Mary Anne and Allan Wedding Photography

What makes a great wedding?, the people off course. A few months ago I covered the wedding of Mary Anne and Allan who are both from the Western Isles of Scotland. The wedding took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow on a beautiful sunny day in July. The weather forecast was for torrential rain so I had an anxious wait leading up to the big day as I had lots of ideas to do pictures outside.

On the day, It turned out to be a beautiful day thankfully. As the wedding was taking place in a hotel, there wasn’t many arrival shots to be taken as most of the guests were staying at the hotel. I started off getting some candid pictures of guests around the foyer and bar off the hotel.

Next I took the groom, best man and ushers outside to do some pictures. I liked these shots as they set the scene for the wedding day.

Allan had to one of the most relaxed grooms I’ve ever seen. I love this shot of him with the best man and ushers relaxing before the service.

There was beautiful light bouncing in through the windows of the reception area. I used the opportunity to get some pictures of the bride with her dad, then the brides maids and page girls before the wedding ceremony.

The ceremony itself was beautiful and felt very intimate, even though there was around 130 guests. This was thanks to the layout of the chairs in the room where the ceremony took place.

After the service I wanted to do a group shot with all the guests. To my horror It had started raining outside, so I decided to take the group shot inside. Trying to drag 130 islanders away from the bar was not easy but I got there in the end with a little help from the ushers. I was really happy with the result and It looked fantastic in the album spread across two pages.

Next It was time for the main group shots. Thankfully the rain had passed and the sun had came back out. So I was able to go outside to do the rest of the group shots.

There was a perfect spot for pictures just outside the reception area which worked really well.

Before doing pictures of the bride and groom, I wanted to do a shot that the bride had seen before. It was taken from the millennium bridge toward the bells bridge with the bridal party over the span. Unfortunately the bells bridge was getting work done on It so there was no access. I did something similar with the bridal party on the millennium bridge and myself on the bank with the Glasgow science centre in the background. I was really happy with this shot as It worked very well.

Thanks to the location wedding venue, there were numerous places to do pictures near by. Mary Anne and Allan had allocated plenty of time for photography, so It was great not having to rush, though I was still conscious that they would want to get back and enjoy themselves with their friends and family.

Next It was onto the speeches, dinner and Ceilidh. I was even treated to some dinner so got to socialise myself with the guests and they couldn’t have been a more friendly bunch.

The highlight of the day for me had to be the ceilidh at the end. I’ve never seen a crowd more up for a party. As soon as the first dance was over everyone piled on to the dance floor and I heard they never left until the lights came.
