"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.

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:-).
Really slap bang in the middle of wedding season at the moment so trying my best to keep the blog updated...and failing badly (usually). Anyway, grumbles aside, today I am very pleased to be sharing with you some images from Nicola & Simon's fantastic day at the wonderful Glenskirlie Castle back in May. I've shot at Glenskirlie many many times now and it's a fabulous venue, both inside and out, and thank goodness for inside as the weather on the day was pretty awful - the pictures tell their own story!
I've never missed a wedding yet through illness, but Alexis & Ben's wedding at the fantastic Brig o' Doon was the closest I've ever come to not making it. 24 hours earlier, I was lying in bed, struck down with some kind of virus and pretty much unable to get up - boy, was I worried! Still, amazing what a good night's sleep and plenty of antibiotics can do - morning of the wedding and, whilst it would be fair to say that I wasn't at the top of my game, I'd recovered sufficiently enough to set off for Ayrshire.
Isn't it true that they say that laughter is the best medicine - well, thank goodness then for Alexis and Ben and their family and friends - what an unbelievable day! Guys, you were all such a pleasure to photograph - hardly any input needed from me at all; you just did your thing and it looked great, allowing me to get some fantastic shots. And all to the backdrop of the stunning Brig o' Doon - always been one of my favourite venues :-).
So as I sit here typing up this blog post, I’m about to enter into the first of my triple headers for this year – yes, that’s three weddings to shoot on three consecutive days, and I have that three times this year…will definitely need a holiday after all those :-). All this makes May my second busiest month of the year – last month was pretty busy too, busy for April anyway and included Melissa & Colin’s fantastic day at Orocco Pier in South Queensferry.
It’s fair to say that I probably find myself in South Queensferry with camera in hand more than any other location – it’s a favourite for couples doing their pre-wedding shoot and, when it comes to weddings, Orocco Pier is fast becoming one of my more popular venues, this being my third wedding here in as many months..and you can see why, with the views over the Forth Bridges and the old town charm of South Queensferry itself with its cobbled streets...love it!
It’s kind of strange but I've actually done some photography with Melissa before – a few years back when I was dabbling around in the world of fashion/portrait photography, she came along with her friend Catrina (her bridesmaid on the day) to do some shots around Callander Park – funny how things turn out sometimes.
