It's well over 10 years since I had last seen Julia when we used to work together in Nottingham. Facebook has helped us to keep in touch and whilst I moved north of the border, Julia jetted off to work and play in Dubai and now Oman where she met Gordon.
I was delighted when she got in touch to ask if I would photograph their small and intimate wedding which was to take place at Lochgreen House Hotel in Troon, Scotland. Gordon is Scottish and they wanted a small wedding with close friends and family and especially for Gordon's Gran. After the wedding, Julia and Gordon would fly to Thailand to join their friends and have another wedding celebration!
I travelled down to Lochgreen House to meet them both the day before the wedding as I really wanted to meet Gordon and see Julia again before the big day. It was also lovely to be able to meet lots of their family too.
The weather was absolutely awful. Windy and wet was the order of the day. But it certainly didn't dampen anyones spirits. It was a lovely ceremony in a gorgeous room which was also the setting for the speeches and meal.
Here is a small selection of images that tell the story of Julia and Gordon's wedding day.
