Wedding Photography at Altskeith House | Heather & Chris

My first wedding blog of the year for you today guys, and I’m kicking off with a stormer – Heather & Chris’s wedding at the very fabulous Altskeith House that I shot as the first of a “double header” weekend just before Christmas. Although I’d driven by it many times, this was my first wedding at Altskeith House and what a setting it is :-), right on the banks of Loch Ard – in my opinion, it would look amazing whatever the weather. Call me a mysterious type but, I’m quite drawn to settings such as this when there’s just a hint of “moodiness” in the sky…and I think we got that.

I knew one of the reasons the guys booked me was for the images I create using off camera flash, and, being a winter wedding, I got plenty of opportunities to “play”! And a little light rain in the air didn’t spoil things too much either. Big shout out to Chris as well who waded knee deep into the loch to carry the girls back and forward or the shots at the boat house :-).

    Stirlingshire Wedding Photography:
    Suzanne & Rick at Port of Menteith Church

    Back on wedding photography duty today and I’m in the beautiful Stirlingshire countryside near Loch Ard to kick things off. Suzanne & Rick actually live in London and, until yesterday, we’d never actually met, having booked me on the back of a few emails and phone calls. But, needless to say, I’m really glad they did because this is a great location to shoot in. There’s also a real cosmopolitan feel about today as, if I recall correctly, Suzanne spent some time growing up in France, so we have a number of family and guests from across the Channel here with us.
