Laura & Henry's Wedding At Balbirnie House Hotel

I always love returning to Balbirnie House as it is one of those wedding venues that has everything. Beautiful building, always welcoming staff and a stunning interior which includes that gorgeous staircase. Laura & Henry tied the knot in The Orangery at Balbirnie with drinks reception in the main bar. We couldn't have gotten the weather any better for this time of year with only a few spots of rain and the sun even made an apperance.

I met Laura in her room with all the girls as the hair and make-up was all going on. Always a great time to meet everyone and grab a few candid shots before heading downstairs to meet the boys. Henry was in the bar with all the groomsmen and other guests enjoyong a drink while the wedding hour fast approached.

The Orangery was beautifully prepared for Laura to walk down the aisle with her father. The ceremony was expertly conducted by Graham Duff from The Humanist Fellowship Of Scotland culminating in the traditional hand fastening. This is where the phrase "Tying The Knot" comes from.

After the ceremony all the guests headed outside for the big group photograph but then as it was a little chilly, we did the group shots in small bursts to help keep everyone nice and cozy indoors as well as making sure everyone could relax and enjoy the day instead of standing around for photos. It was a great atmospher and a fantastic day.

Huge thanks to Laura & Henry for making me part of their special day at The Balbirnie House Hotel.

Glenbervie House Hotel Wedding Photography - Angela & Joe

Angela and Joe's Glenbervie House Hotel Wedding must be a contender for the most fun wedding of the year. It was also nice to be able to go to a wedding where there are guests there who's weddings I had photographed in the past. Thank you all for the referrals guys, you know who you all are. We started at Angela's parents house for hair and make up. Lucinda was busy in the kitchen working her magic with make-up and my good friend Helen Woodland from City Brides was making sure all the girl's hairstyling was perfect. Amazing Job as always.

It started to chuck it down with rain as we were leaving to head over to Glenbervie where Angela and the girls would finish getting ready. I headed up to Joe's room to capture the boys in the final throws of getting ready. The tone for the rest of the day was set in that room. I knew it was going to be a brilliant wedding once I saw the selfies, the jokes and the hilarity. Just brilliant.

The wedding ceremony itself was so laid back and fun. Angela and Joe got a selfie with the guests all cheering in the background... it looked awesome.

The rest of the day was just fun photographs as the guests chatted and mingled but as it was still raining outside we did the group shots in the drawing room but managed to take the key family and bridal party shots again outside after the meal when the rain had stopped. Only took a few minutes but was well worth it.

I've got to know Angela, Joe and all their friends over the last few years and really mean this when I say, Thank you! Not just to Angela and Joe but to everyone else who was there to make this the best, fun wedding of the year!

Murthly Castle Wedding Photography - Jennifer & James

This was a very special wedding. Jennifer & James had arranged the perfect wedding at probably the best venue I have ever shot at. Murthly castle is just out of this world! The drive to the castle once you turn in from the main road must be around a half a mile at least but then you turn the corner to see this stunning house set in a beautiful walled garden. That's not all though. Beyond the house itself is a pine-tree lined drive to Murthly's own private church. Everywhere you looked there was a photograph just begging to be taken.

The girls were getting ready in the room when James and his family were arriving. Getting the button holes pinned to the lapels properly is never an easy task but thankfully Mum was a dab hand and had the boys all kitted out in no time at all. The guests arrived and made their way down the drive leading to the church to meet James and have a peek inside the beautifully decorated church interior. The Jennifer's brother Daniel arrived and was very keen to show the piper his skills and really looked the part with his very own Glengarry.

Peter knocked on Jennifer's door to escort her to the church and give her away to James. It was an emotional when Peter saw his beautiful daughter in her wedding dress and I don't think there was a dry eye in that room for those few seconds. Yours truly included.

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed drinks and canopies back at the castle then on the lawns and then nipped back to the castle then back out the lawns.... Ok, let me explain. It was like someone had a rain button and was pressing it every time we set foot outside. It didn't matter of course as with such a gorgeous venue we could photograph the families in the drawing room. Luckily, after the meal the rain was gone and it turned into a beautiful evening so we grabbed a few duplicate shots of the family photos we did inside then went for a wander around the stunning gardens with Jennifer and James.

A very special day indeed on so many levels. Jennifer & James... I can't thank you enough for inviting me to your wedding. It was very emotional and we know why but it is a day I'll never forget and am so glad I was a part of. Looking forward to seeing you and your family soon after the new year for a catch up.

All the very best

Derek

Melissa & Steve's Wedding At The New Drumossie, Inverness

I do actually love heading out on little adventures to shoot weddings for clients. The trip to Inverness for Melissa & Steve's wedding was brilliant as I got to travel up past the Drumochter Pass and catch some views of that Iconic scenery. I first met Melissa & Steve at Camperdown Park in Dundee for the Engagement Shoot. I've done a quite a few shoots there now as it's lovely and I don't need to use satnav any more to find it. I knew right away we are in for a brilliant wedding day as both Melissa & Steve just relaxed into the shoot. Boy, was I right! The wedding day was easily one of my favourites of 2014. The New Drumossie Hotel is a perfect wedding venue, Melissa and Steve are just a brilliant couple who could not have been any nicer or accommodating both on the day and the build up. The day started with the bridal preparations and some gorgeous and unusal bouquet designs that looked amazing! Then I headed downstairs to meet the boys and grab some shots of the rest of the guests arriving.

After the ceremony and group photos Melissa & Steve smashed a cake with a big wooden rolling pin sending Maltesers everywhere. I did pinch a couple but aren't they the lighter way to enjoy chocolate?

After the speeches and dinner we took a stroll around the grounds for a few minutes to get some shots of the sky that was starting to form a lovely sunset, which would be perfect some more dramatic wide angled shots. Before we knew it, it was time for the first dance and the party. Time to let your hair down and enjoy the rest of the night.

As I said before, easily one of my favourite weddings from last year. I'll be back in Inverness this year and I can't wait for another wedding like this up there!

Janette & Stuart's Balbirnie House Wedding

Back to one of my favourite venues, Balbirnie House, to photograph Janette & Stuart's wedding. It turned out to be a perfect day with a lovely couple and great guests. I was especially delighted to meet up with previous clients and friends Nerissa & Kenny who's wedding I had shot a couple of years earlier..or was it three years earlier? Time flies I guess. Janette was getting ready in one of the rooms on the ground floor so I decided to go and meet Stuart and the guys as they arrived. I hardly recognised Stuart! He was looking very trim indeed. I'll need to ask him his secret one of these days. I took some shots of Stuart and the groomsmen as they greeted and chatted with newly arriving guests. Janette was almost ready so I took the opportunity to get a few shots of the finishing touches and I have to say, she looked incredible, just incredible.

The ceremony was in the Long Room at Balbirnie which had been beautifully prepared by the staff as always. After the ceremony we headed outside for confetti and group shots followed by bride and groom portraits around Balbirnies beautiful lawns and gardens.

Finally after the wedding breakfast it was time to party and make no mistake, they partied alright. Some awesome dance moves were on show and it was great fun jsut gliding around the edge of the dance floor picking of shots as the guests let their hair down.

Another perfect wedding.
