Hogmany 2013! 9am on pretty cold and damp day in Scotland. What's new huh? The driech day was brightened up by two people about to take their vows. Marianne & Jonathan's smiles brightened up the day like two rays of sunshine! What a great time both families had on this very special of days. The Old Blacksmith's Shop is famous the world over. Over the years thousands of couples have eloped to the south west of Scotland to tie the knot over the Blacksmith's Anvil. I arrived at around 8:15am to get some shots of Jonathan getting ready before meeting up with Marianne and she prepared to make the short walk across the road to the ceremony venue.
The ceremony itself was simple but with a air of romance that you just can't get anywhere else. This place is so unique. We then headed outside so I get get some shots of the family getting blown away by the wind. I did manage to get a few family photos in before everyone did their Mary Poppins impressions and floated off into the blue yonder.
Finally we headed back to the hotel for a few more shots before we said our goodbyes. Thank you both, so much, for inviting me along to be a part of this amazing morning in Gretna.
