On Saturday I spent the day at Kelly and Justeen’s wedding.  We started with Bridal Prep which with two brides, two floors apart in the hotel, was good exercise!  They had a lovely civil ceremony in the hotel followed by a drinks reception and some group photos.

Kelly organised a trip to the nearby Science Centre, Sensation for Justeen, who is a huge Dr Who fan so she could have her photo taken with the Tardis.  The kids at the wedding had a great time and so did we, and we got some great photos too…

Meldrum House with Alison and Gordon

Last Thursday I photographed Gordon and Ali’s wedding at Meldrum House, Oldmeldrum in Aberdeenshire.  This was the first time I have been here, it looked lovely online so I was looking forward to it. I was spoilt for choice for places to take photos and we were lucky enough to have another sunny day.  Ali had put a lot of thought into the details and her colour scheme looked great.  They had a Humanist ceremony followed by a drinks reception outside while we took some photos around the grounds. The ceilidh dancing was in full swing when I left and I’m sure everyone had a great time, here is a selection of photos from their day…

Fingask Castle with Laurie and Bobo

Last Sunday I was at Fingask Castle in Perthshire for Laurie and Bobo’s wedding.  The weather forecast looked grim but thankfully it stayed nice and sunny between the ceremony and meal and we were able to make full use of the lovely gardens that surround the castle. They opted for a Humanist Ceremony followed by drinks in the courtyard while we took some photographs.  I was booked until first dance so I was lucky enough to be treated to a high tea which was excellent, lovely big portions and plenty of cakes to choose from!  The had booked a ceilidh band to kick off the dancing, the dance-floor was full when I left and I’m sure they had a great party to finish the day.  Here is a selection of photos from the day:

Valerie and Shady’s Wedding at Fernie Castle Hotel, Fife

Shady (coolest Groom’s name ever) and Valerie came all the way from Oregon, USA to be married at Fernie Castle in Fife.  Valerie’s family are from Dundee but she grew up in the Netherlands so there was a good mixture of guests from around the globe.  This made the Ceilidh dancing quite amusing later.  The guests were treated to some good Scottish summer weather, the bus from Dundee was diverted past Perth due to high winds on the Tay Bridge and there were a few showers of rain before the wedding casting doubt over whether the ceremony would be outside.  Luckily the sun came out and the wind caused a funny moment during the ceremony where Valerie’s veil hit Shady in the face. The whole day had a lovely friendly atmosphere and I’m sure they had a great party after I left.   I was booked from Bridal Prep until Dancing and had a great second Photographer to help me out so there are lots of images to work on but meanwhile here are some highlights of the day….
