The Class Of 2018

31.12.2018 Where does the time go folks! The year of 2018 just seemed to fly by don’t you think? Well I have evidence of a memorable year for those who were lucky enough to fall in love and get married. The adventures of a wedding photographer means travelling to far flung places, meeting lots of happy couples and encountering much eye candy. It also means I can prove the world is still spinning and love is what makes it go round. So here are some of my favourite memories of the year which you can see on my facebook page here »

Elspeth & Ian – Wedding at Aikwood Tower

01.10.2018 Congratulations to Elspeth and Ian who just got married at Aikwood Tower in Selkirk! My second American wedding in a row last week took the camera back to Aikwood Tower in the borders, where guests had travelled across the pond to gather and witness a rare Scottish commodity. No not the whisky, but an outdoor ceremony! Elspeth and Ian said their vows under blue skies before sneaking off into the secluded gardens for a few photographs to mark the occasion. They were soon beaming and cracking jokes as the camera sensed their happiness, something that seemed a fitting theme for the day. Amongst their delight at the size of the cake cutting sword and selection of malt whiskies, there was plenty of eye candy to enjoy thanks to the talents of Get Knotted Weddings and Ginger Snap Events.

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 »

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 »
