Our 1st Scottish Wedding.....

July 23, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Well this July we were up at 04:30 am, packing all our camera gear into the back of a taxi and heading off  to Birmingham airport

....are we mad ?..... maybe!

...but were we excited about flying up to Scotland to photograph our first 'international' wedding ?

...definitley !

To say we were a little worried about the torrential rain that was showing signs of going nowhere was an understatement.  Our trusted big wedding umbrellas were duely wrapped up and checked in to the hold, for the flight up to Edinburgh.  Despite the hanging around for them at the other end we were very pleased to have them with us, esp. when we were being driven thru the flooded roads outside the airport.  I am not kidding, the water nearly came up to the cars bonnet ! eeek !

We arrived in the coastal town of Montrose with an hour to spare, so we had a chance to explore The Park Hotel, and its surrounding area, where Tammy and Shaun were holding their wedding.  Although the grass proved far to wet to ask guests to stand on, we found Montrose hosts some fab building for photo oppertunities.

So Lee 'borrowed' the groom and his groomsmen from the bar for some pre wedding photos.

While I met up with Tammy, her mum, and the kids getting ready upstairs, with some rose champagne on the go, it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following their civil ceremony, we discovered the wedding weather gods were smiling on us and the rain had stopped for a few hours, this meant we were able to whisk the newly wed Tammy and Shaun off for some lovely wedding photos, without umbarellas !
