Alex & Christine

Alex & Christine were married at Glenskirlie Castle and it was an absolutely fantastic day!  Some wedding are more emotional than others but on the scale this was a good solid 10!

Every now and again us photographers are thrown a wee curve ball well for it was a massive one!  I had bought a brand new camera a few days before and this was my third and last wedding of the weekend, the Friday and Saturday had gone great and I was absolutely loving my new camera.  As I was taking photos of Christine’s flowers and 10 shots into the wedding day my new fancy camera completely died on me!  You can only imagine my horror!  I always use 2 cameras where ever I go with work for this very reason so as the day went on, the only thing I could think about was ‘wha if my other camera fails!’  Thankfully the rest of Alex & Christine’s day went great with no dramas at all.

Christine was not at all keen on having her photos taken but she was an absolute superstar and both Alex & Christine were a joy to work with.  Alex & Christine were really delighted with their images as was I.  Another amazing wedding, an amazing couple and amazing guests!Moore-1Moore-2Moore-3Moore-4Moore-5Moore-6Moore-7Moore-8Moore-9Moore-10Moore-11Moore-12Moore-13Moore-14Moore-15Moore-16Moore-17Moore-18Moore-19Moore-20Moore-21Moore-22Moore-23Moore-24Moore-25Moore-26Moore-27Moore-28Moore-29Moore-30Moore-31Moore-32Moore-33Moore-34Moore-35Moore-36Moore-37Moore-38Moore-39Moore-40Moore-41Moore-42Moore-43Moore-44Moore-45Moore-46Moore-47Moore-48Moore-49Moore-50Moore-51Moore-52Moore-53Moore-54Moore-55Moore-56Moore-57Moore-58Moore-59

Conroy & Kirsty

18699377_1633083530097007_8622096699589918075_oConroy & Kirsty were married  a couple of months ago at the beautiful Ingliston Country Club.  This was the first time I have been to this venue and I was very impressed indeed!

The weather was pretty good to us for a change and the wedding itself was a really great one!  The mood in the morning of the wedding was amazing, everyone was high as a kite and it made for really great images!

One thing I consider an absolute must for a wedding photographer is the ability to get as many diverse images as possible, truth be told, some venues are way better than other for photos and sometimes us photographers really need to use our imagination.  Ingliston was a joy to work at, there are so many great places to take photos with the bride and groom, in this case I had to cut it short due to the time restrictions.  We also managed to get out later in the day, I threw Conroy & Kirsty in my car and we drove to find something a wee bit different.  A few miles down the road I seen a field that looked amazing as the back drop was unreal, a view right over the Clyde up the highlands and west coast.  I am so glad that Conroy & Kirsty decided to go with me as it was just one of those lucky moments.  I was delighted with the images from Conroy & Kirsty’s wedding day, they are such an amazing couple!!!

James & Nicola

James & Nicola were married a few months back at the lovely little Condorrat Parish Church, my parents were married here over 50 years ago so it holds a special place in my heart!  There are quite a few venues these days where us photographers don’t get the chance to wonder around the church whilst the ceremony is taking place, this can be really frustrating especially when there is ample room up each side of the church seats.  There are so many great photos to be made during the ceremony but I’m afraid we have to abide by the rules and do what we’re told.

