Ruth and Teal | Ardbrecknish House, Loch Awe

Wedding

What can I say about Ruth and Teal’s ” Scotland Edition ” wedding day. I say Scotland edition as they both flew all the way from Los Angeles, California where they both  live and work. The “U.S ” edition taking place later this year in Teal’s home state of Oregon. Ruth is originally from the scenic west coast town of Ullapool.

I say this a lot but it really was great to see both families come together from different corners of the world to celebrate Ruth and Teal’s love for one another. And what a setting! In the grounds of Arbrecknish House, looking over Loch Awe – it couldn’t have been anymore perfect. The day was far from traditional – Ruth – a busy costume designer,  made all of her shoes and dresses. She even designed and made Teal’s suit too! There was no wedding cake or traditional speeches , just lots of good Scottish whisky and dancing!

The only tradition was the clinking glasses!! I was wondering what was going on when everyone at the dinner table started clinking there glasses! This is an American tradition where the newly married couple have to kiss. Legend has it that back in the day wine was bitter and so by clinking the glass and the couple kissing – it made the wine sweeter! I like this legend story that was told to me by Ruth and Teal’s friends at the dinner table!

Thank you so much to everyone for making me feel so welcome on the day – I had an absolute blast with you all. All the best to you both Greyhavens!! Please say hello from time to time.

They were in the best of spirits as they laughed and joked about the previous nights excursions. It was a similar feel in the "bride to be" room.

Snow and I mean not just a wee shower greeted Ross and Leonie for there wedding day at Piperdam in early March. Weather reporters were calling this 'the beast from the east' a few days prior. Scotland can be a right fickle when it comes to weather!Leonie had planned to get ready with her close pals in her home town of Brechin at the newly decorated and charismatic Airlie House. With my winter boots packed and snow shovel in the back of the car, I left home early and made the drive from Perthshire.When I met Leonie the first thing she said to me was " We hoped for a flurry of snow on our wedding day!"From that moment I knew the day ...

Thank You 2018
2018. There are a hundred words going through my mind right now on how to describe it. I guess it was the year where everything just fell into place. A year where we celebrated moving into our first home together, then a week later our first son being born ( proud dad post! ) A year where I felt couples really understood what I look for in wedding days, furthermore wholeheartedly putting their trust in me to capture those special moments between loved ones. It was also a year of change and getting my work "out there" . Change being switching camera brands over to the awesome new mirrorless Sony's ( sorry Canon! ) Putting my work out there is ...
