Onwards with blogging the remainder of last year’s weddings and, for my first wedding in September, I was back on my second visit of the year to the Busby Hotel for Lorraine & Paul’s big day.

If you take a look around my website, one of things that I mention a lot is that your wedding day is just that, a “wedding day and not a photo-shoot”, and I make no apologies for that. My aim is to capture the moment, rather than spend the majority of the day fabricating pictures. Of course, I will always do a few of those with a family group shot session and a short bride & groom session, but, for the most part, I’ll just capture your day as it happens, on the look out for all those “moments”.

Just as you close the door on one year, before you know it, another one is upon us and I’m off and running once again shooting a whole host of fabulous weddings and, let’s not forget, the odd pre-wedding shoot…and that is exactly what this year kicked off with, as I made the short trip up to Stirling for Jane & Nicky’s pre-shoot mid January.

I’d done a few shoots before around the castle grounds and it’s a great backdrop to shoot in…all cobbled streets and that and, did I mention, although you may have spotted it already…snow!!! Yep, the white stuff had been around for a day or two giving us that added dimension to the shots…as well as providing a few quirky moments towards the end of the shoot.

Today on the blog, I’m very delighted to be sharing with you guys one of the latest wedding albums to leave the studio…this time around featuring Debbie & Stephen’s fabulous wedding at Tullibole Castle last year.

This one, I am very keen to be sowing you, as not only was it a totally amazing day, but this was also the first of the new Graphistudio “Go Books” that I’d had the honour of pulling together and, as you may have seen from my other pages in this site, I’m now delighted to be including the Go Book as standard with my very popular Primo wedding collection :-).

For their own album, the guys opted for a black binding on the album and also black for the finish of the box, which I think really sets off perfectly against the wedding rings cover design that had been chosen.

When it comes to albums, I do believe that I’m partnered with the best album company in the world, Graphistudio from Italy, used by the majority of top professional wedding photographers worldwide. Check these out…there’s so many ways in which the album can be customised in terms of covers, back & spines, boxes, colours etc, that apparently there are about 4 million different combinations in total!

End of August through September last year was certainly a busy time for me, with around 15 weddings, 3 pre-wedding shoots and all the editing that goes along with it as well, which often takes longer than the shoot itself! Plus, I finally came to the realisation that I probably needed glasses for reading…your arm is only so long when trying to focus on the small text on your iPhone :-).

My first wedding in September (and also the first of another wedding “double header”) took me back once again to The Vu, where I’ve shot more weddings than anywhere else, and there’s always that knowing nod from the staff as you arrive…that’s when you know you’ve almost become part of the furniture.

Nicole & Alan’s big day was blessed with some fabulous weather, as it can often be pretty windy at The Vu, being on such high ground…but no such problems this day…just check out those fabulous blue skies with scattered cloud (my favourite) and also the gorgeous sunset…perfectly timed for just after dinner finished!

target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>weddings from last year and, for my last wedding in August (and also the last of a “three-in-a-row triple header”) I was fairly close to home up in Stirling for Jennifer & Ross’s big day, and what a contrast weather wise from the day before! 24 hours earlier, I’d been dodging the rain but, fast forward a day and I’m dodging the sun!

The ceremony and reception took place at the Albert Halls which I think would be about my third visit there now but, for all the key family group shots and the bride & groom shoot, the guys had arranged for us to all head up to the fabulous Stirling Castle. Honestly, I could literally spend hours here with all the cool spots to shot in but, weddings days being as they are, we kept it short and picked out a few key places to shoot in…perhaps a “Rock the Frock” shoot one day might be on the cards here :-).
