Anna & Eamonn – DIY Wedding in Falkirk

13.08.2018 Congratulations to Anna and Eamonn who just got married at St Francis Xavier Church in Falkirk! And hooray for DIY weddings…this explosion of colour, love and happiness made my day. Pulling off a home made wedding in your parents back garden is no easy feat, but they managed it with some style and looked like they were loving every minute of it. And so did family and friends who had gathered from all over the world to join in the show of diversity. The meeting of different cultures was marked with a tea ceremony, and celebrated with their trademark quirkiness and fun nature. By the time the camera found the newly weds hiding alone in the leafy surroundings, it was almost impossible to stop them giggling, hugging and kissing. Hooray for geeky love! Here is a sneak peek of their wedding day. You can see further images on my facebook page here »

Louise & Marc – Wedding at Myers Castle

04.08.2018 Congratulations to Louise and Marc who just got married at Myres Castle in Fife! Family and friends gathered to take part in a fun Disney themed wedding (based on the 2009 film UP) and witness the happy couple tie the knot with a religious ceremony in the applestore. A hugely entertaining service climaxed with everyone joining in for an acoustic sing song before the newly weds headed outside for some photographs to mark the occasion. They soon found themselves wondering amongst the Vatican-styled walled garden and mazes, stopping only for canapés as the camera recorded their happiness. A bouncy castle proved surprisingly popular with the adults 🙂 and an assortment of games, toasted marshmallows and hog roast completed the sense of adventure. Here is a sneak peek of their colourful wedding day. You can see further images on my facebook page here »

Kirsten & Ben – Wedding at Carlowrie Castle

22.07.2018 Congratulations to Kirsten and Ben who just got married at Carlowrie Castle in Edinburgh! The weekend brought a fairytale wedding at this exclusive venue, with family and friends gathering in force to witness the happy couple tie the knot with a humanist ceremony. The Scottish weather had threatened to turn very traditional but surprisingly changed it’s mind and blessed the big day with magical fairy dust instead. Immediately after an entertaining (and quite tearful) ceremony, we headed out into the driveway for some photographs and showed everyone some Beetle love. The newly weds were soon all alone, turning on the style in front of the camera and beaming with wedding day gloss. I could swear there was smoke coming out of the battery compartment! What a gorgeous couple to photograph. You can see further images on my facebook page here »

Fiona and Fraser tied the knot in the Orangery before heading out in the lush gardens to mark the occasion with some photographs. They were a joy to be around, beaming with love and teasing the camera wherever they went. It was perhaps one of the most enjoyable weddings I’ve been to this year, proving that love comes easy when you have a Ferrero Rocher heart! You can see further images on my facebook page here »

Yet another busy (and very warm!) weekend for the camera began with a first time visit to Carlowrie Castle where family and friends gathered to witness Allyson and Colin tie the knot with a humanist ceremony. It was little surprise that everyone celebrated afterwards with ice cream! Their colourful bridal party, lush wedding cake and a stunning wedding dress complete with subtle pick hues made for plenty of eye candy to admire. The weather stayed true to form all day allowing us out after the wedding breakfast for another lap of the gardens, where the newly weds turned on the style in the soft sunlight. All images shot and edited on Fujicolor Film. Here is a sneak peek of the new Mr and Mrs Walker. You can see further images on my facebook page here »

Alexis & Stewart – Wedding in St Andrews

13.07.2018 Congratulations to Alexis and Stewart who just got married at Forgan’s in St Andrews. Now for something different. Alexis and Stewart eloped from Canada to fulfil their dream of marrying in Scotland and returning to their roots. And they brought all their guests with them! Their big day was romantic, emotional, unconventional and creative with some clever DIY touches. Thanks to a late ceremony time of 5pm, all their photographs were front loaded making for a relaxed day with bags of time. It featured real life moments like a ‘reveal’ at a pre-determined rendezvous spot and a rock ‘n roll stroll around picturesque St Andrews on one of the hottest days of the year. It ended with a walk on the beach at dusk, the last shot taken at 10pm! A true Scottish love story pictured in the wild. You can see further images on my facebook page here »

Gemma & Ruaridh – Wedding at Prestonfield House

10.07.2018 Congratulations to Gemma and Ruaridh who just got married at Prestonfield House in Edinburgh! What a cracking wedding this was, set against the backdrop of one of the sunniest and warmest weekends of the year. The ceremony took place amongst the peacocks at glamourous Prestonfield House in Edinburgh, before everyone headed outside to mark the occasion with a mass group shot and confetti walk. The newly weds took the camera for a tour of the house, painting a portrait of colour and light as they went before joining guests for celebration drinks on the lawn. It was still roasting hot at 8pm, so we went back out to finish what we started and treated the camera with some eye candy just before their first dance. Judging by the suns kisses I’d say the happy couple had a pretty special day! You can see further images on my facebook page here »

19.06.2018 Congratulations to Victoria and Julian who just got married at Howies in Edinburgh! Their truly international affair saw a large German and New Zealand contingent gather to witness the happy couple tie the knot with a humanist ceremony, performed brilliantly by Tim Maguire. In a change of plan, we skipped across the road into the Old Calton Burial Ground for some photographs where our spontanious decision soon paid off. The newly weds just oozed class as we worked our way through the maze of stonework and buildings, teasing the camera as they went. They looked fantastic together, and how gorgeous is that dress?

