I am delighted to share this stylish wedding photography, as Abbie and Callum united two Scottish clans. In the father of the bride’s speech we learnt how in darker times these two clans fought each other to the death and there was no love lost!
However on this day Abbie and Callum reversed that trend by marking their commitment to one another and dedicating their baby son. Finally the service closed with a live acoustic rendition by the whole congregation of Elton John’s Your Song as they sang: How wonderful life is, while you’re in the world.
Abbie’s personality is as sparkling as her Cole Haan shoes – shoes which were not only stunning but also pretty comfortable, because she danced up the aisle with her father and back down it with her husband. And then – after a few group shots and some champagne – they danced into their reception!
Redhouse Barn in Worcestershire was the perfect venue for this relaxed but stylish wedding photography, and for Abbie and Callum’s unique wedding. In addition to the dancing shoes, the families and their kilts were there in force. Once all Scottish socks were on, handsome thistle boutonnieres finished their look. A close friend’s son made a handsome pageboy in full attire, who took his job as ring-bearer extremely seriously, guarding his precious cargo in his sporran until the moment.
The weather was typically British and could not quite decide. Sunshine and showers took their turn but we still got our golden hour at sunset, as well as some amazing triple rainbows which everyone tried to capture on their phones.
Another wonderful feature of this wedding was the lovely flower girls. Having been a bridesmaid twice as a girl I remember the magic of the experience – totally different to being one as an adult. So it was really great to see this opportunity being given to a sweet little troupe of young ladies. The girls looked very fine in their fresh flower crowns, and they all earned their fun creche session and tea of their own during the speeches.
Thank you Abbie and Callum for inviting me to document your day.
