Bad news, famous people: Wedding mania shows no signs of abating, and with the rise of drones, there’s yet another tool for tech-savvy paparazzi looking to get their money shot. Take, for example, the recent wedding of 73-year-old musical legend Tina Turner.
Spiegel reports that Ms. Turner and her fiance, a German music producer, held the celeb-heavy ceremony at the singer’s Swiss estate and even hung up a big curtain to shield the gathering. Photogs got creative:
“In the race for an exclusive wedding picture, Marti’s colleague Claudio Meier came up cold. The freelance photographer equipped himself with the latest technology and launched a remote-controlled drone from in front of Tina Turner’s estate. Meier wanted to fly the aircraft, a so-called quadrocopter, over Turner’s extravagant garden in order to get a good shot of the event.”
