Wedding Photography at Seamill Hydro | Stephanie & Ross

Day 2 of my last ever wedding “triple header” took me out to the Ayrshire coast, Seamill Hydro to be exact, for my second wedding of three there in as many months. I’ve been shooting weddings for a good few years now and never before a wedding at Seamill…and then three in three months…what is it they say about busses and all that!

From recollection, I’d only met up with Stephanie & Ross for the first time, just a few days before the wedding and we’d had a chat about what they were looking for on the day. A few days down the line and it’s the real thing :-). Good weather on the day (that got even better later on for the beach shots), amazing bride & groom, a fabulous crowd and the whole day in the one location…what more could you ask for.

Of course, I could say that my sixth sense told me that the skies would be better after dinner for the beach shots and that it was all down to careful planning but, the truth of the matter is that we simply ran out of time before dinner for those shots, so had to do them later on…

    Wedding Photography at Brig o’ Doon:
    Alexis & Ben

    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 :-).
