“The Cruin” Wedding : Ashleigh & Thomas

Mid June, I was back at one of my favourite venues, the fabulous Cruin, on the banks of Loch Lomond, where I was honoured to be shooting Ashleigh & Thomas’ big day :-). I’m a big fan of all the Loch Lomond venues in truth but the guys at The Cruin always make sure I’m well fed, so it’s a winner for me LOL…oh, and there’s the views of course too!

So, a few firsts for me then…first time I’d shot an outdoor ceremony at The Cruin – I’d come close a few times before but the threat of rain (or actual rain) on those occasions was just too risky to go outside. First time I’d shot a couple with a Harley-Davidson and first time I’d been on a boat on a wedding day – the latter taking the wedding party (and myself) out on the Loch for a wee bit to get a few unique shots :-).

So a pretty full on day (heck, we even managed to get on the jetty for a few shots too), but thoroughly enjoyable and plenty to shoot…just the way I like it :-). The guys were kind enough to write me a little something as well which went just like this…

Mike managed to capture parts of our day that we would have otherwise forgotten about or missed. He made our day truly magical from our first contact with Mike until beyond the wedding, he made us feel special as well as relaxing us both through the day. If we ever get the chance to relive our wedding day again, we will definitely be choosing Mike. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us both.

Ashleigh & Thomas, 2nd October 2019

Ashleigh & Thomas, 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.

Looking for some “Ninja Style” 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! But, I will always make time for a very small number of family group shots and also, a short bride & groom shoot and here, it’s my aim to provide you with some truly fabulous pictures :-). 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 :-).

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 :-).
