Seonaid and Alasdair – Strathaven Rankin Church and Lochside House Hotel

Seonaid and Alasdair got married in a beautiful and touching ceremony in the Rankin Church in Strathaven. It was a very special day, superbly well organised, and an absolute delight to photograph. This time even the bride warned the weatherman beforehand to be on his best behaviour and when a school teacher gives you a warning you had better take notice! “Wind to a minimum and absolutely NO rain under any circumstances. Got that?” she wrote on her Facebook page the night before. The Weatherman listened intently and paid attention to most of those instructions. No doubt hearing that Seonaid’s dad was a Head Teacher and the threat of that walk of shame and a wee seat outside the Head Teacher’s office seemed to do the trick. Of course I know from past experiences that Mr Weatherman has a wicked streak. He didn’t quite follow the first bit of Seonaid’s instructions and he huffed and he puffed with a light chilly breeze all afternoon. I’m sure the Lochside House hotel’s fine range of malt whiskies found favour with one or two guests after the big group photo outside!

Of course there were many more warm and loving photographs captured throughout this day and it was so evident that these two were just made for each other. Everything about the day was special but the 1936 Rolls Royce was a particular favourite of mine. It was spectacular! Then again so was the Lochside House hotel – a beautiful venue in Ayrshire with the most wonderfully attentive staff. Well done to all.

I would like to thank everyone for being so patient and generous with your time. Special thanks to Catherine and Ian, Morven and John, Ailidh and Andrew, David, Chris, Norman and James for all your hard work – guys it paid off big time! To Seonaid and Alasdair, I know you will have the most fantastic life together, and I hope it will forever be full of the joy and happiness I saw in you both on Thursday. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to play a small part in your special day and here are a few of my favourite photographs to remind you how special it really was………
