Sarah and Aaron // Ingliston Country Club, Bishopton, 17th of June 2018

The Ingliston is now fast becoming one of my favorite venues. In the last year I've been 4 times and each time the staff have been so helpful and attentive and made the day go so smoothly. And on that note, it's time to show you Sarah and Aaron's wedding from June this year. It was such a hot June day with so many smiles and brilliant banter.

I started in the morning with Sarah in one of the cabins just a few minutes walk from the ceremony room, and she was ready to go and excited for her big moment. Special shout out to her little pug who made an appearance who was incredibly cheeky and adorable. I was lucky enough to get carted around by one of the Ingliston's staff carts to go back and forth to the groom and bride to avoid me from doing the long walk back and forth which saved me some valuable time! 

Both Aaron and Sarah were completely laid back the entire day so nearly all the images were completely candid! So I hope you enjoy the images as much as I did taking them!

Thanks to Aaron and Sarah for having me and I wish you continued happiness!

Donna and Alan // Luss Parish Chuch and Loch Lomond Arms - 1st of September 2018

Donna and Alan's wedding was one of those weddings where everything was right from start to finish -- there was a lot of laughter, lots of dancing and a lot of shots! We started in the morning with Donna at one of the fancy cabins just a short walk away from the Luss Parish Church who was very calm before her big moment. Then I caught up with Alan at the church. Needless to say, it was a very busy Saturday afternoon as the whole of Luss was filled with tourists walking around and being curious to know what was happening, getting that infamous 'Reservoir Dogs' walking shot was a tad tricky with the street filled with on-lookers.

The inside of the Luss Parish Church had a very interesting layout as the wedded couple stood centre of the church while all the guests were in a square looking on. It must have been a long day for Donna and Alan's wee boy as he had a wee nap during the ceremony!

We were lucky enough for the rain to hold off after the service to get some photos down at the Luss Beach - the sun was peaking it's head out from behind the clouds to shine down on us. Soon enough it was time to head to the Loch Lomond Arms for a few more formal shots and then off to party!

Thanks for having me Donna and Alan!

Lynne and Mark // Brig 'O Doon, 28th of April 2018

Blog 2 of 3 of the week is Lynne and Mark's wedding back in April this year. This was my first time at the Brig O Doon which is now becoming one of the more popular wedding venues within west of Scotland and I can see why! The Brig O Doon is perched right in between 2 stone bridges with the clear waters of the River Doon flowing under - perfect for wedding photos. 

I was with Lynne in the morning for bridal preparations and she couldn't stop smiling. Then with the groom Mark, I caught him just when he was about to have his (last) shave before the wedding. 

The weather at Brig O Doon was so perfect - just the right amount of sun and clouds for our formal photos - until...a monsoon happened. BUT it was fine, as we had just wrapped up photos just in time for dinner. We went outside for a couple more after dinner before the dancing commenced for the evening and before I knew it - we were all done!

Everyone was amazing and such a joy to work with that day.

Thank you to Lynne and Mark for having me as their photographer!
