Shona & Tina had their day in the beautiful town of St Andrews. We started the day off with bridal prep in the Fairmont hotel and unusually I had the pair of them together but once hair and make up started it was off to different parts of the room so the reveal would be a surprise later in the day. It's not often I get such an impressive atrium so I used it to it's full advantage and managed to photograph both the shoes and the dresses in there.
The ceremony itself was at Rufflets which is a beautiful hotel although like a lot of venues, has predominantly back-lighting which makes things a touch tricky. Although short, the ceremony went without a hitch and was facetimed back to Tina's relatives in Australia.
For the majority of weddings I usually ask for 30 minutes or so for the couple shoot, this gives me time to get those all important photos but also gives you time with your guests. This day was different in that there was several hours gap between the ceremony and the evening reception so I took full advantage ans used the grounds of Rufflets then we went to the beach, harbour and a little exploration to photograph as much as we could. Spotting (see what I did?) two dalmatians on the beach I asked the owners if they would let me borrow the dogs for a few photos and they were happy to oblige.
After a quick outfit change we embarked on the second quicker photoshoot which was more local and utilised the cobbled streets and then the evening reception started with some canapes and some really hilarious speeches before the cake cutting and dancing began.
A beautiful, fun filled day and one I'm really honoured to have been a part of.
Here's a selection of my favourite photos.
