Lisa and Lee’s Shetland Adventure – 3rd August 2012

My Shetland adventure for the wedding of Lisa and Lee started when I received a email the day before I was due to fly North with a Northlink Ferry confirmation.  The email read “Hi Nicholas, This is the confirmation for the booking of the boat. Hopefully we won’t need it”.  After various phone calls to the airport on Thursday, and with all the flights heading to Sumburgh cancelled due to fog, I headed to the ferry port with a long rocky night ahead of me and an early start in the morning.

I was met from the ferry by the grooms father – as if he didn’t have enough to do with a few days of traditional Shetland Wedding celebrations ahead of him.  I was taken to the beautiful Busta House Hotel one hour and ten minutes from Sumburgh.  The hotel is rich with history – the earliest part of the house was built in 1588 and allegedly even has its own ghost frequently seen by guests.  But not me – I couldn’t hang around to meet it as the bridal preparations were well underway.

The wedding was planned to perfection and the rain even held off for Lisa and Lee to have some gorgeous photographs taken on the stunning coastline around Busta Voe and the northern coastline.  The Shetland landscape was breathtaking and the newlyweds were great fun to photograph.  The party continued back at the hotel with a traditional ceilidh band taking the celebrations into the wee sma’ hours.

David and Vanessa – Drumtochty Castle

Vanessa and David booked their dream wedding in one of Scotland’s most enchanting Glen’s.  Choosing stunning Drumtochy Castle and St Palladius Church for their wedding in late June would have been a fairly safe bet you would think for at least a dry day.  However, June 2012 is now being debated as the wettest June on record and to say it was raining heavily would be an understatement.

And so we set off rain jackets, wellies and umbrellas packed, with a plan of many wonderful interior bridal photographs we could do within Drumtochty.  This was far from ideal for us but we knew it would be almost impossible to photograph in such a downpour;  not that it would be impossible for us – but we understand that for the Bride the all important dress, hair and make-up may be compromised.

However, Vanessa and David are no ordinary newly weds… for them there was no backing out of the muddy puddles and midge-ridden air (Julie the piper proof of this suffering a proud 37 midgie bites).  They had travelled up from Northamptonshire especially to enjoy their Scottish Wedding and umbrellas and welly boots were the new rule of the day.  Thanks to the weather and couple, the collection of photographs they have of their big day are some of the most wonderfully atmospheric that we have ever taken at Drumtochty Castle. Their day seemed perfect and full of love and laughter along with their family and friends.  And we’re pleased to say that the rain never dampened their spirits.

Vanessa and David, thank you so much for being such wonderful sports and we hope you love your photographs as much as we do.

Kate and Graham

It was a rather wet and drizzly first visit for us to Fasque House - a rather stunning venue located near Fettercairn in South Aberdeenshire provided us with a rather moody atmosphere for  Kate and Graham’s wedding on 16th June 2012.

Historically, Fasque Estate belonged to the Gladstone’s.  The family of the four-time Prime Minister, William Ewart Gladstone bought the present house in 1829, twenty years after its completion. William was raised here, and was a frequent visitor in his adult life.

Kate and Graham hired the picturesque venue for the weekend, with a celebratory barbecue on the Friday night before the big day.   But there could be no hangovers as bridal preparations started early on Saturday with Make-Up by Frances at Chicabelle and hair by Tracey Allan at De Milo.  Kate looked perfectly stunning and even braved the weather to be escorted to the front entrance of the house before being piped down the aisle to the tune of Highland Cathedral.   The drizzly weather unfortunately continued to worsen and even made the deer on the front lawn take shelter, so red carpets were pulled aside so we could use the beautiful interiors of Fasque for the bridal photographs.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Fasque – and we were very privileged and delighted to be part of Kate and Grahams Wedding.  We look forward to working with you both designing your album and hope you have a fantastic honeymoon.

Mairi and Andrew – Haddo House

Haddo House in Aberdeenshire was the ideal setting for our first summers day wedding of 2012.

The wedding of Mairi and Andrew has been long awaited after they met through work in Inverness five years ago.  Haddo House was their chosen venue as it holds many childhood memories for Mairi and her family.  The happy couple now live in Edinburgh.

Mairi wore a stunning Benjamin Roberts gown with beautiful Pedro Garcia shoes – and her ‘borrowed’ pearl necklace that her sister wore at her wedding.

The Canadian Hall in the grounds of Haddo looked amazing – dressed with white covers and purple sashes to match the bridesmaids dresses.  The stage ready for the Graham Geddes Band and the dancing into the small hours!
