Christina and Ben celebrated three days of festivities for their wedding at Samode Palace in Jaipur. They came from Malaysia as did many of their family and friends, and I was invited to come and document all the fun.
However it was a little more “fun” than I bargained for. On the morning of the big day I was having breakfast on the terrace restaurant in the Palace. I was warned by staff not to sit out side. “monkey problem” they said. I saw the cutest little pair of Grey Langur Monkeys playing, I thought, what Monkey Problem? Boy was I wrong! Five minutes later out of nowhere appeared the big daddy of the Tribe! He was huge, and fierce, and fearless! (About twice the size as the one you will see in the slideshow chowing down on the wedding Decor!) Within a matter of seconds he was up on my table. I jumped back out of his way, I only time to grab my Iphone. My Camera was on the table ready to shoot after breakfast! He picks up the Camera by the strap! I thought OMG! Maybe he wanted to shoot the wedding? ;>) He really wanted my food. He would not back down, snarling his teeth at me. By this time all the wedding guests having their breakfast safely inside! Jumped up to come to the window and watch the drama! I was you could say a little terrified! Finally a waiter came out and threw a chair at the menacing monkey and my camera was left unharmed, but the photographer a little shaken! LOL!
Well I think the pics turned out ok regardless!
Ben and Christine were a stunning couple, and I really enjoyed being a part of your beautiful wedding at Samode Palace!
(Except for breakfast! ;>))
