All the weather apps on my phone agreed on one thing. “Feels like -7c” they reported for the day of Lynsey and Sergio’s wedding in Edinburgh.
They both wanted photogrtaphs around Edinburgh though, so after the ceremony at Canongate church, we braved the cold and wind and did a very quick shoot inbetween jumping in and out of a very warm car!
The Balmoral Hotel‘s heating matched it’s magnificence, thankfully, and the rest of the day was spent in the oppulance of its grand re
If Tamsin and Nick’s wedding was cold and wet, two days later, Gareth and Fumino’s wedding at Wedderburn Castle was cold and snowy. And not only did they brave the cold and white stuff to pose in front of the castle – they did it TWICE, so that Fumino could show off both her traditional kimono, but also her white wedding dress.
There was a real mixture of cultures for the day. Gareth is originally from Liverpool, but his family now live in Dundee. He and Fimono live in Tokyo
I suppose, if you’re going to get married in March, you should expect bad weather. Except, a year ago, spring had truely sprung and there was a real warmth in the air – we all know what this year’s ‘spring’ has been like! So it was a day of brollies – but also of meeting fantastic guests, sharing in the ceremony in St Giles Cathedral, and then travelling on to the equally marvellous Winton House for their reception.
The sun did peek out, briefly, enabling a few extra photos,
January 2nd seems an odd date for a wedding – but after 12 years together, Louisa and Andy picked Louisa’s birthday as their wedding day. I’d met them over two years ago at Rachel and Callum’s wedding, where their beautiful daughter Megan had been a flower girl (and manic dancer) and they had kindly booked me shortly afterwards.
These are some of the black and white photos I will be printing for them. I hope they tell the story of their day: Louisa getting ready surrounded b
Last weekend I travelled up to Boath House, near Nairn, for Ali and Angie’s Civil Partnership celebrations. It was a very intimate affair, with only 16 guests, but the whole day was filled with love and laughter. Despite the amazing autumnal colours in the grounds of Boath House, Angie and Ali had also fallen in love with the beach at Nairn. We spent 15 minutes there, along with their friend Crystal (chief coat wrangler, to keep them warm in between the photos) and then heade
What a way to start the year! My first big wedding of the year was a combination of Irish and Scottish families – and on a day that Ireland beat England at the Rugby! The omens couldn’t have been better….. The whole affair was organised with great style by the inimitable Yvonne from Sixpence Weddings and featured some hallmark classic features, such as Pipe Major Iain Grant at his best. It was a joyous affair, full of laughter and love, and I wish Gemma and Stephen all the be
Historic Stirling Castle is a wonderful place to celebrate a wedding, especially when you fill it full of surprises! And even at the beginning of December, it was surprisingly warm (inside, anyway!) There was an owl delivering the rings, and superb performances from the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and the castle Pipe band. It was a day full of laughter, smiles, dancing…. and two small children, Andy’s nephew and niece as page boy and flower girl, who tried to steal the show! #Scot
It always helps when I have a smiling bride, and Rosie was certainly that – even though her Dad did his best to embarrass her in his speech. And then the Best Man sang his speech – A Boy Named Sandy, to the tune of Johnny Cash’s A Boy Named Sue. It certainly made for a different first dance!
It was a day full of laughter, from the minister leaving her mic on while chatting to Rosie before the ceremony, to the speeches, to the exuberant dancing. #WeddingPhotography #Lanark #S
