Looking back on an amazing day from last summer at this Fortingall Village Hall Wedding today.  Yana and Andrew had a perfectly sunny day for their outdoor ceremony in the lovely little village of Fortingall. 

I started my day with Yana and her family (who had travelled over from Russia) at Loch Tay Highland Lodges.  What a beautiful setting for getting ready!  Before heading to a field on the outskirts of the village for their ceremony.  You can see from the photos what a stunning backdrop it was to be married in.  Scotland really is beautiful, especially when the sun shines!

After the ceremony Andrew’s uncle piped Yana and Andrew in their open-top VW Beetle followed by their guests in a procession back through the village.  We then left the guests to enjoy drinks in the sunshine while we went to explore the banks of Loch Tay for their couple session.

I love village hall weddings as you can decorate the hall your own way.  Yana and Andrew and their families had got the hall looking amazing for their evening reception.  The guests were treated to a traditional Russian music and a dance performance from Yana’s talented niece and nephew before joining in for some impressive ceilidh dancing in the evening.

What a brilliant day!

I love the beaches in East Lothian so was excited when Nathalie & Adam chose Tyninghame Beach for their recent pre wedding shoot. It's such stunning setting and was lovely to explore it with them.  You can see how happy they both are together.  I can't wait for their wedding this weekend in Edinburgh!

What an honour it is to capture the most precious tiny little people in the world. The first few weeks go by in a sleepy blur and they grow up way too fast so having photos to help remember just how tiny they were is amazing........

Thanks 2017, you have been amazing!  I've travelled all over Scotland from Dumfries & Galloway to the Highlands and wanted to say a massive thank you to all my brilliant couples who have trusted me to capture their wedding day. I've been smiling away while looking back through all the photos from this year trying to pick a few of my favourites to share in this post.  I really do have the best job in the world and can't wait to see where 2018 takes me.

Yana and Andrew get married this Saturday and I can't wait to photograph their day so I thought I'd share a few from their pre-wedding session ahead of the weekend.  We had a great time exploring Greenknowe Tower and Smailholm Tower in the Borders on a sunny Sunday evening for their pre-wedding shoot.  Here are a few favourites from their session.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be at Dell of Abernethy for a wedding and while I was up that way I met up with Sian and Grant at Loch Morlich.  I absolutely love Loch Morlich!  The beach, the loch, the snow covered mountains, the spring sunshine (after a heavy rain shower!), the trees, the reflections in the still Loch all came together to make it the most perfect spot for a pre-wedding session.

I love meeting my couples before their wedding and hearing all about their plans too.  Can't wait to head up to Strathpeffer in July but until then here are a couple of shots from our afternoon at Loch Morlich.

I loved everything about Amy and Iain's beautiful wedding at Wedderburn Castle Barns last year.  Amy had paid so much attention to detail and transformed the blank canvas of the Barns in to their picture perfect venue.  So many pretty details!  I loved the flower girls' tutus, the bridesmaids' gold sparkly dresses,  Amy's Dad's vintage Austin 10 and Amy's stunning Mori Lee wedding dress- she looked amazing!

It was such a fun and emotional day to be a part of  with lots (and lots) of happy tears!

Today we’re heading to St Andrews.   Such a gorgeous setting for a wedding with it’s beautiful old buildings and stunning beaches.  

Nicola and Andrew met when they were at St Andrews University so it seemed like the perfect choice for their wedding day.  They had a beautiful ceremony in St Salvator’s Chapel-made more personal by the fact it was officiated by a university friend of theirs.   Nicola's lace Phase Eight wedding dress looked amazing.  The bridesmaids looked fab too. Nicola just told them the colour to look for and let them pick their own dresses- they matched perfectly! 

The weather held too and we managed to escape down to St Andrews Pier and Castle Sands for their couple session, before they danced the night away to the awesome Viper Swing.   Such a brilliant day!

After an amazing month away in Australia (more on that soon!) I’m finally catching-up on a bit of blogging. Starting with one of my favourite weddings from last summer, Lis and Tom’s wedding on the family farm in Ayrshire.  

I love farm weddings as they are so relaxed, personal and fun and it’s amazing to see how a barn can be transformed in to a wedding venue for the day!  This wedding was no different.  So much thought and effort had gone in to transforming the beautiful family farm which made the perfect setting for afternoon tea and wedding celebrations.  So many personal touches… home made scones and jam, beautiful bouquets and flowers by Lis’ aunt and mum, amazing cut-out book table centres by Tom’s mum to name just a few.

Lis and Tom were so relaxed and didn’t stop smiling and laughing all day.  They are clearly perfect for each other.  It was such a privilege to be there to capture their day.  It went a bit like this…..

