Whimsical Wonderland Wedding : Lochside Wedding

Fiona and Paul’s beautiful Aviemore lochside wedding is featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings today. Thanks to Lou at WWW and our bride Fiona for arranging the feature. The Humanist ceremony was on the banks of Loch an Eilean on the Rothiemurchus Estate with a picnic celebration at Dulnain Village Hall. The groom is a chef and cooked the whole picnic as a gift to thank guests. They had some beautiful DIY touches including a homemade F&P light and makeshift bar made by the bride’s dad. We also got to work with some fellow Wedding Collective suppliers which just makes us super happy every time. Alix and I loved shooting this one and treated ourselves to some tasty scran at old favourite The Old Bridge Inn which is always a winner.

This is my first blog post of the year!! I’ve slapped my own wrists a bit. You’ve totally missed me, I can tell. I’ve missed you too. I’ve also been having MAJOR issues with my website so massive apologies to any couples who have tried to get in touch via my site who haven’t received a response. I’m really not that rude so I hope you saw my social pages. There has been A LOT of loud sweary words. It’s taken a few weeks to sort out but thanks to my sometimes second shooter and actual tech guru Loraine Ross it’s all working now. We’re back to the less angry playlists and on the more familiar (slightly morose) melodic soundtrack!

I’ve missed the chance to also mention a recent feature on the beautiful Junebug Weddings blog. Well technically I’m mentioning it now but you know what I mean. Jennifer and Simon’s secret garden day was a favourite from last summer. They married in a Humanist ceremony in Greenbank Gardens south of Glasgow. Braving the Scottish weather they also had an outdoor ceremony with tipis to party in. I could bang on for hours about how much I loved working with these legends and their big day was a complete dream to shoot. Jennifer’s Hayley Paige dress! Myrtle & Bracken’s bouquets! LOVED IT. There may be a few more images on their wedding gallery here too. Thanks to Fiona for second shooting this one with me.

I’ve also been on a couple of little adventures to Iceland and New York to share with you soon (there are a few images on my instagram page already). So much geology (and free pour alcohol)…I’ve got lots of website updates to catch up on in the coming weeks. Both trips were equally inspiring for completely different reasons and I’m overflowing with ideas but seriously lacking in this time stuff people talk about. Wedding season is gaining momentum but hopefully later in the year I’ll have some time to work on a few personal projects and maybe a bit of a creative collaboration or two. I’ll get there, soon. Promise.

In the meantime I’m all over instagram, facebook etc etc so join me there too as it’s nice to be pals.

Speak soon
