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

Valerie & Arianna

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

Andy & Sarah

Well, January and a new year is finally upon us.  It seems like winter, albeit 6 weeks old has been here for an eternity.  A little patience will reward us with the joy of spring and the warmth from that big orange thing in the sky they call the sun and all of a sudden it’s the wedding season!

To be fair, the weather has been relatively kind of late.  This year is going to be the busiest yet for me and I am really excited about what the year holds.  I have so many weddings, family shoots and properties to photograph that shoe horning some golf in might be a struggle, ha ha.

It’s been about a billion years since I have blogged and it has been on my thoughts loads over the holidays, I thought with the quietness over the Christmas holidays, I would have loads of time to start blogging but it wasn’t to be, I really quite enjoyed the time just to do, well not that much at all to be honest.  My first wedding of the year is at the beginning of next month and then it’s chaos from March on in!

Getting back to the subject of this post, Andy & Sarah.  Andy & Sarah are due to be married in the spring time, their wedding is to be held at Lochgreen house, Ayrshire, this will be the first wedding here for me and I’m really looking forward to it.  I love going to venues where I have’t been before.

Here are a few images from Andy & Sarah’s engagement shoot in Glasgow on Saturday morning…..

Steven & Liza

Going a wee bit further back in time with this wedding, only a week mind you.

Steven & Liza were married The Quay in Musselburgh, Edinburgh.  Lovely venue with the most fantastic and unexpected little harbour.  Liza was such an amazing bride and so, so nice, a real gem as was Steven.  I was made to feel very welcome which is always great.

Congrats once more guys!!!

Dave & Rachel

A few weeks back I had the great pleasure of shooting Dave & Rachel’s wedding at Strathaven Hotel.  The weather was a real challenge yet again (seems to be the worst summer ever, truly).  However the rain went off, eventually and we managed to get some good shots taken.

Congratulations again guys, you were amazing!!!

Sherbrooke Castle

Yesterday we had the fantastic opportunity of photographing inside the beautiful Sherbrooke Castle Hotel on the south side of Glasgow.  It’s always fantastic to shoot inside hotels as usually they have such beautiful interiors. Sherbrooke is amazing and I thoroughly recommend the great deals they constantly have with food and room offers.

The Perfect Aunt!!!

It’s always really great to get some nice feedback from either my bride and groom or guests from a wedding, especially the latter as it rarely happens and I really appreciate it when it does because after the wedding is over the guests go back to their normal life with the wedding they attended being a a lovely memory, so it’s brilliant that some take the time to write some nice words about my work.  This is from Samantha’s aunt and it has made my day……

“Gary, I was at Samantha Kelly and Alex’s wedding and I concur with everything Sam has said about you. The pictures are amazing, how to chose? On the day, I thought you were one of the guest, you were always laughing and blended in with the wedding party so well! Thank you for all your hard work and amazing results, I’ve got one happy niece!”

Samantha & Alex (Lochside House)

Samantha & Alex were married at Lochside House which by the way is my new favourite wedding venue. The weather was kind and spirits were unbelievably high. Samantha and the bridesmaids were in great form all morning and we managed to get some fantastic images throughout the day.

Here is the email I received from Samantha after she had seen her images on her gallery…. 

“Hi Gary,

Amazing. Absolutely fantastic. We’re speechless. Love them. Could look at them all day! I can’t thank you enough. Honestly, you were one of the best decisions we made about the wedding. Every guest without exception mentioned how fantastic you were. Would (and have been) recommend you to everyone.

Thanks again,

Sam” 

This is what it is all about for me. Now I can’t wait to get started on the album design!

James & Lynn (Glenbervie House Hotel)

Yesterday I photographed a wedding in the rain for the most part of the day.  Being a Scottish wedding photographer who shoots weddings mostly in the west (most rainy part!) challenges come thick and fast but as with every wet wedding I shoot there is always a few shots that you just have to try and get.  I always carry white umbrellas with me so regardless of the weather I will always get the bride and groom out in anything mother nature throws at us.

Luckily enough for us the sun came out half an hour before it set giving us the most magnificent light possible, it was bitterly cold but the light was magical and we made the most of it!

I haven’t edited the images as of yet but here are a couple from earlier in the day…
