Aynsleigh and David

Aynsleigh and David were married at one of the most sought after destinations for couples, the very quaint and beautiful Luss Parish Church on the shores of Loch Lomond. I know these surroundings can be quite atmospheric when the weather is dull and wet but it was quite the opposite and with the weather being pretty much perfect, the views and conditions were absolutely perfect for a wedding!!

The reception was held at Duck Bay Marina, this was the first time that I have worked here and I was really impressed, of course it helps with the outstanding vistas!

Aynsleigh and David were amazing and nothing was any bother what so ever. I was delighted with the photos and this amazing couple were completely over the moon with their photographs.

Ross & Ashley

Ross & Ashley were married at the amazing St. Gilberts church right across the road from Sherbrooke Castle.  We were lucky (again) with the weather and managed to get then whole bridal party outside for something a bit more ‘quirky’.

Sherbrooke is a venue that I am working at more and more often and I am really loving it, I was there only a couple of weeks back and they have made a huge effort to improve the gardens around the castle.

Ross and Ashley are such a lovely couple and I wish them all the happiness in the world!!!

Gemma & Jamie

I always love the chance to work in the city centre!  Gemma & Jamie’s wedding was a really small one at Glasgow’s registry office with just a couple of friends.  I had loads of time to get the shots I had in my head that morning which is always great as there is usually serious time restrictions at weddings.

Gemma was such a beautiful bride and they were both just amazing to work with, I was honoured to be asked to take some photos from them!O'Neill-5O'Neill-10O'Neill-14O'Neill-39O'Neill-47O'Neill-53O'Neill-58O'Neill-80O'Neill-88O'Neill-94O'Neill-97O'Neill-103O'Neill-109O'Neill-112O'Neill-116O'Neill-125O'Neill-138O'Neill-140O'Neill-145O'Neill-147O'Neill-148O'Neill-156O'Neill-161O'Neill-167O'Neill-174

Martin & Victoria

Martin and Vicky were married in September last year at the amazing Culcreuch Castle, Fintry.  Everything about their day was so amazing.  We were blessed with great weather and had nothing but laughs with such amazing family and friends!  I love working at Culcreuch as there are loads of great places to have photos taken, if it were up to me I would drag my couples all around the amazing grounds all day but unfortunately the chef isn’t too keen on that idea, lol.

Vicky & Martin picked their amazing Graphistudio album up not all that long ago and were absolutely over the moon with their books.  Amazing couple!!

Amanda & Martyn

2 weeks after Eve & Lee’s wedding at the amazing Altskeith Country House, I was back for a second helping in highland goodness!!!  I love it up at Altskeith and as a matter of fact I am there next week too!  Next weeks wedding sort of inspired me to get another blog post done as I have been so lazy when it comes to blogging so apologies for that!!

On to Amanda and Martyn’s wedding….  I know I keep saying this but what another absolutely phenomenal couple!  I am so blessed to have this amazing job and I get to meet some brilliant people.  Amanda and Martyn have been together for quite a while and they have a lovely wee boy who was just fantastic on the day too.  It’s not very often us photographers get to shoot a wedding outside, let alone by the most beautiful highland scenery.  Most weddings I do at Altskeith are pretty low key and this was no exception. I always find the pressure to be almost non existent with small weddings and this, I believe, leads to much more natural, relaxed photographs.

Amanda was such a beautiful bride, inside and out, I really loved her dress, she looked right at home wearing it! x

Eve & Lee

Eve & Lee were married at Altskeith Country house on the beautiful shores of Loch Ard.  I do quite a few weddings at Altskeith and I absolutely love it!  The scenery is breathtaking and the photo opportunities are again endless!!  For me, the best thing about Shooting weddings at Altskeith House is that I get to go out on a boat and paddle around for a while!  Eve & Lee weren’t up for going out on the row boat but I went out and got some great shots of them both on the shore, this meant I could choose the back drop I wanted and man was there loads of choice!!!

Altskeith House is a relatively small venue and holds mostly intimate weddings, this always allows me time to float about the day and and cover a great deal of the wedding ‘reportage’ style.

Arlene & Liam

I absolutely love city centre weddings!  Arlene and Liam were married at a chapel in Cumbernauld with the reception at the amazing Old Fruit Market in Glasgow’s Merchant City area.  The photo opportunities in the city are pretty much endless but can sometimes get frustrating due to only having a limited amount of time with the bride & groom.  Every time I shoot a wedding in Glasgow I literally have to run around to get to all the best places I know as there are so many to choose from!

The Old Fruit Market is a massive venue and can be quite dark for the reception.  I managed to capture one of my favourite ever photos of the Arlene & Liam’s first dance.  It was such a great day and it looked like it was going to be a huge celebration into the night!!!

Arlene & Sandy

Arlene & Sandy were married last year at the Vu on a showery day.  I knew so many people at the wedding, I always find it more difficult to shoot a wedding when I know loads of people as people want to have a wee chat and ask how you’ve been.

Arlene & Sandy were amazing to work with and made my day very easy indeed!!!!Niven-4Niven-11Niven-18Niven-20Niven-23Niven-34Niven-35Niven-37Niven-39Niven-48Niven-49Niven-50Niven-65Niven-70Niven-81Niven-91Niven-93Niven-94Niven-95Niven-99Niven-104Niven-106Niven-112Niven-117Niven-124Niven-140Niven-153Niven-166Niven-169Niven-178Niven-180Niven-183Niven-186Niven-189Niven-192Niven-201Niven-202Niven-248Niven-265Niven-271Niven-273Niven-275Niven-281Niven-288Niven-294Niven-296Niven-298Niven-307Niven-310Niven-321Niven-325Niven-330Niven-335Niven-337Niven-342Niven-347Niven-351Niven-356Niven-383Niven-384Niven-391Niven-398Niven-400Niven-416Niven-424Niven-453Niven-456Niven-461Niven-466Niven-469Niven-475Niven-477Niven-482Niven-490Niven-496Niven-500Niven-504Niven-506Niven-511Niven-514Niven-522Niven-525Niven-529Niven-533Niven-537Niven-548Niven-599Niven-606Niven-618Niven-627Niven-640Niven-664Niven-665Niven-667Niven-669Niven-681Niven-682Niven-684Niven-687Niven-689Niven-696Niven-741Niven-796Niven-805Niven-806Niven-807

David & Sarah

What an absolute scorcher David and Sarah had for their big day.  The wedding took place at a modern-ish (70’s) church with the most incredible ceiling.  The reception took place at the wonderful Eglinton Arms, Eaglesham.  This was the first time I have worked here and it lived up to the good stories.  The staff were amazing and I was really looked after all day.

David and Sarah were so easy to work with and coupled with the weather we had it was a great day for photos.  I always try my best to take the bride and groom around as many places as possible in the time given, there’s nothing more depressing that most photos all taken in the same area.  I love the diversity of most venues, even if there isn’t a great deal to photograph inside sometimes, thats when the challenge comes alive.
