Lorna and Daniel were looking for very natural wedding photographs, so I was thrilled when they booked me to capture their special day in the village of Dallas in Moray, Scotland.
The day began with Lorna getting her hair and make-up done at home before travelling the short distance to St Michael’s Parish Church in Dallas. It was a beautiful ceremony and I loved capturing all the expressions on the faces of the bride and groom! Afterwards, Lorna, Daniel and their parents greeted the guests as they emerged from the church; a great opportunity for some candid shots!
Thankfully rain on your wedding day is said to be good luck! The Scottish drizzle gradually turned to heavy rain as the day wore on but Lorna and Daniel braved the elements for some photographs outside the church – by the burn and in the adjacent field – and at Dallas Village Hall, where the couple held their reception. Twisted Willow provided the flowers for Lorna and Daniel’s wedding, including the beautiful display at the front door of the hall.
Canapés were served in a little marquee next to the village hall and Lorna and Daniel then cut their cake before everyone lined up for a group photograph. Lorna and Daniel had decorated the interior of the hall themselves; I’m sure you’ll agree they did a fantastic job! The wedding guests took their seats followed by Lorna and Daniel, then the speeches got underway. The meal was then served and, following the arrival of the evening guests, the bride and groom took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife.
Here are some memories from Lorna and Daniel’s wedding day. Congratulations to you both!
We can highly recommend Karen as a wedding photographer.
Our photos (which I can’t stop looking at) are brilliant and most importantly really captured the essence of the day and our guests at the wedding.
From first meeting Karen, we could tell she was genuine and kind, she really took notice of the things important to us and our day.
She was calm influence on the morning before the ceremony and our guests have spoken highly of how discreetly she moved around the wedding getting pictures of everyone.
I can’t wait to get our album and display some of these images in our home.
Many thanks again Karen!
