One of my resolutions for the New Year really should be to keep on top of my blogging as I seem to have fallen way way behind. And, to prove my point, here I am today at the start of January blogging Emma & Andrew’s wedding from last November…yes, November, and the start of November to boot, so over two months ago. So, that’ll be 100 lines for me and a stint in the corner…must try harder going forward.
Anyway, enough of beating myself up…to the matter in hand. Emma & Andrew were married at the magnificent Dalhousie Castle, just south of Edinburgh. We’d also done the guys pre-wedding shoot there a few weeks before and had talked that day about the outdoor shots that we were looking to get come the wedding day. Sadly, lady luck was not on our side with the weather, and it rained pretty much all day, rendering any shots outside a no go until very late in the day after dark. Fortunately, Dalhousie has such character inside as well as out that we still had plenty of great spots for photography :-).
One of the things Dalhousie is famous for is the delivery of the rings during the ceremony by an owl. But, as any photographer who has shot here will know, flash is not permitted whilst the owl is in flight, which is understandable. So, that’ll be a darkish room with no flash allowed and a fast moving target – probably a photographer’s worst nightmare! Thank goodness for the low light capabilities of cameras these days that’s all I can say – not sure a shot like this could have been captured about ten years ago based on the technology of the day.
Emma & Andrew – a big thank you for choosing me to photograph your fantastic day. I look forward to finalising your album for you and, meantime, here’s just a few of my favourite images from the day which I hope you like.
Please do leave a comment or two at the bottom of the post as it’s always very much appreciated. Plus, what would be really fantastic, is a “Like” on my Facebook page as it’s always great to get new people on board.
