Catherine + Christopher - Lochside House Hotel

Catherine + Christopher! What can I say about them? They were probably the smiliest couple I've ever met. Literally the full day they were grinning from ear to ear. I had met them initially when I shot Christopher sister Paula's wedding a few years prior so it was nice to see everyone again! 

The Lochside Hotel provided the perfect backdrop for this November wedding, adding an extra touch of charm and elegance to the already picturesque affair. This was the first time I had been back since they big refurb and oh my - it's huge! Not many places in Scotland you wouldn't mind staying the whole day inside for even if it rained - you're really spoiled for choice on locations inside for photos!  

If you're getting married at the Lochside House in the future, please message cause I bloody love shooting there.

Samantha + Fionnlagh - Botanical Gardens

Samantha + Fionnlagh are clearly besotted with each other after meeting them for their pre-wedding shoot. They reached out last year to ask me to be their photographer for their wedding for Summer 2023 at the Fruin Farm and I can't wait. Have a wee look at my previous blog post from my last time there!

When we met at the Botanical Garden in Glasgow it was awfully chilly. Here I was wearing my biggest warm jacket and there was Samantha + Fionnlagh wearing a t-shirt and cardigan. I don't know how they managed! The park itself was gearing itself up for the GLOW festival so we were lucky it wasn't as busy as usual.

We walked for an hour round the park while they held each others hands and spoke about what films and tv they were currently watching. They had already finished The Watcher and I was just starting it (wouldn't recommend it btw). And I recommend the film Smile after just seeing it the night prior. (best horror film in years tbh).

We ended our wee hour in the park down by this red and golden tree near the entrance of the park, before they headed off for a wee afternoon date round the West End of Glasgow. I'll definitely won't have any problems with awkward poses with this pair! A pair of naturals.

Natalie + Derek - Saint Luke's & The Winged Ox

It was an absolutely stunning day at Saint Luke's & The Winged Ox for Derek and Natalie's wedding celebration! After facing a few reschedules, it was incredible to finally witness their special day surrounded by numerous friends and family members. You never have a dull day at Saint Luke's; this beautiful old church is one of my favourite Glasgow City venues. 

In addition to the heartfelt ceremony, we had the unique opportunity to sneak into the iconic Barrowlands for some truly memorable photographs.

A huge congratulations to the happy couple on their remarkable day!

Susanne + Craig - SWG3

Susanne + Craig - SWG3

29 July 2022 was the best day in Susanne's life. The new Beyonce album came out. The day before that she got married! (Her words, not mine. Although Cuff It is a bop).

Susanne and Craig were originally going to get married 2 years prior but due to that big idiot called COVID ruining all our plans, it got rescheduled. And it was well worth the wait! Having been to many, many gigs at the Studio Warehouse, I did wonder how it would work for a wedding. I mean, it is what it's called - a warehouse! But wow, what a place to get married! Despite the rain, we were spoiled for choice for where to go to inside for photos.

The day was set up beautifully by wedding planning team, Fin Flukra. Cat and her team had everything organised to a Tee and made the day go smoothly. Every wedding should have a Fin Flukra!

Celebrant Rachel - who I seem to run into at weddings about 4 times a month, was the one to conduct the ceremony and tell us all about Craig and Susanne's love story. Susanne's bestie, Emily came up to read out a beautiful poem before crying and grabbing Susanne and telling her she was her favourite.

After the ceremony we managed to run up to the roof (the actual roof) of SWG3 and get some beautiful scenic shots of Glasgow as our backdrop. Despite the skies turning grey and the rain teasing us, we got some epic shots. You could see the whole of Glasgow, and my hoose all from the roof of the warehouse. It wasn't too long before we ran back downstairs for the beginning of the reception.

Susanne opened with the speeches for the day and NGL...I've heard maybe 300+ wedding speeches - mostly from the dudes - and I don't think they will ever top Susannes. Nae 'upper hand' jokes here.

The reception concluded with the first dance but the moment of the night has got to be Susanne dancing with her Dad to Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark. Courtnay Cox and Brucie eat your heart out.

Celebrant: Rachel Hey

Eilish + Ross - Fruin Farm

Fruin Farm is a beautiful wedding venue located in the heart of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Scotland. The farm is a stunning countryside setting, by greenery and breathtaking views of Loch Lomond with it's main attraction being it's character, charm and adorable alpacas. This was my first time here and despite the less-than-ideal weather conditions, the couple's love shone through, and their wedding day was nothing short of magical. 

Eilish got ready with her gal squad including her mum upstairs in the little secret rooms of the venue popping Prosecco and blasting the tunes. The vibe was very relaxed that morning and it didn’t feel like the unpredictable weather outside was going to dampen anyones spirits. I didn't have to give any direction at all as the gals partied when I took some candid shots in the background.

Eilish’s brother and grandad arrived just in time to greet her before heading across to the gorgeous barn which was all beautifully decorated for her arrival. The ceremony was conducted by the wonderfully charismatic Mark Reilly who gave a very personal ceremony for the couple, and detailing their amazing journey together.

As Eilish + Ross exchanged their vows, the raindrops fell gently outside the farm house, creating a romantic and intimate atmosphere. The lush greenery and stunning landscape of Fruin Farm provided the perfect backdrop for their special day

When the ceremony was over, the newly weds ran across with a brolly in hand to make sure they didn’t get wet. Despite the rain, the couple was determined to capture the beauty of their wedding day. As they posed for the camera, their love and joy were evident in every shot. The photographs captured the magic of the day, from the stunning scenery to the couple's beaming smiles.

Such a relaxed and fun couple with an amazing tribe of friends and family!
