I love it when my couples are seriously into their photos, because I know they’re going to give me some brilliant opportunities. The lovely Kirsty and Aaron are no exception. Added to that is the fact that they’ve got to be two of the most generous people I’ve met – Kirsty even picked me up from the ferry the day before! They’d laid on pretty much everything you can think of to entertain their guests: fireworks, Highland marching bands and, of course, bacon buttes for the bus home.
Mount Stuart is a gorgeous wedding venue – think remote Scottish castle (you even have to take a ferry to get to Bute) complete with billiards room and a stunning marble chapel. I’ve never photographed a ceremony held ‘in the round’ before, but after this wedding I’ve been wondering why more venues don’t do the same – it’s a wonderful way of getting everyone involved and making the couple literally feel at the centre of their day!
I hung around the day after the wedding as well, and Kirsty and Aaron got dressed up in their finery once more so we could take some extra couples portraits by the sea. It was made all the better by bumping into some of their friends on the way – a really fun way to spend the day after your wedding.
Hope you had as much fun as everyone else did guys, you throw a great party – thanks for having me along!
