The dress and the suits: Paul & Chelsea, Mayculter house hotel

The dress and the suits: Paul & Chelsea, Mayculter house hotel

I have never photographed the same dress twice! Nope, never. Every bride, in my mind picks the perfect dress for them. I have never thought “Nah, that is not the right dress for you”. Chelsea dress was no different, it was perfect! The amazing Ian Stuart dress with a slight alteration on sleeves was perfect. As for Paul, well, when I seen him at first wearing his Marc Darcy tweed suit, he looked epic. I love a kilt but I have to admit, the tweed suit is making me think about my own wedding and if I should wear a kilt or a tweed suit.

The day was shaping up to be hot and sunny! The weather in April has been unpredictable, one week it was a foot of snow then a couple of days later 20c+ temperatures.

The wedding was at the beautiful Maryculter House hotel and always lovely catching up with the fantastic Peter Walker who recently moved from Meldrum house to Mayculter. The room was set up (Game of thrones theme), the outside seats were full of guests and it was time to go. Chelsea’s own grandfather was marrying them and what a special moment that was, who wonderful to have your own grandfather marry you.

From the start to the very end, they day was wonderful. With amazing food (banquet style) to the evening dancing, it was epic. As surprisingly, with a free bar the whole day. the guests behaved themselves.

2018 End of year review

2018 End of year review

You got to have a laugh! Are laughter and love not the two most important things in life?? It makes everything perfect, brings it all together.

I love doing these end of year reviews. There is something amazing about going through all the weddings from the year and reliving them all over again. Sometimes I miss moments I have captured, as the editing and “Technical stuff” takes over. Looking over all the images again, brings back the fun we all had.

I can not thank my amazing clients/friends enough for choosing me to capture their special day and allowing me to do what I love. 2018 has been incredible! I have met some really amazing people and being able to spend the time I do with each couple makes the big day so much more exciting. Being able to capture these split second moments in time for you all to enjoy for the rest of your life makes all the working hours, driving and living off coffee so worth it.

To every couple that booked me this year, I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH!


2019 marks the 10th anniversary since I photographed my first wedding and I hear photographers who hit this mark tend to go down one of two routes.

  1. Staying on the same path, doing the same things over and over where it just becomes a job and lose their creativity and passion.

  2. Change that direction, push the creativity limits, learn more and keep rising to the top!!

I am going down route number 2! I am pushing my creativity and challenging myself. I want to be the best photographer I can be and I still want to love what I do for the next 10 years!

I am excited for what the year ahead holds for me. It’s going to be epic and I cannot wait to share it all with you!
