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.
