Two weeks ago I had the great pleasure of photographing Cat and John's wedding at the stunning 29 Private Member's Club in Glasgow. This was a wedding I had been looking forward to for some time, and one of the main reasons is that you really couldn't meet two nicer people! Although I haven't spend much time with them, I can tell how much their personalities compliment each other - Cat is outgoing and excitable :) whereas John is calmness and her rock. My day started at the Fraser Suites in Glasgow's Merchant City where Cat and her bridesmaids were getting their hair and make up done. Soon it was time to get a taxi across to 29, where Cat stepped into her lace dress in the swanky surroundings of the fourth floor apartment. The stylish lighting makes 29 a very interesting place to shoot for a wedding photographer, and I really enjoyed playing with the different effects when photographing Cat's dress and accessories!
Cat and John had a Humanist ceremony which included their own vows, which was a lovely touch. We then went outside bracing the freezing temperatures for their couple portraits - and I have to thank Cat again at this point for bearing with me! It was definitely worth it as the light was fantastic. Back inside, their guests were treated to speeches from Cat's Dad, John and his brother, the best man. He had also prepared a special surprise for Cat and John - he had composed a song which he performed just before the first dance!
I have seldom seen a dancefloor so packed and it was obvious everybody was up for having a good time. Cat and John, you really have struck an amazing balance with your wedding between stylish but at the same time heartwarming! I sincerely wish you all the very best for your future together, and I hope you enjoy this preview of your wedding photos.
"Just a wee email to say a very big thank you to you and your amazing pictures that you took of John and me! Seriously you are simply incredible. You have captured absolutely everything in the ones that we have seen and cannot wait to see the rest of them.
From the minute we met you, we were so happy we found you. You make us feel so comfortable in front of a camera, and you truly capture us in the best way. I have never had so many comments about photographs which John and I are in together, and what people have said is just so lovely. We were so very lucky to have you for our wedding day, and any couple would be so very lucky to have you on their wedding day.
I hope you and your family are well and wedding season is in full swing! I'm sad that we wont see you again. Take care. Love J&C xxx"
