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 🙂 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

Fasque Castle Wedding

Fasque Castle has always been on my wedding venue wish list so I was excited when Shawn and Stuart booked me to photograph their day.  The castle and it’s grounds are pretty impressive…. The Castle interior is just as impressive too! I arrived to find a very chilled out bridal party having a laugh while they had their Make up done. The boys were just as relaxed, enjoying a dram of Whiskey in the Library. What a photogenic room!  I loved Shawn’s hair, she was the coolest of brides!  I also wish all rooms I do Bridal Prep in looked as good as this one haha! I think her Dad was impressed too <3   It rained heavily all day pretty much non-stop so there are very few outdoor shots but I love a bit of puddle reflection in my photos!  After the ceremony the guests gathered for a drinks reception …. I took the Bride and Groom for a short photo shoot around the beautiful Castle…  We got some outside photos….. with a bit of shelter!  There were so many small details around the Castle, I loved the colour scheme that Shawn and Stewart picked 🙂 Some group photos on the stairs before speeches and dinner…. The happy couple made a grand entrance to kick off the evening reception!

Congratulations Stuart & Shawn!

I got a lovely email when they received their photos as well:

Thank you again, you did a fantastic job we really love our photos ❤

 

Ballathie House Hotel Wedding in Perthshire with Ruth and Robin

Ballathie House Hotel is lovely place, an old country house on a huge estate with nice bright rooms and cosy fires a great choice of venue for Ruth and Robin’s wedding.  I arrived to see some impressive cars owned by Robin and his friends’ but even more impressive was this cake stand filled with Tunnocks goodies!      The guests all met and caught up in the hall before they were ushered inside for the ceremony, then Ruth made her entrance looking gorgeous in her bespoke dress 🙂  The big smiles from the bride and groom say it all 🙂  After the ceremony everyone enjoyed a celebration drink while I kept one eye on the window waiting on the rain going off!  It stopped for about 5 minutes and I just managed to get this group shot before the downpour!  Luckily we had use of the bright ceremony room for a few more group photos and for everyone to socialise in while I got some natural shots. Congratulations to you both <3

“The photos are great and really reflect the relaxing and enjoyable time we were all having”

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 🙂  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”
