Sometimes everything in the world just clicks! Today was one of those days. Let’s start with the Kelly! I hadn’t met Kelly properly til today but her emails and messages told me that she would be amazing to work with. She was just the most cheeky & fun bride, completely down to earth and totally gorgeous. And despite Kelly’s joking reservations about her man being in front of the lens, Carl was fantastic too! A proper gentleman, proper goodlooking and just an incredibly nice guy – it’s a rare thing to be all 3 (I wouldn’t know)! Their family and friends were huge fun as well, especially the mad, bad Magaluf girls! I mingled and talked and that let me get some cracking shots of everyone throughout the day. The venue was magnificent – I hadn’t photographed at the classy Marriott Dalmahoy for years and it was such a fantastic feeling to be back. Especially with the ceremony being held at St Mary’s, at the entrance to the grounds, which is a lovely wee church. I always think it would make the perfect church to go on a Christmas card, you know with snow falling from a night sky, with warm lanterns and twinkly lights. It’s just what you’d imagine! The Dalmahoy team led on the day by Lynette Sutherland (buggy driver extraordinaire) are super efficient which is what you need for any wedding. Special mention to Reverend Derek Collingwood who conducted the ceremony, as ever, with grace & good humour (it was like being reunited with an old friend, lovely to see you again Derek!) and John Smith the toastmaster who always adds a splash of elegance to any wedding. I’ve known John for years, back when I first started as a photographer 13 yrs ago and it was fab to see him again. As I say, it’s great when the stars align. Super day for everyone. Here are just a few magic previews of Kelly & Carl’s big day.
