Edinburgh city centre wedding – All weddings are fun! I have laughed and sometimes shed a little tear at all of the wedding I have shot. But what I will always remember about Robyn and Marks special day was the fact I laughed so much my face ached! Iv seen all sorts of entertainment and wedding favours but I think theirs has been my all time favourite. Each guest had a kazoo, and in a box on each table was a choice of songs. Each table had to pick a song to learn and then play it for the rest of the room. I will never forget making my way back through the hotel lobby after moving some of my kit and hearing what sounded like 1000 ducks! Walking into a room with over 120 kazoos going off at the same time all playing different songs was the funniest thing I have ever heard/seen. Everyone put so much effort in and we even had some singers really going for it.

This fun and laughter was a theme throughout their day. Even during their wedding vows the pair were in fits of laughter and it continued into the evening. With the game of throne touches, hilarious best men speech and cake made by gran, these two made their day so personal from start to finish.

I loved shooting you wedding Mr & Mrs Lane and wishing you all the luck in the future.

Claire & Rory // Windmill Barn Wedding

This beautiful Windmill Barn wedding took place on the hottest weekend of the year so far. Claire & Rory said there vows outside on the easter weekend in the glorious sunshine in front of family and close friends. As the guests arrived at the relaxed setting of windmill barn they could catch sight of glimmering treasure hidden in the walls and dotted around the grounds. This was down to Claire and Rory who had organised a lovely easter egg hunt for their guests. Everywhere I went I caught site of little easter eggs hidden in the funniest of places.

Claire and Rorys big day was calm and relaxed from the start which seemed to match them as a couple perfectly. Claire got ready at her family home with her bridesmaids, mum and dad and flower girls all dotted between rooms it was amazingly calm and quiet for the morning of a wedding. This atmosphere flowed through the rest of the day.  From Claires choice in gorgeous gown by designer Charlie Brear. With its tassles and soft silhouette it looked elegant and understated, teamed with a full length veil and delicate flowers in her hair by Emma Scott, Claire looked every inch the relaxed and stylish bride.

Sunshine to sparklers…

Windmill Barn was all set for the ceremony to be held outside in the sunshine. With all the guests sitting out enjoying the sun and Rory and his best man sporting shades as he waited for Claire. Games and easter egg hunts followed the ceremony which then led onto the beautifully styled reception. The tables where filled with glasswear decorated in fairylights made by Claire. Claires sister had drawn detailed pictures of locations that where special to the couple. All these details made for a welcoming and cosy atmosphere to celebrate the evening away.

As the sun went down on their amazing day, guests where still dancing around the pond, eating home made treats and showering the couple in light with sparklers.

Thank you for letting me be part of your beautiful day and massive congratulations Mr & Mrs Young! xxx

p.s special thanks to Claire and Alan at Windmill Barn for being so welcoming and friendly, their customer service adds to what already is a fantastic wedding location. xxx

Rosslea Hall Hotel Wedding

 

Rosslea Hall Wedding Rhu // Fay & James

Fay & James

“Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”

Such an emotional day with lots of tears at this Rosslea Hall Wedding. Fay and Jimmys wedding was a cosy small family filled wedding with lots of personal touches. Set in beautiful Rhu at The Rosslea Hall Hotel these two said their own written vows to each other in front of a small selection of people and there was not a dry eye in the house. Thanks for braving the cold guys and having me as part of your special day. xxx

Brigodoon House Hotel Wedding 

Gemma & Sean

Such a stunning day, with warm autumn colours setting the backdrop for Gemma & Seans wedding day. From singers in the church, the best groomsmen speech ever (and he was too young to even buy a drink at the bar!) a team of bridesmaids on hand and in the centre of it these two who could not keep their eyes of each other.

Funniest part of the day was the little flower girl happily munching away on sweets on the front row throughout the service then pirouetting in front of everyone, wish I had the confidence 🙂
Set in the beautiful surroundings of Brigodoon which is the birth place of the famous scottish poet Robert burns. Gemma and Sean celebrated with all their loved ones at the Brigodoon House hotel and we photographed them on the famous bridge (Auld Brig) which is the setting for Robert Burns poem Tam O Shanter. With the gardens speckled with autumn colours it made for a beautiful backdrop to a beautiful day.

Wishing you a future of happiness together. Congratulations Mr & Mrs McAuliffe.

