Suzanne and Jason’s wedding at Mar Lodge, Braemar

Suzanne and Jason’s wedding at Mar Lodge, Braemar

Suzanne and Jason’s wedding on Saturday was held in the one of the most picturesque parts of Bonnie Scotland at Mar Lodge in Braemar http://www.marlodgeestate.org.uk/ The couple who both live in London decided to get away from the city life for a little while and sample some of the beauty that the highlands of Scotland have to offer. Most of the day the rain came down as you can expect in Scotland but it really did not spoil anything, in fact it added to the drama as a backdrop to their wedding photographs and I would like to thank both of them for braving the rain to create their wedding images. Suzanne and Jason were a lovely couple to photograph and gave me the time to produce some stunning wedding images and were prepared to achieve this at all costs even if it meant braving the elements!
We hope you both have a great honeymoon and thanks for giving Aileen and I the opportunity of being part of your special day.

Rachel and Blair’s wedding at Eddleston Parish Church and Barony Castle

Rachel and Blair’s wedding at Eddleston Parish Church and Barony Castle

Yesterday we had a nice journey to the lovely little village of Eddleston in the Scottish Borders for the wedding of Rachel and Blair where they were married in Eddleston Parish Church. After the ceremony we made our way to the stunning location of Barony Castle in Pebbles for their reception and apart from dodging the showers the weather was fine for most of the day. We hope you both have a great honeymoon!

Janet and Alan’s wedding at Ross Priory

Janet and Alan’s wedding at Ross Priory

Yesterday I photographed the wedding of Janet and Alan at the stunning location of Ross Priory on the banks of Loch Lomond and thankfully the Scottish weather was behaving itself as the ceremony was held outside in the walled garden in the grounds of the Priory. The service was performed by the Rev Ian Millar who for me really makes a difference to the service as he is so funny with his stories from past weddings, he certainly makes me laugh!

Janet and Alan many thanks for being such a great couple to photograph and for giving me the opportunity of being part of your fabulous day. I hope you have a fantastic honeymoon and I will see you both on your return.
