I know, I know... ANOTHER sneak peek, but I have to get this one in there because I'm so excited about these photos and this GORGEOUS couple (who just happen to be two of the best people I know xx). More to follow soon!
The lovely people at the Best Scottish Weddings magazine have featured the Edinburgh Castle photo from Colin & Dina's wedding not just in their Winter issue, but also in the Spring edition too (out now!)...
Rachel and Neil's February wedding was a wonderful day from start to finish. The smiles and laughter - it was just such a lovely occasion, I'm still grinning when I look through the photos now!
Readers of my blog may remember Rachel and Neil's engagement shoot from the start of this year, when I mentioned a special element of their day that I couldn't wait to see - the venue. You see, Rachel and Neil chose THE best venue in the whole wide world - Craighouse Campus in Edinburgh, which just happens to be the same place that Mr O and I tied the knot back in 2007! :)
That spectacular marble staircase was just perfect to show off Rachel's stunning wedding dress and anyone who's been to a wedding at Craighouse will remember how every room is different, special and adds to the occasion. Especially the Turmeau Hall, rising so high up you would be forgiven for not knowing how it looks at the top - amazing!
I feel like I'm going to gush superlatives when I speak about the day, but it really was just fantastic. The ceremony was filled with joy and emotion and the guests smiled and laughed their way through the whole day. Even the details, such as the tables being named after Elvis songs (and the first two dances were by the King himself, expertly played by Norval Barclay at Barclay's Beats) added to the day. Rachel and Neil looked beautiful, handsome and happy - it was just wonderful for me to be involved.
Congratulations again to Rachel and Neil, hope you're having a fantastic honeymoon :)
I'm just back from the Big Smoke after a wonderful photo-packed weekend walking miles upon miles with my good friend Stuart, both of us snapping lots of pics! Here's a sneak peek of where we got to, more to follow soon!
P.S. If any photo enthusiasts want to know, this was 30 secs at f22.
I recently spent a morning with the lovely Lily and her Mum, Sarah. Lily is just gorgeous, she has the most beautiful eyes and eyelashes that go on forever! She showed me through her collection of books (including the awesome Gruffalo!), as well as her walking skills :)
After a brew and a couple of (seriously delicious) biscuits, we braved the cold and took a walk to the park where it was clear that the swings were definitely the winner of the Lily's-favourite-playground-pasttime. Lots of fun!
Here's a few of my favourite photos from the morning:
Ever one to learn new ways, I've gone and braved the world of iMovie: All. By. Myself. Well, almost (thanks Kirsten!). Inspired by all these amazing slideshows with music that I keep coming across on my favourite blogs, I figured it can't be a bad bit of knowledge to have in my brain so drum roll please for...ta daaaa. My first slideshow that I put together a few weeks ago, featuring my lovely wedding and engagement people from the past 6 months:
I've also set up on Vimeo, which is also all new to me so if you're on it and you'd like a new Vimeo-friend, come say hello!
P.S. If you're wondering about the music - it's 'You're Lovely to Me' by Lucky Jim. My guitartastic brother-in-law, JP, played this as I walked down the aisle at my wedding... although you probably recognise it from the Hovis advert...
