On Saturday, we were at the home of golf, beautiful St Andrews in Fife. We arrived a little earlier than usual to recce the stunning location as this is the first opportunity we had to photograph St Salvator Chapel in the grounds of St Andrews University. The small town was buzzing with the excitement of the forthcoming Dunhill Golf Championships, and of course the big event that was happening that day, the wedding of Fiona and David.
St Andrews University Graduate Fiona and David’s love story started with a chance meeting at their workplace. However, nothing today was going to be left to chance! We met with Fiona and her bridesmaids at The Old Course Hotel and Spa, where we photographed her preparations and her glitzy Jimmy Choos and Suzanne Neville gown. Afterwards we crossed town and met the chaps at the pier. David and the boys looked great against the stunning backdrop of the medieval town. The blushing bride arrived at the church on time and even had a few moments to spare before she walked down the aisle to pose for a delighted group of Japanese tourists.
After the lovely ceremony, the bridal party and guests enjoyed a sunny champagne reception in the courtyard. Bridesmaid Hannah and Page boy Lucas deserve a special mention for being stars to photograph! The evening reception took place in rather grand setting of the universities Lower and Upper Halls. The happy couples first dance was Caledonia performed by the Jenni Gibb Band.
We really enjoyed Fiona and David’s special day, and hope they are having a great time on their mystery honeymoon – (well, a mystery for Fiona as she didn’t know where she was heading to as David was surprising her!). Congratulations to you both and many happy returns for the future.
