Scotland Wedding: The Barn at Dalduff Farm

This was one of the most delightful weddings to photograph as it combined rustic with pure and simple style! Plus I got to work with lots of my friends from Braw Brides (links at the bottom).

Scotland Wedding, Dalduff Farm, Ayrshire

Spending the day with their closest friends and family was the most important thing for Anne and Dave. The sheer effort they went to as well to fill Dalduff with the most intricate details, from signage to things on the tables, they literally thought of everything.

Anne and Dave put their complete trust in me which meant I could be a little creative. I worked out where and when the sun was going to set. To make the most of it, we needed to delay the speeches by 25 minutes. A quick discussion with Anne, Dave and the venue resulted in a fantastic early evening shoot in a barley field. Love it when a plan comes together.

Here is a small selection of images that tell Anne and Dave's Dalduff wedding story! Enjoy.

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.
