2016 is done for me.  No weddings now until February (unless anyone want’s a last minute bargain) so going to have to concentrate on catching up on blogging most of last years 30 weddings and sorting out my site.

 

Here is a short film showing some of the highlights of 2016.

Have a good Hogmanay when it comes and I will see you all in 2017.

 

Aikwood Tower, Ardgye House, Aswanley,  Dunglass Estate, Freja Designer Dressmaking, Glencourse House, Graywalls, Melville Castle, Muckrach Country House Hotel, Roulotte Retreat, Signet Library, The Byre at Inchyra, The Lighthouse, The Spotty Dog, Wedderburn Castle,

Good evening.

Now that 2016 is coming to a close (it is, shut it!) I am finally catching up a bit with these wretched blog posts.  So much so that I am now in a position to blog a wedding which actually took place this year!

This couple, who’s name I forget as it was so long ago, got married or something at a castle or something in Scotland or something.  I do remember that he was bloke with a short name and expensive tastes in wine and she was a lady with a huge bunch of flowers.

It was February or January and there was a big dog, yeh there was definitely a dog, possibly black.

Ok, right that’s all the boring details out of the way.  Lets show you photos of a wedding which I know you will only be interested in if you know these people or you are getting married and thinking about getting some bloke to come along and photograph it.  Either way, just spend 5 mins having a wee look.

Oh wait!  Actually it’s a slide show.  Not done one of them in ages.  But (it’s ok to start a sentence with but) apparently it’s good for your SEO if you include slideshows and videos and stuff or something.

I find most photographer slideshows incredibly insipid and overwhelming spew-inducing.  So I have decided I’m only going to do slideshows now which have altogether inappropriate music.  This one is a cinematic orchestral piece, apparently.

 

 

 

And relax. I do remember them.  I remember at least half of my clients.  It’s Bethan and Rob and the wedding took place at Wedderburn Castle.

Here is a trade secret, photographers do sneak peeks (which is the kind of horrible corporate cuteness phrase I hate) because they need to keep there on-line presence current but can’t be arsed doing a great big blog post.   I reality I never do big posts because I am enough of a realist to know that almost nobody has any interest in my musings.   I am only doing this post because I noticed that It had been nearly 2 months since my last (confession, no wrong situation) post and I was worried that couples may think I wasn’t busy enough, or lazy or dead.   In fact I am only two of those three things.

However, I then realised that these images are actually really good and that I am actually a hugely talented wedding photographer who should really be charging much more for my services than I do.   But my job is actually pretty easy (or I make it look easy) and made even easier when couples give me wedding days like this one to cover.  Filled with humour and colour, stuffed full of wonderful wee details and packed out with folk having fun.  There’s also a “surprise” appearance by The Secret Opera Singers.

Julia and Gavin were married at Langton Church in Gavinton and had their reception and the beautiful Wedderburn Castle Barns.
