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!

Bethan & Don’s Autumn Wedding at Logie Country House, Aberdeen

Bethan & Don had a fabulous Autumn wedding at Logie Country House in September and we were honoured to capture it for them! The venue is beautiful and the staff were great, everything ran like clockwork. They also had the benefit of having the whole of Logie House for the weekend and with 13 seriously luxurious bedrooms it was like a great family & friends holiday too! We can’t recommend Logie House enough!

Bethan and her family & friends made so many of the little touches and details themselves it was so awesome to see that everyone had pitched in. Bethan’s Mum made her brooch bouquet, Don’s Mum made the wedding stationary and Bethan’s sister made lots of origami paper cranes which are for good luck!

Bethan & Don are a lovely lovely couple, our kinda peeps. They had their first dance to Biffy Clyro, they walked up to the top of a field so we could photography them with Bennachie in the background, then Bethan got a piggy back down! Bethan also had an amazing second dress which she wore to the reception.

They also have a wee one on the way so we could not be happier for them when we say congratulations to Bethan & Don, lang may yer lum reek! 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.

Petra & John’s Autumnal Outdoor Wedding at Crathes Castle & Craighaar Hotel in Aberdeen

Petra & John had a beautiful outdoor wedding in October in Scotland. I know what you’re thinking, October? Scotland? But they must have had a word with someone as it was a stunning day! It couldn’t have been more perfect. The setting was beautiful, the lovely grounds of Crathes Castle in Aberdeenshire. The flowers were still in bloom, yet the leaves had turned to a gorgeous shade of Autumn red. It really was a pleasure to capture their day for them.

Enjoy the pictures below, and many congratulations to John & Petra!

Claire & Ewen: An engagement

Our beautiful friends Claire & Ewen are getting married this September. They took us out to see the spot atop a hill where they will be wed, what better place for their engagement portraits!
