Wedding no.5 of the year for me took me back to Glenskirlie Castle, a venue where I think it’s fair to say I’ve been quite a few times now – you know that when the staff give you that “knowing nod” when you first walk in. Of course, knowing a venue well does have its benefits, in that you know all the best places to shoot, where the sun’s going to be to avoid those squinting eye shots and, let’s not speak too loudly, where to go indoors if it rains!

Well guys, let me tell you that rain was certainly no issue on Yvonne & Sasha’s big day as we were blessed with bright sunshine all day long, well, not quite all day… not after dark and all that! And, being a creature of the night :-), I do love the odd dark shot or two, especially at Glenskirlie these days now that they have lights on the trees in the gardens, although fair play to the guys for heading outside after dinner as I can tell you it was freezing at that point, but worth it for the shots I think.

It’s been a while now since I put out an offer, so putting that right today :-). OK guys, so, for the first 5 couples to make a booking with me, I’m offering you full day coverage on your wedding photography package for the same cost as a part day package. So what does this mean…

In a nutshell, it’s a saving of £300 on the usual package cost, so you could get my popular Primo digital package for £1200 instead of the usual £1500.

So, a couple of week’s back, it was great to see Taryn & Ewan again as they stopped by the home office to pick up their wedding album. The guys were married last year with a legal ceremony on Seacliff Beach in East Lothian, followed up by the wedding day itself at the fabulous Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books” with 56 pages and opted for the very eye-catching silver metal polish finish for the cover, complete with anthracite grey binding and a complimentary design box to keep it all in – I’ve tried my best but it’s hard in an image to get across how fabulous this cover looks :-).

For my fourth wedding of the year, I was back at The Vu last month for the second time this year, this time around for Claire & John’s big day :-).

We all hope for reasonably good weather on the big day…picture some sunshine, a calm day, warm(ish) or as warm as it can be in March. But what happens when you don’t get that? Well, in Claire & John’s case, you just roll with the punches!

Cue some typically Scottish wind and rain and a bit of a chill and you’ve got that perfect mix that usually sends most couples scampering indoors for the whole day…but not these guys! They braved the conditions and were determined to get outside for some shots on the jetty…music to my ears, as you know guys I do love a “moody” sky every now and then!

My third wedding of the year at the beginning of March brought with it some, shall I say, unseasonal warmish sunshine for Roseanne & Stuart’s big day. This was also my first visit to the Busby Hotel but, as is usual with any new venue that I shoot at, I’d been on a recce beforehand to scope out the place 🙂 just to make sure I wasn’t caught cold come the day.

Fabulous day all round but I’ve got to make special mention about the dancing come the evening. As most of you know, I stick around for the first 5 dances, just to make sure that I have enough shots to represent that part of the day (it’s always good to end a wedding album with dancing shots as well).
