One of the reasons I love shooting St Andrews Wedding Photography is because my clients often have a personal connection to the university. In this wedding Angela, an ex-student, chose to return to marry her fiancé Alan. Angela prepared for the day in the student accommodation so I arrived in time to take some shots of her as she and her bridal party got ready.
Angela and Alan chose a humanist ceremony conducted by celebrant Suzanne Teed who gave a lovely personal and emotional ceremony that caused a few tears and much laughter. This personal approach gave things an intimate and sincere feel that is sometimes lacking in more formal ceremonies. It ended with a fun game of Mr. and Mrs!
St Andrews University has the most spectacular architecture so after the ceremony I took Angela and Alan around the quad, the cloisters next to the chapel, the lovely gardens and quaint little doorways to get some lovely portrait shots. We then re-joined the wedding party for the reception. The food provided by St Andrews was as always excellent. I must mention the cake, made by Angela’s cousin Ruth, it looked fantastic.
Evening entertainment was courtesy of Staffin Island Band, a brilliant ceilidh band who had everybody up and dancing on their feet in no time. After the first few dances I slipped away with Angela and Alan to Castle Sands to do some evening portraits of them before I left. This picturesque ruin set on a beach was the perfect backdrop to take some romantic shots of Angela and Alan and the perfect place for me to close the story of their gorgeous wedding.
Congratulations to Angela and Alan for getting married and creating such a wonderful day. I hope my images will help you to relive it again and again.
