On an exceptionally rare occasion, Scotland enjoyed a gorgeous day in February for the celebration of Maria and Martin's union. I was joined by videographer Ross from RMH Productions to document the bridal prep for Maria at her mother's house. Everyone was filled with joy and anticipation for Maria, including her equally enthusiastic sister Beth who spent some time documenting the morning with her disposable camera and giving me a run for my money.
The couple celebrated their wedding at St Mary's RC Church in Hamilton, led by the relaxed and easygoing Father O'Brien. After a brief concern about the missing bus (it was at the other church down the road), guests were transported to Boclair House for a champagne reception accompanied by a violinist from The Capella String Quartet. The newlyweds took advantage of the beautiful staircase and unique art deco design for their couple's photos.
As the temperature dropped, Maria put on her cozy bolero to stay warm, allowing us to continue our outdoor photo session. We captured some truly stunning shots of the couple against the picturesque backdrop of the venue's exterior. The setting provided a breathtaking atmosphere for the photographs, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect location.
The newlyweds looked radiant as they took to the dance floor for their first dance. Maria's white dress flowed elegantly as Martin held her close. They swayed to the music, lost in the moment, as their family and friends looked on.
As the night wore on, the party kicked into high gear. The DJ played all the crowd-pleasers, and the dance floor was packed with guests showing off their best moves. Maria and Martin joined in, laughing and spinning around to the beat.
The celebration was filled with joy and love, and everyone could feel the strong bond between Maria and Martin. It was clear that Maria and Martin's wedding was a true reflection of their love and commitment to one another. The memories of this joyous occasion would last a lifetime.
