Loch Lomond wedding Photography – Debbie and Stephen

Loch Lomond Wedding Photography

Debbie and Stephen Church chose St Kessog’s Roman Catholic Church in the pretty village of Balloch, on the shores of Loch Lomond for their traditional wedding ceremony.  Debbie got ready at her mum and dad’s house.  I arrived at the house so I could take some shots of her as she got ready.  I love it when the bride can get ready at her family home. It gets the day off to a really special start.  We made the most of it and went out into the garden so I could take some lovely shots of Debbie with her mum, dad and grandad and a few shots of Debbie on the garden swing (which she loved playing on as a child)

I met up with Stephen and his groom’s party at the church.  They all looked very smart in traditional Scottish dress.  And there were a good few additional kilts worn by several other guests.  Videographer Ali (from Piece of Time Media) was also at the church (it always nice to work with him)

I’ve seen a lot of wedding dresses in my time but I have to say Debbie’s was gorgeous and coupled with subtle make up and elegantly pinned hair she looked stunning.

Debbie is a guide leader so as a surprise as she left the church her guide pack lined the steps to greet her out of the church.  It was a delightful little touch.  Then we jumped into the wedding car and down to Balloch pier where friends of the family welcomed Debbie and Stephen onto their boat to take them down beautiful Loch Lomond to the reception at the Cruin.  It was such a beautifully sunny day.  The occasion was quintessentially Scottish but the sky was most definitely Mediterranean.  From the boat we enjoyed watching a sea plane land at nearby Cameron House Hotel.

Debbie really impressed me by kicking off her wedding shoes and climbing onto the front of the boat so I could take some great shots with the Loch and Ben Lomond in the background.  (My kind of girl!)   You rarely get to see the top of the Ben but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.  People always say you can’t plan the weather for your wedding but this one honestly felt like somebody had!

Guests were waiting at the pier at the Cruin to welcome the newlyweds.  The Cruin is a lovely venue, one of the reasons I love shooting weddings at the Cruin is that it has spectacular panoramic views across the loch to Inch Murrin Island and Ben Lomond.  Once on dry land I took more portrait shots of Debbie and Stephen around the Cruins pretty walled gardens before taking some family and group shots.

Everybody enjoyed a drinks reception outside in the sunshine.  Debbie had thoughtfully put out bottles of Avon Skinsosoft for guests to use to protect them from the midges (I did mention she’s a guide leader, they’re a thoughtful and organised bunch!)

Speeches were before dinner and followed by a lively ceilidh band who had everybody up and dancing.  Before I left I took Debbie and Stephen outside for some quick portrait shots as the sun went down.  I took some shots of them by the pier, by an old fashioned lamp-post near the patio and under the pretty pergola decorated with fairy lights.  A fairy-tale image to round of a fairy-tale wedding and the perfect shot to close the story of Debbie and Stephens day.  Congratulations to both of you for getting married.  I hope my images will help you to relive your day again and again for many years to come.