The blue doors of the courtyard provided a splash of colour for some romance in front of the camera. With so much kissing going on it was probably about time for a Carlsberg we thought!

It all looked wonderfully pretty as the natural canopy of trees kept us sheltered from the elements and provided some beautiful soft light. Their ‘Hoorah’ moment (cover shot) turned out to be the final image and proved a fitting way to celebrate the moment. They smashed it with such confidence it made us all smile.

Family and friends gathered at Currie Kirk to witness the love birds tie the knot with a religious ceremony, before making their way to Balbirnie House for a celebration. There was just enough time to squeeze in some outdoor photographs as the sun sank, but the fading light also offered the perfect opportunity to take this beautiful shot at dusk. Believe it or not, it was captured just before the speeches as guests took their seats in the Ballroom below. Now that’s what I call blue skies!

Fiona & Gavin – Wedding at Ghillie Dhu

13.10.2017 Congratulations to Fiona and Gavin who got married at Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh! A beautiful couple, stunning venue and a great crowd. Not to mention some lovely early October weather for a stroll in the city centre of Edinburgh. And that’s exactly what we did after the newly weds said their vows (‘I Dhu’ at this venue) and found themselves covered in confetti. In fact, we only went across the road where some leafy looking church grounds lay in wait to welcome their smiles. The camera was soon in full swing as onlookers glanced in admiration. Quite a mixture of editing styles in these images, including some specifically shot and edited on film which have colour and contrast just like old fashioned prints. I thought the cool romantic feel was just for them! How gorgoeus do these two lovebirds look together? You can see further images on my facebook page here »

12.09.2017 Congratulations to Claudia and Chantal who just got married at Orocco Pier in South Queensferry! Sunday afternoon brought a bit of a treat for the camera. A small humanist ceremony at Orocco Pier was followed by some wild and windy weather, so imagine my delight when it broke to allow us to venture outdoors. The happy couple were turning heads as they strolled down love lane and onto the pier, armed only with a red umbrella. The magnificent Forth Rail Bridge provided a dramatic backdrop for some artistic romance in front of the camera. It was short and sweet, and very beautiful. How gorgeous do these two love hearts look! You can see further images on my facebook page here »

The sun decided to come out when everyone arrived at Norton House for the reception, so we wasted no time in marking the occasion with celebratory photographs in the beautiful gardens. Sam and Nicola were such fun to be around as the camera followed them around snapping up all the eye candy. Everyone’s favourite couple just couldn’t stop smiling as we headed into the long grass! The potent mixture of sunshine, a fun loving crowd, adorable bridesmaids, gorgeous flowers and an epic first dance made it a brilliant day to photograph.

Kerryanne & Simon – Wedding at Balbirnie House

15.08.2017 Congratulations to Kerryanne and Simon who just got married at Balbirnie House Hotel in Fife! The final wedding of this crazy week took me back to the familiar surroundings of Balbirnie House for yet another stunning wedding. Family and friends were treated to a humanist ceremony performed by Stewart Struthers in the Orangery. Kerryanne and Simon live in Dubai and had been looking forward to a Scottish celebration, which probably explains the large international contingent who had travelled to be guests. Immediately after the ceremony, everyone headed out into the sunshine for a customary group shot on the front steps before socialising on the lawns with canapés. Adam from Abbey Wedding Productions was filming the day and joined us as we headed out for photographs on the swing, armed only with a Saltire and some props. Kerryanne and Simon were just so easy going in front of the camera it didn’t take long to make some memories. You can see further images on my facebook page here »

14.08.2017 Congratulations to Laura and Neil who just got married at Balmule House in Fife! Family and friends gathered to witness the happy couple tie the knot with a humanist ceremony carried out by celebrant Stewart Struthers. The Scottish weather couldn’t make it’s mind up so vows were said and rings exchanged in the marquee, much to everyones relief. But guests were soon enjoying canapés in blazing sunshine as I led the newly weds away for some photographs to mark the occasion. Lee Richardson was by my side filming the day as we explored the rustic grounds in search of some original outdoor style. Just in the nick of time too, as we were soon racing back to the marquee for shelter as the rain came peltering down. Not to be outdone, we were back out again after dinner to finish what we started. Love stops for nothing! You can see further images on my facebook page here »

Believe it or not, I have waited 8 years to witness an outdoor ceremony at Balbirnie and was delighted when it was given the thumbs up.
