Yet another wonderful wedding with two fantastic families. One of those days when you are heading home and you think to yourself. "I love my job!." First stop for Tasha & Josh's wedding was Boots at the Gyle Shopping Centre where Danielle and the rest of the staff did an amazing job on make-up. Tasha was then getting ready for the big day at her Mum & Dad's house in the west of Edinburgh while Josh and the boys were getting suited and booted at the Premier In at Dregorn. It's only a 5 minute dash between the two locations so it was great to be able to get shots of Tasha getting ready and Josh putting on his uniform this special day.
The ceremony was to take place at St Mary's Church in the grounds of Dalmahoy and a huge thank you to Derek the minister for letting me do my little trick of getting the confetti shot, quicky and more importantly in a fun way without holding everyone up. It's a little different from tradition but works really well to avoid that bottle neck at the front door of the church.
Dalmahoy welcomed the guests with champagne and canopes as they at the main house. We grabbed a quick group shot on the feature staircase first before some of the guests checked in for the night. I usually arrange the group shots first but we arranged in advance on this occasion to photograph Tasha & Josh first so by the time we were finished, the guests had all checked in and had some time to enjoy chatting and mingling with other guests. It's important to me that the bride and groom mingle and have the opportunity to enjoy the day they have meticulously planned for over a year too. I always have a schedule of events with me so we had time for some smoozing before starting the family shots.
After dinner Tasha and Josh cut the cake and had their first dance followed quickly by the best Father & Daughter dance I've ever seen. They certainly had us all fooled but what a brilliant laugh it was. You guys can move... seriously!!
Yet another favourite from 2014 and not only a wonderful couple but two brilliant familes too.
