ST SALVATOR’S CHAPEL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Cerys and Tom met at St Andrews University while their were both studying. Their love blossomed during. Roll on a few years and they were now back in town with all their families and friends for a fantastic Scottish wedding.

St Andrews was the perfect setting for their winter wedding and was a great chance to get both families together for a long weekend. Friends and family had come from all corners of the world to be with them on this very special day. This was are Anglo American wedding set in Scotland

Cerys and her bridesmaids got ready in a suite at The Old Course Hotel. They had a fantastic view of the waves rolling in over West Sands. It was a blustery day but there was no sign of the rain that had been forecast.

DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Cerys looked stunning as she arrived at the church. She wore a Suzanne Neville wedding gown, the one that she had always imagined she would be married in. Even as a little girl she could picture her wedding dress. 

She was walked down the aisle by her very proud Dad. After a very moving ceremony with beautiful readings and music Cerys and Tom walked back up the aisle and out into the winter sunshine. Hugs and kisses followed as everyone wanted to wish them well. The two Mums threw some rose petals over their exceedingly happy offspring.

While the guests all headed back to the warmth of The Old Course Hotel we took a quick trip to West Sands beach for just a few quick photos of Cerys and Tom. It’s a very special place for them both where they have spent many happy times walking and talking.

THE DRINKS RECEPTION (OR COCKTAIL HOUR FOR THE AMERICANS) AT THE OLD COURSE HOTEL 

Back at the hotel everyone was enjoying canapés and champagne in the conservatory.  It’s a beautiful room overlooking the championship golf course and it has a quite spectacular chandelier as its show stopping centre-piece. My style of photography is to photograph what I see and not to direct anyone or pose people. So during the drinks reception I am always looking for moments. Funny moments, emotional moments, kisses, hugs, laughter and smiles. The best photos are the ones that no-one realises are being taken.

SPEECHES AND THE DANCING IN THE BALLROOM

I loved listening to the speeches. What interesting lives these two have led, and they are so loved by everyone who was there. They are going to have a fantastic future together. 

After dinner and coffee Cerys and Tom took to the floor for their first dance. Then followed Mum and Son and Father and Daughter dances before everyone else hit the dancefloor to they party the night away. There was some cool moves at this wedding from all age groups and I got right in amongst them to get some dancing photos.
