Fiona & Keith, Solsgirth House, Dollar

We were really looking forward to being back at the beautiful Solsgirth House for the wedding of Fiona and Keith, and it turned out to be a great day in every way!
A day full of late summer warmth and sun which turned into a starry night with lots of laughter, tears and surprises along the way.


We arrived just in time to witness an impromptu rendition of "Maggie May" by Fiona and her family!



Meanwhile, the chapel was full to the brim and buzzing with expectation.







Fiona and Keith had chosen to have a humanist ceremony for their wedding.





The sun shone brightly as the newlyweds and their guests exited the chapel.




We took advantage of the beautiful house and grounds to take a few shots of Fiona and Keith





Fiona's beautiful headpiece was made by her friend Isla.






All the female guests were given a pearl bracelet with personalised ribbon tying them up.




While the dining room was cleared for dancing, we had time for another quick photo shoot.


The newlyweds had chosen Jack Johnson's "Better Together" for their first dance.





Towards the end of the night, guests were summoned outside for a spine-tingling performance by the Dollar Academy pipe band, who emerged out of the black night to the great surprise and amazement of all the guests.



Fiona and Keith, we had such a good time at your wedding - there was so much laughter and fun from beginning to end.
We hope you have lovely honeymoon and we look forward to showing you the rest of the photos when you get back!

Jennifer & Craig, Garden Suite, Norton House Hotel, Edinburgh

We were so excited about the wedding of Jennifer and Craig - from our first meeting and from the engagement shoot, we knew they were a fun, great couple who are totally at ease in front of a camera. And when the big day finally came about, everything about it was just perfect!

Jen was getting ready in the Kingdom Suite at Norton House with her bridesmaid



Throughout the morning family and friends would drop in to say hello and wish her luck.








Meanwhile, Craig and his groomsmen were getting ready at Craig's dad's house





What better way to spend a spare 20 minutes, than to have a quick game of football?



The boys proved they are all true Scotsmen!













After the ceremony, we took advantage of the beautiful grounds around Norton House to take some photos of the newlyweds.









Meanwhile guests milled around outside the Garden Suite enjoying drinks and sunshine.

After dinner came three very funny and touching speeches









Craig and Jen took to the dance floor as the new Mr & Mrs Chalmers





As the sun had set, the grounds were lit up in beautiful colours (by lighting designer Calder Sibbald), so we took the newlyweds outside for a few shots.



Craig and Jen - we had such a fantastic time photographing your wedding and have really enjoyed getting to know you.
We wish you all the best for a long and happy marriage and look forward to showing you the rest of the photos when you are back from honeymoon.
