Back in the swing of wedding season and last Saturday saw me venturing into the wilds of Glasgow for the wedding of Susan and David.
This was my first trip to the registry offices at Park Circus. This is a great location with beautiful interiors but with a throughput that would shame a factory production line. Following a lightning ceremony, we had 5 minutes in the conservatory and 5 minutes on the balcony before the couple were pushed out the door and the doors locked behind them. I guess being the last slot on the day's schedule the workers were eager to be away.
It was a more relaxed feel at the reception, held at Sloans. It was quite strange being back in the ballroom, as the last time I'd been there had been a photoshoot with the lovely Miel.
Susan and David were a lovely couple, relaxed and happy once the wedding nerves wore off a little. I'm looking forward to showing them the resulting pictures, when they get back from their honeymoon.
This was actually the first of my "family" weddings this year. I'd shot Janet's wedding earlier in the year and she's Susan's sister and will be shooting Debbie's wedding in a couple of weeks, who is their cousin. This isn't the only instance of keeping it in the family this year. This Friday's wedding for Nicola and Kevin arose because of Kevin's sister Julie's wedding last year.
Naturally I'm available to weddings from other families too!
