W is for...Weddings on a Folksy Friday!

How apt that this Friday is my 'W' week! FINALLY I get a whole blog post to commit to weddings, my favourite subject! It's only right that I use this Friday's blog post to tell you about my weekend, which was spent, not surprisingly, at a wedding - shooting pics of the lovely Colin and Dina as they took their vows at St Cuthbert's Parish Church, followed by a reception at the one and only Edinburgh Castle.

I knew the day was going to be good when I arrived at Dina's flat, her hair in curlers, a big grin on her face, and I was asked to take my shoes off...I've never really thought about it before, but having your shoes off and wandering around a home you've not been to before is perhaps the most relaxing thing you could do. I immediately felt welcomed, comfortable and part of the day. As the lovely Karen Blaney busied herself with Dina's gorgeous hair-do ( and the florists carefully delivered the stunning flowers, we were serenaded by Dina's father, a professional jazz pianist, as he practised away on the piano in the living room.

Congratulations to Colin and Dina. Their autumnal wedding, despite being somewhat chilly (!), was such a happy occasion and one that I was thrilled to be a part of :)

My Folksy finds this week are, of course, 'W' themed!

  1. Beautiful wedding photos - all those little details. I can imagine they'll be a wonderful momento of the day.

    I love your picks - but I really want those cushions. I bet they're really snuggly :-)

  4. Ah Jen! It is so much fun looking through your pics. I really like them - especially the piano player, and the groom pics. I really like your compositions and use of colour. Congrats, you should be so proud of yourself!
