I was delighted to travel down to Glasgow for Sarah and Martin’s beautiful wedding in the City Halls and Old Fruitmarket. Sarah and her bridesmaids had their hair and make-up done in a flat at the West End before travelling over to the Merchant City. George McLean of Fuze Ceremonies married Sarah and Martin in the Recital Room in a humanist ceremony involving a handfasting and lighting a candle. It was very personal, telling the couple’s story, and with a few laughs too, as you’ll see from the photographs! Afterwards, the bride and groom celebrated with their friends and family with a drinks reception before cutting their cake and taking their seats in the Old Fruitmarket for the speeches and wedding breakfast. After the meal, the couple joined me outdoors for some shots in various locations around the Merchant City. The atmosphere was lovely with cars beeping their horns and passers-by giving their congratulations! Back at the venue, Sarah and Martin had their first dance then the ceilidh got underway at the end of a brilliant wedding day!
Sarah very kindly left me this lovely review:
“Karen was our wedding photographer this year at the Old Fruitmarket. I would recommend her for many reasons, her professionalism, making the experience personable and reassuring us when things got a wee bit stressful on the day! Karen had contacted myself promptly after enquiring, and we discussed what our vision was for the wedding, Karen was able to listen and suggest things that I hadn’t even thought of!
Throughout the course of preparing for the wedding, Karen was reachable at any moment, to discuss other ideas, and areas around the venue for couple’s photos.
Karen also met with my family at a time that suited us, as a young family we had bedtime routines to follow, Karen was happy to meet with us after out little one was in bed, and when my husband arrived back from work.
During the day of the wedding, Karen arrived on time, and stayed until she felt was the right time to leave. Karen captured so many lovely and beautiful moments during the course of the day. Capturing the essence of our wedding and our relationship.
I can’t thank Karen enough for everything she has done for us, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.” – Sarah and Martin
Here are a few images from Sarah and Martin’s wedding.
Congratulations to you both!
