This year we’re setting ourselves a new challenge – at the end of each month we have to choose our favourite five wedding photos that have featured on the blog. Yep, just five. “How hard can it be?” we thought. Very it turns out! But after much deliberation, and a few wines, here are our Photos Of The Month…
1. The one with the brooding sky
We may be biased, but we think Scotland does the best dramatic skies. And we absolutely love the way Dave Fallon has captured Natalia and John under these brooding clouds – so evocative!
They picked a venue a little off the beaten track for their love and laughter-filled celebration. With a laid-back vibe, delicious food (hello taco bar!), lots of fun touches and a mariachi band, it sounds exactly like our kind of party! Head here to see why we fell head over heels in love with their day…
2. Big moves on the dancefloor
We love it when a photo perfectly captures all the energy and atmosphere of the party. This image by Sean Bell, who was second shooting for Harper Scott Photo at Zara and Euan’s Kinnettles Castle wedding, makes us want to join in and bust out some big moves.
Zara & Euan’s day was inspired by vintage pin ups, board games and the rustic look.
3. Muddy boots and messy hair
We love a bride who doesn’t mind getting a bit muddy when it comes to chasing the light for incredible photos. After all, you’re only going to wear your dress once, so why not make the most of it? This photo by The Gibsons captures the moment perfectly.
Holly and Michael became husband and wife then danced the night away at their local village hall. Full of florals and bright raspberry tones, and with a cake that featured “a pooch and potatoes”, their wedding made us smile lots.
4. Autumn leaves and tartan trews
We love a pop of colour. The combination of autumn leaves and tartan trews, placed perfectly within the frame here by Lindsey at Mack Photo, is a total winner. And those loved up smiles are giving us all the feels.
Inspired by relaxed, rustic weddings, Jenny and Craig tied the knot in a Humanist ceremony at a privately owned castle north of Glasgow. With the Campsie Hills making a magical backdrop, they filled their day with DIY touches and a whole lot of love.
5. Soaking in the moment
If your photographer suggests heading out during golden hour (when the light is softest, just before the sun sets), then drop everything and run! This photo by The Curries shows just how wonderful it can be to soak in the moment together, while capturing these memories forever.
Jillian and Matt’s wild and romantic Scottish fairytale wedding took place at Borthwick Castle, near Edinburgh. Inspired by Harry Potter, their destination wedding was filled with magical touches.
January was a pretty beautiful month, we think you’ll agree. But just wait until you see what February is going to bring…
