Glen Doll Wedding Photography with Shelley and Mike

Corrie Fee on Glen Doll is hands down one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland so I thought it was an excellent choice of wedding venue for Mike and Shelley’s wedding ceremony. They are keen mountain climbers who love the outdoors.

Mike and their guests arrived at the Ranger Station on a rather rainy day in May!

A wee walk up the mountain in varying footwear choices ensued to reach beautiful Corrie Fee.

Gary the Humanist set up his (soon to die in the rain) iPad and Shelley and her bridesmaids made their way up the hill for the ceremony.

The rain and wind seemed to get progressively more dramatic as the ceremony went on and I just loved that absolutely no-one cared, they all just happily embraced the drenching! My precious new Sony cameras were experiencing their first Scottish downpour and by this point I’d given up trying to shield them and just let it happen while I lay in the mud!

With the I do’s done, there were a few hugs and congratulations before the guests made their way down the hill.

They newlyweds chucked their brollies away and stayed for a couple of photos before catching up with the guests.

In typical Scottish style, the torrential rain cleared up and half an hour later it was lovely so we got a few more photos at the Ranger Station before heading off.

The reception was held at The Newport Restaurant. All the guests arrived to hear a few speeches before being treated to a great meal overlooking the Tay. The perfect end to an imperfectly perfect day, filled with all the best things: love, laughter, adventure, good food and great people ūüôā Congratulations McWilsons – you rock!

Karen is absolutely brilliant! so lovely and relaxed and really listened to what we wanted for our wedding. also shes the most badass photographer ever who hiked up mountainside in a storm to capture our wedding!🤣¬†the photos are incredible and we are so so happy with them! cannot recommend her enough! thanks for everything Karen xxx

The Rhynd Wedding Photography with Lynsey and Gregor

¬†I was genuinely excited when Lynsey and Gregor booked me for their wedding at the Rhynd.¬† As a wedding Photographer in Fife, it is exciting¬† to find a new DIY wedding venue, especially one in a beautiful setting close to where I grew up….¬† I wasn’t disappointed! The day started with Bridal Prep photos at the girl’s AirBNB in Dundee….¬†You may notice a slight Disney theme here, Lynsey is a huge Disney fan and Gregor even proposed at Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom! ¬†It was perfect sunny weather for their wedding day, the guests were welcomed to Fife with a blue sky ūüôā¬†They had a Humanist ceremony indoors, there was a few tears shed in the barn that day! ¬†Afterwards everyone came outside for a Gin Bar reception in the garden.¬† Lots of congratulations, hugs and laughter followed! ¬†The garden is handy for group photos too, here is the lovely Bridal Party..¬†After the guests enjoyed a gin or two and some group photos, I took Gregor and Lynsey down the road to Tentsmuir Forest for some photos on the beach.¬†This is one of my favourite beaches in the world, it has perfect golden sand and it honestly felt like we were in Spain that day, it was so warm!¬† We had a wee 10 minute shoot before we felt like we might all roast (especially Gregor in his kilt jacket), then we headed back to the guests. ¬†Everyone got to pick a toast drink on their way to hear the speeches.¬†Speeches and dinner were well received!¬†It was a beautiful evening with some golden sunlight so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to grab the newly weds for a quick photo shoot outside before their evening guests arrived.¬† The Rhynd is on a farm and the fields outside have great views.¬†We went back in for dancing, I left them with a full dance floor and I’m sure they had a great evening!¬†Conratulations Mr and Mrs Hunter!

“Honestly Karen they are absolutely fantastic. Gregor and I were in love with every single photo and it even stirred up some tears. You truly are a fantastic photographer and we couldn‚Äôt have asked for a better photographer on the day.”

Fingask Castle Wedding Photography with Lucy and Neil

I love a Fingask Castle wedding, no two are ever the same, so I was happy when Lucy and Neil booked me for their autumn wedding.

For anyone who hasn’t been, Fingask is a castle with the most amazing grounds in the countryside between Dundee and Perth.

The day started with some Bridal Prep photos in the castle.

Meanwhile Neil and the guests were gathering downstairs for the ceremony..

Lucy’s Dad walked her down the aisle to meet her Groom. They had a Humanist ceremony with a bit of Quaich drinking and knot tying.

After the ceremony, we headed outside to the Castle grounds for some photos.

Fingask has THE best backdrop for a big group photo!

While the newlyweds had their wee photo shoot in the garden, the guests enjoyed a few drinks and canapes before walking over to the Marquee for dinner.

The Marquee looked lovely for the guests arriving, lots of time and detail had gone into the decor. They were also the first couple to hire this flower wall…

Speeches and dinner were enjoyed before the guests were treated to some music by the pipe band Lucy’s Dad and Sister play with.

The band then got the dancing started for the evening…

Congratulations Lucy and Neil ūüôā

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 ūüôāMeanwhile 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 ūüôāAndy 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 ūüôāA 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

 

 

Carnoustie Golf Hotel Wedding Photography

Carnoustie Golf Hotel is a great wedding venue, especially on a sunny day like Lisa and Neil had!¬†I love the bridal suite, it is huge and bright so great for getting ready photos! ¬†How cute is Scarlett looking at her Mum’s wedding dress? ūüôā¬†I spotted the Groom and his Groomsmen from the balcony and got a sneaky photos while the girls hid!¬†They had a Humanist ceremony conducted by Gary Smith. ¬†After the ceremony everyone went outside for group photos and drinks in the sunshine… ¬†I got a few photos of the bride and groom on the golf course before everyone headed inside for dinner… ¬†A bit of dancing finished the day nicely!

Forbes of Kingennie wedding photography with Ryan and Karla

Karla and Ryan had a Forbes of Kingennie wedding a few weeks ago. ¬†The day started with some bridal prep photography in one of the Lodges….¬†The men were in a nearby lodge so I popped in to take a few photos on the way to the ceremony building…. ¬†As you can see it was a wet day at Forbes of Kingennie!¬†Karla’s bridesmaids helped get her ready to go while Ryan and his groomsmen welcomed the guests into the ceremony room…¬†The helpful staff were on hand with brollies to help Karla and her bridesmaids stay dry! ¬†I love when couples let their kids get involved in the ceremony ūüôā ¬†They had a Humanist Ceremony conducted by Gary Smith… ¬†The windy, wild rain wasn’t going anywhere so we opted for photos in the cosy shelter of the indoors! ¬†Speeches were held before dinner… ¬†Once the evening guests arrived and the band were ready, I set up some lighting for the first dances….Conrgatulations to all three of you! <3

“Karen did our wedding pictures for us and to say we are delighted is an understatement. We have a three year old son so knew that posing for any length of time would be a challenge and as a result we requested photos that captured the feeling of our day. We are in love with our pictures that show laughter and are honest. Thank you Karen xxx”
