John & Sharon | Pre-Wedding Shoot

Sharon booked me as her DJ and in her own words had followed my Facebook page for a long time! Months after booking me as her DJ she found out I was also a photographer and enquired to see if I'd do both! As it was one of my regular venues, who actually recommend me as their DJ for weddings I agreed, I must be mad! haha! Having met John & Sharon now I'm actually really looking forward to the challenge but not so much the following day! 

Walked, talked, laughed and took some pictures, top couple and Saturday is going to be a good one!

Joanne & David | The Hendersons | Lochside House Hotel

I met Joanne at one of the awesome Òran Mór wedding open days, had a few emails and met up for their 'Remove the Awkward' pre-wedding shoots! Normally I'd hit a quiet spot in the woodlands but today for some reason I thought we could change it up a little and go down to the lake down at Strathy. I thought it would have been 'quiet(ish)' I was wrong! There were humans everywhere and Joanne was in her own words 'MORTIFIED' haha! David on the other hand just went with it proving he could indeed be a contender for Glasgow's next model haha go on my son! :) We chatted, walked, tried to pretend it wasn't busy and got down to business, the results were pretty sweet if I don't mind saying so myself! Next stop, their big day at Lochside House Hotel Spa & Lodges | Luxury Wedding Venue Ayrshire!

Grabbed a few shots of the venue and it's grounds in the beautiful sunshine, seriously it was a beautiful day! Into one of the lodges for Joanne's transformation into one top draw looking bride and as per normal I could waffle all day about the happenings of the day but let's have some pictures tell the story, over n'out :)

P.S Working alongside John, Tony, Mr DJ Fresh Entertainment himself and all the organisers and staff at Lochside House Hotel Spa & Lodges | Luxury Wedding Venue Ayrshire made the day that much more enjoyable, well played guys! :)

Helen-Anne & David | City Session

So on David and Helen-Anne's big day we started off with a lovely warm overcast cast day, I did some prep shots with Helen-Anne, got some lovely architecture shots of St. Andrews Cathedral, guests arriving and then some of the lads all dappered up!

We had great plans of burning it around Glasgow in a top of the range Jaguar to a few different locations around Glasgow for our portrait session, but, as soon as the ceremony finished, the heavens opened! It wasn't just raining, it was raining raining! Throughout the rest of their day we grabbed shots where we could in and around their venue Trades Hall of Glasgow but we had a back up plan :) A post wedding 'without rain' portrait session.

I drove to Helen-Anne and Davids place in Glasgow's West End where they were waiting looking awesome all dressed up for their wedding again 6 weeks later. Helen-Anne's Dad Iain drove us around Glasgow in his passenger seat weight restriction Audi (Legend lol) and her mum Philomena acted as the best photographers assistant you can wish for (Thank you Philomena!)

So relaxed and too many laughs with class people, here are some of the shot!

Jemma & Stephen | The Gallagher's | Ross Priory, Alexandria

Jemma and Stephen who work and live in Bristol found me via the power of Google I do believe! We had an ace couple shoot, I actually really enjoy the couple shoots as there's no better way to get over the 'awkward' that's inevitable when we first meet up and then to grab some shots to document the 'before we were even married' thing!

Jemma and Stephen had chosen the beautiful Ross Priory as the place where they were to be wed, having worked there on numerous occasions as a DJ it was one venue I'd really wanted to document a wedding at so I was stoked to get the opportunity.

It was a grey and moody start to the day but I always feel Scotland can be even more majestic in these conditions, while I realise most brides wish for sunshine and warm weather it definitely doesn't always make for the best photos! With Jemma being English and Stephen Scottish it was a great laugh watching the English lads familiarise themselves with proper Scottish attire, great they embraced it and indeed pulled it off very well. Well played lads! lol

An all round superb day, surrounded by awesome people. A special mention to Claire the humanist too who really adds a very special ingredient to the overall feel of a ceremony, what that ingredient is, I do not know, but I somehow think all her couples are very happy they chose her to marry them, good arrows Claire :) And Strange Bru the live band, class!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Gallagher, I hope it was cold and rainy in Bali, you lucky sods! :)
