Wedding photography at The University of Glasgow - Maria and Lee

3rd June 2015

It is really great to be photographing a wedding of someone you know, but it can be a bit more nerve racking as well. The wedding was of Maria and Lee at The university of Glasgow and then onto Crutherland House hotel. Maria was the sister of friends of mine and I knew before I heard of any of the details that it would be an extremely stylish event. I wasn't wrong! The men (and boys) were in tuxedos which looked magnificent. Maria's dress was absolutely amazing with a feather detail on the top. Not many girls could get away with this dress but it suited Maria down to the ground. As did her shoes. How she managed to dance all night I will never know but gold stars to her! There was only one mishap that occured upon the bridal party arriving at the church. I knew they were all arriving in a camper van so I was focusing on photographing that at the University and not on the blue taxi in front. Only to notice after a moment or two that Maria was in the taxi. The camper van had broken down at Charing Cross where a taxi had to be hailed down to get the bride to the church on time. Mega stress, but hey its stories like that that make a wedding in my opinion! The day ran much more smoothly after that. It was a beautiful ceremony in the chapel followed by Lee literally dancing down the aisle (a first for me). Then it was pictures in the (rather blustery) cloisters. The reception was fantastic with a cake of cheese, selfie sticks, photobooths to name a few things that made the day. Not to forget the "Essex "photograph of a load of lovely ladies which then erupted into song. Think the videographer got his clip of the year there! Anyway, here is how their wonderful day went:
