So, you know how it is guys; sometimes, I get booked up by couples well in advance of their wedding, a couple of years, sometimes three, once even four. And then, other times, I get a fairly late in the day booking when you’re not expecting it, such was the case with Aimee & Joff, just a couple of months notice I seem to recall and with a lot of that initially being done by phone call/email. But, the thing is, I’m so so glad the guys booked me as this was one fantastic day all round.
The wedding took place at the end of August so I know I must be catching up with my backlog of work being that I’m able to post to the blog within the month of that day 🙂 – give me another 10 days and I’ll be right up straight again! Dunblane Hydro was the venue for the day, where I’ve shot a few times before and, as usual, I kicked off spending some time with Aimee and the girls shooting the bridal prep and detail shots. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find a good spot to do the formal shots of the girls pre-ceremony, as I’m conscious we can’t go wandering too far for fear of bumping into the groom, and the room they had been given to get ready in was a bit on the small side. So, out into the corridor we went, using just a window light behind me, and I don’t think they turned out too bad, although I’ll let you be the best judge of that.
Of course, had to get some shots of Joff as well, or Jonathon as I was calling him on the day (which actually is his real name). It’s only when you realise that everyone’s calling him Joff that you’re the one in the wrong so, Jonathon, or Joff, I apologise :-). Still, not quite as bad as the registrar calling you the new Mr & Mrs Wilson, instead of the new Mr & Mrs Lawson, I guess!
Aimee & Joff, a big thank you for asking me to shoot your wedding day and for going along with all my ideas on the day – loved your input too, especially the idea of you and the wedding party charging down the hill – that was all set up to end in disaster if it went wrong!
