Louise and Duncan were married at Dalhousie Castle near Edinburgh on the 22nd of April. I loved how personal their wedding was – Louise wore her mother’s wedding dress which had been altered to suit her, and our lovely mutual friend Natasha once again created the beautiful flower displays and bouquets. Amy the make-up artist wrote a blog about the creation of Louise’s dress which you can see here. Here are a selection of images from their day.
Rachael and Rory were married at the beautiful Baxter Park Pavillion followed by their reception at Forbes of Kingennie, both in Dundee. These locations were a dream to photograph, especially the pond and wooden boathouse of Forbes. Rachael and Rory were one of the most relaxed couples I have photographed, they spent almost the whole day laughing and joking which is the best way to spend your wedding I think!
Their wedding was featured on Boho Weddings, you can see it here: Boho Wedding Blog
Hannah and Ali chose the beautiful backdrop of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh for their wedding reception at Prestonfield House Hotel, which followed their ceremony held in St Leonard’s Parish Church in their hometown of Dunfermline. Here are some of my favourite pictures from the day.
Floristry by my talented friend Natasha Bell!
I know this space has been very quiet and empty so far, I have lots of new things to share from the past couple of months but have been so busy with editing and other work I have neglected this blog and all other social media for a while to give myself a break and a chance to focus on the important stuff. I wanted to share a couple of things today, the first one is the new wooden USBs and boxes which I am using to present photographs, it took me a long time to find the exact ones I wanted but eventually I did, I hope you like them as much as I do! I love natural materials and they just look and feel so much nicer than CD’s.
I also wanted to share a few images from Gillian and Edward’s wedding which I photographed at the start of March. It was a typical Scottish rainy day which meant we couldn’t shoot outside much, but we found some nice sheltered and indoors spots to make up for it.
Thats all for just now, just wanted to post an update – will be back with lots of new photos in the next few weeks!
2013 has been the busiest year since I started shooting weddings. I have had the privilege of capturing the most beautiful days with some amazing people. I have photographed weddings for close friends, and made friends with strangers through being their wedding photographer. I have photographed the happiest days of peoples lives, and also some heart-wrenching and bittersweet moments. It has been an incredible journey and I have learnt so much in the past twelve months about why I photograph weddings and how it can be so much more than just taking pictures of an event, sometimes it is freezing little moments of the present so that in the future people can see them and really feel what it was like to be there, and sometimes it is capturing something that is barely tangible – an expression or an atmosphere, so that it can be remembered and cherished forever. Here are some of my favourite photos from the weddings I have shot this year.
