Yesterday was as close as you could get to a winter wonderland wedding at The Church of the Holy Rude and then onto Stirling Castle. It was certainly one the coldest weddings I’ve ever photographed in terms of the weather. But one of the warmest and kindest in terms of the families involved. Thank you Nicola for […]
