Neil and Jade got married at the Duck Bay Hotel right on the banks of Loch Lomond.
I have to say that when we arrived at Jades house beforehand she was the calmest bride-to-be I have ever came across on the day of her wedding. Its not often a girl in full make-up, wedding dress and perfect hair asks if your sure you dont want a cup of tea !! Best friend and ‘Man of honour’ Ross was also on hand to help soak up and nerves. Things were slightly more tense at the Duck Bay with the lads (but isnt that always the way?) However the legendary Mrs Thomson was on hand at Duck Bay to make sure everything was running as smooth as possible (usual)
Because Duck Bay is situated so near the water there can be the unfortunate side effectf o the surround grounds retaining any rainfall for a while. This meant finding a different areas to shoot our groups and couples shots at. The unlikely ‘haunted house’ just along the road from the hotel proved to be an idea backdrop for some of the shots with the overspill carpark (shot 2 above) working really well for us as too. There is a maxim in photography – its not what you look at, its how you ‘see’ it. Obviously it also helps to have Loch Lomond right next to you………..
