Congratulations to Andrew & James

20.06.2015 Congratulations to Andrew and James who just got married at Lothian Chambers in Edinburgh! I was the only person to witness the signing of the register behind closed doors in the chambers, before the boys headed out into the Royal Mile grinning from ear to ear. They were re-united with a selection of best people (original cast members) from their civil partnership in 2010, and were jumping to celebrate with a few drinks. But not before we went shooting to mark the occasion with some photographs See further images on my facebook page here »

Chloe & Sam – Engagement Shoot

15.06.2015 Yesterday I enjoyed some sunshine with Chloe and Sam at Balbirnie House Hotel. The happy couple will get married early next year and put in a practice lap at this beautiful venue. The camera loved their sense of glamour and fun which made for a sizzling time in the sun. I reckon they take 1st prize for the best dressed couple this side of a wedding.

Congratulations to Kasia & Kris

02.06.2015 Currently gracing my computer screen – a beautiful homemade wedding at the exclusive setting of Aikwood Tower in Selkirk.. Kasia and Kris are originally from Poland and invited close family to attend their ceremony which was held outdoors in the back garden. They arranged or made almost everything themselves, including the bouquet which was hand made by Kasia. The sun made a timely appearance just in time to add a sparkle for the camera and keep everyone smiling. Here is a sneak peek of their intimate wedding day…

Fairy Ponds – Isle of Skye

14.05.2015 Yesterday I met up with Samantha and Roger who were on mini moon on the Isle of Skye. The happy couple just got married at Dalhousie Castle on Saturday and invited me along to do a trash the dress shoot at the Fairy Ponds. The original wedding dress (one of 2 worn by Samantha) and bouquet made the long trip too. We drew quite a crowd! Here is a sneak peek at what everyone was looking at…

Congratulations to Samantha & Roger

10.05.2015 Congratulations to Samantha and Roger who just got married at Dalhousie Castle in Edinburgh! Samantha is known to do a bit of wedding photography herself, so I was looking forward to being treated with some special touches on the day. Family and friends all gathered to witness a baby owl delivering the wedding rings in what proved to be an emotional ceremony in the chapel. Some unexpected sunshine soon dried away the tears as the happy couple sparkled in front of the camera. Here is a sneak peek of their fairytale wedding… View Full Post »

The Day Kirsty Balbirnie Got Married…

22.04.2015 Congratulations to Kirsty and Rick who just got married at Balbirnie House in Fife! Kirsty Balbirnie is a wedding planner by profession, so it came as little surprise that perfect clear blue skies graced her big day. Family, friends and members of staff all gathered to witness a roller coaster of emotion, glamour and sheer happiness. It looked like a fairytale straight out of hollywood and felt like Balbirnie House were hosting their own ‘royal’ wedding. What a lovely couple to photograph!

The easter weekend began with this beautiful wedding and a chance to be reunited with a few familiar faces.

Trash The Dress – Barcelona

18.03.2015 Hola! I spent the weekend in Barcelona ahead of a spectacular trash the dress shoot with Pamela and James. We managed to keep our rendezvous a secret but needed a few stiff drinks before heading out into public dressed like this. All I can say is we drew quite a crowd (the tourists loved the kilt) and it was an absolute blast to do! Here is a sneak peek of the happy couple in action on the streets of the gothic quarter…

Scottish Wedding Directory – Advert

06.01.2015 My new advert in the latest edition of the Scottish Wedding Directory magazine. This image was shot at the end of October after Kerry and Kris agreed on an ambitions plan to trash the dress in Glencoe. They tackled the 1000ft climb up Bidean Nam Bian in a wedding dress and kilt (there were a few hairy moments!) before braving the spray and thunderous noise of the waterfall. It was here we had a rendezvous with the monster waterfall which reminded me of the Bounty advert from the 1980’s. The lovely blur effect on the water was created with a neutral density filter which blocked out light and forced a slow shutter speed on the camera. I’d say it looks very natural and fresh!

Happy New Year!

02.01.2015 Congratulations to Kate and Alistair who just got married at Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh. Not many people choose New Years Day to get married, and even fewer would be brave enough to take the entire bridal party ice skating afterwards. Judging by the look on their faces, the crowd that gathered to watch in Princes Street Gardens Ice Rink simply could not believe their eyes. What an amazing and original thing to do!
