Jingle all the way...

The holiday starts here for First Light. We'll be closed between Christmas and New Year and will be back in the office on 7th January 2016.
Thank you to all our wonderful clients, colleagues and friends who have been such a great part of the year that's gone.

I'm off to spend some time with these two...

Winter wonderland wedding

I was reminded of this stunning Christmassy wedding marquee set-up recently and thought I would share again (the more long-term readers of this blog, might remember this wedding from back in 2011).
Carnival Chaos, Tower Productions, Wilde Thyme and Laura Eberst were commissioned to create an Enchanted Forest design for the dining marquee - what they created was simply incredible; Trestle tables set up with wintry Scottish countryside details, candles, moss, pine cones, snowy branches and wooden place name holders. Around the edges of the marquee were small wintry trees and silhouettes of deer and birds of prey. The full moon backdrop and the blue lighting added perfectly to the winter nighttime atmosphere. 
The perfect setting for a Winter wonderland wedding.

How stunning is this marquee? I'm off to add some blue lighting, deer and bare branches to my livingroom...

Emma & Romain, Dunkeld Cathedral and home | Wedding Photographs

October is such a wonderful month for weddings - The fantastic colours and light are enough to make a photographer's heart sing.
Emma and Romain's Scottish/ French wedding had all the gorgeousness of the season, all the charm of the French and all the fun of a good Scottish knees-up.

The cathedral grounds gave us a perfect backdrop for our photo session.

The wedding reception was held at Emma's family's farm.

If the bride says "I want to get on the wall", then we say "Amazing! Go for it!"

The dining marquee was a packed with autumnal beauty in the shape of leaves, shells, corn, twigs and candles. Oh, and a tree.

These beautiful wooden place names were made by Emma's friend Rosanna Clare.

Luggage tags and wooden branches were the perfect alternative to a table plan.

The wedding cake was made of layered cheeses, which were cut up and served alongside the dessert buffet.

Emma and Romain had created little notes for all the guests to help the English/ French conversations flow a little easier.

Love this very tempting dessert buffet.

Emma and Romain, we had such a fantastic time photographing your wedding! Thank you again for having us there and for all the laughs - we can't wait to show you the full set of photos soon.
