Around an hour or so from Fort William is a beautiful corner of the West Coast of Scotland, Arisaig. The scenery on the drive alone was enough to keep my eyes from the road maybe a little longer than I should. It was spectacular! Once I reached Arisaig I headed down a little dirt track to the house that Theresa at arranged to have her hair and make-up done at. The "Blue House" is situated virtually on the railway track on a mountainside. The train passes literally a few feet from the front garden. Luckily, it's the "Harry Potter" train that slowly steams it's way past and is quite a sight. After taking photographs of Theresa getting ready, I headed the 20 minutes or so drive back down the road to, Glenfinnan. The church was being renovated and there was scaffolding all over it but this didn't really detract from the occasion. In fact, it kind of summed up the fun of the day as Andy and Theresa were just happy to go with the flow. No formal pictures here. To be honest, I loved that. No group list, no formal shots. Theresa and Andy would just go up to friends or family and put their arms around them for an impromptu photo. It was hilarious....especially Andy's big grin he had on all day.
The reception was to be held at the magnificent Camusdarch Beach. A purpose built marquee for weddings and it could not have been better. I was very kindly asked to join the guests for dinner. Delicious!
After the meal, everyone headed back to the beach for champagne, splashing about in the water and more fun photos. The sun then set on one of the most amazing backdrops, I've been lucky enough to witness...at one of the best weddings I've been lucky enough to attend.
Thanks guys, you truly are brilliant.
