For my 28th wedding of the year, I was out and about at a new venue for me, Boclair House just outside Glasgow. I love shooting at new places…I know there is a theory sometimes that couples will choose a photographer who is familiar with a venue and sure, there is some merit in that but there’s also, I think, a downside as well in that being so familiar with a venue means that just do the same thing every time, just with different couples.
Shooting at a new venue brings with it a new perspective on things, perhaps doing things that haven’t been done before and therefore often you’re getting shots that are unique. Of course, any good photographer will have done a recce at a new venue, just to familiarise themselves with the new surroundings, and I’m no different in that respect…it’s just good preparations.
So, what of Angela & Mark’s day at Boclair House? Well, weather wise it was just about spot on…a touch overcast (which is always good for photography) and then a little touch of rain later in the day just providing an interesting slant on the back-lit pictures that we took in the bandstand. And what a fabulous crowd…enough said really…I’ll let the pictures below tell the story :-).
Angela & Mark, thank you very much for choosing me to shoot your big day…here’s a few of my favourite shots from the day which I hope you all like…PS – best viewed on a desktop (click on any thumbnail to view L A R G E!).
Please all feel free to leave a comment at the bottom, as I love to know what you think…cheers all!
Looking for some “Ninja Style” Wedding Photography?
I love shooting weddings and, for the most part, I adopt a “ninja style” low key approach to the day! Most couples tell me they didn’t even notice me for the majority of the day and that suits me…it is your wedding day after all, not a photo-shoot! But, I will always make time for those important family group shots and also, a relaxed bride & groom shoot and here, it’s my aim to provide you with some truly amazing pictures…not just your standard stuff :-).
