YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!
How do I describe just how good this wedding was? Imagine a freshly made doughnut enveloped in a blanket of sugar, with hot nutella drizzled over the top. Sarah and Ally's wedding was the equivalent of that. It was delicious!
I shot their engagement at the start of the year in the crazy snow at the top of Blackford Hill in Edinburgh and I knew instantly that these guys were straight up perfect! I was excited for the wedding and certainly wasn't disappointed.
Cambo Estate, sits on the east coast at St Andrews and is basically a photographers dream. With its stunning exterior, grounds and stunning stately home interior it really is a photographers playground. The added bonus is the courtyard with a bar and fire pit leading into the old barn which is amazing with it's indoor/outdoor feel to it. This is a serious contender for my favourite venue yet. It is perfect and Louise (wedding coordinator) runs it in the most chilled and relaxed way. No stress.
Martin, and I spent the morning capturing the excitement and anticipation leading up to the most happy and emotional ceremony. Me with Sarah and the girls and Martin with Ally and the fellas. My favourite weddings are when you can really feel that everyone in the room is absolutely buzzing for the couple and you can feel the closeness between everyone. The ceremony was full of laughs and a few tears, pretty much the perfect balance.
We spent the afternoon capturing the lawn games and some serious trampolining after a short photoshoot with the bridal party and of course, the happy couple. We wanted to head down to the beach but decided to wait till later in the evening when the light was less harsh.
After a tasty dinner we grabbed Sarah and Ally for a short jaunt down to the gold course by the shore and caught the last bit of available light. It clouded over so we didn't quite get the golden hour we initially thought we would but....who cares. It was still epic and again, these 2 smashed it.
To top the evening off, the band (The Socials) got everyone on their feet from the word go. The dancefloor was full and a full dance floor means a very happy photographer.
Again, 2018 is proving to be the best year yet and I'm forever grateful for people like Sarah and Ally who treat me like a friend and make this job so rewarding.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Moncrieff!!!!
