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: Doune Castle & Killearn Village Hall

A lovely morning spent at Will and Natalie's beautiful converted stables home meant I was spoiled for choice when taking photos of the dress, shoes and the amazing flowers by Endrick Blooms. Great to arrive to see Will's handy work on their VW T5 camper van too! Then the showers came and we had a dramatic entrance to Doune Castle as the rain poured down from above. But that rain was short-lived and we were able to get outside into the grounds of this amazing castle. And not knowing the area that well, I was delighted when they suggested stopping at a little bridge where you can see the castle in the background.

Fantastic to work alongside Three Sisters Bake again at their Killearn Village Hall venue and that cake! Oh and a special mention has to go to Nick & Jack from The Veritable Ceilidh Club as they performed during the ceremony. Particular highlights were Stand By Me and then Falling Slowly during the signing. Amazing stuff!

So sit back, relax and enjoy this little sneak peek from another fabulous wedding day.

Killearn Wedding, Three Sisters Bake

My very first wedding at Killearn didn't disappoint and Three Sisters Bake were, as ever, amazing. Killearn has so much to offer, plenty to explore.

Three Sisters Bake Wedding Showcase, Killearn Village Hall

For couples planning their wedding, there was only one place to go this weekend, a wedding showcase hosted by Three Sisters Bake at Killearn Village Hall.

Situated in stunning surroundings and overlooking the hills and Loch Lomond in the distance, Killearn is Three Sister’s Bakes’ second cafe. But it’s so much more than that. Adjoining the cafe is the village hall, a blank canvas for you to style however you like for your wedding. And more recently, the newly renovated garden room located directly beneath the cafe allows your guests to mingle and gain access to the lawn.

The wedding showcase was no ordinary wedding show/fair/fayre (delete as appropriate!). It brought together suppliers with a passion for what they do. The result was a relaxed atmosphere with an incredible vibe for people to explore and experience.

Lemonbox Studios came together with Kendrick Blooms and between them they created a little magic which you can see in the images below. It was incredible seeing the ideas they came up with to make a warm and inviting room. 

So take a look through the selection below and imagine your own wedding and what it could look like.
