Jo and Fran | Taypark House

Wedding

It may sound a little cliche but it’s true that every single wedding ceremony has it’s very own uniqueness to them. I absolutely love that as you never know how each ceremony is going to affect you and others around you. The wedding ceremony of Jo and Fran held at Taypark House in early September,  was one which left pretty much everyone in a blubbering teary mess – myself included!

Taypark house is special. It lies in the heart of Dundee but with it being surrounded by trees and slightly off the road it almost feels as though your out in the countryside. Alana, Rebecca and the staff are always very welcoming. I particularly like how wedding couples can hire out the house for an entire weekend making it a much more personal experience. Each part of the house has it’s own feel to it and its nice how couples can choose which room  they would like to hold certain parts of the day. Jo and Fran decided to hold their ceremony upstairs in the billiard room. Its not a huge room but one which I personally love to photograph in, it can hold about 60 people, which has a real intimate and personal feel…and the light is just perfect!

Jo and Fran live in Oslo in Norway but wanted to be married back where they grew up. On my first Skype call with them I knew straight away the wedding day was going to be far from traditional. They both felt that even though it was their wedding day, they didn’t want to feel centre of attention. Fran had already chose not wear the traditional white dress and they both decided to walk into the ceremony room together as equals. This was really important to Fran. As she put it “I was very uncomfortable about being “given away” and definitely didn’t want to be handed from man to man.”

Lots of Jo’s family and friends made the trip over from Norway to witness the pair tie the knot. There was a lovely  international feel to the ceremony. Angela Johnson was the celebrant and was excellent. She was so relaxed and easy to get along with. With the room being so intimate it was easy to quietly manoeuvre around allowing to get shots from lots of different angles.

It was at this point in the ceremony where  Jo and Fran’s college classmate and incredible talent Ida Svanes Ziener sang ‘you make me feel my love’  by Bob Dylan. Jo is a musician himself and is huge fan. The room was so still and quiet and Svanses sang her version, adding a Norwegian verse at the end, inspired by Norwegian artist Ane Brun. The moment Ida started singing you could feel the hair on the back of your neck stand up as her incredible voice echoed round the room.

Jo and Frans reaction says it all

With the ceremony at a close, I felt incredibly happy to see Jo and Fran walk back down the aisle. This time as husband and wife.

Two main things I'll remember from there day - THE best reaction from Dave, Penny dad when he saw her in her dress for the first time ( just scroll down!) and the crazy weather change - heavy rain in the morning to the most gorgeous light in the evening.
