What a day, the sun was shining it was lovely and warm, back end of summer and we were filming our first wedding at the AlonA Hotel at Strathclyde Park, Motherwell! It was the morning of the wedding and off we went to Stonehouse and Larkhall for the filming of the bridal and the latter part of the groom preparations. Leigh had already had had her make-up applied so I was there to capture candid shots and details. Same with the groomsmen really, although no make-up there!
One thing that caught my attention was Leigh’s bouquet. It was made of different beads and buttons designed by Dawnies Buttons & Beads. Leigh and David had chosen a lilac and purple colour scheme, just love purple, it’s one of my favourite colours, so many shades of it. I had purple at my wedding 7 years ago! Her Ronald Joyce dress was simply perfect too and I’m sure you’ll agree she looks stunning in it. Karolina Anilorak of http://www.karolinaanilorakphotography.com from Glasgow was the couple’s chosen photographer for the day and it was lovely working with her.
Once back at the AlonA, we awaited the arrival of our lovely bride Leigh. A beautiful humanist ceremony was held in the huge Marquee at the back of the hotel. It was a pleasure to film and be a part of Leigh and David’s wedding. We’ve not filmed any weddings in Scotland since 2011 up in the Highlands, so it was great to go back up North. It took me two days to put the highlights together and I’m very pleased to say that the couple love them! Just love wedding filming! A few words about the AlonA Hotel is that it’s a lovely place to stay and work. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay and on the wedding day. The food, very scrumptious! If you get married at the AlonA, you get to go on the Merrygoround (Carousel) in the theme park at the side of the hotel for photos. Very different and great to capture.
