Vicky & John Sneak Peek!

I had the pleasure of photographing Vicky and John’s fantastic wedding at Glasgow University Memorial Chapel, and then Oran Mor in Glasgow.  It was made all the better with the fact that Vicky is family, which meant I got to spend time with my lovely in-laws while I captured the special moments of Vicky & John’s big day.

This is just a handful of my favourite pics of the day, more to come!

Vicky’s very talented friend made the wedding cake!

This picture pretty much sums up Vicky and John – fun loving, loved up, great people!

Veronica & Andrew

Veronica & Andrew had a fabulous, vintage-inspired wedding at 29 Private Members Club, in the heart of Glasgow city centre, in Royal Exchange Square.  They exchanged vows in May this year in this gorgeous boutique venue, which I have to say was magnificently co-ordinated by David Smith and his team.  They were so helpful!

Both Veronica and Andrew looked great, and it was plain to see the effort they’d put in with the small details, to make it every inch their own day.  The masks on the tables were fantastic (pictures below), as were the lego figures on the cake!  As Veronica was getting ready at the venue, it was perfect for capturing some of the fun of the bridal preparations, as well as getting some shots of the excitement building downstairs, including a couple of portraits of Andrew and his best men.

The proceedings kicked off with the couple saying their “I do’s” at a personal and beautiful candle-lit Humanist ceremony infront of the grand fireplace in the spacious Supper Club.  Although there was plenty of light coming in through the large windows, the candles added an intimate touch, giving off a nice warm glow.

After the ceremony, the wedding party headed downstairs for refreshments, and after a few group shots, we whisked the happy couple out into the square for some portraits.

We also had access to the Gallery of Modern Art, where we got some lovely shots on the balcony, and even managed to incorporate some artwork into our portrait session.

Adrian Wiszniewski’s Gentlemen’s Club (1990) made a great backdrop for a couple of portraits of Veronica & Andrew, which I shot with some dramatic side lighting.

We headed back upstairs where Veronica and Andrew relaxed with their guests for a while before dinner.

A marquee was set up for dinner on the amazing roof terrace, letting everyone make the most of the natural light during dinner.  The table decor was fantastic, as was the cake!

Congratulations Veronica & Andrew, and thanks for choosing us to document your special day!

Natalie & Stephen

Natalie & Stephen were married at Doonbrae House, Brig O’Doon, in Ayrshire in March this year.  The incredibly romantic setting, in the heart of Burns country, was always going to make for a fantastic day, and was a perfect choice for an intimate wedding.  The couple made their vows in the front room of the beautiful late Georgian house, surrounded by close family and friends, before enjoying a champagne reception.

After everyone had refreshed themselves, we headed out to the beautiful grounds for some photos, starting with some group shots, then onto some lovely portraits of Natalie and Stephen, who were quite clearly enjoying their wonderful day.  For March, we were lucky with the weather, as there were only a couple of showers earlier on in the day.  As the wedding was mid afternoon, we had some nice low sun by the time we started the pictures.

These purple flowers outside made the perfect setting for a nice shot of Natalie’s pretty tulip bouquet.

We wrapped up just as the sun was setting, because as you may know, March in Scotland may be beautiful when the sun’s out, but once it goes down, it can get pretty cold!

So with everyone relaxing before dinner, I left them to continue their celebrations.  Great wedding, lovely people.  Congratulations Natalie and Stephen!
