I arrived a little early before heading up to the ceremony in the woods so I managed to capture a few images of Lindsay getting her make up done by the very professional make up artist Leeane Fraser who done a marvelous job of Lindsay.
Guest Arriving at Ceremony
Bridal Party and Ring Bearer Arrive
The beautiful bride is dropped off by the car and begins the walk to the ceremony whilst the ring bearer duly does his duty, how cute is he?
Groom Waiting & First Look
Russell waited patiently for the arrival of his stunning bride, and then she appears.
In lovely weather the ceremony began.
Lindsay had done a magnificent job of preparing the rings to go with the natural feel of the wedding I had decided to take a different approach to shooting the rings from my usual close ups and shot them to echo the natural theme to the wedding.
Thanking The Guests
After the Ceremony Russell & Lindsay took the time to thank all of their guests with lots of hugs, kisses and laughs.
Walk To The House
After thanking the guests it was a nice walk to the house for some light refreshments led by the piper with some opportunistic photo’s of the bride & groom in the house grounds.
The Group shots were broken down to British family, British friends, Dutch family, Dutch friends, All together and then those dressed in kilts, in no particular order.
Throwing The Bouquet
Bride & Groom Private Shoot
The Bride & Groom Private Shoot took place at an old ruined mill and foot bridge over the river, with time to spare we headed up to The Rest and Be Thankful to get some wide angle landscape portraits done to make the most of the scenery on our doorstep.
Arriving At The Reception Venue
The reception was held at Strachur village hall and was a fantastic venue for the bride & groom to hold it in offering two halls, kitchen, toilets, and a chill out lounge.
Up next was the best man and groom’s speeches.
Cutting The Cake
Cutting the cake followed the meals.
The First Dance
The bride & groom took to the dance floor for the first dance and money pinning.
Groom & Best Man
I managed to get 10 minutes with the groom and best man to get some shots of them together done.
Bride, Bridesmaid & Friends
And also with the bride, bridesmaid and some friends.
And now the party begins, please note for artistic reasons some of the guests may be blurred, this was deliberate to show movement during the dancing and not poor photo quality.
