Denise & Cassian come to Scotland...

Back when I was a young whipper-snapper, I encountered and had the privilege of house sharing with this clever clever Portuguese beauty, Denise! I was so lucky to have Denise as a flatmate whilst I was studying! She was always so kind and thoughtful BUT my only qualm was the only Portuguese she taught me was minimal - My favourite is 'Quackas = Pants' - BUT the reason we are here is even though time has passed, and Denise lives back at home in a beautiful Isle of Azores, I was amazingly asked to photograph her wedding there with the very funny and handsome Cassian! 

Yes, this does mean I get to jet set next year and visit this beautiful piece of land to work! I was again really excited to see Denise for the first time in approx. 6 years and this pair of adventure chasers did not disappoint! We spent a day of marvellous weather in one of my favourite parts of Scotland, uniquely we essentially spent the day snapping. This was great with no time pressure I was able to just photograph this Ballerina & Rockstar in such a wonderful way... By the end we were in and out of fields, the car even got stuck in mud! I like to keep things interesting! Thank you to the DPD driver whom assisted in free-ing us! It was hilarious! 

We even stopped over in Dunked's Taybank. I always visit here when passing. As a summery, we climbed some waterfalls, roamed in some fields & and had some relaxing coffee, what more can you ask for? I hope you enjoy these images as much as I loved taking them! 

An unconventional day...

So I met Lee many years ago, long before I was a full time wedding snapper... I worked in a pub where three gentlemen would pop in for a tipple. These three may have been cheeky chappies but they were so lovely. So when Lee and Niamh asked me to photograph their 'wedding' I was really happy and was under no impression that it would anything but bonkers, mad, beautiful and fun! 

I knew they were getting married in Ireland, so what I was photographing was actually a blessing, therefor they had all the wedding images you would usually receive, so I took this opportunity to photograph more of the atmosphere, I was excited for this challenge and considering their wedding images from Ireland were beautiful. I had a lot to live up to!

They day started, with family and bacon rolls! May I add Lee asked me ''would you like a cup of tea, I make the best cups of tea'' I obliged thinking, ''But do you really?'' I can say I started snapping this day with one of the best cups of tea in my tummy! 

I adored that Lee got ready with his wife of slightly over a month, there was no hiding. Niamh and the bridesmaids even helped Lee get into his suit! I loved this. We photographed in the garden as everyone laughed and had a few drinks. I was excited as I knew there was a big surprise for the day, little did I know how wonderful and extravagant it would be! 

A full piping band and hundreds of guests were eagerly awaiting them, live music was played in the amazing weather (may I add it was extra special as my fiancee Gavin was the musical entertainment along with Dave Webster) They went down amazingly with the enthusiastic Irish! Never-mind the amazing full carnival stalls and rides that adorned the beautiful countryside home.

From the get go, there was dancing, there was no conventional order to the day, which took me by surprise and usually I am queen of organisation, so it was strange and lovely to take time without having to rush for the usual deadlines of the day. Shortly after they had a beautiful blessing - simple, authentic and heartfelt. 

Next a poor waiter fell over, I run over to photograph him ;) not thinking what guests may think of me photographing this poor man as he fell smashing to the ground about 100 knives and forks - BUT maybe I was in on a secret! Amazingly wild performance from the waiters. As everyone shrieked to help the waiter he gets up on the table and starts singing and dancing the whole place errupts, which naturally led to Lee and fellow men of his choosing to end up in there boxers on the dance floor, i'll let you fill in the blanks haha!

Dancing, singing, bands, food, carnival rides including my favourite the 'Miami' was there! It was a party to remember! Thank you both for having myself and Kirsty there, although we worked hard, they day was nothing but a joy and pleasure to be a part of! Have a wonderful life, and hope to see you both soon! I hope enjoy this selection of your images!

Back at Bachilton Barn...

Yayyy! I got to go back to Bachilton Barn, after such a wonderful experience with Sinead and David's wedding just a few weeks prior to Linzi & Richard's, I was especially excited! Everything from the staff being to warm and friendly to awesome outside catering and you know this was no different. Bachilton has shot up to the top of my recommended list!

The day started of with expectations of heavy showers - BUT what can I say I bring the sunshine ;)

Chrissie was assisting the day with me whom had done the wedding previous so maybe we were both feeling pretty confident in the morning. We arrived at Barrossa Apartments, where it was just a spectacular space for bridal prep, so spacious and tidy filled with beautiful people including little people too! Madison was a tiny flower girl (Linzi & Richards daughter) She was a star, she did some hilarious posing along with the cutest Chloe!

As you can see below Claire did a spectacular job at utterly perfect make-up! Claire's Facebook

Every detail was clearly meticulously thought out, from t-shirts in prep to the array of shades of bridesmaids dresses. I was excited to set of and see the how the venue was kitted out.

It's amazing how both weddings were amazingly detailed at Bachilton, both immensely beautiful, thought out but so completely different. I love that about this place. Couple get to make it their own in a perfect space, with dream lighting! 

Linzi & Richard were just ideal clients so funny, chilled and just beautiful! I swear you could convince me that Linzi had been a super model in a past life! Nothing phased her! I loved how keen she was to go in the field even though she had super massive heels on, my kind of client ;) Although Richard did carry her back like a true gent again made for hilarious photos!

I'll let you look at some photos of their day... and will pop some more reading in the middle...

Okay, it's time to say I do, I actually felt nervous for them, everything was just so perfect. Would you like to know something cute? It was Linzi's grandad whom was marrying them! I know could this be anymore adorable?

The venue was adorned in personal touches, polaroids of their life together were use to decorate the space, I found myself reading and laughing at them throughout the day - It was a real insightinto the both of their lives!

As the day moved on, again Gourley catering treated myself and Chrissie like Queen's of Sheeba!

A day filled with happiness and fun! I feel this is quite apparent, also a big thank you to all the supporting roles like the groomsmen and bridesmaids also family for helping round people up for pictures, you all look great and myself and Chrissie had a blast snapping it all for you! 

Lots of love,
