OK, I admit it. I am a bad blogger. However, 2012 is going to be different! And to make amends here is a wedding from last summer to lift everyone’s spirits during the dark winter months.
Laura & Pete were married on a scorching hot day in June, blue skies from start finish – a real rarity in Scotland!
The day started at the stunning Crichton Kirk where Laura & Pete had a humanist ceremony. The ceremony was one of the most heartfelt that I have ever had the privilege to witness. There were many touching and personal moments throughout, at times I struggled to keep my eyes dry so that I could still see through the lens! I really do enjoy photographing couples who are so open with thier love for one another, Laura & Pete were the epitome of this.
The ceremony was followed by a reception at Mavis Hall Park, another favourite venue of mine. I love its rustic charm, there’s not many wedding venues that feature chickens freely wandering amongst the guests!
It was a wonderful, relaxed day that Laura & Pete really made theirs – a pleasure to photograph from start to finish.
Here’s what Laura & Pete had to say about the photos:
“Thanks for doing such a fantastic job on the photos – they were a lovely mix of group shots captured moments and wee details. Just what we wanted. We had a brilliant day and are very grateful to you for making the photo taking so relaxed and stress free – definitely helped keep everyone in great spirits!”
These are my favourites from the day.
