Eryn & David's Wedding, Largs & Piersland House, Troon

Well what an utterly lovely sunny day we had on Eryn and David's wedding day, which let's be honest, was absolutely perfect given they were married in their home seaside town of Largs, it just has to be sunny, right?

I take my own family to Largs very frequently and I've always wanted to photograph a wedding in 'that' big red church on the seafront as it's such a lovely building (St Columbas to be exact). And it didn't disappoint. What's more, David is part of the RNLI Lifeboat crew stationed in Largs and we had planned to pop over to photograph them both together with the lifeboat and on-call crew members so that they didn't miss out. If we had more time I'd have had Eryn and David on the lifeboat in the water!

When we arrived at the Piersland Hotel in Troon, we were met with clear blue skies and could easily have been somewhere more exotic. The good weather meant that everybody was extremely relaxed and the kids made full use of the huge lawn to run about and play on. It's one of the best parts of photographing a wedding for me, floating about capturing everybody enjoying their day.

I thoroughly enjoyed taking Eryn and David away for a short while where we found some fantastic colours of purples and yellows amongst the flowers.

Eryn and David, thank you so much for having me photograph your wedding day. Here is a small selection of what I captured for you all to enjoy.

Eryn & David's Engagement shoot, Largs, Scotland

Having three children myself I know fine well just what life is like to err...have three children! Life is busy and making time for an engagement shoot seems an impossible task. Whenever one of my couples have kids, I always offer to include them in the shoot so it works as a kind of mini family shoot too.

And that's just what I did with Eryn and David. We went to a lovely local play park in Largs which the family knew well. I wanted them to have fun together as a family with lots of laughs, smiles and giggles and that's exactly what happened. Arryca, Reyd and Hyden had so much fun and I just allowed them to be themselves and run wild, well Reyd and Hyden did anyway! Arryca did what she did best, sit, smile and laugh!

I then took Eryn and David to the far side of the park whilst the kids played on the swings and kicked a football about (don't worry, little Arryca was looked after by Eryn's sister). It's always very difficult to show your emotions (and by that I mean your love for somebody) in front of a camera once you've already lived with each other for a number of years and had kids. But Eryn and David took to it like a duck to water. Twenty minutes of peace and quiet and being child free, time to breath and just be themselves.

Here is a small selection of the images I captured of them all.
