Last month I had the pleasure of photographing Estela and Michael’s Scottish-Brazilian wedding at the Woodlands Hotel in Broughty Ferry. The humanist ceremony was so personal and emotional with tears and laughter. Estela lit candles for absent loved ones, and the couple had a handfasting and also mixed sand from Scotland and Brazil to create a unique and symbolic keepsake for the couple to treasure throughout their married life.
It was a blustery day and so, after the ceremony, we opted to give the seafront a miss and did all the photography within the hotel grounds. For one of the photographs, Estela and Michael held images of their parents captured on their wedding days. The bride and groom celebrated with their guests in the lounge bar then took their seats in the ballroom for the speeches and wedding breakfast. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room when a video was played with a slideshow of family photographs and messages from Estela’s brother who had been unable to travel over from Brazil.
After the speeches, Estela and Michael cut their cake then I left them and their guests to enjoy the rest of their wedding day.
Here are a few images from the afternoon.
Congratulations to you both!
