Angela & Gary's wedding at Culcreuch Castle

10th March 2014
...and we're back ! Back after a month or so from Weddings. I'd deliberately left a few months without any bookings to chill and plan the year ahead... but we're back with a bang with what was a brilliant wedding.

Another new venue as well... so it was the first time I'd shot any wedding photography at Culcreuch Castle up by Fintry, but not before I'd caught up with Angela, the girls and her folks in Kirkintilloch.
I had an hour or so there, before heading up to Fintry to set up and catch up with Gary & the fellas.

We actually arrived at roughly the same time, so by the time I'd unloaded my gear, the guys had checked in and dumped their bags.

Before too long the Kirky gang arrived with the bride in a great VW Camper... the wind hadn't died down at all (it was howling a gale) so we made the best possible (and fastest) use of outside shots and got the girls inside to be ready for the ceremony.

Everything went to plan, a lovely service, some quick photos outside (I asked nicely for everyone to stay outside for just one photo) before we used one of the lounges inside the Castle for the rest of the formal photos.

After giving everyone a 10 minute comfort break, Angela & Gary were happy to try a few quick photos outside... well what's the point of having a beautiful backdrop like we had and not using it!? lol

Our newly weds were excellent, they wanted some nice outside photos and did what they had to do to get some. A brilliant couple to work with.

Thanks to Douglas the best man too , for being photographer's assistant and holding my light that would have blown back to East Lothian had I just placed it on it's stand !

A great day was topped up with a great reception, braw band and a fun Photo Booth session for half an hour. I don't even think anyone noticed me walking around the dance floor with fake moustache and googly glasses on trying to drum up interest :) I must have looked too normal.

So here's to the new Mr & Mrs Miller... a great couple of newly weds.

Oh yeah , we did a fun Photo Booth session as well... that was a giggle :)

The full portfolio is available now in our Gallery section... but you might have to wait until the happy couple tell you the password :)
