Rachel & Chris at Craigsanquer...

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald

Rachel's smile is infectious. From walking into their wedding day, I felt so comfortable, like re-united with old friends. Myself and Robyn couldn't help but laugh and cry along with this all the emotion of their day. There were so many little details and even though it was a cold day, the sun was out in force. Craigsanquer is an amazing venue, loads of different spaces to take advantage of, I am always really happy here!

The pride on Rachel's dad's face was hugely measurable as he walked her down the isle, I think they are my personal favourites from the whole day! I loved how helpful and easy to get on with both families were! Even when they were trying to help me find a non-existent guest! *long story*. Turns out also Rachel works for the Prince's Trust which is an organisation that has supported me and my business, so there were loads of guests I know, including the wonderful Irene - whoM i WAS PARTICUARLY EXCITED TO SEE WHAT SHE WAS GOING TO WEAR, SHE DID NOT DISSAPOINT WITH HER AMAZING TWEETY PIE TIGHTS! haha! I hope enjoy this small insight from my perspective of the adorable Mrs & Mr Lindsey's wedding day! 
i WAS SUPER SAD TO HAVE been long gone by THE time the TOTALLY AWESOME surprise choreographed father & daughter dance, but loved seeing the videos online!

Beautiful floristry from the amazing Studio & Waow - as per usual! 

The whole day was so perfect, and we left buzzing! I wish you guys a lifetime of happiness and was nothing short of a pleasure to document it for you! Here are some sneaky peaks, enjoy!

Denise & Cassian come to Scotland...

Back when I was a young whipper-snapper, I encountered and had the privilege of house sharing with this clever clever Portuguese beauty, Denise! I was so lucky to have Denise as a flatmate whilst I was studying! She was always so kind and thoughtful BUT my only qualm was the only Portuguese she taught me was minimal - My favourite is 'Quackas = Pants' - BUT the reason we are here is even though time has passed, and Denise lives back at home in a beautiful Isle of Azores, I was amazingly asked to photograph her wedding there with the very funny and handsome Cassian! 

Yes, this does mean I get to jet set next year and visit this beautiful piece of land to work! I was again really excited to see Denise for the first time in approx. 6 years and this pair of adventure chasers did not disappoint! We spent a day of marvellous weather in one of my favourite parts of Scotland, uniquely we essentially spent the day snapping. This was great with no time pressure I was able to just photograph this Ballerina & Rockstar in such a wonderful way... By the end we were in and out of fields, the car even got stuck in mud! I like to keep things interesting! Thank you to the DPD driver whom assisted in free-ing us! It was hilarious! 

We even stopped over in Dunked's Taybank. I always visit here when passing. As a summery, we climbed some waterfalls, roamed in some fields & and had some relaxing coffee, what more can you ask for? I hope you enjoy these images as much as I loved taking them! 

An unconventional day...

So I met Lee many years ago, long before I was a full time wedding snapper... I worked in a pub where three gentlemen would pop in for a tipple. These three may have been cheeky chappies but they were so lovely. So when Lee and Niamh asked me to photograph their 'wedding' I was really happy and was under no impression that it would anything but bonkers, mad, beautiful and fun! 

I knew they were getting married in Ireland, so what I was photographing was actually a blessing, therefor they had all the wedding images you would usually receive, so I took this opportunity to photograph more of the atmosphere, I was excited for this challenge and considering their wedding images from Ireland were beautiful. I had a lot to live up to!

They day started, with family and bacon rolls! May I add Lee asked me ''would you like a cup of tea, I make the best cups of tea'' I obliged thinking, ''But do you really?'' I can say I started snapping this day with one of the best cups of tea in my tummy! 

I adored that Lee got ready with his wife of slightly over a month, there was no hiding. Niamh and the bridesmaids even helped Lee get into his suit! I loved this. We photographed in the garden as everyone laughed and had a few drinks. I was excited as I knew there was a big surprise for the day, little did I know how wonderful and extravagant it would be! 

A full piping band and hundreds of guests were eagerly awaiting them, live music was played in the amazing weather (may I add it was extra special as my fiancee Gavin was the musical entertainment along with Dave Webster) They went down amazingly with the enthusiastic Irish! Never-mind the amazing full carnival stalls and rides that adorned the beautiful countryside home.

From the get go, there was dancing, there was no conventional order to the day, which took me by surprise and usually I am queen of organisation, so it was strange and lovely to take time without having to rush for the usual deadlines of the day. Shortly after they had a beautiful blessing - simple, authentic and heartfelt. 

Next a poor waiter fell over, I run over to photograph him ;) not thinking what guests may think of me photographing this poor man as he fell smashing to the ground about 100 knives and forks - BUT maybe I was in on a secret! Amazingly wild performance from the waiters. As everyone shrieked to help the waiter he gets up on the table and starts singing and dancing the whole place errupts, which naturally led to Lee and fellow men of his choosing to end up in there boxers on the dance floor, i'll let you fill in the blanks haha!

Dancing, singing, bands, food, carnival rides including my favourite the 'Miami' was there! It was a party to remember! Thank you both for having myself and Kirsty there, although we worked hard, they day was nothing but a joy and pleasure to be a part of! Have a wonderful life, and hope to see you both soon! I hope enjoy this selection of your images!
