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!

Sian & Grant- Loch Morlich Pre-Wedding Photography Session https://www.hannahlovephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/sian-grant--loch-morlich-pre-wedding-photography-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.

Amy & Iain - Wedderburn Castle Barns Wedding https://www.hannahlovephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/amy-iain---wedderburn-castle-barns-wedding 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!

Nicola & Andrew - St Salvator's and St Andrews University Wedding https://www.hannahlovephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/2/st-andrews-university-wedding 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!

Lis and Tom - Ayrshire Farm Wedding https://www.hannahlovephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/1/lis-and-tom---ayrshire-farm-wedding 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…..

Intimate Edinburgh Wedding -Scotsman Hotel https://www.hannahlovephotography.co.uk/blog/2016/6/intimate-edinburgh-wedding--scotsman-hotel  

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 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.

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!).
