Question: What do you do when it rains on your wedding day?
Answer: Who cares.
This was the attitude of Jamie and Sarah. A couple of smashers with the best attitudes ever. Their wedding was literally perfect. Even though it poured down all day.
This was my first time at Archerfield House in North Berwick. It's hard to not to feel like a kid in a candy shop at these types of venues. It's jaw droppingly stunning and the absolute perfect venue for Jamie and Sarah. The staff are absolutely amazing and it really felt like such a chilled and stress free day.
I actually met the happy couple at Sarah's sisters wedding (the lovely Catriona and Stuart) and I remember Sarah being so funny and Jamie being really drunk haha. Pretty much my idea of a perfect couple tbh. I thought they were already married but when their email dropped into my inbox I was ecstatic!
The rain was forecast to be pretty continuous throughout the day and it was spot on. The rain literally didn't stop and only got heavier as the day when on so what did we do? Grabbed a couple of brollies and went out anyway! The whole bridal party came outside too. This is what its all about! Just go with it! Another reason as to why I knew Jamie and Sarah were my ideal couple, they just did what felt right! They wanted pictures outside so that's what we did. We didn't stay out long cos it was bloomin' freezing but it was worth heading out for a little while.
At Cat and Stu's wedding last year, Sarah's brother, Keith, took the honour of being the toast master for their wedding. He had the place in stitches so this time around, the bar was set high. True to form he absolutely smashed it, keeping the mood high throughout the speeches. I love it when friends or family members play non traditional roles on wedding days. Makes it much more interesting.
It's safe to say that I absolutely loved this wedding. I say this all the time but having couples like Jamie and Sarah trusting me with their wedding is an amazing feeling. This job just gets better and better. A huge thanks to The Lindsays' for having me photograph their big day. To Tracy at Archerfield for being so amazing and all the other suppliers mentioned below who helped make the day perfect!
