Gourock Wedding

I first meet Mo at a wedding that she was the ceremonies officer and I was the photographer, since then we have worked together at other weddings. As Mo has done hundreds of weddings and worked with many photographers when she asked me to be her wedding photographer it was a great honour.

I have met up with Mo and Scott on several occasions and you can tell they are a happy couple and are made for each other, they made it clear they were looking for a fun wedding with lots of laughter and nothing too formal. With Mo and her family being from the West of Scotland they support Rangers and Scott and his family from the East of Scotland supporting Hearts they have a friendly rivalry.

Both Mo and Scott’s have elderly relatives that unfortunately can’t travel so they decided to have the best of both worlds with the ceremony in Gourock and the reception in Edinburgh (with a wedding cake in both places).

Despite the weather it didn’t damper the spirits, and after a fun ceremony with laughter and (happy) tears, we managed to get a short break in the weather and got out to take some photos before the rain started again. As a regular Gourock wedding photographer, the scenery really is breathtaking.

During the speeches, Mo’s father did an “unexpected” speech and presented Scott with a present, when Scott unwrapped the gift, there was the biggest cheer and laughter as in Scott’s hand was a brick with the word Rangers written on it – 1-0 to the West of Scotland.

After the meal and first cake cutting it was over to Edinburgh for the reception at Prestonfield Golf Club. It wasn’t long until it was time to cut the second wedding cake of the day followed by the bride and groom’s first dance. There were lots of smiling and laughter throughout the evening as well as a very busy dance floor.

Cartland Bridge Hotel Wedding

As a regular Cartland Bridge Hotel wedding photographer, I love the way you can create such beautiful couple pictures amongst the 19 acres of woodland. The Cartland Bridge Hotel is situated in Lanarkshire and with under an hour from both Glasgow and Edinburgh makes it is an ideal venue.

It was a fun wedding, I got to hang out with the groom and his ushers and capture the moments of them getting ready with a lot of laughter and drinking to settle the nerves.

The ceremony itself was delayed as there was a parade happening in the town and the bride struggled to get to the venue, so this just added to the tension within the room, but she eventually got there much to the relief of the groom. It was a beautiful ceremony which was watched by over 100 friends and family, there were tears and smiles all round. After the ceremony was finished the ushers surprised the bride and groom by performing a number of songs.

We then had the opportunity to take the bride and groom around the 19 acres of woodland for some alone time and capture some couple photos of their day, even though they were a bit reluctant at the start they thanked us afterwards.

After the meals became the speeches and the best man produced the best speech I have witnessed by a best man, he surprised the bride and groom by getting his guitar and performing a hilarious song. After the evening guest arrived the bride and groom cut the wedding cake with a sword, and instead of the traditional style wedding cake this one was a unique cheese and pork pie wedding cake. The happy couple along with the guest danced the night away to a variety of music ranging from traditional Scottish Ceilidh to up to date chart music.