The ceremony was held at the amazing Glenbervie House, the weather wasn’t the best, it was cold and damp but the heavy rain managed to stay away long enough for some outside shots before heading inside to make the most of the staircase and the lovely honeymoon suite.  James & Nicola were so fantastic on the day and made my job so easy, I love couples that are so relaxed on their big day, believe me, many are not and it can take a wee while to get them used to being in front of the camera.Gilmore-10Gilmore-11Gilmore-25Gilmore-29Gilmore-32Gilmore-33Gilmore-39Gilmore-42Gilmore-44Gilmore-66Gilmore-74Gilmore-79Gilmore-82Gilmore-92Gilmore-99Gilmore-118Gilmore-125Gilmore-131Gilmore-135Gilmore-146Gilmore-168Gilmore-181Gilmore-186Gilmore-194Gilmore-199Gilmore-219Gilmore-222Gilmore-233Gilmore-243Gilmore-246Gilmore-250Gilmore-253Gilmore-259Gilmore-262Gilmore-263Gilmore-266Gilmore-268Gilmore-271Gilmore-273Gilmore-275Gilmore-281Gilmore-286Gilmore-287Gilmore-312Gilmore-316Gilmore-318Gilmore-320Gilmore-324Gilmore-327Gilmore-328Gilmore-336Gilmore-339Gilmore-348Gilmore-352Gilmore-386Gilmore-393Gilmore-394Gilmore-395Gilmore-396Gilmore-400Gilmore-402Gilmore-405Gilmore-428Gilmore-430Gilmore-483Gilmore-501Gilmore-529Gilmore-535Gilmore-539Gilmore-548Gilmore-550

Chris & Karen

Chris & Karen were married at St. Mary’s Church in Duntocher followed by the reception at the magnificent Seamill Hydro.  The was the first wedding I have done at Seamill and the new renovations had not been long finished, I was really impressed at how amazing this venue was, the views across the sea to the isle of Arran are unreal.

Again, the day started off pretty wet but soon cleared and although it was mega windy we managed to get some cracking photos.  Any chance to shoot on the beach must be a good thing, surely!

Chris & Karen are such a lovely couple and it was a huge pleasure to photograph their big day!Gibbons-4Gibbons-6Gibbons-11Gibbons-21Gibbons-24Gibbons-32Gibbons-45Gibbons-48Gibbons-52Gibbons-55Gibbons-56Gibbons-59Gibbons-60Gibbons-65Gibbons-68Gibbons-72Gibbons-87Gibbons-99Gibbons-101Gibbons-104Gibbons-107Gibbons-112Gibbons-118Gibbons-129Gibbons-136Gibbons-140Gibbons-145Gibbons-150Gibbons-153Gibbons-156Gibbons-166Gibbons-174Gibbons-178Gibbons-181Gibbons-185Gibbons-204Gibbons-207Gibbons-216Gibbons-249Gibbons-257Gibbons-263Gibbons-267Gibbons-310Gibbons-325Gibbons-328Gibbons-335Gibbons-337Gibbons-346Gibbons-351Gibbons-369Gibbons-373Gibbons-380Gibbons-400Gibbons-406Gibbons-598Gibbons-619Gibbons-602

Stephen & Paula

The lovely Stephen & Paula were married at the amazing Mar Hall resort in Bishopton.  I had been in contact quite a lot with Paula prior to the big day and I knew how much her wedding meant to her.  We done a pre wedding shoot and that was a great way to get them both used to having their photos taken so by the time the wedding day came around they were seasoned professionals at posing.

Keeping in tradition with the weather 2017 has given us it was a real mixed bag, one minute we had it rather nice then next thing it was torrential rain.  I don’t mind this as I love getting a shot of my couple under a white brolly with the rain pouring down about them, this light with an off camera flash behind creates a great photo.

The day went perfectly and we managed to get some fantastic photos, I had such a fun time at this wedding!  I am so lucky to do what I do!

David & Debbie

David & Debbie were married at the amazing Western House Hotel.  The weather was perfect for a change.  I really love this venue as there are so many fantastic wee nooks and crannies I can take my couples for photos.  I also love the architecture of this building, it’s so photogenic!

Most of the wedding guests came down from the islands in the north of Scotland and the islanders know how to party!  As the day progressed we decided that it would be amazing to hold the wedding ceremony outside albeit a wee bit windy.  Outside ceremonies don’t happen too often for the simple reason that the weather just isn’t good enough most of the time so it was really great to have the space and light to capture amazing images.  As the night went on, the light just got better and better so we had to make the most of it by heading outside later on in the evening and I am so glad we did as we managed to capture some brilliant images of David & Debbie in the surroundings of such a wonderful venue!

