“Arta” Wedding : Megan & Panny

More exploits from this year’s weddings for you today folks and, this time around, I’m delighted muchly to be presenting part two of my inaugural “double header” from back in February. Wedding No.2 of the year took me into Glasgow’s Merchant City, Arta to be exact, for Megan & Panny’s big day. Subscribers to the blog (you know who you are LOL) will recall my first wedding of the year took place at Edinburgh’s Ghillie Dhu, not too dissimilar from Arta funnily enough with its dark, atmospheric, characterful vibe :-). That’ll be flashes on overdrive then … but you guys know I love that!

As is often the case with weddings at Arta, I kicked off across the road at the Fraser Suites where the girls were getting ready. I know I’ve said this before but I always believe you can get a good feel for how the day is going to go just from the bridal prep session alone … and my instincts were about right again – no stresses or strains (none that I could see anyway :-)), just a very relaxed, chilled out day all round, which of course very much suits the way I shoot a wedding.

Given the time of year, a bit chilly and bit drizzly, we’d decided to do all the, shall we say, “slightly” set-up shots indoors, but hey, at Arta that really isn’t a problem, as the place is full of great little spots for shots … and most of you know that I don’t go big on lots of posed shots anyway LOL.

Anyway, no more waffle … on with the pictures to tell the story of the day …

Megan & Panny, thank you very much for choosing me to shoot your amazing wedding day! Here’s a few of my favourite shots which I hope you all like.

Looking for “Documentary” Wedding Photography?

If you’re on the look-out for a wedding photographer (or know someone who is), then you may just like my “ninja style” (a couple’s words, not mine) 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!

My style is very unposed, unfussy and focuses more on documenting your day rather than directing it. Minimal group shots (or even none at all if you prefer) and short bride & groom shoots allow you spend more of the day with the people that matter and have a total blast!

I’m mainly taking bookings now for 2023 and 2024 … but I do now only shoot one wedding per weekend so dates can be very limited during peak times.

Full day coverage collections start at £1800 … but don’t forget my cheeky wee discount where you can save up to £500 :-).

Oh, and please do feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the page, as I do really love to know what you think :-).

Mike :-).
