Caroline and Charles at St. Michael's Linlithgow, and Dalmeny
"Wow. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the incredible photographs of our wedding. We are absolutely thrilled with them, especially the beach and palace shots which are gorgeous. You really managed to inobtrusively capture the mix of friends, family, artful shots and also the fun, laughter-filled ones that we had hoped – we really thought that they reflected how we would have wanted to portray the atmosphere of our day. Countless people have said they are some of the best wedding photos they have ever seen.
We were also so grateful to you for being so patient with us, two people who are not natural posers in front of the camera at all, and had been nervous about that aspect of the day. Also, we were so impressed that you managed to get all the photos done so quickly at our request, so that we could really get involved in the party. All too often we have been involved in weddings where the bride and groom seem to disappear for an hour!
So thank you. We have a wonderful memory of our day which we will cherish forever.
Many thanks again,
Caroline & Charles"
Caroline and Charles chose the church of St. Michael's with its iconic spire, next to Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, for their ceremony. The reception was a little way away, in a marquee on the foreshore of the Firth of Forth at Dalmeny. The weather was looking distinctly blustery, and the location could have been chilly if the wind had been in the wrong direction, so we had our fingers and toes firmly crossed for several days before. But come the day of the wedding, the wind though strong was from the West so that the marquee was sheltered by the trees, the morning rain dispersed, and as the reception began the sun came out right on cue, allowing the guests to take full advantage of the spectacular location.
As you can see from the photos, this was a wedding that had tremendous preparation, with so many beautiful details. One of the highlights was the that a selection of guests were nominated to be carvers, involving fancy chef-like headgear, and a tremendous amount of hilarity. In fact, hilarity seemed to be a feature of the whole reception, everyone clearly had a fantastic time!
