Pollok House Wedding – Kirsty and Kevin
No pressure at all with this Pollok House wedding. Just one of my friends who I have known for many years, who happens to be a professional photographer in Australia. Yikes ! I shot Kevin’s sisters wedding a few years ago (the lovely Fiona at the Grand Central Hotel) which was nerve-wracking enough – but now to be shooting a fellow pro’s wedding really was an experience. But I would need to say, a very happy experience.
In fact I’d go so far as to sat that Kevin and Kirsty actually made it easier for me by being fellow professionals. They knew exactly the pressures, time constraints and weather conditions that may have affected the pictures and help me make sure we got some outstanding pictures. Like many expat couples Kevin and Kirsty have a very strong, very evident bond. They got ready separately (mostly) before rendezvousing at their temporary flat where Kirsty was getting ready. From there it was onto Pollok House – bride, groom, bridesmaids and bestman- for the pictures before the ceremony. I cannot tell you what difference this makes to the flow of the day. Its wonderful but I expect it’ll be a hard sell to most couples…….
After the shoot, guests began to arrive and at 3pm the ceremony began. Kirsty and Kevin entered the room arm in arm and enjoyed a lovely humanist ceremony. After which we had a few more formal family pictures to take care of before everyone made their way to Hyndland for the wedding reception and a fantastic party. As many of Kevin’s family hail from the islands you can guarantee that there were some expert ceilidh dancers on hand. It was a fantastic day and one that I look back on with great fondness. Not just because it’s a great set of pictures which gave me sleepless nights before the day – but because there is nothing better than seeing one of mates having the best day of their life.
