Isle of Islay Wedding Photography with Julie & Sascha

To say it was blustery on Islay last weekend would be an understatement to say the least, it was absolutely howling all day even to the point of finding it hard to stay on your feet at times! Did this put my lovely couple from Melbourne off getting married in Scotland ... no chance.

Julie and Sascha had chosen Islay for their wedding as they share a love for Malt Whisky, so where else would you get married? Finlaggen was the setting they chose for the ceremony, this is an island on Loch Flaggen that was home to the Clan Macdonald, the Lord of Isles in the 12th century.... a very pretty setting when the sun is out! Then it was onto Kilchoman Distillery for a whisky tasting and to warm up after being blown about on the Loch. We then decided to go to Mackie Bay on the West Coast only a few minutes drive from the distillery hoping to create a few portrait photographs on the beach with the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop ... do you see that rather black cloud in the photographs? Well we couldn't have timed it worse really, we had about 3 minutes on the beach before we were hit by the squall that throw sand, hailstones and storm force winds at us, I still managed to get the photos I wanted but less stress & sand and more time is always beneficial! It was then time to retreat to the warmth and comfort of the Port Charlotte Hotel a fantastic little hotel that served up a magnificent meal for everyone and rather a lot of whisky for Julie, Sascha and their wedding guests!

Despite the weather trying its best to hide Islay for large parts of the day, this truly was a memorable day, Julie and Sascha and their four guests were great fun and took everything in their stride that I think has come out wonderfully well in the photographs.

29 Private Members Club Wedding Photography with Lynsey & David

It had been a few years since I was last at 29 private Members Club in Glasgow's Merchant Square, so it was nice to be back to photograph Lynsey and David's wedding last weekend. We had met earlier in the year where we discussed the possibility of capturing portrait photos later in the day around dusk taking in the city lights around the Modern Art Gallery. Even at the end of April the days are becoming quite long in Scotland as sunset wasn't until just before 9pm, so we ventured into the cold evening air after the first dance had been completed.

Unfortunately the overhead lighting that is up in Merchant Square around Christmas had been taken down but adding a few of my own lights and making sure we created the photos at the right time of day, I think made for some very memorable photos for Lynsey & David to look back on.

If you were a guest at the wedding and you would like to see a few more, please get in touch.

Nick.

Mar Hall Hotel Wedding Photography with Kristen and Allan

Well what a way to start the wedding season off, cracking weather, great venue, fantastic couple and guests, it couldn't have been better.

Despite the very damp spring like conditions we had running up to Kristen & Allan's wedding day, last Saturday was very much more like summer, I even got a little bit sun burnt! Again Mar Hall Hotel did a fantastic job of looking after Kristen, Allan and all their guests well into the wee small hours.

Here are a few of favourite photos from the day, if you were a guest at the wedding and would like to see a few more, please get in touch.