I met up with the lovely Sarah & Kris on a beautifully sunny evening at Beecraigs Country Park.  I loved wandering around, finding gorgeous spots for photos and hearing all about their wedding plans.  I can't wait to photograph their wedding in Edinburgh in September. Here are a few photos from their session.

I felt very honoured to be asked to capture Natalie and Matthew’s intimate wedding in Edinburgh recently.  They travelled down from Inverness with just 5 of their closest family members for their gorgeous wedding at the Scotsman hotel. 

After their lovely and personal humanist ceremony we ventured out amongst the tourists on the Royal Mile for their couple session. Matthew was stopped and asked to pose for photos with a few admirers as Natalie laughed and looked on looking absolutely stunning in her Essense of Australia dress.  
I left just as they were starting to sip some fabulous looking cocktails so I’m sure it was a great evening too.  
Here are a few photographs of the day…..

I had the privilege of meeting and photographing this gorgeous pair when they were only 8 days old.  They were just perfect, very sleepy (not always at the same time!) and smiley.  This was the first time I've photographed twins and I loved it.  Seeing the bond between them was amazing and I'm sure Ben is going to be very protective of his wee sister as they grow up.  Here are a few photos from their session......

A couple of weeks ago I was through in Glasgow to photograph James and Sarah’s gorgeous wedding at Glasgow University.  It was my first time photographing a wedding in the Chapel and it was stunning.  Sarah was such a relaxed, happy bride all day and looked beautiful in her Pronovias dress. Here is a little glimpse of their day….


Hannah Love Photography (C) Hannah Love Photography 2016-03-30T08:22:42Z 2016-03-30T08:22:42Z Alison & James || Drumtochty Castle Winter Wedding


Just after Christmas I headed up to the stunning Drumtochty Castle to photograph James and Alison's beautiful winter wedding.   Alison looked absolutely amazing in her gorgeous Stewart Parvin dress and Jimmy Choos (good job there were some tartan wellies on hand for their couple shoot down but the loch!).  This was such an emotional and happy day to be a part of and I'm excited to be sharing a few photographs of their day.......




Hannah Love Photography (C) Hannah Love Photography 2016-02-25T14:34:29Z 2016-02-25T14:34:29Z Nancy & Alistair || Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh Winter Wedding


I don’t think Nancy & Alistair could have been married on a more wet and windy day (thanks to Storm Desmond!) but they certainly didn’t let that dampen their spirits. They had picked two beautiful venues- St John’s Church and the Royal College of Physicians- so it didn’t matter that we didn’t venture outside all day. Nancy looked absolutely stunning and was such a happy bride all day.    This was such a fun wedding to be part of and I wanted to share a few of my favourite images from the day.

A massive thanks to the lovely Claire Juliet Paton Photography for second shooting with me on the day too.

What a year!  In the first part of the year I became a mummy to gorgeous little Ayl​a.  She has certainly kept me busy ever since!  Then in the second half of the year I met more beautiful little babies and some absolutely amazing couples.  I’ve felt so honoured to have played a part in capturing the love, joy, happy tears and special moments of their wedding days and wanted to share a few of my favourite images with you below.  I also wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone for your support during 2015- I can't wait to see what 2016 has in store!


Hannah Love Photography (C) Hannah Love Photography 2016-01-23T23:02:33Z 2016-01-23T23:02:33Z Alison & James || London Pre-Wedding Shoot

Back in November I flew down to London for the day to meet Alison & James for a whistle-stop tour of a pre-wedding session.  It was much colder than we were expecting but we did plenty of walking along the River to heat us up!  Here’s a look at what we got up to …...




Hannah Love Photography (C) Hannah Love Photography 2016-01-10T10:07:24Z 2016-01-10T10:07:24Z Nancy & Alistair || Edinburgh Pre-Wedding Shoot

When I left to meet Nancy & Alistair for their Pre-Wedding shoot at Holyrood Park a few weeks ago it was totally pouring down.  We got so lucky though as it dried up, and we got some beautiful light as we clambered about on The Crags.  Hopefully they will agree that the climb was worth it!   I can't wait to photograph their wedding in December.






Hannah Love Photography (C) Hannah Love Photography 2015-11-13T09:41:51Z 2015-11-13T09:41:51Z David & Emma ♡ - Inverness Country House Hotel

I’ve known David since my uni days so it was such an honour when he & Emma asked me to photograph their beautiful wedding at Inverness Country House Hotel back in July.  The typically Scottish summer weather meant they had to bring their planned outdoor ceremony inside but that certainly didn’t put a dampener on their day.  Emma looked totally stunning and they didn't stop smiling all day. It was clear so much effort had gone in to all the little details- transforming and personalising the hotel just for them.  I loved the fact all their nieces and nephews were involved too (check out their fab baseball boots!). 

Here is a little look at Mr & Mrs Chapman’s day ……..
