Elise and Mathews Winter wedding at Forbes of Kingennie
I’ve made some life long friends through being a photographer and to be asked to photograph Elise and Matts wedding was just lovely. I think my favourite thing about weddings is when the Bride and Groom wear their hearts on their sleeves – just being themselves throughout the day from early morning preparations to the dancing at night.
I met up with Elise and Matt at St. Andrews church, Arbroath at their rehearsals, the night before, which is a great way to just visit the church and conduct a walk through of the service and adjust to any finer details within the plan. Elise and Matt’s wedding was everything a wedding should be – two young people so crazy about each other and enjoying every single moment.
One of the things I love about Forbes of Kingennie is the Leannan Boat House, even on this winter day it’s a lovely backdrop to the Bride and Groom portraits.
Arriving at Elise’s mum’s house, which over looks the sea front in Arbroath the traditional flags where on display. A few shots of Elise’s and the girls preparing and some of the finer details, which make the day so special where, captured.
Arriving in style from Chauffeurs of Carnoustie the Groom and the boys welcomed guests to St. Andrews Church before Elise and her Dad arrived in the Royal Winsor vintage car.
A lovely ceremony was conducted by Rev Martin Fair, before the bridal party and friends and family headed of to Forbes of Kingennie near Dundee for their reception. The children and most of the adults indulged in many treats from the sweet carousel designed by One stop celebration, before the speeches commenced. The party started with the Apollos playing Wedding Dress for their first dance.
