The first wedding of 2011 was a local one, at Pulteneytown Church in Wick. Tanya Horne and Graham Fryer were married there, with the reception at the Portland Arms Hotel in Lybster. Knowing the couple and Tanya’s family really well made it the perfect start to the year, with a relaxed and fun atmosphere throughout the day. The weather was kind also with unusually mild temperatures for January, not a breath of wind, and even some sunshine! Tanya got ready at the Church Apartments in Lybster which was a great choice as there was loads of space and great locations for photography. Tanya is a highland dance teacher and Graham is a rugby player so there was a few themed shots throughout the day to show this side of them. Graham is also into shooting so we managed to get some shots (pardon the pun) with their dog Breac and a shotgun at Latheronwheel Harbour! A great day and I’d like to thank everyone for making me feel like part of the family :)

What was your favourite moment of the day? It was so hard to pin point a favourite moment, but i would probably say that everytime i looked around people were smiling, they were obviously having a lovely time and was so nice that they could be part of our special day
What advice would you give to other brides planning their wedding? Be Organised, you can never be finished with your plans too early, you can then sit back and enjoy the day and the run up to it!
Was there anything you’d have done differently? Honestly….NO! everything was just the way i dreamed and was perfect
Any other stories or comments: I was dreading the photos, neither me or my partner are big fans of a camera but John was excellent made us feel so relaxed and most of the time i didn’t even know he was there. It actually turned out to be one of my favourite parts of the day!
Here are a few images from the day and there’s a wee slideshow at the end.
