Wedding Photographer Catches on Fire at Ceremony
While we all know that certain photographers risk their lives daily to get images that reflect the dangerous subjects they are shooting, you may not know that some wedding photographers are also going to similar extremes.
Case in point? A South African photographer, Jacki Buniquel, who chose to walk sideways while trying to snap the perfect image of the bride walking down the aisle with her father. In doing so she has accidentally brushed against a candle with the back of her head, which caused her hair to go up in flames.
Fortunately Jaqui was relatively unscathed and took to her blog saying “In that situation the only thing you can do once the flames have been patted out is to once again …… laugh and keep on shooting. It was funny. It was certainly a wedding I will never forget that is for sure and my hair did actually need a trim!”
The incident certainly lit up the room with laughter though, with everyone attending the wedding relieved to see that, thanks to some quick firefighting action by one of the groomsmen, Jacki was fine and in fact she found the scenario pretty amusing.
While it certainly sounds like something more likely to be viewed in a wedding comedy, perhaps it’s also a timely warning for everyone to take care with Christmas candles this year!
