Julie and Jordan – A Scottish Destination Wedding

Planning a Scottish Destination Wedding? This blog post is for you!

Julie and Jordan sent me an e-mail at the beginning of January asking if I would be available to help shoot some photos for them when they came to Scotland to get married the following month, I was delighted to be asked.

They have a great story as a couple, having only met six months ago in Germany despite both being from the USA. Julie was studying in Germany and Jordan was visiting with some friends from his Air Force base in the UK. They headed to Rome for their first date, Paris for their second and then came to Scotland to get married!

They had booked some accommodation at the beautiful Craigendarroch Hilton Resort in Ballater and went for a very low key ceremony in the local registry office in Aboyne. As well as being their photographer for the day it was a privilege to be their chauffeur and witness to their ceremony also!

We made good use of the beautiful scenery around Aberdeenshire for their photos with stops in Aboyne, Ballater, Balmoral, Crathie and the Lecht. The highlight of the day was managing to sneak our way on to the Balmoral Estate for some photos at the Royal Family’s Scottish Home, we didn’t ring the bell but I don’t think they were in!

If you are planning a wedding in Scotland and are looking for a photographer to make the most of your memories please do get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.

My diary is filling up for the rest of the year and with an already large pile of editing already on my desk I’m now fully booked up until September.

My most recent wedding booking is confirmed and I’m excited to be heading back to the USA to shoot the wedding of Jennifer and Andrew in Colorado in May!

Along with jobs in London, Scotland, Laos and Singapore it’s going to be a busy month!

I may have space to fit in a few child portrait session on weekdays but my dates are limited.

If you’d like to enquire about projects for after September please do get in touch – I’d love to hear from you.

Cortes House Wedding – David and Chrissy

I was in Aberdeen at the end of last week for a few days, first for the Girls Night In wedding exhibition with the Scottish Wedding Directory and then for the wedding of David and Chrissy at Cortes House on Saturday.

David and Chrissy chose to have a small intimate wedding with only 20 immediate family and some friends from the RAF where they both serve. Being a naturally beautiful venue Cortes made for a very laid back event!

Congrats David and Chrissy – thanks for letting me share the day with you both, and enjoy your honeymoon!

Diana and Mark – A Dunkeld Wedding

I was shooting the wedding of Mark and Diana on Saturday up in Dunkeld, in-between working on an editorial assignment in Glasgow – it’s been a busy week!

Mark and Diana’s wedding was another very laid back affair, with approx 50 friends and family joining them for the wedding ceremony in Dunkeld Cathedral and then a weekend party over in the stunning Eastwood House down by the banks of the river.

I first met Mark and Diana briefly when they were guests at the wedding of their friends Richard and Kelly who were married down in Derbyshire last year and who had also booked me to shoot their wedding. It’s especially satisfying to be asked to shoot a wedding for friends of past clients and great to see them again too.

We made good use of the beautiful surroundings around Dunkeld to work in some of the Landscape into the shots, it’s going to be a fun edit!

Ian and Christine – A Meldrum House Wedding

I was back in Aberdeenshire today for the fantastic wedding of Ian and Christine at Meldrum House.

Ian and Christine chose to have their whole wedding day at Meldrum with both their ceremony in the beautiful hotel and the reception in the permanent marquee in the grounds of the Hotel. I love shooting Marquee weddings.

It was a very relaxed day, and was particularly enjoyable for me to see some familiar faces as Ian and Christine had first discovered my work when I had shot for friends of theirs, Leanne and Rory a few years ago.
