Wedding at St John Cantius, Broxburn and The Cairn Hotel, Bathgate

>A few weeks later saw the wedding of Agnes and Robert take place at St John Cantius RC church, Broxburn followed by reception at The Cairn Hotel, Bathgate.

I took on multiple roles throughout the day including dresser to the bride, lacing her dress up along with the chauffeur….. as the bridesmaids left before it was tight enough. Punchbag, to a little boy, who felt the need to approach me outside church and punch me in the stomach (only a few weeks after surgery, I hasten to add). I confess this took the wind out of me for a little while and made concentrating on taking photographs extremely difficult. However, as most of the wedding party and guests were smokers…. there wasn’t very much I could photograph at that point anyway.

Things were rather fraught later in the day also, when the “wedding planner” at the venue refused to allow me to get into an elevated position to do the group shot. I was told that the windows did not open (which was infact untrue, as I had suspected).

Disaster averted, bedroom window opened and group shot captured……. It was time to head home. And what a relief I can tell you………..

(As an aside…… I think it’s probably best I don’t say too much more about this wedding, as I understand the couple are suing the venue, Dj and car company)

Some images from the day…….
