Claire & Steven's Wedding At Eskmills

Claire & Steven were married at Our Lady Of Loretto Church in Mussulburgh before heading to the brilliant Eskmills to start the party! I met with Claire at her mum's house for the bridal prep photographs where I bumped into Stacey Mitchell who was there to do Claire and the bridesamaids make up. Then it was off to church to meet up with the boys before the ceremony. They were certainly up for a good laugh and I knew this was going to be a really fun day. The boys were great and their banter was top drawer. Once we got to Eskmills it was time for the speeches and the wedding breakfast.

Everyone was having a ball and the time seem to flying as the first dance fast approached. The party kicked off pretty much immediatly with some awesome dancefloor shenningans and slick moves.

The Roxburghe Hotel Wedding - Sarah & Sam

Now and then I get asked to cover a wedding at fairly short notice but these are usually small, intimate weddings mid-week at a registry office maybe. Sarah and Sam had planned on their father taking the wedding pictures but decided at the last minute that the he really needed to be there to enjoy himself, (he is the Father of the Bride after all) and the pressure of it not going well would have been epic! What can I say about The Roxburghe Hotel near Kelso? I have photographed a few weddings there now and every one has been just fantastic. Lot's to do with the brilliant couples I get to work with but this venue has it all. They also offer clay pigeon shooting as a warm up for the boys before the wedding while the girls get ready in the morning.

I was only there to photograph from arrival at the church to the reception back at The Roxburghe but everything ran so smoothly from the the race to the Mertoun Parish Church, the race back to the Roxburghe (The beat me!) and the group photos. Fantastic family and a genuinely lovely bride and groom.

I'm so glad they asked me to photograph what is one of my fave weddings of the last year. Thank you both so much for having me along to your brilliant wedding. It was a blast from start to finish.

Balgeddie House Hotel Wedding Photography - Mari & Greg

Mari and Greg were married at Leven Parish Church before heading off to The Balgeddie House Hotel for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Balgeddie House has beautiful gardens to the rear of the property which are fantastic for group photos and bridal portraits. Mari & Greg had a fantastic wedding day, celebrated with all their friends and family. They are a great couple, so accommodating and warm. All day there were fantastic when it came to the photos. I try to stay in the background as much as possible and only stepping in for the posed photographs when needed. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Mari and Greg though. They even arranged for me to sit with the guests for dinner, a lovely touch.

A warm thank you to you both for everything guys.

Loch Lomond & Luss Wedding Photography - Helen & Leigh

The bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. The song says it all really. Well, I took the high road to Loch Lomond and Luss to photograph Helen and Leigh's wedding. I had only met Helen and Leigh a couple of weeks beforehand as they live down Newcastle way but I always feel it's important to meet up beforehand, break the ice if you like. I headed down to Tynemouth on a beautiful late summer evening for the shoot. When the wedding day came, it was great to see them both again. They are a terrific couple and their family were brilliant. They very kindly even had a seat for me at one of the tables a s a guest. Very grateful guys. It was a perfect day and Luss is just so idilic. One of my favourite venues this year, without doubt.