Ardgowan Estate Wedding Photographer

Cassie & Scott

Ardgowan Estate Wedding Photographer – When Cassie first emailed me at 2am in the morning saying “please allow me to recognize your photography as inspirational art”  my first thought was it was a friend having a laugh, second thought was if this lovely lady is for real then I WILL shoot her wedding!

Turns out Cassie was infact very real. The reason for the early hours email was that she lives in the states with her fiancé Scott. I was incredibly flattered when she said she had been though loads of websites looking for a photographer and wanted to book me  🙂 .

They had chosen the beautiful Ardgowan Estate as their wedding venue. They planned to travel to Scotland to visit me and the venue after seeing it online. We had a great time on their first visit over. After some lunch together we travelled up to Glencoe for an engagement shoot which you can see here . We spent the time laughing and learning about their family. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them which made me all the more excited for their wedding day.

Twelve months later I was making my way to Ardgowan estate to meet them all for Cassie and Scotts big day! Ardgowan Estate is a beautiful venue only one 1hr drive from Glasgow and I love everything about it. From the ruins, the stunning house, the fantastic grounds and Adrain is wonderful to work with. It is one of my favourite venues and a gem of a place hidden away in the county side.

Family had travelled from all over the world for their big day and the weather even decided to behave so as a result the vows were held outside (there was a slight shower but the sun continued to break through). Thank you Cassie & Scott for letting me be a part of your fairytale day. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph some absolutely incredible weddings .Incredible, because they were full of fun, smiles, laughs and love. Here’s one of them.

La Kaiser Photoshoot // Isle of Skye

Part 1 // Isle of Skye fairytale wedding photoshoot

Isle of Skye Fairytale wedding photoshoot – Exploring new places and collaborating with other creatives is my favorite thing to do but rarely have time these days. So when Chicago based jewelry company La Kaiser got in touch last year to say they where keen for me to shoot some of their pieces in Scottish landscapes I jumped at the chance. I have shot all over Scotland but for this shoot I  wanted a really dramatic and rugged landscape. My friend Vicky had not long returned from the Isle of Skye and raved about it so we packed up our kit and headed up there just in time to catch some snow capped mountains and get blown away by wind!

La Kaiser collections feature beautifully designed pieces with moonstone, diamonds and precious gems. All set in Rose gold, yellow gold and silver which can be stacked together to create your own look. Each piece is beautifully designed and delicate with intricate detail with a modern twist.

To take a look at the whole collection then visit La Kaiser. Be warned, you will want them all 😉

Katie & Jamies Winter wedding at The Cruin, Loch Lomond

Snow peaked mountains, clear skies and fairy lights overlooking one of Scotland most famous Lochs. Its hard to picture a more beautiful setting to get married. And this is exactly where Katie & Jamie decided to say their vows.

I had the pleasure of meeting Katie and Jamie a few months previous. Their couple shoot took place down on the beach over looking Arran. They where so easy to photograph, so at ease with any directions I gave them and so comfortable with each other I knew photographing their day was going to be a joy.

The welcoming feeling on the day was amazing, the whole wedding party were incredibly calm despite having an army of little ones to get ready. Dressed in a fishtail lace gown with full length lace edge veil, Katie walked down the isle on the arm of her very proud dad who could not hide his pride and delight all day with his permanent smile. Jamie was greeted at the top of the isle by high fives from the tiny paige boys and grins from the flower girls. With the backdrop of the snow capped mountains behind them they said their vows with a small audience of close friends and family.

The partying continued well into the evening. Even managing to find time for some sparkler fun outside after the sun set. Flanked by flower girls with skeleton face paints (the face painter must have laughed at those requests from pink lace dressed flowergirls) and their family and friends the atmosphere was fantastic as lights and noise lit up the side of the Loch.

The whole day was a wonderful family affair with lots of little flower girls and paige boys running around. The energy levels and smiles never stopped. Jamie & Katie are two peas in a pod. When with one another they give off such an aura of calmness and this seemed to flow through to the guests and the day.

Thank you so much for booking me to shoot your gorgeous wedding. It was a pleasure from start to finish and wishing you guys all the happiness together.

