Being an East Lothian wedding photographer has many advantages. It’s not just the many fantastic venues, but the fantastic scenery as well. And when Autumn is in full swing – then wow, it just looks glorious!
Lesley and Gordon were married at Haddingtom Registry Office and from there made their way to Craigielaw Golf Club. The previous day I drove various routes between the two looking for the best locations with Autumn colours. Unfortunately, a gale was blowing, and I was beginning to think I would have to find a pile of fallen leaves for them to kick about! Luckily I found two locations which were relatively sheltered, with a third in mind, ‘just in case.’
In fact, the weather defied the forecast and the sun came out as we left Haddington. Low autumnal sunshine is one of my favourites – not too bright, and not too high.
Lesley’s two children did an amazing job at the wedding. Young Kyle not only walked his mother down the aisle, he later gave the first speech of the evening with Caroline looking on with pride. Kyle’s elder sister Sophie looked amazing as the bridesmaid – even if she did try and sneak a pair of Doc Martins on under her dress!
And Best Man Michael, from Sweden – whose day started with losing his rental car keys somewhere on the golf course – ended his speach with praise for Tennants lager! To make his day better, someone found his car keys and they were returned to him with a round of applause from all the guests.
Being an East Lothian wedding photographer is never boring!
