Wedding Photography at Solsgirth House | Ann-Marie & Grant

Carrying on with my latest quest to get the blogging back on track today and I’m totally delighted to be sharing a few images from Ann-Marie & Grant’s wedding back in June (yes I did say “June”) this year…that’s a measure of how many wedding I still have to blog this year!

The guys were married at the fabulous University of Glasgow Chapel before all heading up to Solsgirth for the reception, a place I know very well and this was to be my second of five weddings there this year alone.

Keep Calm & Pay Just £795! | My Xmas Limited Offer To You

Yes folks, it’s true, for the third year in succession, I’m running my extremely popular “Keep Calm” offer in the run up to Christmas. But, as ever, the offer is limited and will be available to the first five couples only to make a booking. Here’s what you’ll get…

  • wedding day coverage from bridal prep to the start of the wedding breakfast
  • all your images from the day (approx. 500) professionally edited & hosted in an online gallery for viewing
  • all your images presented to you in hi-res format by digital download or USB stick

The cost…just £795 which is a massive saving of £300 on the usual package cost.

Pre-Wedding Shoot in Cumbernauld | Laura & Kevin

So, I guess it’s fair to say that the main wedding season is well behind us now for another year, although I do still have four more weddings to shoot before Santa pays a visit :-) but, with things calming down a touch, I’m taking to the blog to start showing you all the wonderful weddings and pre-wedding shoots that I’ve been doing this year.

Today, I’m very pleased to be sharing a few images from Laura & Kevin’s pre-wedding shoot that we did over at Broadwood Loch and thereabouts. Bit of a misty, murky day weather wise but I actually think that gives a nice feel, especially to the shots in front of the loch. The guys brought their dog along with them as well and, whilst I dare say National Geographic won’t be calling on my door anytime soon, I’m still quite pleased with the shots we got.

Wedding Photography at Bothwell Bridge Hotel | Lauren & Alan’s Wedding Album

It’s been a little while since I posted a new album design on here, so putting that right today, and there’ll be quite a few more over the coming weeks as albums seem to be flying in and out the door just now…the UPS courier is fast becoming one of my best mates!

Lauren & Alan were married at the start of the year at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel, with a short hop up to Chatelherault Country Park as well for their bride & groom shots. For their album, the guys chose a dark blue leather cover with the die cut edge insert, all topped off with a dark blue leather sleeve to store it in. The pages themselves were printed on metallic paper toned down with a satin lamination…in my opinion, a totally gorgeous combination for a very classic finish.

Wedding Photography at Kinkell Byre | Stephanie & Fraser

Well it’s been quite some time since I blogged a wedding, not that I haven’t been busy…in fact, quite the opposite – last weekend I shot my 52nd wedding of the year, making this my busiest yet. So, boys and girls, blogging has had to take a back seat for a while while I’ve been in the midst of the busy wedding season. But (he says with an outpouring of breath), things are quietening down a wee bit now so picking up where I left off.

So, today, I’m very pleased to be featuring some images from Stephanie & Fraser’s wedding at the very wonderful Kinkell Byre in St. Andrew’s back at the start of June. This was my first time here and what a contrast to the usual venues that I shoot at. Google tells me that this was once a collection of farm buildings and I’m not going to argue with that – all full of rustic charm and charachter and what a view overlooking the sea as well :-).
