Townsend’s Vanuatu Holiday

About a year ago I was lucky enough to get booked to shoot a wedding in Vanuatu and I must admit I’d been excited about the opportunity ever since. It was a pretty easy decision to use this opportunity to have a family holiday at the same time…..so the whole family has been looking forward to it as well!

The wife was envisioning lazing by the pool in the sun with a good book and cocktail. My boy was looking forward to playing pool or table tennis or golf any chance he could get. There was no doubt my daughter was excited about a buffet for every meal. And as for me, I was pretty pumped about the photography opportunities on a tropical island.

We arrived to less than average weather and to be honest it didn’t really improve to meet my expectations until the last day……but what I can say is that when the weather is good, OMG paradise!

Although there was a lot of wind and a bit of rain (loads on the wedding day) we still managed to fall for Vanuatu. She was very different to our expectations and quite infectious! Although there are some very touristy, commercial parts to Vanuatu, the majority of her is quite raw and genuine. And despite the recent hardship, the people are still amazingly friendly

It’s not often we go on holiday and get all sad on the last day about leaving……it‘s like we have unfinished business in Vanuatu. I have a feeling we will return!
