angela & paul the dancing couple

Most of the weddings that I cover are very similar. Sometimes though, there is something that set’s a wedding apart from all of the rest. Usually It is an unusual choice of venue or It might be the style or the theme which the couple choose to use on their day. For Angela and Paul’s wedding they chose a 1950’s inspired theme. It’s the small details that can make a wedding unique. Angela got the idea after she was given a beautiful pearl, diamond and sapphire necklace as a gift from her aunt. She wanted to wear It on her wedding day as It had been inherited from her great aunts who were marvellously stylish ladies that made their own clothes, shopped for hats in London and ran their own business. Angela wanted a 1950’s inspired dress and choose one that complimented her necklace. She said “ I used to love looking at my granny’s Vogue magazines and, when I explained to the dressmaker that I would like to be able to dance and have a “couture’ 1950’s Grace Kelly look, she showed me an original vogue 1950’s pattern and we went to Mandors and chose the fabric together”.

The wedding was at Pollockshields Burgh Hall http://www.pollokshieldsburghhall.com/. The hall is situated in the leafy Maxwell Park area of Glasgow and was designed by H.E Clifford In the Scottish Renaissance style, It opened In 1890. This was the first time I had covered a wedding there. As soon as I seen It, I new it would be great for pictures. The main room has large stained glass windows which let lots of light through and make a fantastic backdrop. As It’s In Maxwell Park, there is loads of options for pictures outside as well.

The service itself was beautifully carried out by the celebrant. As It was a humanist service Angela and Paul were able to customise It to how they wanted It. This led to my favourite part of the day. At the end of the ceremony the band started to play bring me sunshine and the celebrant asked everyone to join In singing. As they did so Angela and Paul danced down the isle as they left. No one watching was expecting It and I had certainly never seen a couple do that. They wanted to do It because they both dance Ceroc, which is where they actually met. This personal touch was the perfect end to a great ceremony.
