As a St Andrews wedding photographer, St Salvators chapel is one of my favourite buildings. Kat and Mike got married in the magnificent chapel and after some formal family photographs there, the guests made their way to the Drumoig Golf Hotel.
This was not a venue I’d been to before – but that was because they don’t really host weddings. They’d made an exception for Kat and Mike though – because her Dad had developed and built the whole place!
As he told me “21 years ago th
As an Edinburgh wedding photographer, I don’t normally work on a Monday. But Americans Neal and Debbie returned to the city to celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a Vows renewal. And since they celebrated a decade on to the day and hour, I ended up being with them. Almost everything was the same. Debbie even wore the same dress! The Rev Melville Schofield came out of retirement to renew the ceremony of a decade before, Debbie’s son Eddie walked her down the aisle once ag
I first went to Mar Lodge last year – and the second time I visited was a month later! Those two visits confirmed my view that Mar Lodge is one of the great undiscovered (by me) venues in Scotland.
Originally built as a hunting lodge for the Duke and Duchess of Fife in 1895, it unfortunately burned down in the 1990s while being renovated. The immaculate restoration has now reulted in a complex of luxury appartment with all mod-cons (with the exception of a mobile phone signa
Wedderburn Castle, in the Scottish Borders near Duns, is one of my favourite venues to visit. It’s not just the stately building, the magnificent rooms and grounds. There’s also a lovely feeling to the place, of relaxation and care. Not to mention the food! They are one of the few venues I know that employ their own chef. No matter how large or small the wedding party, or whatever the weather throws at you, there’s plenty of scope for some wonderful wedding photography.
If all the photographs in my new wedding gallery were from the same wedding, it would be the perfect wedding! (At least from a wedding photographers point of view…..)
Last week I posted about the ‘look of love’ that I capture at each wedding. Those are the full page photographs in any album.
But there’s always plenty of other special moments that capture the atmosphere and essence of any wedding, and in these, my favourite Scotland wedding photographs of 2013, I hope to dem
Summer finally arrived in time for Dean and Paul’s celebration at Wedderburn Castle last weekend. Not only did the sun make an appearance, but the midges did too, and their Friday night bbq had the backing track of the annual Jim Clark rally taking place on the roads around Duns.
Saturday was quieter, but no less warm. After a hilarious ceremony conducted by the local registrar, guests were entertained by two friends, one singing and one accompanying her on the piano. Then w
Well – sort of. I’ve just been awarded 18th place in the Wedding PhotoJournalists Association quartery competition. Eighteenth doesn’t seem much to boast about, but it is an international competition, and there’s an awful lot of very, very good photographers around the world! Including my colleague Nick Kirk from Lanarkshire, who was awarded 4th place. The photo below was taken at Gemma and James’ wedding at Wedderburn Castle, and was entered in the ‘creative portrait of brid
