KELLY & CARL’S WEDDING AT MARRIOTT DALMAHOY EDINBURGH

I love this shot. It totally sums Kelly up. So much fun! Only Kelly. I can’t think of another bride who would :)

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.

Kelly’s lovely heels for the day (the Vivienne Westwood’s were so close to getting the nod)

How much do I love this shot of Kelly?! I wanted to replicate that cool, sassy black & white Armani advert filmed in hotel room starring Megan Fox (I think it’s called ‘The Tip’ and doing the rounds on Youtube). This is better :)

I love the gentle feel of this portrait which I think shows off another side of Kelly’s personality beautifully.

It’s all about feeling great & having fun! I’m delighted for Kelly & Carl.

What better way to kick off a wedding than to duff up the groom in a lift! :)

Carl & the boys!

Kelly and her mad, bad Magaluf girls:)Fun & trouble in equal measure.

I love this shot! Some couples are meant to be together. Kelly & Carl are one such couple. Sometimes, you just know.
