Dunglass Estate Wedding - Natalie & Craig

Dunglass Estate is fast becoming one of my favourite wedding venues. It has everything you could want for your wedding day. A beautiful consecrated church, a stunning country house for bridal preparations and a huge marquee for the reception. I love it!

When I arrived it looks as though things may run late a little due to a slight hiccup but these things happen and all involved sorted things out very quickly indeed. Before long Natalie was being pampered with only thoughts of walking down the aisle. Craig was busy meeting and greeting guests and the atmosphere at Dunglass was superb. The autumn leaves had turned fully orange and red and the place looked spectacular!

Everyone gathered in the church to await the arrival of the bride. Natalie looked simply breathtaking as she walked down the aisle at her father's side. After the ceremony the newlyweds were met outside by a flurry of confetti as the guests cheered them on.

A perfect autumn wedding with a fantastic couple. Thank you Natalie & Craig!



Glenskirlie Castle Wedding - Kirsty & Phil

Kirsty & Phil's wedding at Glenskirlie Castle was a fun filled but laid back wedding in the autumn. I arrived at Glenskirlie just in time for Emma Motion the MUA to make a start on Kirsty's makeup. I grabbed a few shots of the finishing touches and then headed downstairs to meet up with Phil and the boys.

Phil was downstairs greeting all the guests as they arrived. It was a lovely day so most grabbed a drink and headed for the beautiful gardens to the rear of the venue.

The ceremony was fast approaching when I noticed a guy setting up an electric piano by the doors at the rear of the ceremony room. I was a little concerned as this was one of my spots for getting a few candid shots of the ceremony. It transpired that he was supposed to be at Glenbervie and not Glenskirlie! I've never seen anyone pack up so much gear in so little time in my life. Watching him push that big case into the boot of the car and speed out of the car park like a scene from Starsky & Hutch was hilarious!

After the ceremony and photographs, the bride and groom mixed with friends and family for drinks before gathering in the main hall for speeches. 

It was one of those weddings where you say to yourself, "I can't believe I get to do this for a living!" Thank you Kirsty & Phil!


The Vu Wedding Photography - Danielle & Gary

The Vu has to be central Scotland's most popular venue. They are so popular in fact that there is pretty much a wedding on at The Vu every day of the week and it's easy to see why. It's built with one purpose in mind....weddings! After a few getting ready shots with Danielle and the girls, I headed off to The Vu to meet with Gary and the boys. Hearts were playing Hibs that day and this could have presented a major problem as Gary is a huge Hearts fan. So you may ask, was he late? Not a chance! He met the guys for a drink in a nearby pub to watch the first half which took them neatly to the scheduled arrival time at the venue. Nicely done Gary.

Another fun filled wedding day with no one taking themselves too seriously at all. laughs all the way which I hope you can see from the pictures. Also, huge kudos goes to Danielle's dad who wore the Hearts tartan on the day. He's a huge Hibs fan so to wear your big rivals tartan for your daughters big day is the stuff off legends. Imagine your Celtic mate wearing a Rangers tartan or your Manchester Utd fan best mate wearing a Man City strip for pics with the players? It just doesn't happen but it did that day. Awesome stuff.

It was blowing a gale all day so we did a lot of the family shots inside but thankfully it calmed down a little after the meal so we could head back outside for some great shots with the Waterlilly as a backdrop.

Thank you both very much for choosing me for your Vu wedding photography!

Wedding Photography At The Hub - Abby & Colin

Abby & Colin's wedding at The Hub was definitely one of those, "I don't feel like I'm actually working today" deals. It's a gorgeous building inside and out with Edinburgh's old town right outside the front door. Factor in a beautiful bride a handsome groom, fantastic family and friends and you really can't go wrong. Epic, is how I'd describe it. I met Abby and the girls down at Ju-Pa hairdressing in Leith for all the bridal prep shots before heading along to Colin's parents for a few shots of Colin getting ready for the big day. Then Luke (The videographer) and I headed back to meet Abby and the girls for shots of the shoes, dresses etc.

I love to photograph the guests as they arrive at the venue. All those smiles, laughs and tears really make the story of the day come alive. Abby looked stunning as she emerged from the white taxi at the door of The Hub. We grabbed a few shots before going inside for the wedding ceremony.

Abby and Colin were terrific all day and I can't thank them enough for asking me to be part of their big day. They smiled, laughed and enjoyed every minute of the day which made my job so easy. The ceremony was lovely but there was some laughter too and it all added up to the perfect wedding. We grabbed a few shots of Abby & Colin after the main family shots but it's important that the bride and groom mingle and enjoy the company of their family and friends on their wedding day. I always say, it's your wedding day, not a photoshoot. Summer or Autumn weddings are great in that respect as you can take some more shots after the meal if needed to break things up a little and that's exactly what we did.

The light was fading fast however so I called in a friend of mine who drives a black cab in the city. He was waiting at the door for us so we could get down the Princess Street Gardens and back up to the Royal Mile to get all the shots we wanted before we lost the light. We made it in the nick of time but it was so worth it.

Thank you again Abby and Colin, it was a privilege to be there.