David & Debbie went for a 14×10 landscape genuine leather perfetto album containing 90 images printed onto beautiful lustre photographic paper.Murray-15Murray-17Murray-27Murray-38Murray-69Murray-81Murray-87Murray-95Murray-98Murray-103Murray-142Murray-154Murray-162Murray-171Murray-172Murray-177Murray-186Murray-192Murray-198Murray-202Murray-203Murray-210Murray-226Murray-227Murray-230Murray-234Murray-235Murray-244Murray-263Murray-272Murray-291Murray-294Murray-300Murray-305Murray-310Murray-329Murray-353Murray-356Murray-367Murray-376Murray-391Murray-418Murray-474Murray-479Murray-481Murray-487Murray-488Murray-491Murray-495Murray-498Murray-499Murray-501Murray-502Murray-504Murray-508Murray-510Murray-513Murray-514Murray-528Murray-571Murray-680Murray-683Murray-692Murray-697Murray-704Murray-708Murray-714Murray-771

Andrew & Sarah

Andrew & Sarah were married a few months back now and their day was fantastic.  It was my first visit to Lochgreen House in Ayrshire and I was very impressed indeed.  Although the weather was a real challenge we managed to get loads of fantastic images taken on the day and Andrew & Sarah were delighted with their photos.

Their album was delivered last month and they went for a 14×10 landscape ‘Air Force blue’ coloured fine art leather album which is simply stunning.  This book was complemented with 2 beautiful parents albums with matching genuine leather embossed with the days details on their covers.

Stephen & Donna

Stephen & Donna were married at the amazing Boclair House earlier this year and what. day it was!  The morning went great apart from the bridesmaids and flower girls Volkswagen Combi breaking down on the way to the ceremony so things were a wee bit behind from there on in!

As a professional wedding photographer, Boclair is a joy to work at, not only are the staff really great but the photos we can get at night out the front of the building are just phenomenal!

I just wish we could get this weather all the time!!!Cox-8Cox-13Cox-56Cox-57Cox-70Cox-73Cox-86Cox-87Cox-92Cox-94Cox-121Cox-140Cox-148Cox-164Cox-174Cox-179Cox-183Cox-185Cox-194Cox-211Cox-219Cox-225Cox-228Cox-242Cox-253Cox-262Cox-264Cox-267Cox-273Cox-301Cox-315Cox-322Cox-329Cox-332Cox-354Cox-419Cox-430Cox-444Cox-449Cox-459Cox-485Cox-815Cox-816Cox-831Cox-832

I had the great pleasure of photographing this lovely mother and daughter a wee while back.  As you can see they are both really easy to photograph.  I took them to one of my favourite haunts for shoots and as always it turned out great.  V Coleman-2V Coleman-72V Coleman-41V Coleman-58V Coleman-22V Coleman-37V Coleman-11V Coleman-56V Coleman-16V Coleman-27V Coleman-33V Coleman-38V Coleman-77V Coleman-8V Coleman-78V Coleman-83

Mark & Eve

Eve & Mark were married at the beginning of the wedding season and true to form the weather for that time of year was awful.  It’s always a challenge when the weather is so bad where the thought of going outside with nice white umbrellas is out of the question as the wind is too strong.  Luckily enough Croy Chapel is lovely inside and we managed to get some shots done inside.   The reception took place at Bothwell Bridge Hotel where all the guests danced the night away!McBride-19McBride-23McBride-42McBride-43McBride-54McBride-56McBride-98McBride-107McBride-109McBride-116McBride-123McBride-126McBride-139McBride-155McBride-160McBride-166McBride-176McBride-177McBride-190McBride-266McBride-282McBride-317McBride-342McBride-344McBride-347McBride-352McBride-398McBride-409McBride-410McBride-416McBride-417McBride-426McBride-438McBride-582McBride-610
