Weddings at The Macdonald Marine Hotel are always special and Lorne and Mark's was no different. A perfect day in one of the east of Scotland's premier venues. I met Lorne and the girls in her room while Jenni Muir was busy applying Lorne's makeup. I have worked with Jenni before and I think she's brilliant. I headed down to meet the Mark and the lads for some photos on the lawn before heading back up to Lorne's room to follow her down to the ceremony.
The wedding Ceremony was beautiful and expertly conducted by Ivan Middleton of the Humanist Society Scotland. After the ceremony we got all the family shots and then very bravely, Lorne and Mark followed me down to the beach for some romantic beach wedding photos. Well, that was the idea. Just as we got there a gale whipped up and before you knew it we were all struggling stay on our feet! It was hilarious but we still got a few good shots and agreed to head back out for a few minutes after the meal to wait for the hurricane to subside.
During the meal we were treated to spectacle that I don't really want to give away too much detail about as the whole point of it is that it's a big surprise. So for future brides to be, I'll say nothing, except.....I was actually astounded by what I witnessed. I can't give any higher praise. I never ever use the word astounded. So there you go.
Lorne and Mark are a special couple, they really are. They made me feel so welcome and a huge thanks to everyone involved and that has to include Jackie who had me in stitches all day!
