My first August wedding this year took me off on my third visit in as many months to the fabulous Dunblane Hydro for Ashleigh & Peter’s wedding. Now, I have this theory that you can often tell how the day’s going to pan out by the “vibe” (if that’s the right word) during the bridal prep session that I always start the day off with. It’s always a great opportunity too to meet (as well as the bride who I would usually already have met before), the bridemaids and bride’s parents, plus anyone else who happens to be around as well. So, was I right? Of course :-). Great time shooting the bridal prep and that certainly carried on throughout the day.
Before heading to the Hydro, the cermony took place at the Holy Cross Parish Church in Croy and, if memory serves me right (and I am writing this over two months after the wedding), it was just a touch breezy up on the hill – great for veil shots though :-). Of course, during the ceremony, I’m very much just an “observer” (and picture taker) but there’s always plenty of great moments to observe and shoot, as you’ll see below.
Having shot quite a few weddings now at Dunblane Hydro, I think I know my way around pretty well and, with the weather playing ball, it was great to get outside and do some shots on the tree lined drive…the shot of the guys walking up the drive and Ashleigh hitching up the dress will always now be one of my firm favourites…by the way, I didn’t direct that…it was just one of those “moments” that I totally love,,,and very grateful to capture.
Ashleigh & Peter, a big thank you for choosing me to shoot your fantastic day. Here’s just a few of my own favourites which I hope you like – click on any image to enlarge.
