Rufflets Wedding Photography | Laura & Neil

Relaxed St Andrews Wedding Photography

A spring wedding in St Andrews! I was so pleased to be back at Rufflets Hotel to photograph Laura and Neil’s wedding. 

A St Andrews Wedding Venue

If you haven’t heard of Rufflets Hotel then you are in for a treat. It’s a beautiful country house hotel set in fabulous gardens. The little bride over the stream is such a favourite spot for wedding couples to have wedding photographs taken. The garden suite is bright and airy and guests can enjoy their wedding meal looking out at the gardens through the French windows that take up a whole wall of the wedding room. Did I mention that the food is delicious! 

Laura and Neil got married in mid April and had great spring  weather. I’m convinced that St Andrews and especially Rufflets hotel have their own micro climate as the weather is always amazing! Getting married in springtime is always special. 

It was chilly but we got blue skies and the sun shone. In April the gardens at Rufflets are coming into bloom and the daffodils and blossom are out in force. 

Wedding Hair and Make-up 

Laura spent a fun morning with her bridesmaids having hair and makeup done by the very talented Sophie-Alexis. 

I loved photographing Laura’s wedding dress! It was a blush, tulle gown my Maggie Sottero. Laura went against tradition and wore bottle green shoes. I loved her look. 

It was deemed too chilly to have the outside ceremony that Laura and Neil had planned.  It was held instead in The Garden Suite, which is a lovely room where everyone could enjoy the ceremony in the warm and still look out at the gardens. 

A treat for everyone at the drink reception was the jazz trio, The Ritz. They kept everyone entertained throughout the afternoon. 

We managed outside for all the wedding photographs. My aim was to get Laura and Neil back to the party so as they didn’t miss a thing! They loved my documentary style of wedding photograph. This means that I don’t ask the bride and groom to pose.

The Wedding Party

Their guests sure know how to party! The speeches had everyone laughing and a few tears were shed by Laura and her sister who was her Maid of Honour. 

After some fantastic food and fine wine the room was cleared and the band set up for the cake cutting and the first dance.

While this was happening Laura and Neil and I headed out for just a few quick photos as the sun was setting. The light was amazing!

Wedding Bands Scotland

I hadn’t heard of their band before. They were called the Invitations and if anyone is looking for a great wedding band then I would recommend them. The dance floor was packed with party animals who were all up for a good night
