I recently photographed Gillian and Joseph’s beautiful wedding at Abercairny Stables in Perthshire. The day began with Gillian, her mum and her bridesmaids getting ready in Crieff. As well as photographing the hair and make-up being done, this gave me the opportunity to capture the dresses, shoes, jewellery, flowers and other details. I headed over to Abercairny in time to capture Joseph greeting the guests before the ceremony. Gillian arrived, accompanied by her dad, and the ceremony got underway. Humanist Kate Buchanan conducted an emotional ceremony, with personalised vows, lots of laughter and a few tears too. Afterwards, I captured a group photo outside before the bride and groom were covered in confetti!
The afternoon entertainment was provided by Mathew and Aarron McIntyre from A Month of Sundays and the guests enjoyed drinks and nibbles in the courtyard sunshine while I whisked the couple away for some photographs in the adjacent Abercairny Gardens. The daffodils provided the perfect complement to this lovely spring wedding. After some great speeches by the father of the bride, groom and best man, the meal was served in an amazing tipi provided by Special Events Tipis. Gillian and Joseph cut their wedding cake then had their first dance as their friends and family looked on. It was a truly special day.
“Karen was so good with us from our first meeting! Joseph and I weren’t too keen on posing all day but Karen made us feel so relaxed and took natural images of our guests and us enjoying the day just like we wanted. She was so discreet that we hardly even noticed she was there. We are so happy we chose Karen as our photographer as we now have a beautiful collection of photos that capture the atmosphere of our day perfectly.”

“As an HSS celebrant I work with many photographers and Karen is right up there with the best. Friendly, kind and so unobtrusive during the ceremony, yet producing lovely images of the most intimate moments. She also sent me a link to view the album (with the couple’s permission of course) which many photographers promise but fail to do! I don’t think anyone would regret booking her services, first class.” – Kate Buchanan
Congratulations to you both!
