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
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
Lucy and Jonathan get hitched in St Andrews at Rufflets Country House Hotel. Lucy got her wish of an outside ceremony and it was a cracker ! Beautiful day including a nice wee shower of rain, lots of sunshine, some golf and a wee walk into a field in the neighbouring field for some sundowners !Read More
Nothing more amazing than a Home Farm Wedding. Lindsay and Lewis had a scorching day for their wedding in Perthshire on Pittcarmick Estate. The setting was beautiful, they had the ceremony in an old steading, then a marquee for the dinner and dancing - although most people were outside all day enjoying the rare Scottish summer. I also saw one of my favourite things ever at a wedding - 2 of my previous wedding couples and with kids on tow !!

Sophie & Robert.
I photographed Sophie getting ready in the house that she grew up in - I always find this nice to document - even just the small details evoke more personal memories in your photographs. Planet Flowers done a stellar job of the flowers which reminded Sophie of her Grandparents garden. I arrived while make up and hair was in full swing. Hair was by Boom and make up by Lynsey Sheills , Sophie's dress was by Rachel Scott Couture. Mother wore Lois Sturgeon
The guys looked pretty dapper in their Walker Slater suits. They decided on watching the football in the morning rather than getting there early for photos which every man should be allowed to do as he pleases on the morning of his big day ! We got tons of photos of the guys looking sharp throughout the day so all was good.
The Ceremony looked amazing as ever at Mansfield Traquair with all the fairy lights down which looks great in the ceremony shots and as a backdrop for the top table.
Ecosse Classic cars provided the transport for the day and the Bentleys looked great - we went out for a wee drive around after the ceremony to get some shots.
My first outdoor ceremony of the year !
Jen and Richard got Married at Ardanaiseig on the banks of Loch Awe with some close family friends and their 2 dogs. Oscar the older of the dogs was the ring bearer. It was so hot I spotted one of the guests putting sunscreen on her kids and went hand out begging for some sunscreen !!
Such a beautiful setting. I have shot at Ardanaiseig once before in Winter so was nice to see the colours of so many wild flowers in the summer. Such a nice place for a small intimate wedding with all their guests staying the whole weekend. The bluebells were just in peak season so was nice to see everyone appreciating everything Scottish. Jen and Richard looked like they had the best time ever and it was important to get their children and family in lots of shots. Once again we made use of the later evening light for 10 minutes and went out for a run around the grounds. I was working alongside John from Leven Films . Cant wait to head back.Read More
