Wedding Photography at Broomhall Castle | Claire & Mark

Second blog post of the day and, this time, I’m picking up again on this year’s weddings and heading back to the start of June to feature some images from Claire & Mark’s big day.

The guys were married at Broomhall Castle, near Stirling, where I’d never shot before but, as the saying goes, there’s a first time for everything. Slightly shorter day for me this time around as well, as I was only required to shoot up until the speeches, so a little earlier home for once.

Pre-Wedding Shoot in South Queensferry | Sarah & David

Yep, that time of year when my blogging starts to fall every so slightly behind so, this week, I’m making a determined effort to get 2 or 3 new posts up and running for you lovely people, kicking off today with this pre-wedding shoot that we did only last week with Sarah & David down in South Queensferry. Haven’t done a pre-wed shoot here for quite a while now, although I was here for a wedding recently.

Great location – a harbour, the famous bridges (including the partly built new road crossing), a beach, quirky cobbled streets and old buildings…just tons of options…in fact, I’m surprised that more couples don’t choose to come here for their shoot – wait and see, I’ll be inundated with requests now :-).

Wedding Photography at Dumfries House | Gemma & Gavin

My last wedding in May saw me back at Dumfries House for the first time in, let me think, well, quite a long time really. I’d only been here once before and that was only for the ceremony so, in many ways, it was all new to me, to an extent. My day kicked off in Kilmarnock with Gemma and the girls for a few bridal prep shots…nothing staged, all documentary, before heading off on the short trip to St. Joseph’s for a few quick shots with Gavin and the guys. Then back to the house before heading back to the church for the ceremony…never let it be said that I don’t put in the miles :-).

Pre-Wedding Shoot at Stirling University | Heather & Chris

I seem to have been at Stirling University quite a lot of late and, each time it’s for a pre-wedding shoot. Granted, it’s probably not an obvious choice for a shoot but, drive past the main university buildings and there’s some really gorgeous locations to play around with – derelict old buildings, woods, a lake etc etc…I could go on (but I won’t).

Heather & Chris had originally decided on another location for the shoot but, having seen one of y previus efforts at the Uni on my blog, decided to switch, and we were blessed with some great weather as well…bonus.

Wedding Photography at House For An Art Lover | Angela & Frank

The end of May saw my second visit of the year to the wonderful setting of House For An Art Lover for the wedding of Angela & Frank. I love shooting at this place – just has so much to offer in terms of great outdoor locations and (dare I say), quirky little touches indoors, it being a Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed building.

As usual, my day started with Angela & the girls for the bridal prep and I’ve always felt that the tone of the day can often be set right from that point onwards…and I think I was right. Looking back at these pictures now, there just seems so many images of, well…laughing, and that began from minute one – what a fantastic day!
