Wedding Photography at House for an Art Lover:
Hannah & Robert

You know, I’m quite getting in to this blogging images straight after the wedding thing – much better than last year when I blogged about 6 months afterwards!!! And, the great thing is, everything is still fresh in the mind, so far far easier to put down into words – let’s hope I can keep it going when I start to get 2 or 3 weddings a week :-).

So, a couple of days ago, I was back at the fantastic House for an Art Lover for the wedding of Hannah & Robert. And here’s the thing…never trust the weather forecast – for days, it had been forecasting clear blue skies, even on the morning itself. And, what do we get…showers all day long :-(. Still, at least there’s plenty of good spots indoors at House for an Art Lover, although we did get outside on and off.

All round, a fantastic day and all topped off (for me anyway) with some memorable first few dances – I can honestly say that’s the first time I’ve ever heard Frank Zappa (I think it was anyway) played at a wedding and then, of course, there was flower girl Erin’s magical solo dance to “Let It Go” :-). Loved the New York theme to the day as well!

Hannah & Robert, a big thank you for asking me to shoot your wedding. Here’s a few of my favourite images which I hope you like.

Wedding Photography at Ingliston Country Club:
Kirsty & Bryan’s Wedding Album

Lots of albums coming and going from the home studio at the moment so thought it was about time I started blogging a few of the designs. So, first up, I’m delighted to share a few images from Kirsty & Bryan’s album that the guys collected from me recently.

The wedding took place last August at the fantastic Ingliston Country Club and, from recollection, it was the first dry (well, almost dry) Saturday that we’d had in weeks :-). It was also the first of my three “wasp sting” weddings – yes folks, I got stung three weddings on the bounce!

Kirsty & Bryan went for a square 35cm x 35cm album from my suppliers, the wonderful Graphistudio. They opted for the every popular “crystal glance” cover to which I added my own custom made floral design around the selected image, all topped off with white leather back and spine and housed in a complementary white design box.

Here’s a few shots of the album itself followed by the full set of page proofs – hope you like.

Wedding Photography at Bothwell Bridge Hotel:
Lauren & Alan

So guys, second half of last year, my blogging fell badly by the wayside – not that I wasn’t busy! Far from it – 56 weddings in one year constituted my busiest year yet. And that, I’m afraid, was the main reason for falling behind with the old blog – just too too busy to blog!

So, this year, I’m absolutely determined to put that right and, in a change of tact, I’ll now be blogging a few images (albeit slightly less than before) from each wedding and pre-wedding shoot, just a few days after the event takes place. And I’m kicking off with Lauren and Alan’s wedding that I shot only three days ago at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel.

As well as the hotel itself, the guys had booked the fabulous Chatelherault Country Park for their key bride & groom shots. We’d had a dusting of snow a few days before and there was still enough of the stuff kicking around to provide a very wintry feel to the pictures, which I love :-).

So, here we go with wedding no.1 of the year – here’s some of my early favourites from the day. Lauren & Alan – a big thank you for booking me and I hope you like these previews.

Wedding Photography at Culcreuch Castle:
Josie & Kenny

You know, it’ a measure of just how far behind I am with blogging, that I still have 23 weddings from this year that I need to publish after this one. Still, at least with the main wedding season now pretty much over for this year, the old blog may indeed receive some attention :-).

Today, I’m very pleased to take you back to July, yes July, on a beautiful sunny day (where have those gone) when I shot Josie & Kenny’s wedding at the wonderful Culcreuch Castle in Fintry where, by chance, I will be again tomorrow (or some day in the past depending on when you read this). The day started at Culcreuch for the bridal prep but I then headed off to St. Jude’s in Glasgow for the ceremony and, although photography was not permitted for a large part of the ceremony, we got some great reportage shots outside before heading back to Culcreuch for the main family group shots and the main bride & groom pictures.

I love shooting at Culcreuch, tucked away as it is seemingly in the middle of nowhere :-). Tree lined driveways, a lake, old buildings and even a forest – more places in fact than you actually have time to shoot in…but that’s a good thing!

Josie & Kenny – a big big thank you for asking me to photograph your wedding day – here’s just a few of my own personal favourite images from the day which I hope you like.

Wedding Photography at Solsgirth House:
Frankee & Andrew

So, it’s been ages since I put up a new blog post. Such is the measure of things, that today I’m featuring Frankee & Andrew’s wedding from the end of June; yes folks, that’ll be JUNE! Of course, I blame all the weddings I’ve been shooting of late, plus editing, plus album design, plus all those other things that go with running a business. So, on a mission as they say to get all my blogging up to date…starting now.

Frankee and Andrew’s wedding was the first that I shot following my break in Tenerife this year, so no excuses for not being ready and raring to go. Guys, a big thank you for asking me to be your wedding photographer. Absolutely loved shooting your big day and here’s a few of my personal favourites.
