Blog posts coming thick and fast at the moment after my short sabatical and today I’m very pleased to be sharing some images from Aileen & Scott’s wedding last month at the fantastic Oran Mor in Glasgow. The guys only booked me about a month before the wedding due to a few issues with their existing photographer and, naturally, I’m really pleased they did as this was a fantastic day all round. Beautiful day weather wise so had to make sure I had the old factor 15 on to avoid the customary sunburnt head – still failed badly though.
Big football theme going on with Scott being a huge Motherwell fan and Aileen following Celtic – hope I’ve got that the right way round guys as I know how important these things can be – it’s like someone having me down as an Arsenal supporter!!! Seemed to recall that James McFadden featured quite heavily in the speeches as well – Scott’s favourite player I think for which he took the usual ribbing from the masses. Loved all the football related table decorations and football pitch table plan…now, if only I had thought along those lines as a theme for my own wedding, although not sure it would have got past the gatekeeper (ie the missus).
I love Oran Mor, so much so that I advertise in their brochure :-). The main reception room is just so full of character and colour, plenty of it. That said, it does also make it a bit tricky for photography, especially this day – one minute the sun’s in, then it’s out, then it’s back in again – all casting a range of purples and reds across the room as the sun streams through the stained glass windows – thanks goodness for a touch of Photoshop in the editing phase is all I can say!!! Anyway, I digress – too much technical stuff for one day!
Aileen & Scott, thank you very much for asking me to shoot your wedding day and I hope you like the images. Here’s just a few of my own favourites that I’ve selected for this post.
