One of the things we love about being full-time photographers is the community of like minded and talented photographers we’ve come to know and admire. And despite being in our 13th year of full time photography, we’re always excited to discover new and interesting ideas that help us improve on and add to our repertoire. Read More →
We were thrilled to see the wedding of Claire & Craig Beattie being featured in the latest edition of The Scottish Wedding Directory. We had such a great time with Claire & Craig and their families. And a little bit (!) of rain wasn’t going to stop them having the time of their lives. Pick up the April edition of SWD magazine to read their full story.
Photographing Leanne & Steve’s wedding was a huge joy for us. We’ve known Leanne for a few years now as we photographed the weddings of her two sisters, Valerie (at Hopetoun House) and Fiona (at Mansfield Traquair) where she was bridesmaid to both. This time the roles were reversed.
Jackie was with the girls whilst they prepared. Capturing the fun, anticipation, the emotions and the little details makes this one of Jackie’s favourite parts of a wedding day.
We love photographing winter weddings. And Denise & Lewis’s wedding day was extra special as we’d photographed Denise’s sister Joanne’s wedding a couple of years previously at Hopetoun House, so we knew what a wonderful time everyone would have.
Once again, we were honoured to be invited back to capture another chapter in a family’s history. This was one of four occasions in the past year where we photographed the wedding of the sister of our previous brides. That makes us feel very happy! And this time it meant we were able to meet Denise’s little nephew James again…..
We were delighted to be asked to photograph Susan & Phil’s wedding day and were particularly looking forward to it as we knew so many of the people there – we’d previously photographed the weddings of two of Susan’s sisters. Such a huge compliment to be asked to cover this wonderful day too. On this occasion, the ceremony and reception were held at Hopetoun House. A venue we know particularly well as our studio is based there! Read More →
What better way to re-start our blog than with Alex & Daniel’s wedding. You can see our previous post of their Pre-Wedding Shoot here.We were particularly delighted to be asked to photograph Alex & Daniel’s wedding as we’d photographed Alex’s twin sister’s wedding a few years previously. This was one of four weddings we’ve photographed recently where we were invited back to photograph the sister of a previous bride – in two instances it was the 3rd sister. Alex & Daniel were married on the beautiful Isle of Bute at the stunning Mount Stuart. In typical west of Scotland style, the weather was “mixed” – mainly a mix of rain & wind! But no matter as Mount Stuart has its own white marble chapel that can be reached without venturing outside.
We’ve always offered our clients a pre-wedding shoot (also known as an engagement or e-shoot). It’s a great, fun way for us to get to know our couples and for couples to enjoy the experience of being photographed together. It’ll often be the first time they’ve done this, so naturally some start a little nervous and unsure of what to expect – but by the end of the short session, they’re loving it.
Jen & James’ wedding at Hopetoun House was a colourful Scottish & Welsh fusion with dragons in abundance. It was great fun from start to finish. Our studio is based in a converted stable, attached to Hopetoun House, so we know the house and the grounds extremely well. We see it in all weathers, at all times of year and have photographed weddings for 2 people to over 200 people. On Jen & James’ wedding day the weather was glorious.
Here at last (sorry been a busy couple of months!) is the second part of Nina & Russell’s wedding day story. Thanks to all of the feed-back on part one. Part two has less words and more (and bigger) pictures as requested!
And as promised, there’s lots of feathers, crystals, stars and glitter ….
