Boturich Castle Wedding

Emily & Stuart

Emily and Stuart had their heart set on an outdoor wedding overlooking Loch Lomond. Boturich castle had everything they wanted from a venue.

On the morning of the wedding emotions were high. Stuarts sister had been very unwell and there was a lot of doubt wether she would make it on their day.
With showers visible across the loch and no sign of Stuarts sister arriving, the chairs for the ceremony all got moved inside the marque to prepare for the ceremony being indoors.
Emily was running a little late getting ready and after 20 minutes the sun came out just in time for Stuarts sister arriving with his much loved little niece.
Staff and friends got together and quickly got all the chairs back outside again just in time for Emily to make her entrance and walk down the isle.

Every thing fell into place after this on their day.  The sun shone and stayed out all day, all the guests enjoyed the views and beautiful ceremony. The children ran around the lawns and Emily and Stuarts dream day came together surrounded by all their loved ones and finished with their guests all dancing the evening away as the sun set over the loch.

It really was a fairytale day from start to finish

Crossbasket Castle Wedding

Sarah and Peter

Sarah & Peter held their wedding at the stunning Crossbasket Castle  and what a day for it!

The sun shone all day, it felt like being abroad it was so lovely and warm. Which was ideal for all of their guests to enjoy mingling outside after the ceremony. The gang of little flower girls and boys made the most of the weather too. With stunning grounds and gardens the kids could run free and there was constant laughter and giggling from them all as they careered up and down the grassy slopes in front of the castle and around the fountain.

Sarah had chosen the perfect dress for the setting, she looked like a modern day princess in her Aline gown from Pronovias. Teamed with a full length veil she had her bridesmaids tearing up at the sight of her. She remained so calm and composed all morning. Peter had his best men and ushers to keep him company in the morning and greeted his guests out in the sunshine. Pete looked a little nervous at the end of the isle waiting on his bride but once Sarah was in sight it was none stop smiling from the pair of them all day.

Their guests had travelled from all over the world for their special day and everyone made the most of the party dancing away until late.

This really was a fairytale wedding from the castle location, the outfits, the weather, to the fact Pete and Sarah are so perfect for each other. Wishing you guys a lifetime of happiness together.

Monachlye Mhor Hotel Wedding // Elopement Scotland // Rory & Sarah

Monachyle Mhor Hotel Wedding  – One of my favourite things about Scotland is out hidden gems of wedding venues, in amongst the breath taking scenery, there are these amazing little venues that suit intimate weddings and elopements. Monachlye Mhor Hotel is one of the finest.

Elopement Scotland…

When Sarah emailed me looking for availability for her elopement I jumped at the chance. I love nothing more that escaping up north with my cameras and capturing elopements. Sarah and Rorys elopement had just two witnesses….well three if you count their imminent little arrival! Sarah was eight months pregnant when they decided to elope and a little sibling for the their daughter was due very soon. When I was eight months pregnant I could basically only wear flip flops and climbing the stairs exhausted me. Sarah is super woman as not only did she arrive looking stunning, she had heels on AND managed to climb up a hill to say her vows. And she didn’t even break a sweat. Once on top of the hill over looking the loch they said their vows and became husband and wife.

This has got to be one of my favourite elopements I have photographed. Purely for the fact Rory and Sarah were so relaxed. The only thing that mattered was they wanted to be married. It was so peaceful in top of the hill watching them say there vows with just the birds and witnesses for company. I felt so incredibly honored to be part of such a special moment. They continued their day with dinner together and over night stay at the hotel to then be joined by their daughter the next day. Massive congratulations Mr & Mrs Kerr. xxx

The Lodge on Loch Goil wedding // Ruby & Luke

Ruby & Luke celebrated with close family and friends in a small intimate wedding at the award winning Lodge on Loch Goil.

Intimate and cosy….

From my initial meeting with Ruby and Luke, I knew they had very much made up their minds what was important to them on their wedding day. They wanted it intimate, cosy and just close friends and family on their day.  The lodge on loch Goil is the ideal wedding venue for this. Hidden away on the banks of loch goil, it feels like you have entered another world. It is a lovely escape away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Ruby had chosen the ideal dress for her day. With a small train and delicate diamante straps teamed with lace panelling, it showed off Rubys figure perfectly. She wanted no fuss and kept everything very subtle. Teaming her stunning Enzoani dress with a small diamante headpiece. In keeping with the calmness of the day, Ruby did her own hair in her signature style and her own makeup which meant there was total peace and quiet and calmness getting ready. Alice their wedding coordinator made sure the day flowed perfectly, with live music on the lawn as Ruby walked down the steps to Luke, to their intimate family meal which had everyone in tears as Luke spoke personally to each family member about what they meant to them. To finish off this beautiful day Ruby surprised Luke by singing to him with an adapted version of Your Song.

It was a beautiful day from start to finish with laughter and tears. I was made to feel so welcome by all of your lovely family and loved being part of your special day. Massive Congrats Ruby & Luke.xxx

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.

Windmill Barn Wedding //

Claire & Rory

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 // 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 Hotel 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. One of my favourite moments of the day was seeing Fays dad see in her dress for the first time. The emotion was all over his face and the excitement in the room was electric. Thanks for braving the cold guys and having me as part of your special day. xxx

Brigodoon House Hotel Wedding 

Gemma & Sean

Brigodoon House Wedding

Gemma and Seans Brigodoon House Hotel Wedding. 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 😉
