The winter wedding of Susie and Chris
Okay, this weekend saw me travelling almost a thousand miles for a wedding. I drove the round trip of 911 miles to just south of Aberdeen in Scotland to the breath taking Drumtochty Castle for the wedding of Susie and Chris.
What makes this even more exciting is that Susie and Chris actually live in Australia and traveled over here for the wedding, so my 17 hours in the car pale into insignificance to the journey they made. I was assisted on the day by Tom Astley an up and coming photographer from Manchester Tom can be found at http://www.tomastleyphotography.co.uk/
Okay, this is a sneak peek, I am totally knackered after the weekend, I set off at 9 am on Friday and got home at around 6:30 pm on Sunday and shot on Saturday from around 9:30 till around 10:30 in the evening, so I am taking today off !
I wanted to do a quick sneak peek as the couple are jetting off for their honeymoon and I am sure they would love to see a few of the pics before they go.
I only met the couple after arriving at Drumtochty Castle, as we checked in Chris heard our name and came running over to say hello. The Susie came around the corner with a HUGE infectious smile on her face, that smile never left the whole time we were there as you will see. One of the first things Susie said to me was she could not wait to see what I did with her wedding dress, she said she is a bit of a blog stalker and has seen some of my wedding dress shots so wanted me to top them – a challenge was set down, so off Tom and I went to scout the whole castle to see where we could shoot the dress.
This is what we came up with
here it is a little closer, I should point out that when I asked her who’s dress she was wearing she looked at me with that HUGE smile and said, Oh, its an Ian Stuart wedding dress – as anyone who follows my blog will know I have a huge penchant for Ian Stuart wedding dresses, they are just so beautiful.
Here is a shot of Susie running down the stairs

The little lad in this photo – Master ‘M’ was a super star all day long.
