This wedding story had started many months before when Isabelle and Rich had their natural pre-wedding photoshoot on the Scottish hills near Stirling. Family and friends came from far away to witness this sacred union. While the ceremony took place at the beautiful Dryburgh Abbey in the Scottish Borders, the reception was organised at the Norton House in Ingliston near Edinburgh.
I love weddings, I do!
While some people despise weddings, I love everything about them.
Firstly happiness and joy are highly contagious, and no matter how serious and stamina draining it can be to make wedding photography, I always feel rejuvenated at the end of the day. Then, one cannot ignore the whole ceremonial aspect of a wedding. Everyone dressed up to honour the pledge made by the bride & groom. That is even more true for a wedding in Scotland as there is no better-looking man than one wearing a kilt!
In many cases, the wedding day is also the once in a lifetime opportunity to have all the families and friends gathered in one location which makes wedding photography even more important to capture long-lasting memories.
Even the smallest and intimate wedding tends to require a lot of preparation. From the bridal gown to the chair dressing, from the often so challenging seat arrangement to the entertainment. Each detail of the day reveals something about the bride and her groom.
For all the above reasons and many others, I am in love with weddings, and I can only hope that my photographs tell the uniqueness and beauty of each one I have the honour to witness. Without further ado, here are a few photographs of the day where a Belgian bride said Yes to an English man.
