I'm not a Wedding Fayre regular type of photographer, in fact the Òran Mór Wedding Fayre is the only one I've ever done! :) This was the third and just like the previous two, a very laid back affair with even more laid back suppliers. Loads of 'soon to be married' couples turned up to check out everyone's offerings, grab a cheeky glass of bubbles and take in some of the awesome live music! Here's a blast of images taken from throughout the day! May be you're in it! :)
I initially met Chelsea & Jesse at the wonderful Òran Mór wedding open day, sometime later they reached out to me to enquire about me capturing their big day! They'll actually be married at the awesome Òran Mór in the Winter of 2019! We met up for our pre-wedding shoot (which is included in my price) and it was feeeeezing! On the plus side the sun and Chelsea and Jesse's obvious connection with each other shone through.
Top couple, loads of fun and here are some of their shots :)
So John & Heathers big day arrived! My first port of call was to join Heather who was getting ready at the Hilton Grosvenor which is literally a 100m from the Òran Mór accompanied by mum and bridesmaids it was all guns blazing in there with the girls all beautifying themselves for the upcoming ceremony! John got ready at home and then joined his parents to add his finishing touches who were also at the Hilton Grosvenor. After capturing that I headed back over to the wonderful Òran Mór for the ceremony to wait for Heathers arrival and then onto capture the rest of their big day there. The Òran Mór is such a unique venue, so grand, colourful, quirky and situated idyllically in Glasgows west end for couples wanting that urban city wedding feel to their day. Perfect for professional couple John & Heather anyway who live and work very close to it. The atmosphere of the whole day was very relaxed obviously stemming from how laid back both John & Heather are! Top couple and a class wedding.
I met Heather at the Oran Mor wedding open day in Glasgow and had a great little chat to her regarding her big day. Herself and husband to be Duncan have gone all spontaneous and given themselves 3 months to organise everything ! They're doing it all under one roof in the absolutely stunning Alexander House, Auchterarder in mid July.
After our little chat and a quick flick through my albums Heather (who was flying solo due to a certain football game lol) went off to discuss everything with Duncan. They decided to take me up on my offer of a free couple shoot, which allows them to see if I am indeed the man for the job and more importantly that we all got on well enough to proceed to booking stage.
When we met for the couple shoot they were dressed in a somewhat vintage fashion, in great spirits and raring to go ! That being said it was a very lively shoot with plenty of laughs. (I must say though, all of the couples I've worked with up until now have been really cool and I'm yet to experience a 'Bridezilla' touch wood :) )
Here are some images from the shoot, we walked all the way down to the Roman Bridge by Strathclyde Park this time which was great. I've since delivered the full collection to both Heather & Duncan and they have decided to proceed with the booking, I think the worst part for me is the time from sending the pictures to receiving a decision, it could totally go either way as photography is so subjective, I'm really pleased they chose me though, it'll be a fantastic day I'm sure :)
