Cambo and Forgans St Andrews Wedding with Laura and Daniel

Quote

 I have been lucky enough to shoot some fantastic wedding weddings this year, Laura and Daniel’s St Andrews wedding day is definitely up there, you’ll soon see why! Their wedding was centred around their favourite place: St Andrews 🙂 The ceremony was at Cambo Estate, I was so excited to photograph a wedding here, the gardens are beautiful and so well kept.   Laura was walked down the garden by her Mum to meet Daniel.  Their ceremony was conducted by the lovely Humanist, Dorothy Nowak.  After the ceremony everyone walked over to Cambo House for drinks and part one of the best wedding feast ever!  That’s right! All Fife’s best cuisine… Fish and Chips served by Anstruther Fish Bar followed by a fudge doughnut from Fisher and Donaldson  We grabbed the opportunity to have a wee photo shoot around the gardens….  Daniel and Laura made an early exit to go and visit some of their favourite haunts in St Andrews…  We started at St Andrews harbour, had a stop at The Scores (the spot where Daniel had proposed to Laura) and down to their favourite beach, the West Sands.  How cute is this VW camper from View from the slow lane  The wedding reception was held at Forgans St Andrews.  It is a very cool restaurant in the centre of town, perfect for a small wedding like this.  Speeches, some tasty food and a bit of ceilidh dancing followed… Congratulations Laura and Daniel, I hope your marriage is just as great as your wedding day!

“Thanks so much for our photos – we absolutely love them! They’ve captured our day perfectly, we both look at them pretty much daily and we’re not sure we’ll ever stop looking at them” – Laura and Daniel

The Cow Shed Crail Wedding with Andy and Amy

The Cow Shed in Crail is a wedding venue I’ve been counting down the days to visiting ever since Amy and Andy booked it last year… you’ll soon see why!  I had actually already taken wedding photos of Amy about 7 years ago (not for a real wedding, she modelled for some wedding photos at her Mum’s work when she was a teenager) so I was really happy when she booked me for her real wedding to Andy (the same tall boy she was going out with when we first met!).The day started off with some bridal prep photos at Amy and Andy’s house, where the girl’s were having their hair and make up done.There was a wee bit of emotion when Amy came downstairs in her beautiful wedding dress!  I think Lilly approved of her Mum’s dress choice too 🙂Meanwhile my second Photographer Lynne was with Andy and his Groomsmen over at his family’s farm before they all headed to the Cow Shed…The bridesmaids arrived in style in this classic VW Camper-van.  I absolutely loved these sequin dresses, they look great in the photos….The Cow Shed is a DIY venue and Amy and Andy had decorated absolutely every corner with cosy blankets, home made jam favours, chalkboard signs, lighting and even a kid’s tent to keep the little ones amused during the day.  Andy is a fishmonger so I especially liked this sign haha….The Camper-van came back with Amy and her Dad and it was time to get married!  Lilly and her favourite bunny were first to enter the ceremony room….First look *gulp*It was a tight fit at the front of the room but I was able to peek between the best men to catch some smiley faces from the families 🙂Andy and Amy had a Humanist ceremony with a few reading and a bit of knot tying,  this was their first kiss as Mr & Mrs…I’d guess by their faces they are all happy to be married 🙂A bit of Confetti throwing and photos outside followed the ceremony!The Cow Shed is surrounded by fields and Amy was up for swapping her Jimmy Choo’s for wellies for the photos…After the photos it was time to eat!  The marquee had just as much amazing decor as the rest of the venue with another VW camper-van as a bar amongst the other details…There was just a small matter of getting the kids off the bouncy castle first…Some lovely speeches before the meal and evening guests arrived.  Soon it was time for the party to start!Amy and Andy were the second cutest couple on the dance-floor that night!Everyone was up giving the ceilidh dancing a go when I left and it was all going well!Congratulations Amy and Andy xxx

 

 

Forgan’s St Andrews Wedding with Natalie and Dunc

BACK TO MAIN WEBSITE  I had my first 2017 wedding last week and what a way to kick off the year!  This was a special wedding for me as it was my gorgeous school friend Natalie marrying her High School sweetheart Duncan 🙂 They have a great modern love story as they met and dated at school, lost touch, met again through Facebook a few years ago and now are happily married! I started the day by meeting the boys in The Rule where they were having a few drinks before walking along to the Registry Office where the ceremony was being held.  The Registry office is part of St Andrews Town Hall, a lovely old building in the centre of town.  Natalie arrived by car with her Dad and Bridal Party including some very cute flower girls….  Natalie’s son had the important job of Ring bearer and Dunc’s daughter read a very cute story to all of the guests….  We gathered all the guests for a group photo before they left for the reception at Forgans. We had a quick stop along the way for a photos outside Madras College, the school we all went to back when Natalie and Duncan were first dating <3  This was the first time I’d photographed at Forgans and was really impressed at how well it works as a wedding venue.  It has a unique style that looks great in photos and a relaxed, warm atmosphere.   I loved all of the details around the venue!  After the speeches a Caricaturist drew all of the guests during the meal…..  Once the evening guests had arrived, the dancing started.  They had a Ceilidh band to teach their English guests some traditional Scottish dances ….  Congratulations to all four of you!  Wishing you a very happy future and lots of love xxx
