Autumn and Winter Wedding Tips

Autumn and Winter Wedding Tips

Long gone are the days of wedding season running from May to September. The modern wedding market is spread out across the entire year and in all seasons. The availability of a wider range of venues, the more open approach to timings, varied pricing as well as availability of venues and suppliers, and a variety of other factors all contribute to this. From a photography point of view, it is a great thing, as it makes the weddng season last longer, and avoids the pressure of trying to cram all…

Ackergill Tower Wedding Photography – Karen and Craig

Ackergill Tower Wedding Photography – Karen and Craig

It had been a while since I had done a wedding at the amazing Ackergill Tower, having been busy there over the years, so it was great to be booked for this one, and I was delighted to get back there and appreciate this stunning castle. Karen and Craig had travelled up from Edinburgh for this one, although Karen was from over the water in Orkney originally. I started off with the girls getting ready at the tower, which was a very relaxed pace and gave me plenty time to…

Achnagairn Wedding Photography – Donna and Allan

Achnagairn Wedding Photography – Donna and Allan

A local wedding for me again at the stunning Achnagairn along the road from me. Donna and Allan are from Caithness but chose to get married at this awesome venue. The day started for me with the guys doing some clay pigeon shooting in the gardens before heading upstairs to get some shots of the girls getting make up and hair done. We then had a lovely outdoor ceremony in the sunshine. The photo session in the grounds was great fun, before we had some emotional speeches, followed by the…

Dunrobin Castle Wedding Photography – Donna and Louis

Dunrobin Castle Wedding Photography – Donna and Louis

Another visit to my favourite castle for this wedding. I love shooting at Dunrobin, such a fairytale location. Donna and Louis were married there with a lovely humanist ceremony after getting ready at the Royal Marine in Brora. It was a lovely day but the photoshoot was cut short due to a midge attack! We then headed back to Brora for the reception. Great fun as always.

Bunchrew House Wedding Photography – Faye & Ryan

Bunchrew House Wedding Photography – Faye & Ryan

Faye and Ryan chose the lovely setting of Bunchrew House Hotel for their wedding and they couldn’t have picked a better day for it. One of the hottest days of the year, which really showed this venue off against the Beauly Firth. I started at Bunchrew for the arrivals and then we had a lovely ceremony on the lawn, before setting off to do some photography around the grounds.   w

Wedding Photography Ardross Castle – Isla and Steven

Wedding Photography Ardross Castle – Isla and Steven

Isla and Steven were married at Ardross Church, with the reception along the road at Ardross Castle. These were both new venues to me, which is always exciting, especially when they are such fantastic places. We began up at Aspen Spa, Tain, where the girls were getting their make up done, before heading to Isla’s to get ready. It was a pretty wet day, with rain showers starting just as I arrived at the church. This never spoiled anything though, and we managed to get some outside photography done after…

Loch Ness Country House Wedding – Kat and Paul

Another wedding at one of the most popular locations in the Inverness area, Loch Ness Country House Hotel. Kat and Paul chose the hotel for their very intimate wedding recently. A great day, and here are some images.

Chrissie & Rory – Wedding Photography Perth

Chrissie & Rory – Wedding Photography Perth

“I wouldn’t want to be your photographer”. Apparently this was a line repeated often to Chrissie prior to her wedding. Being a very experienced model and keen photographer, her expectations for her wedding were always going to be high. How did I feel about this added pressure? Well I didn’t see it as extra pressure, but more of a compliment, and a confidence boost to be chosen over the hundreds of photographers in her contacts list. I’d known her for many years myself and was flattered that she chose me…

Wedding Photographer Inverness – Charlotte & Dustin, Glenmorangie House, Cadboll

Wedding Photographer Inverness – Charlotte & Dustin, Glenmorangie House, Cadboll

Charlotte and Dustin came over from the USA to get married at the beautiful Glenmorangie House, Cadboll, in Ross-shire, and chose me to capture all the special moments from their very small and intimate wedding.  It was a very relaxed and fun afternoon, in nice weather conditions for March. There was just six people there, so it really was a very special ceremony, and afterwards we had some fun around the grounds, before they all went to do some clay pigeon shooting, which was very competitive! A great day :)…
