Haining House Wedding : Claire & Frankie

So, yep, I agree, it does seem odd to be talking about “Christmassy” weddings at the start of summer (although looking out the window at all the rain at the moment you wouldn’t think it), but, that’s kind of the way my blogging rolls folks. I shoot the wedding, get a few quick previews up in a few days, then roughly 4-6 weeks before I have all the pictures edited for the guys and only then can I put it in the queue to blog! So, look out for my summer weddings this Christmas then :-).

Claire & Frankie’s wedding at Haining House in Selkirk was to be my first visit there (and only visit to date, although I am back in August)…but you know that I love a new venue! In fact this was the first time I’d ever ventured south to Selkirk full stop but, hey, I’ll travel anywhere to shoot a wedding – heck, I’ve only just come back from a wedding in Northampton..does that make me a “destination wedding photographer” then LOL.

The House itself is set in some really beautiful grounds and, being a winter wedding with the early fading light, we also got the chance to shoot the House “all lit up”, although I will admit that the light on the front door behind the guys is actually one of mine :-). As, usual though, I’ll let the pictures speak from themselves.

Claire & Frankie, thank you very much for choosing me to shoot your fabulous day. Here’s a few of my favourite shots which I hope you all like…PS – best viewed on a desktop.

Please all feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the page, as I love to know what you think…cheers all!

Looking for some “Ninja Style” Wedding Photography?

I love shooting weddings and, for the most part, I adopt a “ninja style” 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! But, I will always make time for those important family group shots and also, a relaxed bride & groom shoot and here, it’s my aim to provide you with some truly amazing pictures…not just your standard stuff :-). To know more about my wedding day  approach to how I shoot weddings, just click here.

I’m mainly taking bookings now for 2021…but I do have a limited number of 2020 dates still available too.

Full day coverage collections start at £1500…but don’t forget my cheeky wee discount where you can save up to £500 :-).

Also, I have an offer on at the moment, limited to just five couples…so hurry – would be a shame to miss out...

Mike :-).
