When thinking about how to best cheer myself up after all this “weather” we’ve been having, I was looking back on some of the sunnier weddings I’ve done. This absolutely stunner of a day belonged to Rachael & Ben, a couple I loved working with. There are some families that as soon as you meet them, completely adopt you as one of their own – and this is how I felt when I photographed their day. Not as an outsider taking photos, but as one of them documenting the whole experience, from the girls getting made up to the very emotional ceremony and the party afterwards. It’s very special when that happens! Rachael and Ben have Matthew, one of the cutest little boys you’ll see and even though he’s young, you can tell he was thrilled to be watching his parents getting married.
Scotland has never seen this much sun on one day, it did actually feel as if we were somewhere in the Mediterranean or a castle in France. Bright sunlight is actually quite challenging to photograph in, but there were enough drooping willows and natural shade in the gorgeous grounds of MacDonald Houston House Hotel in Uphall, that I didn’t need to worry. The whole day had the atmosphere of the most glamorous celebrity wedding and this little family absolutely stole my heart.
Let some sunny wedding shots brighten up your gloomy week!
