Michelle and Tom at Dunnottar Church and Elsick House

Michelle looked stunning and so elegant in her Augusta Jones gown which she purchased at Ivory Grace. Bridesmaids Jacqueline, Lyndsey, Gemma and Steph completed this beautiful ladies line up wearing gorgeous pink dresses from Blush Bridal.

On Friday we had our first beautiful wedding at Elsick House with lovely couple Michelle and Tom.

We first met Michelle and Tom back in November when we did a lovely pre wedding shoot with them at Dunnottar Castle, and at home on Michelle’s Dad’s farm in Stonehaven. With a farming background, it was lovely to see the couple bring a touch of country life to their wedding!

Tom wore his own kilt which is the muted Grant.

Family and friends gathered at Dunnottar Church to see the couple being married by Minister Rosalind Duncan, before joining them at Elsick House for a wonderful celebration. The couple were piped in and out by family friend Gregor Macintosh.

The day had started wet, but the rain stopped as we returned to Elsick, allowing us some time with Michelle and Tom in the fabulous grounds of the House. Guests relaxed and mingled, enjoying canopes and drinks while listening to the excellent Myke Black singing.

The marquee looked beautiful, with table decorations from Higher Calling Events and a beautiful cake made by Truly Scrumptious Cakes by Joanne. The favours were  lovely little pots of homemade jam made by Tom’s granny Grant. So nice to see the whole family involved in the wedding preparations!

A fantastic meal from Hudsons Catering was enjoyed by all, before the evening entertainment was provided by great band Bahookie.

We wish Michelle and Tom all the best for a wonderful future together as Mr and Mrs Greenhill.

Both Holy Trinity Church and the Old Course Hotel were looking wonderfully festive, and the bridal party and guests were full of Christmas cheer.

We could not have wished for better December weather for the lovely wedding of Claire and Marc in St Andrews.

Marc and his groomsmen hired Midnight Granite Kilts from McCalls and made a very handsome line up.

It was wonderful to return to the warmth and festive ambiance of the Old Course Hotel to join family and friends for a fabulous meal.

The ballroom looked amazing having been decorated by Enchanted Events.

Evening entertainment was as lively as always from the talented Big Show, who soon had everyone on the dance floor with  a conga followed by a confetti canon!

Great couple, great wedding and  great crowd. What more could we ask for!

Finally we wish Claire and Marc a fantastic future together as Mr and Mrs Stewart!

Fiona and Liam at Strichen Parish Church and Banff Springs

Fiona and Liam at Strichen Parish Church and Banff Springs

After a lovely ceremony at Strichen Parish Church, guests retired to the Banff Springs to relax and mingle, and we headed to a nearby lake for some beautiful photographs of Fiona and Liam

What a great time we had with Fiona and Liam and their families on Friday, at Strichen Parish Church and the Banff Springs!

Fiona and Liam were a lovely couple who were very excited about their photography and up for anything!

Fiona looked stunning in her Augusta Jones gown which she purchased at Ivory Grace and her lovely bridesmaids looked so pretty in their pink dresses from Blush Bridal.

Steph Park and Melissa Cheyne covered hair and make up, and gorgeous flowers were provided by Aimi from The Flower Shop in Peterhead.

The handsome men wore their own kilts in the Scott tartan of course!

After a lovely ceremony at Strichen Parish Church, guests retired to the Banff Springs to relax and mingle, and we headed to a nearby lake for some beautiful photographs of Fiona and Liam. The setting was just lovely and the jetty and a lone fisherman all added to a stunning and fun photoshoot!

It was back to the hotel to mix with guests and get ready for the evening meal.

The function suite looked beautiful. A lovely personal touch were the favours, which were a charity donation to the Buttony Bear charity which provides special teddy bears for every child who has to have a stoma. This is something very close to Fiona’s heart as she is a stoma nurse. Please see a link to the face book page for this fantastic charity below in the style file. It is heart warming indeed.

It was off to the beach after dinner for some more memorable moments with Fiona and Liam. Lovely setting and too good to miss!

It couldn’t have been a more perfect day, but evening entertainment from the Graham Geddes band certainly rounded it off, after a surprise introduction by videoclip for the first dance !

We had an amazing coincidence on Friday. Our second shooter for the day was David Clark, who himself has been through bowel cancer and had to have a stoma. It just so happened that Fiona and two of her guests were nurses who had nursed him through his time in hospital. Helping us with Fiona’s wedding was something that was very special for David. We captured a great moment with the three of them and both Fiona and David’s Buttony Bear! The nurses will understand the significance of the card with the heart!! When David popped back into the reception in the evening to say goodbye, he was spotted by more nurses from the ward who mentioned they hardly recognised him with his clothes on!

We wish our lovely couple Fiona and Liam all the best for a fantastic future together as Mr and Mrs Scott.

Amber and Barry at Glen Tanar

Amber and Barry at Glen Tanar

The wedding ceremony was held in the lovely intimate candlelit setting of St Lesmo Chapel, which is just so full of character.

What a fabulous wedding day we had with Amber and Barry and their family and friends at Glen Tanar last weekend.

It’s been a while since we photographed a wedding at Glen Tanar, and it was certainly wonderful to be back!

Amber and Barry were a very enthusiastic couple from the first day we met them, and true to form they were just the best sports on the day!

The wedding was so personal and just the perfect mix of fun, laughter and emotion from everyone. You certainly would never have guessed that the rain barely stopped all day!

Amber had mentioned to us what a lovely and helpful coordinator Shona from Glen Tanar had been, and Shona’s commitment and friendship to the couple was evident throughout the day.

Amber looked simply stunning in her wedding gown purchased at Avorio, and her lovely bridesmaids complimented her perfectly in their pale pink dresses.

The girl’s bouquets were just gorgeous and were provided by Flowers by Lesley in Stonehaven. Lesley also provided the lovely table flowers and a stunning floral display in the Ballroom.

The handsome groom and his groomsmen hired their kilt outfits from Georgian Dress Hire.

The wedding ceremony was held in the lovely intimate candlelit setting of St Lesmo Chapel, which is just so full of character. Amber and her Dad were piped in by family friend Daniel.

After the ceremony it was off to the gorgeous lake setting to capture some lovely moments with our bride and groom.

Guests were very well looked after back at the ballroom where they enjoyed refreshments. Going down a storm were Barry’s mum’s home bakes. A particular favourite with a certain photographer was the aero tray bake!

As well as refreshments there was fabulous afternoon entertainment provided by singer Myke Black and Rich Gordon on the sax.

Other lovely personal touches at the wedding included Amber’s Dad’s vintage Jaguar which was the wedding car, his gin bar, whisky barrels and message bike. The beautiful wedding cake was also made by Amber’s brother’s girlfriend Chloe!

Hudson’s Catering provided a fabulous meal and service as always, and the only thing left to do was to dance the night away to the superb band Callenish, who provided a wonderful mix of ceilidh and contemporary music.

We wish this lovely couple all the very best for a fantastic future together, and hope that our photographs will always provide them with a lasting memory of their perfect day!
