January, February and March were relatively quiet, mainly due to the weather (and the darkness!)! I had a few shoots here and there but I was mainly working on websites (web design clients). Now it feels like nature has flicked a switch and everything is green, the rapeseed is out, daffodils and tulips everywhere and the creative spirit is well underway!
Gosh, the last 3 weeks have been interesting!
An amazing wedding in Fife at Craigsanquhar House Hotel, a gorgeous wedding at Harburn House near West Calder, a pregnancy body paint photo session, a pregnancy shoot, 2 pre-wedding sessions, a corporate photography client in Edinburgh, publication in a magazine, and 2 lifestyle photography shoots!!!
I hardly have time to catch my breath! And in the midst of all that I am designing 2 wedding albums, help my husband dig out the garden and have – Hallelujah – my first dishwasher installed in the kitchen!
I think, April is my favourite month so far!
I think 2011 is going to be very exciting with lots of photos and personal projects.
Off to Airth Castle now for a pre-wedding photography session with lots of ideas!
Oh, and Happy Easter to everybody
We spent an amazing day in Fife yesterday taking photographs of Jayne and Andrew’s wedding at Craigsanquhar House Hotel near St Andrews in Fife. The weather couldn’t have been better! Sunshine all day long! It was very warm and there were amazing spring flowers everywhere!
I spent the morning before the ceremony with Jayne and her bridesmaids, and Mark took photographs of the guys getting ready in a B&B only a couple of miles away.
It was fantastic to see Jayne again. Mark and I took photographs of Jayne’s mum’s wedding nearly 5 years ago and it was fab to see John and Ruth again. There were quite a few known faces at the wedding and it was particularly nice to see that the babies who were in their prams 5 years ago now ran around wild, chasing balloons!
This is just a little preview, more wedding photographs to follow soon!
First: John and Ruthxx
The first time, I took photographs of Zephram, he was only 6 months old. Now, at 17 months, he is a confident toddler! I met with Rowenna, his mum, in Edinburgh and we just “played around” a bit, taking photos and watching Zeph exploring the world.
Jayne and Andrew are getting married next weekend at Craigsanquhar House Hotel near Cupar, in Fife. I met Jayne and Andrew for the first time at Jayne’s mum’s wedding about 4 years ago. Jayne and Andrew have been together for a while and are tying the knot at this lovely country residence. We have visited the venue today to get a first impression. Elizabeth, the wedding coordinator, showed us round. We were very impressed with this wedding venue! It has an amazing stair case with lots of light from above.
The hotel is surrounded by mature gardens and with a bit of luck, more flowers will be in bloom by next weekend.
Here are few first impressions of this lovely venue in Fife:
Our friend Douglas Thomson is a Landrover fan through and through. He had this idea about 5 years ago, to build a Landrover Defender from scratch. He has been collecting parts ever since, and started building his “baby” about a year ago.
He took Pegasus to his maiden voyage today in the fields where the Scottish Landrover Owners Club met for a day of muddy fun. What a GORGEOUS V8! You should hear the sound of it!!!
Jacky and Steven are getting married soon at Harburn House, West Calder. I have known Jacky for a while, through previous web design work, and now she was looking for a photographer for her wedding. Jacky and Steven have opted for a CD only wedding photography package, as they are emigrating soon and don’t want to carry a heavy wedding album abroad.
We met Jacky and Steven at Almondell Country Park, near Broxburn to get to know Steven too, and to take some lovely photographs of the two, before their wedding later in April.
Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue have been a client for some time. We have taken photographs of their training rooms just last year, and this time, we updated a few staff portraits for the successful business in Edinburgh.
