Lauren and Tims Oxfordshire wedding

I’ve known Lauren and her parents since I first moved to North Berwick, nearly 15 years ago. Still, it was a pleasure to be asked to photograph her wedding to Tim at Notley Abbey, a six hour drive away.
The weather Gods answered our prayers in the middle of a particularly wet summer, and the sun shone throughout (well almost)
The same can’t be said of the “where are the rings” Gods!
And if you’re wondering about the horse whips in some of the photos…. Don’t ask! It’s a long story, best told by Lauren’s father, and much to the embarrasement of Tim….

Sarah and Kilian’s St Andrews wedding

The weather is always important at a wedding – it dictates so much of the planning and logistics. I have a total of six weather apps on my iPhone….
Yet none of them predicted the weather at Sarah and Kilian’s St Andrews wedding. Sunshine for the bride’s arrival, raining immediately after the ceremony, sunshine again on the beach then threatening black clouds rushing towards us!
We all managed to avoid getting wet though – I have found that it very rarely rains for the whole day if you’re on the east coast of Scotland!
Sarah’s parents were also married in the magnificent St Salvator’s chapel, and her father mentioned that the last time he’d been in the Lower College Hall was to sit his finals…. And here he was giving a speech at his daughter’s wedding!
There are more of their St Andrews wedding photographs on the order photos page.

Emma and William’s Scottish Borders wedding

As you can imagine, I listen to lots of speeches. Whether it’s the Best Man, the Father of the Bride, or the Minister conducting the ceremony, I’ve usually heard most of what’s being said, in one form or another, before.
But Emma and William’s Scottish Borders wedding ceremony in Jedburgh’s Old Parish Church was different. It wasn’t just the lack of a central aisle, which meant I couldn’t photograph the couple as I wished to, it was what the Minister said in his address.
My own parents’ 60th wedding anniversary is looming on the horizon, and the ministers words on the meaning of love, in the long term, took on a special meaning. I’m not going to tell you what he said, as I’m going to use it myself in April next year! And I want it to remain a surprise….
After those lovely words we all made out way up to the Carfraemill Lodge Hotel, 30 minutes away. At a visit before the ceremony I’d discovered a single track road, that 400 meters from the venue, had the most wonderful tunnel of trees. I’m a sucker for either a beach or trees, so I was happy! As were Emma and William when I showed it to them.
There’s a small selection of photos here, and more to see if you click on this link to the order photos page.
