Alan Riddick R.I.P.
It was with the greatest of sadness that I heard only today the news of toastmaster Alan Riddick’s untimely death a few months ago. I had the enormous pleasure of working with Alan at weddings where I was the wedding photographer and he the toastmaster, the last of which was Vicki and James’ wedding last Christmas Eve. It is devastating to think that I shall never again have the opportunity to work with this dignified yet warm man, who always managed to balance immense professionalism with a firm but gentle hand on the proceedings which would ensure that any function went smoothly. He always spoke of his family with great love, dedication and affection, and although I never had a chance to meet them I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Kay and the rest of Alan’s family.
