Elaine & Parin’s Scottish & Indian fused Lochgreen House Hotel Wedding, Troon

Elaine & Parin’s Scottish & Indian fused Lochgreen House Hotel Wedding, Troon

Elaine & Parin chose their Lochgreen House Hotel Wedding venue very well, it is stunning! And on the West coast, in February, meant a West coast sunset!! It did not disappoint. Elaine & Parin were real champs braving the Scottish February weather for us to get some fantastic shots of them on the Troon Golf Course while the sun went down.

We love how Elaine & Parin had two ceremonies to represent both their faiths and heritage and show them coming together. The first a Church of Scotland ceremony and the second a Hindu wedding ceremony – with a fire pit! Both Bride and Groom had two changes of outfits to show their new blended union. Elaine wore a stunning wedding dress and then later changed into a sari to party. Parin looked so handsome in his traditional Indian attire and then changed into a rather fetching kilt for the latter half of the day!

There were so many little touches that brought both heritages together…  There was a quaich during the Church ceremony, Elaine’s Mum homemade all of the shortbread favours, and the menu was both Scottish and Indian inspired. The colours and theme for their wedding day were purple and peacock feathers, so elegant!

The reception kicked off with a Ceilidh band which everyone had such an amazing time at! The band also had their own fused style of mixing traditional ceilidh dancing with modern songs, which was great!

Their signing board was a gorgeous purple watercolour map of the world so that people could sign from where they had travelled from, which was literally all over the world, to witness this marriage!

So, from the luxury of your seat, enjoy!! And many congratulations to Elaine & Parin!

Terri & Joseph’s Intimate & Musical St Mungo Museum Wedding, Glasgow

Terri & Joseph’s Intimate & Musical St Mungo Museum Wedding, Glasgow

Kristeen literally shrieked in my ear when I told her we had booked an awesome couple who both worked in musical theatre in London’s West End. Shrieked I tell you. Can you tell she is a total musicals geek?

My lovely friend Marj, who is Terri’s good friend, suggested we meet to see if we were a good fit to be their wedding day photographers. As soon as we met it was as if we had been friends all along. I love Terri and Joe, they are the sweetest couple, and you can tell they are lobsters – musical lobsters – for life. I love how emotional Joe is and that he wasn’t afraid to admit that he was going to cry hard on the wedding day.

And it was the best wedding day – we had SO much fun!

For a bright yet intimate feel, having a St Mungo Museum wedding is a great idea for a venue!  It has a lovely ceremony room and the location, right next to the Cathedral and Necropolis, made it a fantastic location for photos.

Terri, Joseph and all their guests then had a lovely walk down to George Square where they were having their reception at Browns Restaurant, but not before we did some great group shots right in George Square!

There was so much laughter, joy and happy tears throughout the whole day, Kristeen and I never stopped smiling from behind the camera. I think this truly shows in the photos that everyone there was overjoyed for the happy couple and that they too felt so lucky to be marrying one another.

These are some of our favourite photos we have taken, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy them.

Massive congrats to Terri and Joe on their wedding AND on their 1 year anniversary today!! I loved reliving this day and I’m sure their friends and family will too.

Enjoy!!

Katy & Rikki’s Spring Wedding at Moorpark House Hotel

Katy & Rikki’s Spring Wedding at New Kilpatrick Church, Bearsden, Glasgow & Moorpark House Hotel, Ayrshire.

Katy & Rikki were blessed with a gorgeous spring day for their April wedding. We had the pleasure of having the whole day with them, which we love, and got to capture everything including the preparations leading up to the ceremony, and beyond right into the evening’s dancing!

They met at a beer tasting in The Good Spirits Co on Bath Street, Glasgow (they even still have the original tasting menu and ticket framed – cute!!) and that had a place in the theme for the day, whisky & beer! Sounds good to us 🙂

The venue, Moorpark House Hotel, was super! A whole country house to themselves! Well, and their friends and family! The whole venue can be booked, including rooms, making for a very intimate and cozy occasion. The roaring log fire in the snug also helped with that! (We love a fire!)

They booked a band that they seen busking in Glasgow city centre (Tom McGuire & The Brassholes) which is an awesome way to support local and upcoming musicians. We have provided links at the end to everyone who helped make this such a great day for they happy couple and all of their friends and family.

Our favourite shots have to be the confetti shot at the church door, we asked them to provide confetti and they gave us 48 boxes of it!! Yessss! The more confetti the better – as you will see!!

We wish them every happiness for the future, and we know they have already added to this by having had a wee baby girl at the beginning of the year!! Many congratulations to Rikki & Katy and all the very best for the future!

Enjoy the photos!

Fiona & Martin’s Winter Wedding at House for an Art Lover, Glasgow

Fiona & Martin did something outrageous. They planned and executed their awesome wedding in only 12 weeks! Yes, it can be done! They seized the day and decided that this wedding was going to happen, and it all turned out perfectly. Their wonderful son was ring bearer and they had their family and friends all around them as they tied the knot at Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s House for an Art Lover in Bellahouston Park Glasgow. The venue is beautiful and lends itself so well to weddings that you can have the ceremony, dinner and reception all in several stunning rooms throughout the house.

Martin’s very talented and lovely cousin Sorcha May provided music during the signing of the register and at the dinner too.

We also managed to get outside for some bride & groom portraits just as the sun was going down, our favourite time of day so that was a treat for us too.

The speeches were really lovely, especially when Martin got a bit choked up as he announced that he and his new wife have another baby on the way! Kristeen and I both started to tear up too!

After dinner everyone went downstairs to the party where It’s No’ Reel, a smashing ceilidh band, led everyone through some traditional dancing; the guests and us loved it!

We could not be happier to say congratulations to Martin & Fiona! Enjoy the photos!

Kenny & Joanne’s Spring Wedding at Chatelherault Country Park Hunting Lodge, Hamilton

Kenny & Joanne had a beautiful intimate wedding at Chatelherault Country Park within the park’s Hunting Lodge. The venue is beautiful and the weather was great for this Spring wedding too! I always say fotomaki have a hand in with the weather Gods because it always seems to shine on our weddings!
Their wedding ceremony was lovely and sweet, with lots of laughs, a traditional handfasting and a reading from Joanne’s wee niece which was super cute!
The good weather meant we were able to get lots of great outdoor portraits of the newlyweds; we just love doing photos outdoors, it makes a real difference when you have that natural light in play.
Many congratulations to Kenny & Joanne! Enjoy the pictures!

 

Sarah & George’s Wedding Day at the Beautiful Pollokshields Burgh Hall, Glasgow

Sarah & George’s Wedding Day at the Beautiful Pollokshields Burgh Hall, Glasgow
When Sarah and I woke up on the morning of Sarah and George’s wedding it was raining so hard we were worried that we wouldn’t get any outdoor shots, everyone would be soaked through and the day would be ruined. We needn’t have worried. Just at the right time the sun poked through, everyone stayed dry and the whole day was as beautiful as the bride. There was so much laughter and even Sarah and I had trouble holding the tears back. It was a pleasure to photograph Sarah and George’s big day and here is a selection of photos that we feel capture the celebrations perfectly.
