Maryculter House Wedding / Danielle + Jonathan
It was one of the those days where the weather was so hard to judge. Rain showers, followed by bright sunshine, passing dark clouds returning to unsettle things. The original game plan was to have the ceremony outdoors, but with this unpredictability it was decided to have it indoors. Always better to be cautious.
We had a great laugh during the morning preps with Simone Saint on both the hair and make-up duties - you go girl! Danielle's mum brought along her baps (sandwiches) to keep us tied over, not to mention provided an endless supply of innuendo jokes. Jonathan and boys were having an equally fun time with Logan Sangster on form with his unique approach to his photography.
Danielle seemed calm as the bridesmaids buttoned her beautiful wedding gown. She looked stunning as the veil went in completing her transformation from bride-to-be to bride.
The wedding ceremony had two guest readings, a harpist providing the music score, and plenty of emotions as our couple exchanged their vows and rings.
Luckily the weather settled down so we managed to spend a majority of the afternoon in the stunning grounds of Maryculter House. It was great to see Danielle standing alongside her proud mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother for a rare generational photo. The rest of the photo shoot was a blast, laughter was contagious- even coming from behind the camera.
Another standout from this day was the evening. Danielle was super excited about booking the Macdonald brothers (yes, those dudes from x-factor). And they were absolutely fantastic. The dancefloor was buzzing, their set list was a great combo of oldies and modern classics. And before I left they started off their ceilidh set without any drum beat - such a treat to hear how good their musicianship was.
Congratulations to the happy couple, all my best!
