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 :-).
