>Passion in Perthshire, Forgandenny Wedding

>Time for another little update, as I am currently a couple of weeks behind.

October saw me travel to Perth for the wedding of Kerel and Paul.
Their ceremony took place in a very picturesque little church in a place called Forgandenny. It is a little remote and difficult to find unless you are familiar with the area. This unfortunately meant that some of the guests hadn’t arrived yet when Kerel made her way up the path in her bridal car.
The Vicar was fabulous and postponed the ceremony by half an hour to allow those who hadn’t made it yet, to turn up. This was much to his credit, as I think most celebrants would have pressed ahead with the ceremony.

Kerel was beaming from ear to ear when she arrived and was very eager to make her way up the aisle to Paul.

The ceremony was full of laughter and warmth and you could actually feel the love (I know that sounds extremely gushy) but it’s true. I shed a little tear, it isn’t the first time it’s happened at a wedding I’m covering, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. It can cause issue with my glasses steaming up though….. tricky when you have to see everything to ensure special moments are captured (I was going to say “on film” but of course this isn’t the case in the age of digital).

After the ceremony, we had a group photo in front of the old archway, the entrance to the churchyard. A small group of us then travelled to grounds of the nearby Strathallen school, to take some shots of the bridal party.

The staff at this venue were lovely…. every single one of them. All with a sense of humour and eager to please… I could not fault them in any way at all. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them on the day, and even though I was a supplier and not a guest…. I felt very well taken care of.

We did have one hairy moment where the upper teir of the wedding cake took a tumble and I just caught it, (whilst holding the camera in the other hand I have to add…… very very quick reactions if I do say so myself, not that I like to brag you understand! hahaha)…. the cake was very very nearly lost as it would have ended up on the floor.
Myself and the member of staff who was there just looked at each other in relief and had a laugh about it. Just in time as the Bride walked in, I place the top tier on the main cake…. MINUS the holder between the two. As I said to the wedding co-ordinator…. I’m sure she (the bride) would rather have the cake in one piece than worry about the holder being on display.
There really is no end to the lengths us photographers will go to, to ensure our wedding couples’ days run smoothly 😉
