Scotland Wedding: Abode Hotel & National Piping Centre, Glasgow

As weddings go, this was quite possibly the wettest one I've ever experienced. But that didn't dampen spirits. With a 'let's get out there' attitude, I hit the streets of the Merchant City in Glasgow with Christine and Pally armed only with a couple of umbrellas and some sheer determination!

Glasgow is such an urban oasis with so many exciting parts to it, I could literally spend an entire week taking photos there. And what better way to start this wedding than at Abode Glasgow with its ceramic tiles and old fashioned lift, it was like stepping into the 50s, what an amazing space with stunning light, perfect for hair and make up to transform Christine into a bride. Linda from Linda Arbuckle MUA and Annette from Frizz Free Hair did a fantastic job. Christine brought her monkeys all the way from Canada to guard the rings, safe to say they did a good job too. And the talented Amanda from The Floral Design Boutique created Christine's colourful bouquet.

Time to let the pictures speak for themselves, here is a sneak peek for you all to enjoy!

Scotland Wedding, National Piping Centre, Glasgow

What can I say about Andrew and Andrew? From the moment I met them over a year ago I've thoroughly enjoyed being in their company. They're full of energy, enthusiastic about everything and are just genuinely nice guys. It's been an absolute pleasure whenever we've discussed the wedding plans, spent time doing their engagement shoot and talking about all sorts of stuff.

The morning of the wedding was so much fun. The guys were getting ready in one of the rooms in The Pipers' Tryst together with their bridesmaids Elena, Leanne & Katrina. Lots of laughs, hugs, smiles and much hilarity, the room was emotionally charged. I kept myself busy with the kilts, the rings, the shoes and the flowers before returning to the room to capture all the fun.

Every time I've photographed a wedding at The Piping Centre, I'm amazed by just how much running around behind the scenes is done by Caitlin and the team. Everything is looked after and this time was no different. Every single worry, panic, request or whatever, was dealt with calmly meaning that Andrew and Andrew could just concentrate on getting ready and then getting married!

It was so lovely to get to meet Andrew and Andrew's friends and family, they all helped make their day a special one. And in some ways I'm a little sad that it's finally happened as I've enjoyed the anticipation of that day for so long. But I am looking forward to meeting them in their new home over the summer. Get the coffee on boys!
