Kirsten & Doug's Engagement Session: Sugar Sheds, Greenock

It's been a while since I did a shoot down at the Sugar Sheds, but my oh my, what a building. So many gorgeous colours and textures to shoot against, love it love it love it! And believe it or not, the weather was absolutely horrendous with heavy rain and wild winds sweeping through. Kirsten and Doug were freezing but braved the elements regardless.

See a full slideshow from their engagement session below including lots more images.

Scotland Wedding: Gleddoch House Hotel, Langbank

I don't know how we managed to dodge the (extremely heavy) showers, but we did. We even got our own chauffeur to drive us in a golf buggy to take us wherever we wanted to go, awesome! So much fun exploring the grounds of Gleddoch House Hotel with Lorna and Billy who just took the whole day in their stride.

Here is a small sneak peek for you all to enjoy.

Lorna & Richard, Tontine Hotel, Greenock

I'm kicking off my 'wedding sneak peek' series today where I'll post up some preview images from my latest weddings right here on the blog for you to enjoy. Of course, if you follow me over on Facebook and Instagram, you'll also see the sneak peek images there. Enjoy!

So today I'm starting with Lorna and Richard who were married at St John's Church in Gourock. We then went to the Mariner's Home for some pictures and on to the Tontine Hotel in Greenock for their reception.

Ardgowan Estate, Scottish Wedding Venue

Ardgowan Estate is one of the most magical and fascinating places I've ever visited. And it's a stones throw away from where I live! A few months ago I was invited to meet Sir Ludovic Shaw Stewart who gave me a quick tour of the place. It would make the most amazing wedding venue with so much to explore, more details about that right here.

I recently returned with my camera where I was given the freedom to explore. I walked into many of the grand rooms that looked out on to the estate. I was completely in awe of the place as I unearthed many of its hidden treasures that revealed some of its history. I ventured outside and stood at the door to the ruined chapel, imagining the people who once walked in and out of its grand entrance. Through the gardens, across the lawn and through the woodland. Ardgowan Estate has a heartbeat that's ready to come to life again and is about to begin another exciting journey. But right now, explore with me through the collection of images I captured. (oh and if you scroll to the bottom, you can see some aerial footage shot with a drone of the estate, amazing stuff!)

Gillian & Paul's Engagement Shoot

It’s fair to say that Gillian and Paul were a little bit nervous ahead of their engagement shoot. The only way to fix that is of course, coffee and a good old chin wag! So that’s exactly what we did down at Cafe Riva in Inverkip Marina. It had been a while since we had last sat down and talked about the wedding so it was really lovely to be able to talk about all sorts with them again.

After lots of coffee and wedding words, we eventually set out to Inverkip Beach. I wanted to do a mix of on the beach before heading into the woods. Gillian and Paul were amazing, eventually taking to it like ducks to water. I think they had a pretty fab time and so much lovely light in the woods to be had too!

Here is a small selection for you all to enjoy.
