As many of you know I have taken a huge leap from the world of accountancy to the amazing world of photography this year. I could not be loving it any more than I do right now. ♡
I was really lucky to meet the super-talented Eilidh from Eilidh Robertson Photography on a training course during the summer and have been second shooting for her ever since. Such invaluable experience! I really loved the hands-on, styled shoot element of the training course we had done, so Eilidh & I decided it could be fun to organise our own styled shoot.
Given the time of year we thought it would be perfect to go for an Autumn themed shoot. We set about getting our colour scheme and lost hours searching through the beautiful world of Pinterest creating our own inspiration board. Dresses, flowers, make-up, invites, decorations….... It was like planning a wedding again - something I absolutely loved for my own wedding 6 (!) years ago.
I spent a week with my fingers glued together making various crafty items such as sheet music roses, hessian and lace glass jars & pillar candles, and heart confetti. My Dad even got involved with a chainsaw to make our wonderful wooden cake stand! All little details which helped with the styling of the shoot on the day.
We collaborated with the wonderful suppliers listed below. They were extremely helpful and we are so grateful for their input.
The impressive venue Strathallan Castle, Auchterarder,
Stunning bride and groom Michelle & Alasdair (and their cute Boxer puppy),
The very cool 1957 Buick from Classi Cars
and of course Eilidh Robertson Photography for all her help in pulling the shoot together and for taking stunning photos of Brian & I (I couldn't resist the chance to wear the sensational Alan Hannah Sorrento dress!)
On the day the weather was typically Scottish but I think we still managed to capture some beautiful images in-between downpours! Here’s a wee selection from the day.
