Probably the hottest wedding of the year ... This wedding was planned to perfection. The ceremony was at Dalmeny Church and the reception was at Carlowrie Castle on an extremely hot day in May. 2nd Shooter Fiona HigginsRead More
Sophie & Li wanted some shots around Edinburgh before they go back to China for their own wedding. We had an amazing time wandering around a few favourite spots that they both love.Read More
Russell & Claire got Married on what can only be described as the first scorching hot day of the year. My first time shooting at Myres Castle and loved every minute of it ! Claire and Russell own Edinburgh Catering Company so are in the wedding industry which is maybe why they nailed their own wedding. What an amazing day and as I was leaving in the wee hours looked like the fun went on for a long time after ! Party people. Congrats Russell and ClaireRead More
Thought it was time to blog at least one of the weddings I have shot in 2017. It is March already and February was a busy month for weddings and thought i would blog this little gem. Got to love a home farm wedding. Sarah & John got married at St Mary's Church at Dalmahoy and the family farm with a marquee in their grandparents garden. It went a little bit like this...Read More
Rachel + Greg
Winter weddings are usually amazing light or very flat to photograph in - Luckily for Rachel and Greg the sun came out - and we did not need to venture far to find the good light. Right out the back of One Devonshire Gardens provided a great setting for the couple shots. Such a nice laid back couple who were pretty nervous in the morning, but as soon as they saw each other - you could not wipe the smile off their faces all day.Read More
Carley + Fraz
My good friend and occasional second shooter Carley from Carley Buick Photography asked myself and Julie from Julie Tinton Photography to cover the photography duties at her own wedding. While Julie was shooting Carley and the girls in the morning - I met Fraz and the guys at The Raeburn in Stockbridge. Always pretty nerve-racking photographing a photographers wedding. It was a perfect Autumnal day and I enjoyed every minute from start to finish. Here is a wee sneak peek ! Check out all the venders below.

Debbie + Daniel
My first time shooting Fonab Castle Hotel in Pitlochry and it was perfect. The view from the Castle is breathtaking and especially slap bang in middle of Autumn. The ceremony was at Dunked Cathedral. It was pretty cold on the day and a wee bit rainy but after the ceremony Debbie and Dan took me to the other side of River Tummel and we got some great shots. Debbie was a trooper and did not mind the walk in the forest which many a bride would not have attempted at that time of year. My second shooter was Carly Buick from Carley Buick Photography.

Sylvain + Lara
A beautiful intimate ceremony at Archerfield House by Tim Maguire who always amazes me with his talents and done half the humanist ceremony in French for Sylvains family. Love the low winter light at this time of year especially in the rooms where Lara was getting ready in Archerfield.Read More
Kate and Paul from Virginia US, celebrated their marriage at Carberry Tower which looked amazingly Autumnal. October is my new favourite month to shoot weddings in. This year we have seen some amazing colours and every couple has lucked out with the most amazing weather! Here are a few moments from their day.Read More
Alana Macfarlane + Luke Kempner
When a DJ and a Comedian gets Married you know it is gonna be a good one. These guys smashed it from start to finish. Kinkell Byre was the perfect setting - It's not every wedding morning I get to chase a bunch of half naked girls through a hayfield but rather that than the kilt flashing guys on the beach - thanks to Carley (my second shooter) for this.
Tim Maguire performed a beautiful, funny and moving ceremony in an amazing space of the byre with thousands of fairy lights. Alana's dog Pongo even gave his blessing right on cue.
Alana and Luke hired a VW camper to hit the beach straight after the ceremony. The weather was perfect and we found a great wee beach not too far away. Shoes abandoned I just snapped away as they ran around the beach for a bit. Eileen from Sugar8 films came along with a classic old School super 8 cine camera - I cannot wait to see her footage.
After getting back to the drinks reception we shot a few groups next to the big red barn doors which was a lot of fun. During the speeches I usually hide behind my camera to hide any emotions and this was no exception. As the meal was finishing the light was perfect and I was pleasantly surprised when they decided (coaxed) to ditch the coffee and head out for some sundowner shots. We found the highest point outside looking down onto St Andrews and got some great romantic shots - however Luke was doing some serious Lion King impressions at the time.
Was great to see Mercedes and Agnes from Scarlet and Bell who kept everything on time and they set up the venue beautifully.
Such an amazing day with cracking banter -even made me change over from Radio 6 and listen to Alana and her twin sister aka The Mac Twins on Virgin Radio which just happens to play every Saturday usually around the time I am driving home from a Wedding.Read More
