I don’t usually mention our weddings on here though this one is certainly worth a few words.

Mid 2017 and I received an email asking if my wedding photography services were available throughout the UK, as with our event photography. Yes we cover anywhere and after some messages regarding thoughts, ideas, locations, styles and content we were booked to cover a wedding at the beautiful location of Loch Lomond.

This was to be a three day job owing to travel and the requested coverage by the bride & groom. They had Kindly paid for our hotel room, in their hotel, and the hotel had placed us not too far from them so that coverage would be simplified. How many hotels actually think like that in advance? I’ve never had it before.

The drive up was a steady 5hrs or so with stops and we got there mid afternoon, to sunshine and a brisk wind over the water. The bride & groom were upbeat, as expected, and once we had dropped our suitcases in the room, I was out and about with my camera for some pre wedding images of them both. The evening meal was beautiful and after just a couple of drinks we retired early before the big day ahead.

We woke to solid mist and a view of around 20 meters in any direction. The view of the Loch was literally non existent, though you could ear all the birds out on it. We maintained a positive outlook on the day which was rewarded around 10am when the sun suddenly started trying to make an appearance. An hour or so later we had blue skies and lovely views with just a slightly cold breeze still in attendance.

Before we knew it the preparations were over and the ceremony was underway. One thing about weddings is that those which are planned correctly run seamlessly and keep us busy 100% of the time. We are constantly capturing formal or candid images throughout the day to provide the contracted ,editorial style, overview expected.

The wedding meal is served, to which we have also been invited to, and a traditional Scottish meal is beautifully delivered and gratefully eaten by all.

A break for some in the bar, some in their rooms and others walking outside soon saw the start of the evening reception. Traditional Scottish dancing mixed with disco and classic, join in, singing saw the night fly by to a successful conclusion.

We had collectively amassed some 2000 images throughout the day and around 80gb of video too. This was all edited and ready for delivery when the Bride & Groom returned from their honeymoon two weeks later. Another set of huge smiles, the constant thank you’s and the range of emotional reactions to our product told us this was yet another successful day. We left them watching the video’s over again and the messages received later that evening reinforced their happiness with our work.

The image below is being used with the kind permission of Mr & Mrs Ketterick. It’s one of their, and indeed our, favourites of the day. The sun had just popped out from behind a cloud and did the honours of lighting them up for me. No flash required.
