2016: A year of wedding photography in Scotland

2016 has, quite simply, been off the scale. I spent a good few hours today going through each and every wedding I've photographed this year and I became emotionally involved all over again. I witnessed so much love and laughter and oh so many friendships. I heard beautiful stories about the lives of people I barely knew. I laughed and I cried many times. My heart overwhelmed with emotion. And best of all, I get to stand there and capture those very moments. Because I'm not just a photographer, I'm a human being and it's impossible for your fabulous days not to affect me.

I have been incredibly lucky to have joined so many of you at some of the most beautiful places across Scotland including Kinkell Byre, Kirknewton Stables, Glenfinnan House Hotel, Killearn Village Hall, Ardoch, Aberdour Castle, Loch Lomond Arms Hotel, Pollokshields Burgh Hall, Solsgirth House, Doune Castle and many more.

Thank you so much to all my brides and grooms for letting me into your lives to capture your amazing days, for believing in me and for giving me so much to capture to enable me to tell your stories.

I give you a glimpse of what 2016 looked like from where I was standing.

Scotland Wedding, Glenfinnan House Hotel, near Fort William

What can I say about Glenfinnan House Hotel? The most spectacular, amazing and picturesque setting for a wedding ever and we even dodged the showers for an outdoor ceremony, yay! From the moment I arrived till the moment I left, this was one of the most relaxed wedding days I've experienced and I feel so privileged to have been a part of it. 

I get excited by great light and boy did we find some in the most unlikeliest of places - an old tin shed, a dirty rotten log store and a very boggy field. And I had help from the amazing Markk Donnelly, his second time assisting me and only his second wedding. Look out for him in the future people. It was lovely to work alongside the very talented Kirstin Alexandra Makeup Artist who made Louise look even more amazing.

A highlight of the day was when we took Louise and Marc over to the Glenfinnan Monument. We couldn't have timed it any better as we heard the chug chug from The Jacobite as it made it's way across the Glenfinnan Viaduct, made famous of course by Harry Potter!

And so, without further ado, here is a sneak peek from their wonderful wedding day. Enjoy!
