Gavin and Katherine’s wedding photographs from Mar Lodge

What a wonderful day at one of my favourite venues – Mar Lodge near Braemar. Katherine and Gavin couldn’t stop smiling – and kissing – throughout the day, and it was wonderful to see such happiness between not just them, but all their family and guests.
I was a bit dubious about having a ceilidh for such a small number of guests, but enthusiasm and the excellent calling by Katherine’s father proved me wrong!
Here are a few highlights from Katherine and Gavin’s wedding photographs from Mar Lodge, and as usual, there are more photos to see by clicking this order prints link.

Lindsay and Michael’s Bunchrew House Wedding Photographs

After photographing hundreds of weddings over the years, I’ve come to expect the unexpected. However, I wasn’t expecting the phone call I got before 8am the other Saturday morning from another wedding photographer. “I’ve done something to my knee and I can’t put any weight on it – can you get to Inverness to cover a wedding for me, by 12 noon?”
I’m at least three hours from Inverness, but luckily I had charged batteries and a clean shirt ready – and they haven’t switched on the average speed cameras on the A9 yet!
So, four hours after the initial phone call I met Michael and Lindsay at Bunchrew house, and had a quick chat about their timetable for the day – but not before the staff at Bunchrew House had welcomed my arrival with a mug of coffee!
And that, I thought, was the end of the unexpected for the day. Although all weddings are different and individual, there’s still some things that never change – the bride will look beautiful, the groom handsome, the weather will often be unpredictable, and it’s all tied together with an eclectic mixture of guests.
So I was ‘mildly’ surprised when, after the speeches – a belly dancer took to the dining room floor, performing between the tables for Lindsay and Michael’s appreciative friends and family!
And then to cap it all, a fully equipped band tour bus turned up, with the band on board. Lindsay’s favourite band had been performing in York the previous night, so to get them up to Inverness on time, and refreshed, she hired the luxury coach for them! And it was perfect for some quiet portraits of the two of them.
Three firsts for me in, one day. As it will be for Michael and Lindsay, this was a day to remember for me!
Below are a selection of the Black and White photos I have prepared.

Mirren and David’s Silver Wedding anniversary in North Berwick

Twenty five years ago, Mirren and David got maaried in Gullane, and held their wedding reception at the Marine Hotel in North Berwick. For their Silver Wedding Anniversary they decided to hold another party – at the same venue!
Old friends from Scotland and new friends from down south (where Mirren and David now live) all travelled to be with them and their family for the big celebration by the sea.
A short walk along the beach provided some lovely relaxed portraits of the happy couple before they welcomed their guests. And they all worked off their dinner with a fantastic ceilidh that lasted well after I had left.
They had the photos from their wedding on display and it was interesting to see how fashion has changed the photography and the subjects. Every photo in the album was a very stiff posed shot of various groups of people – and yet apart from their hair styles, Mirren and David look very much the same twenty five years on! David even claimed to be wearing the same outfit he wore on his wedding day…..
