Claire & Neal, Broxmouth Park, Dunbar | Wedding Photography

A bride who loves Art Deco. A groom who loves music. Two families full of warmth and love. Add some close friends, a beautiful venue, a humanist ceremony, a (wet) walk through the woods and a lot of careful planning and preparation - and you have the recipe for Claire and Neal's perfect wedding day!

Claire's brother surprised her by wearing a kilt, despite his insistance he wouldn't. She was thrilled!

A friend of the family had made Claire's jewellery.


The groom checking over his speech before dinner.

Claire had made bracelets for all the female wedding guests as wedding favours.
The men's favours reflected the spirit of their travels... literally.
Sweet trees instead of flower centre pieces. Pretty AND tasty!

"I would like you all to stand and raise your glasses"... This flowergirl had a great sense of humour!

Claire and Neal, thank you so much for having us there with you on your amazing day. From the first time I met you both it felt like I had known you forever, you are both such warm, genuine people.
We wish you a lifetime of happiness and love and look forward to showing you the rest of the photos soon!

Nicola & Graeme, St Mary's Parish Church and Elphinstone Tower, East Lothian | Wedding Photographs

Sometimes we meet brides for whom wedding planning seems to be a natural skill. Brides who love the research, planning and hard work to make their dreams and ideas become a reality. Who think about and plan every small detail, yet make it all seem so effortless. When we met Nicola, we knew that was her to a tee.
All her (and Graeme's!) hard work paid off, and all went perfectly to plan... save for the rain during the drinks reception and the Best Man fainting during the ceremony!

We had a blast capturing the day. As an added bonus, we had the pleasure of working with Steve and Stuart from Cherry Tree Films again.

Here are a few photos from their fantastic day - keep an eye out for the sweetest pageboy and flowergirl (and THOSE shoes...)

Nicola had bought pearl necklaces and earrings for all her bridesmaids.
And Graeme got it just right with his pearl bracelet present for Nicola

See what I mean about attention to detail? VW Campervan cufflinks to match the ushers' wedding transport!

The Faberge egg, used to carry the rings, was made by a friend of the couple

Nicola and Graeme, we so loved capturing your special day! Thank you for having us there with you and for being so much fun to be around.
We hope you have enjoyed this little preview and look forward to showing you the rest of the photos soon!
