"They are fantastic! Thank you so much.  We've been perusing friends pictures on facebook to keep ourselves amused, but your collection is simply stunning. I re-lived many emotions when looking at them! You were both so great on the day - it felt like you were friends as you always seemed to be smiling and a part of what was happening, I never felt self-concious at all."

- Elspeth

We have been blessed with some really happy days recently, and Elspeth and Andrew's wedding was an especially memorable one. The day before the wedding, when we met up at the venue for the ceremony - in wet and blustery Scottish October weather, the dungeon at Dirleton Castle where the ceremony was to take place was looking a bit dank and puddley. The next day however, right on cue, the grey clouds parted to reveal a warming sun, and the dungeon seemed to heat up surprisingly quickly, even though the only visible source of heat was a few candles. It is astonishing how quickly the weather can tranform a scene in this part of the world.

As you can see, we had time for a portrait photo session, before the wedding party headed off to the warm and welcoming arms of Winton House, with its roaring log fires inside and croquet and braziers out.

I was intrigued to hear that Elspeth and Andrew had met while on various sailing adventures around the Channel and East Coast - and was sorely tempted to swap yarns of daring-do at sea and compare notes on tonnage, windward performance, stability curves, piracy and whatever else salty sea dogs like to discuss over a mug of grog. That would probably have meant that Sylwia would have been left alone to photograph the wedding, as well as driving the guests mad, so luckily I more or less managed to resist.

Some photos of the day's jollity!:-
