2016 A Review Of My Year

May turned out to be a great month, because as well as the cycling events, I had a huge success in the BIPP Scottish Regional Awards. It was definitely worth a trip to Glasgow

BIPP Scottish Region Awards

BIPP Scottish Region Awards

Yesterday I was in Glasgow, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, for the annual Scottish BIPP awards.It was a fun day, which started with the student awards, which were really amazing quality, and they had a great turn out on the day. We then had talks from the Judges Denise and Alan, before the AGM and buffet. Then it was awards time. I must admit, I didn’t expect to get anything this year, as I had (as usual) left my entries to the very last minute, and couldn’t even remember what…

Fiona and Ross had chosen Kilmuir and Logie Easter Church for their wedding ceremony, with the reception being held at Kincraig Castle Hotel, Invergordon. We started the day at Kincraig, where everyone was getting ready. It was a nice day for November, although a bit cold and windy, but the autumn colours looked great. After a nice ceremony, we had some fun shooting around the church grounds before heading back to Kincraig for the rest of the photos. A great day – here are a few photos.

Culloden House Hotel, Inverness was the venue for the wedding of Thurso couple Anne and Roy. I love Culloden House for weddings, but it always looks it’s best in Autumn with the red leaves on the house really standing out. I had known Anne and her family for many years, as well as many of the guests, so this really was a pleasure to shoot. I love Caithness weddings, even when they are not in Caithness. It’s always good catching up with people I know. The ceremony was a fun…
