Wedding no.15 of the year took me back to one of my favourite parts of the country where I’ve shot many weddings now…Loch Lomond, specifically, the Lodge on Loch Lomond for what must be now, let me see, about my fifth wedding there now. Let’s be honest, if you get the weather, and in this country it is a big “if”, the setting is really hard to beat.
So, how happy was I then on Kimberley & Daniel’s big day that the weather totally played ball and gave us some glorious sunshine pretty much all day long, so much so, that we were even able to have an outdoor ceremony :-).
My day started at another venue that I’ve worked at before, Ingliston Country Club, where the girls were getting the bridal prep done in one of the log cabins on site and, after a brief stop to grab a few shots, it was off to Loch Lomond for the rest of the day. At this time of year, when the days are long, I find that it’s actually better to do the bride & groom photo-shoot after dinner, where the sun will be a little lower in the sky and not produce the harsh results that you can sometimes get earlier in the day. Coupled with a little off-camera flash, you an get some quite dramatic results :-).
