Helen & Matthew, Killearn Kirk and Roman Camp Hotel, Callander

Here is a wedding that makes me smile every time I think of it!
From the very first meeting with Helen, I knew this would be an incredible day; her gentle and positive nature and the lovely plans for the big day.

Helen and Matthew had chosen Roman Camp Hotel in Callander for their wedding, for its intimate, secluded location and the beautiful grounds and interior. And from a photography perspective, they couldn't have chosen better - we loved having gorgeous settings, where ever we looked.

Have a look at this little preview from the day (and see why we fell in love with Helen's beaming smile):

Helen's grandmother's brooch, that she wore attached to her underskirts.

Helen's bouquet was made up of the favourite flowers of the women of both families: Lily of the Valleys, Gerbera, Forget-Me-Nots, White Roses, Freesias and Greenery

Each guest was offered a flower for their buttonhole as they entered the church.

On the way to Roman Camp, we did a quick stop at Lake of Menteith, one of Helen's favourite places.

At Roman Camp we whisked the bride and groom off for a few photos in the stunning grounds.

After a week of full-on rain it was fantastic to see the sun come out, allowing the guests to mingle outside the hotel

Bespoke Hunter wellies - how is that for an awesome wedding present??

Helen and Matthew, we had such a fantastic time at your wedding (when can we do it again, please?) You were so much fun to be around and naturals in front of the camera.
We wish you lots of laughter, love and a long, happy life together.

We hope you are having a fantastic honeymoon and have enjoyed this little preview of the photos!

Alice & Will, St Mary’s Chapel Blairs Museum & Park House, Drumoak

Two weeks ago we headed north to photograph the wedding of Alice and Will - and what a fantastic trip it was! With so many beautiful details and surprises planned, we went a little snap happy... But then, who wouldn't have with elegant horses, beautiful flowers, happy people, a gorgeous couple, funny speeches, a fab first dance and a fireworks finale?
We loved everything about this wedding, and are really excited to share these photos with you:

...thankfully the rain stayed away most of the day and allowed us to take some photos in the beautiful grounds of Park House.

Alice and Will's cake was a tribute to their epic cycle from John O'Groats to Land's End - dressed as The Incredibles!

If you are having an official leave after the reception, why not do it in style?

Alice and Will, we loved your wedding! Thank you for having us there and for being so much fun to photograph.
We hope you have enjoyed this little preview and look forward to showing you the rest of the photos!
