'know??? Love the moment captured here. WOW!
Ginnie Hart: Not like what we usually see in America, Marcie, right?! smile Thanks.
A wedding photo very original. She is very playful and fun and the colors are beautiful
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Marie. Merci. (BTW, your URL link is not working properly the last two times. Is there perhaps a wrong letter or something?)

Nice Ideasmile I hope, she´s well?smile(-:
Ginnie Hart: Let's hope so, Luiza. smile Danke.
Couldn't get a better picture if it was set up. Wonderful capture, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mary. It's the best wedding venue we've seen thus far! smile Thanks.

Hahahha!! Is she already so unhappy in her marriage that she's about to throw herself on to children below and drown herself? wink I wonder what state the dress was in after being draped over the bridge? A great capture, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Alan. So many questions, so little time. grin Thanks.

Oh, what a love-ly, charming scene- and your both's photos form a beautiful togetherness! Yes, Giethoorn is a delight, and your driving boat perspective gave such lovely aspects of this life on the waters!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. I think the official photographer would have gotten some great shots if he had been in a boat, too. smile
Things do not bode well, if the bride feels the need to jump at this early stage in the marriage smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Once she got into the Love Boat (Astrid's post), she seemed just fine, John. smile

very precarious, i hope she didn't fall in the water.. smile nice shot!
Ginnie Hart: She fell into a boat, so to speak, Rian...the Love Boat. smile Thanks.

I would like to see what the wedding photographer made of these poses. This picture has me longing for the visit.
Ginnie Hart: Astrid and I both said he should have been in a boat, too, because he would have had a different perspectgive altogether, Louis!

I love the total lack of interest by the kids in the canoes - like a bride hanging from a bridge is an everyday sight!

The link was a great extra - though I thought it was going to be the same shot, a big splash and a grinning groom!
Ginnie Hart: This is such a tourist town at this time of the year, George, it would surprise me if the kids don't see this every day. It's probably very ho-hum for them by now!
You two had a great day didn't you, two lovely photos.
Ginnie Hart: It was a fabulous day, Brian! smile Thanks.
That's rather a perilous perch - the lads seem not to have noticed - nice capture!
Ginnie Hart: This is something the lads probably see every day during the tourist season, Tom. No wonder it's ho-hum to them by now. But not to us! smile Thanks.
Superb Ginnie! I love it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Merci.

What a great capture. That looks a rathe athletic pose when wearing a wedding dress.
Ginnie Hart: HA! The things photographers will ask you to do in a photo shoot! smile Thanks, Cherry.

Though that's where they would end up.
Great capture Ginnie a sight that will not be often seen.
Ginnie Hart: A sight for sore eyes, Peter, right? smile Thanks.

Oh dear and I chastised Astrid for posting BF on a Saturday, silly me.
Ginnie Hart: One thing Astrid really knows well, Chad, is the days of the week...in both Dutch and English! grin
Pesky boaters...
Ginnie Hart: HA! For them it's all ho-hum, Larry. smile
That is possibly the best bridal pic I've seen. Well, there are others that are very nice, but none so unusual. I presume there was another photog around, yes? He's surely thinking, "I wonder if the guys have any of that Amstel left on ice?"
Ginnie Hart: You're very generous, Linda. Thank you. And yes, the "real" photographer was up on dry land, back-n-forth across the bridge behind us. Astrid and I wondered if maybe he wished he were in our boat! The POV was definitely different, I'm sure.

One of the best wedding photos I've ever seen.

Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Paule. Thank youj.
excellent image. very well positioned. and kudos for seizing the moment, for i guess it wouldnt have lasted long. wonder what could have intrigued the boys more than whats going on above them?
Ginnie Hart: We love when we "happen upon" wedding shoots like this, Ayush...which has actually been quite often in my 2.5 years here. This happens to be a big tourist town in the Netherlands, especially during the high season (now). My guess is these wedding shoots are very ho-hum to the kids who live there (and this was in mid-May).
That's an awesome wedding photo! I love it! Fun and vibrant!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Charles. We were so lucky to just happen upon it on a Monday outing! smile
This is so original, Ginnie, colourful and loads of fun. A great combination.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. We really felt lucky when we just happened upon this photo shoot in progress. smile
a story telling picture smile
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Joshi. Thank you.
This is fantastic Ginnie! This image with Astrids tell the story!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. It was such a fun "happenstance" for us both that day. smile
