Brad & Claire, Balbirnie House, August 2009
This summer we travelled to Fife to photograph the wedding of Brad & Claire. The stunning Balbirnie Castle was the backdrop for a fantastic day, with every guest remarking on how much fun was had from start to finish.
Our job as photographers is to be on the lookout for the tiny moments which tell the story of each wedding. We had our cameras ready when the groom’s mates decided to chase him across the lawn, when the best man pressed play on his slideshow of hilarious photos and when the dancing was in full swing late into the evening. There were plenty of quiet and romantic moments too and these have proved very popular with the guests in the months since the wedding.
One lovely idea we haven’t seen anywhere else – the groom’s brother, a bar manager in Glasgow, created a cocktail especially for the big day and each guest was given minatures of the ingredients. He led the guests in a cocktail mixing masterclass and everyone raised their glass to toast the couple before the meal.
