We love all our weddings but this one is just WOW! We absolutely loved all the details, the location and the couple. Marie-Claire (MC) was bridesmaid at a previous wedding we photographed and it's a funny story because as the day went on and we got to know her and Ross and how full of laughs they are together we actually came away saying we wanted to photograph their wedding if they ever got married. A year later we got a message asking if we were available because they'd gotten engaged! We were over the moon.
They got married at the Corinthian in Glasgow on 14 May and it was such a fantastic day. It was our first time at the venue and we would love to go back. It's always nice to photograph a city wedding when we're more used to country houses with big gardens, and it made us try some different things. As usual, we went our separate ways in the morning to photograph the bride and groom preparations. We feel it's important to tell the full story and capture both sides in the morning and it's always lovely to see the reactions when the bride and groom see the morning photos and what went on when they weren't there. MC and Ross were getting ready next door to the Corinthian in the Mercure hotel so it was all nice and easy. Sandie-B was making up all the girls in the morning and it was nice to finally work with her on a wedding, as she's also been a guest at a previous wedding we've photographed and we've been acquainted for over a year now just waiting til our work paths crossed!
The ceremony was one of the happiest we've ever photographed. It was laughs and smiles all round and it was so easy to see that that's just how this couple are; they are so happy in each other's company. Little Mason, MC's 1 year old nephew, stole the show as he gave big claps when the husband and wife announcement was made, it melted everyone's heart and couldn't have been timed better!
We photographed the group and family shots at the entrance to the Corinthian, and MC had let us know of some cool shots she wanted us to try. It was great fun!
Then onto the bridal portraits. We walked around the centre of Glasgow, stopping when we saw good opportunity and it was a lot of fun. The people of Glasgow are so friendly and it was amazing to hear the amount of compliments and admiring looks going their way.
Speeches included some laughs and lots of lovely sentiments, MC cried when Ross explained how perfect they are for each other and how much he's looking forward to their life together. There was lots of appreciation for the life they have already built, owning their own business (MeTime in Laurieston) and their plans for the future.
After dinner the evening guests arrived and after photographing the first dance, seeing some really amazing dance moves and taking some more couples and group shots we left everyone to what was shaping up to be an amazing party!
