Larna and Andy – wedding at The Cruin, Loch Lomond

Being a wedding photographer gives me the privilege to meet so many amazing people, listen to their stories, meet their families and record the most important day of their lives. It’s a gift. I’ve been really busy in the last few months and Larna and Andy’s Big Day was the 4th wedding I’ve done in 10 days, but regardless of that I was really looking forward to it. When I met them few months earlier for a short family session with their two youngest kids, I knew straight away that their wedding will not be only about Larna and Andy, but the whole close and beautiful family. And so it was. Special.
Larna also warned my that it’s going to be wild and crazy – I guess she know their friends really well 🙂
It all happened at The Cruin wedding venue about half an hour from Glasgow. Beautiful place on the banks of Loch Lomond and really perfect setting for the wedding photography. We’re really lucky with the weather so the ceremony was outside, which made it even more special. As a wedding photographer I love to work with natural light, so I was really exited as the view from the hotel is simply amazing. I had a great time just hanging around taking photos, everyone was so friendly, chilled out and the guys at The Cruin really did a great job taking care of everything ( at this point I need to mention the delicious food ). Everything was perfect, but I knew the best was still to come…Larna’s surprise dance. The first dance is one of the most important moments of every wedding and I really enjoy photographing it, but this time I was waiting for it even more. It’s safe to say that everyone loved it and Andy’s face was priceless 🙂 What followed was exactly what Larna have predicted – a wild party and crazy ceilidh dancing.
It was a real honour to be a wedding photographer for such a lovely couple, great family and amazing friends.
