News and musings from a wedding photographer in Scotland

First Dance

Music at your wedding Some people rehearse their first dance, others cringe at the thought of performing in front of their family and guests. Here’s a list from The Washington Post of the most popular wedding songs in America in case you need inspiration. Interesting to see that Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ tops the list! … Continue reading First Dance

Favourite wedding venues part 3 – Glencorse House

There’s a unique atmosphere about weddings at Glencorse House. It may be the team that work there to make every wedding run so smoothly, or it may just be Paul’s catering skills! More likely it’s the setting, hidden away from the outside world yet just minutes from Penicuik and Edinburgh. I believe that it’s unique … Continue reading Favourite wedding venues part 3 – Glencorse House

Favourite Wedding Venues – Mar Lodge

I first went to Mar Lodge last year – and the second time I visited was a month later! Those two visits confirmed my view that Mar Lodge is one of the great undiscovered (by me) venues in Scotland. Originally built as a hunting lodge for the Duke and Duchess of Fife in 1895, it … Continue reading Favourite Wedding Venues – Mar Lodge

Favourite Wedding Venues Wedderburn Castle

Wedderburn Castle, in the Scottish Borders near Duns, is one of my favourite venues to visit. It’s not just the stately building, the magnificent rooms and grounds. There’s also a lovely feeling to the place, of relaxation and care. Not to mention the food! They are one of the few venues I know that employ … Continue reading Favourite Wedding Venues Wedderburn Castle

My favourite Scotland wedding photographs of 2013

If all the photographs in my new wedding gallery were from the same wedding, it would be the perfect wedding! (At least from a wedding photographers point of view…..) Last week I posted about the ‘look of love’ that I capture at each wedding. Those are the full page photographs in any album. But there’s … Continue reading My favourite Scotland wedding photographs of 2013

My favourite documentary wedding photographs of 2012

These are just a very small selection of my favourite documentary wedding photographs from last year. I’ve chosen them because of the expressions on the subjects faces, whether it’s bewilderment at the fancy dress usher / parking attendant, the look of love, fun and relief between a happy couple; or just the atmosphere of the … Continue reading My favourite documentary wedding photographs of 2012

Professional Wedding Photography

My colleague Steven Taylor wrote on his blog recently about the importance of hiring a professional photographer for your wedding, rather than relying on family and friends to do the job. He writes “There were always amateur photographers who could deliver, sometimes, great pictures… every now and then. It was always true that professional photographers … Continue reading Professional Wedding Photography

Old documentary wedding photographs

I was going through my archive of photographs recently, and was pleased to see how my style of wedding photography has evolved. Back in 2003, at Claire and Ken’s wedding in Kelso, I was practising the same documentary photography skills that I use today. I didn’t call myself ‘Unobtrusive, Unposed, Unique’ in those days, but … Continue reading Old documentary wedding photographs

The Importance of Photography

This is an old advert for Kodak about the importance of photographs. It’s a shame the old giant of photography is seeking protection from bankruptcy, but the message from the film – the importance of photographs – is as strong as ever. You can watch it on YouTube here
