Rehearsals

I turned on breakfast television this morning at 6.30 and saw that they were doing a dress rehearsal for the wedding so I dashed out with my camera but sadly I only got the tail end with some of the soldiers. They started rehearsals in the early hours of this morning but of course didn't tell anyone it was happening!
I also took a short video with my 7D, the first time I have used it to film so it's a bit wobbly and shaky as I got so excited!

 No one was outside Buckingham Palace this morning, the calm before the storm

  1. Justine! These are fabulous! Thank you so much for giving us a preview! I was hoping that now you are living in London we would get to see some of the Royal Wedding. These are so brilliant. Most impressed by the video footage.Won't be long before you are the official Royal Photographer!!!!

  3. I'm looking forward to your recount of the wedding. We don't own a TV and Germany isn't quite so crazy about the royal wedding as I'd like so I'm not sure if any pubs will be showing it live (as I'm sure the UK and Australia are doing). Think I'll have to live off reports and the autopsy in the newspapers. :)

  4. These are great! I, too, was hoping that you would share some of the wedding excitement.

    I have yet to use the video function on my 7D.

  5. Cool video . . .

    And I am so jealous you're there, in London, right now. I'd give anything to be there to see any part of the royal nuptials. Please keep sharing moments with us. We're living vicariously through you, with you.
    Thanks.

  7. Fabulous shots, Justine.....just one question. Is that a dog on that horse in the last shot?

  8. Wonderful shots, so glad you could catch them. Interesting little "green rooms". I have to say, the hype here in the US is bordering on the ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I'll be up in the wee hours to watch it all, but right now I wonder what is happening in the rest of the world that we are missing, because everyone is guessing what Kate is going to wear. :)

  12. How cool Justine!! I didn't look at the video, but I love these stills. The shot of Buckingham Palace with that gorgeous light-wow. Very nice to see it so quiet. Girl, you are in the right place at the right time.
    On Facebook they're joking how you create your "royal"/appropriate for the wedding name.
    Start with Lady, add one of your grandmother's names, choose the name of your first pet and hyphenate it with the street name where you grew up. That makes me Lady Virginia Myrtle-Boothby. Think I could get in?
    Enjoy the craziness and the once in a lifetime photo ops.

  19. This is all so cool to see! Thanks for sharing, I've been looking through all of the pics today. I especially like the one of the guards on the horses, second from the bottom. The light is wonderful!
