I first met Matthew and Gillian a couple of years back when I was the photographer at Gillians Brothers Wedding in Birkhill castle. Gillian and Matt live in New Zealand, on the beach on the North Island but came home to get Married at Kilconquhar Estate.
Gillian was very relaxed about the whole day, which is a great starting point. I found her getting ready in one of the lodges on the estate surrounded by family and friends
Matthew had chosen his Father as Best man, apparent most of his friends are beach bums and couldn’t afford the flight from New Zealand – so his Father said anyway
It’s great to capture the first meeting between Bride and Groom at the top of the aisle
The service was conducted by Sofia Semple, a lovely Registrar from St Andrews
Gillian was determined to show the folks back in New Zealand that the weather is great in Scotland, even in January so we took all the photographs outside
The speeches were very good, as a Wedding Photographer, you see loads of Speeches and they are always a good laugh
Matthews Dad was running a quiz based on multiple choice questions about Matthews childhood, I dont think there was a prize for the winner.
Matthew and Gillian, thank you for choosing me as your photographer on Saturday, it was lovely to see you all again and I’ll be sure to look you up next time I am in New Zealand
