Things are getting busy again guys as you would expect at this time of year…I’m 18 weddings in already! So, trying to squeeze in a new wedding on the blog is a wee bit tricky but, here we go for this week…

Today, delighted to be featuring another wedding from the tail end of last year (November) that I spent with Cherie & Jamie and my first ever visit to the Rosslea Hall Hotel near to Hellensburgh…Rhu to be exact for those that like the detail…that’ll be me as well :-).

It’s always good to be able to shoot a few different things come the wedding day so it was great that the guys had booked a horse and carriage ride just for a few minutes to themselves straight after the ceremony…sometimes, you just need that time to calm down for a wee while – makes for a few interesting shots as well…

I have a another new album design to share with you today guys – this time around featuring Deborah & Ross’s big day over at the fabulous Ingliston Country Club,  back in June last year.

For me, the album is very much the culmination of everything that I do, and absolutely remains the best way to truly tell the story of your day, so naturally I’m always really pleased when couples decide to add an album to their wedding collection. 

For their album, the guys went for the classic “Original Wedding Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The album itself featured a silver satin metal cover complete with their names overprinted in raised varnish. This was all topped off with a white/ice grey design box in cloud leather.

The 50 pages of loveliness were finished off with my favourite paper – metallic with satin lamination :-).

I have a new album design to share with you lovely people today – this time around featuring Leanne & Sam’s fabulous day at one of my local venues, The Parsonage,  back in August last year.

For me, the album is very much the culmination of everything that I do, and absolutely remains the best way to truly tell the story of your day, so naturally I’m always really pleased when couples decide to add an album to their wedding collection. 

For their album, the guys went for the very stylish “Young Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The album itself featured the popular “crystal glance” cover with a black leather binding. The box, also in black leather, was highlighted in my own scroll design in raised and varnished green to complement the album cover image.

The 60 pages of loveliness were finished off using Canon’s high definition lustre paper :-).

It’s always good to hear back from couples upon receiving their album so it was great when Leanne dropped me a few lines as follows…

“We have just received our wedding album today, and I have tears in my eyes! Mike photographed our wedding in August 2017, we booked after seeing other reviews on Facebook and an informal meeting at his studio. Mike is an absolute dream. From start to finish, the communication has been faultless. We had a small wedding, but Mike still managed to be slick and at times went unnoticed (in a good way!!!). We decided against a videographer and I had doubts whether a photographer could capture the day without one, and I’m happy to say that his photos tell a story, flow very naturally, and I couldn’t be happier with them. We would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you so much Mike, and we both wish you the very best for the future.

Mr & Mrs Ross”

Onwards today with blogging some new weddings, although when I say “new”, I mean “new” to the blog, but hardly “new”, as in I only shot the wedding recently – if only…but I am trying hard to get the blogging more up to date. But hey, it matters not too much when they’re all fabulous weddings to share with you and today, I’m totally delighted to be featuring another cracker…Kara & Louis’ big day at The Caves in Edinburgh’s Old Town.

For anyone that’s never been to The Caves, let me tell you that it is a truly unique venue, built as it is around some of the many caves that run through this part of town…but I guess the clue’s in the title LOL.

Whilst being very unique, The Caves is actually a tricky place to shoot – it’s dark (as you would expect) which requires for the most part using my own lighting to make sure that we can see everyone but…on the flip side, you don’t want to be going and lighting it up like Blackpool Illuminations, as it’s important to keep the dark ambience, so it’s very much a balancing act!

Delighted muchly to be sharing another album design with you guys today – this time around featuring Stephanie & Ross’s fabulous day at Seamill Hydro back in 2016.

The guys went for the very stylish “Young Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The album itself featured the popular “crystal glance” cover with a white leather binding. The box, also in white leather, was highlighted in my own scroll design in raised and varnished grey.

The 60 pages of loveliness were finished off in my favourite paper…metallic with satin lamination :-).
