Duck Bay Marina Wedding : Stacy & Murray

My last wedding of October last year took me to a completely new venue for me (which doesn’t happen much these days now), namely, the Corinthian Club in the heart of Glasgow, for Abby & Paul’s big day. And what a stunning setting – I mean, just look at those lights for starters :-).

Of course, you know guys that my shooting style is very much based on staying in the background (“ninja” like :-)), capturing the moment etc etc, rather than a ton of awkward posed shots, false camera smiles, taking the bride & groom away for ages and so on…and that very much suited the mood of the day…one hell of a party with family and friends!

But, you know me, we did manage to sneak in a very brief couple shoot straight after dinner, making use of the incredible Boutique Champagne Bar – what a backdrop :-).

Pollok House Wedding : Caroline & Kenneth’s Wedding Album

It’s been a while since I posted up a new album design for you guys, so putting that right today and delighted to be featuring Caroline & Kenneth’s album from their wedding at Pollok House last year.

For me, the wedding album is very much the culmination of everything that I do, and absolutely remains the best way to truly tell the story of the day.

For their album, the guys chose the very gorgeous “Young Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The design was kept very minimalist with an all black finish for both the album, box and ribbon in the lab’s “touch” material. To offset this and add a touch of individuality to the design, their names and wedding date was added to the covers and also an outline design of the tepees at Pollok House where the reception took place, using the lab’s customisation programme, which comes as standard with all my album collections. This was raised up from the cover and varnished ensuring that, although subtle, it stood out from the cover – looked fabulous when I saw it :-).

Melville Castle Wedding : April & Adam

We all need a break from the “day to day” every now and then, and I’m literally just back from a cheeky week in Cyprus before we head into the main wedding season :-). First up though, I thought I’d share with you lovely people another wedding from the back end of last year, October to be precise.

April & Adam’s big day at the fabulous Melville Castle was to be part one of yet another wedding “double header” (part two to follow later this week folks). There was a time when I used to shoot three, sometimes even four, weddings on consecutive days…these days though, I keep it at just two maximum just to ensure that I’m not burnt out and running on empty by the time it comes to the final wedding LOL – yep, apart from the break for dinner, you’re pretty much on your feet for about 10 hours non stop on a wedding day!

I’ve got to be honest, April & Adam’s day was just a joy to shoot from start to finish, with one of the nicest couples I’ve come across in the (almost) 400 weddings that I’ve shot now. As usual, I stayed pretty much in the background for the majority of the day (as I like to do), just “popping up” occasionally for the group shots and a couple of short bride & groom shoots before and after dinner.
