As an Arbroath & Dundee wedding photographer, I was recently lucky enough to be commissioned by Nick and Lucy (Loopy to her friends) to photograph their wedding at the Forbes of Kingennie Golf and Fishing venue and what a fairytale event it was to. Its worth saying from the very first time we met which was well over 18 months ago from their wedding date, that they new that with my military planning and their wonderful vision and style of what they had set out in their wedding details, that they were the perfect client.
Their engagement shoot, which was conducted earlier this year, was just about setting the scene for their wedding day portraits.
Nick and Lucy got ready only meters apart, as their houses were right next door from each other, but the tea and buns and Champaign were flowing far better in Lucy’s mums house.
The day started as always with the girls getting ready and make up application.
The wedding day was the vision of Nick and Lucy but the venue was beautifully decorated by the talented Billy and Elaine from WDB Flowers and Events. Function Manager Louise was on hand to give professional help and coordinate the day as it folded.
It has to be said that Lucy looked breathtakingly beautiful and her Ronald Joyce (Rosalinda) dress looked just divine. I knew Nick would be rocked when he saw Lucy walk down the isle. Their lovely boys played a fantastic role and where great little helpers carrying the wedding bands. The ceremony was held within the newly furnished section of the hotel and was conducted by Angus register office who are very photographer friendly. The ceremony was emotional for Lucy’s dad John and completed by a lovely reading from chief bridesmaid Hayley.
With a few formal family shots taken at the 9th Green of the golf course and then a short move to The Old Boating house situated close by the specimen pond was the setting for bride and grooms portraits, and the stunning light glimmering over the ponds and through the lush tree canopy. The dancing started soon after the cake cutting and the first dance, which is also one of my favourites, A Thousand years performed by Carbon Copy wedding and function band. I left soon after the dancing started and it looked like it was going to be an awesome party.
I had an amazing time and the images are looking great. Good luck to Mr and Mrs Grant and I wish you every happiness for the future.
