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 too.
Today’s ceremony’s taking place at the Port of Menteith church, about 9 miles east of Loch Ard. I have it on good authority (Google 🙂 )that the church dates back to 1878. It’s also surrounded by a graveyard – yes, it did briefly cross my mind to do some shots in there…but that moment passed quickly! Unfortunately, I’m only permitted to photograph the ceremony from the balcony at the rear of the church, but it still gives me the opportunity to capture all the goings on, albeit from up high and far back (thank goodness for a 70-200mm zoom).
With the ceremony done, I head off with the guys for a few bride & groom shots on the banks of the Lake of Menteith, before heading back up the road to Loch Ard, where the reception is taking place in the village hall, overlooking Loch Ard – so, an obvious choice for our group shots then!
Guys, thank you for choosing me to photograph your wedding day. Here’s just a small selection of some of my favourite images from the day. The full set can be found in your online gallery (password required).
