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! :)