BAad, Barras Art and Design wedding Photographer

// Ciara & Ross -Fairy Woodland Wedding

 

BAad Barras Art & Design wedding Photographer -This was the second time I had visited BAad in Glasgows east end. The first time was for a festival and I was intrigued to see how it would look as a wedding venue. I was unaware the venue hosted weddings until Ciara and Ross contacted me wanting to book for their day. Upon arrival the venue had been transformed into a fairytale wedding venue. With the wonderful light streaming through the ceiling mixed with Ciara vision of a fairy woodland theme of ivy, flowers, candles and antlers the venue looked breathtaking.

Ross and Ciara chose this fabulous industrial venue after a last minute cancellation. They filled it with the most gorgeous decoration, going with a ‘Fairy Woodland’ theme, mixing in foliage, apples, antlers and a whole garland of glitter feathers.  They organised their dream day in just two months! However getting friends and family to help make their perfect wedding day happen was no problem as they had some fantastic contacts.

Ciara’s stylish dress had a hollywood glamour look to it. It was designed and made by the talented Wendy at Flossy & Dossy. The go to woman in Glasgow for anyone looking for something unique and stylish.

Ross & Ciara had a real vision of what they wanted from their photographs and I enjoyed shooting out of my comfort zone for the afternoo., I am so used to shooting out in the country or highlands that my first thought was where was I going to take the couple shots in the famous Barras market. Ciara was keen to feature the market in the photos, it was great fun wandering around this location looking at it in a completely different light.

2017 Highlights

 

2017 Highlights

Romantic wedding photographer Scotland

Finally! Its only taken me 4 weeks to get round to this! My 2017 highlights. It was so hard choosing these as 2017 was better than I could have ever imagined. Shooting couples in Scotland, England, Paris and even Thailand, I had the most amazing year and met such fantastic people. From barn weddings to beaches, Castles to city centres, its been one beautiful wedding after another. And to fill the time between these I have been lucky enough to shoot some of the cutest babies in Scotland from newborns to cake smashes!

We also managed to get involved with some charity work with Reservoir Sprogs baby and toddler event raising money for the romanian appeal and also Loch Lomond rescue boats.

All my couples, families and babies that I have photographed have been wonderful. I loved putting this together and seeing all these faces again on my screen. Iv cried tears of joy listening to vows and speeches, sweated in tropical heat, been booted out the Louvre 😉 stood in amongst groups of sparklers and danced with families in the dark, chased tinys around locations, traipsed around the highlands, had christmas baubles lobbed at my head by toddlers in my studio to name a few and I cant wait to see what 2018 will bring…its already set to be a good one 😉

Claire & Ryan, Leasowe Castle

Leasowe Castle Wedding Photographer // Claire & Ryan

Claire & Ryan

I met Claire on my first day moving into the halls of residence at University. Like me she was loud and full of chat so we bonded immediately. 13 fun filled years later we are still close friends and whenever I think of any fun memories of my twenties she is usually in them. From being a fantastic flatmate (one of the small number of people I can live with although she will talk through every program) to a work companion, my partner in crime and generally my soulmate throughout my uni days I remember thinking if I wasn’t going to marry my husband then Claire was my next choice! She’s been my bridesmaid, flatmate, rock and one of my best friends for the past 13 years so when she got in touch to say she was engaged I was over the moon.

She met Ryan though her work and I could not have dreamt up a more perfect partner for her, he adores her and they are the ideal pairing, he’s the calm to her feistiness, good humored, kind, always puts her first and makes it very clear that she is his Queen. I never thought I would find anyone good enough for Claire but when I met Ryan for the first time I remember thinking, yep, he’s the one!

I was so incredibly honoured when Ryan got in touch secretly to ask if I would shoot the wedding. Yet again evidence of how much he thinks of Claire as it was a lovely thought that it would be a surprise for her that I would take her pictures on her special day.

The venue had to be fit for a queen and what better one that Leasowe castle, with its striking turrets overlooking the sea this venue had it all. Claire choose a beautiful lace gown by Dorothy Rose Bridal which showed of her figure perfectly. Teamed with a diamanté belt detail to show off her tiny waist she looked every inch the glowing bride. The groom looked equally good in his blue suit from Moss bros which was finished off with a soft pink rose corsage to match the bridesmaids colors.

The day was perfect, it rained all week but on the day of their wedding the sun shone all day and mixed with all the laughter and excitement from all the guests it made for an amazing day. I had a brilliant time and loved getting to catch up with Claire, her mum and dad, Ryan and all their friends and family.

Wishing the new Mr & Mrs Hamilton all the luck and happiness in married life together.xxx
