Perth Small Wedding Photography with Akos and Andrea

I love a bit of small wedding Photography and this was a tiny one, with only 7 guests! I spend just two hours in Perth, taking photos of Andrea and Akos. We were so lucky with the weather, it was warm and sunny so luckily not too much a shock to the system for Andrea’s family who had come from sunny Hungary for the occasion!

The ceremony was held in the Old Council Chambers at Perth Registrars. It is a beautiful old building as you can see here. Andrea walked up the aisle with her Dad to meet her Groom….

They had decided to keep the ceremony short as Andrea’s parents don’t speak English so we weren’t there long but it was a lovely ceremony.

After the ceremony, everyone came out into the Scottish sunshine for a wander along the riverside to the North Inch park for some photos.

Perth has lots of old buildings and great scenery for wedding photography so we had a few stops along the way.

We took a few family photos at the North Inch before heading to the Royal George Hotel where they were having their wedding reception.

The George Hotel is another lovely old building with stained glass windows. I captured a few shots of everyone relaxing and enjoying a celebratory drinks before I left them to enjoy themselves. I was only with them for two hours which is perfect to capture the best parts of a tiny wedding like this.

Cheers Andrea and Akos, enjoy married life!

Small Wedding at Perth Registry Office with Laura and James

 I love a tiny wee wedding and they don’t come any smaller than this! Laura and James emailed me just a few ago.  They had planned a very small (two friends as witnesses), low key, Monday morning Registry office wedding in Perth before their baby is born.  No wedding cars, flowers or fuss and no Photos.  Thankfully they had a change of heart about the latter and decided a few photos for the family to see might be nice so they booked me for just an hour and this is what happened….. James and Laura exchanged vows in front of their two witnesses. The words in a small ceremony always feel very powerful, I think it is the lack of noise and distraction in the room but it was a moving experience and the congratulations that followed were sweet….  After the ceremony, this party of four (five if you include the baby bump) planned to go to Malmaison in Dundee for lunch so we decided to have a fairly casual photo shoot on the walk back to the car park! The Registry Office in Perth is next to the River which makes a great backdrop for photos.  We were lucky enough to get sunshine in January too!  There are some beautiful old buildings in Perth (that is the Courthouse in the photo above!) so we wandered along, having a chat and a few stops on the way.  The atmosphere was calm and cheerful as we said or goodbyes. I got some lovely feedback from them too:

“The whole day was just as we wanted it to go. We can’t believe how great they turned out, such a fantastic set of photos! We can’t thank you enough for capturing our special day so perfectly.”

Congratulations to Laura and James x

Are you are planning your own small wedding and think professional photos will be too much fuss or expensive?  Please remember that when the day is over, photos are your only tangible memories, without them the moments of love and happiness will fade with time.  The photography doesn’t have to be posed and it doesn’t have to last all day.  All the photos you see here were captured in one hour!
