It's a measure of just how far behind my blogging has fallen by the fact that Rosie & Craig's wedding took place at the end of May (the third of my first triple header of the year), and here we are middle of September and I'm only just blogging it. Hey guys, just been so busy out shooting weddings that the blog has taken a back seat. But, we're coming out of the busy season pretty soon so hope to be catching up quickly!

Ah, time. One minute you have loads and the next, well, it seems you have none! And that couldn't be more apt than on your wedding day. And when time runs out, what's the main thing that suffers? Yes folks, you've guessed...it's usually your photography!
So, while I'm not renowned for taking you away for ages on a wedding day for your photographs, we do need to factor in some time, so here's some advice around timings to make sure that you get the kind of images that you see on my website - after all, that's why you booked me :-).
"Dear Blog, please forgive me for all the neglect over the past few weeks, just been so so busy, just haven't had time to update you at all!" So, let's put that right today and, I'm heading back to the end of May and the second of my triple header of weddings back then - Carolyn & David's fantastic wedding day at Carberry Tower, near Edinburgh.
A few weeks ago, I was very excited to be shooting Lynsey & Paul's pre-wedding shoot ahead of their big day next month - not only because I LOVE shooting pre-wedding shoots (and weddings too, of course - in fact, everything really), but also because the chosen location was the National Museum of Flight over in East Lothian, home to one of the Concorde's previously operated by British Airways.
Lynsey & Derek's wedding at Glenbervie House marked the start of a run of three weddings in three days for me. I've always said that I would never shoot more than three on the spin but, hey, come next month, there's the possibility that I may be doing four - better get in training then:-).
