Saturday 16th September

Katrina Macleod, of Brown Place Wick and Andrew Manson of Pentland Place Castletown, were married at Bighouse Lodge, Melvich. Katrina got ready at the Bighouse, with bridesmaids including her sister Keri, who kept us all entertained! Andrew and his two best men Gary and Kevin then arrived looking very cool in their highland dress. The ceremony was carried out by Elaine Gray, and then we headed off to the beach for some pictures. The wind got up though and we had to head back to the shelter of the walled gardens pretty quickly. The day was beautiful, but probably too bright for my liking. The meal was at Bighouse, with everyone heading back to the Weigh Inn later on for the reception.

Friday 15th September

Jackie Stubbings and John Henderson, both of Ardwyn, Mid Keiss, were married at the stunning Olrig House by Rev. Oliver Vellacott. The couple have just built a new house, and only moved into it 2 days before the wedding, so had a real big task getting it ready in time. Jackie got ready at the new house with mum and two bridesmaids Lynn and Hannah. They arrived at Olrig House with Caithness Prestige cars. After a lovely service in the house, we went out into the stunning surroundings for the photography. It's one of the best spots in Caithness that I have photographed a wedding at, and had to watch the time as I it would have been easy to get carried away! We then travelled back to Wick for the reception at Mackays Hotel.

9th September 2006

Tracey Heppel of Finlayson Place, Thrumster and Graeme Miller, of Skitten, Wick were married at Thrumster Church by Rev Bill Wallace. Tracey was a little late back from getting hair and make up done.....! However she managed to get to the church almost on time! She arrived with Caithness Prestige Car Hire's white Rolls Royce. After the service we went to Lybster House for some photographs before heading to the Portland Arms for the reception.

Saturday 2nd September

Lindsay Bain and Mark Fraser, from Inverness, were married at Keiss Church on Saturday, in glorious sunshine. Lindsay got ready at her parents house, Auchingale in Keiss, before walking to church, led by two pipers, the Harvey brothers. After the wedding, we went to Lindsay's gran's house in Watten for some pictures before heading to the Weigh Inn for the reception, after I persuaded them to make a quick stop at a couple of unusual locations!

Friday 1st Sept

Nicola Falconer & Scott Farquhar, of St Clair Avenue, Scrabster were married at St Peter's and St Andrew's church in Thurso. Nicola got ready at her parents home in Halkirk, where the sunshine was almost too bright, a rare complaint for Caithness! The weather didn't last though and some torrential rain after the couple entered the church threatened to spoil the day. They were married by Murray Campbell from the Scrabster Mission. The rain passed over for long enough for us to get to the beach at Scrabster for some pictures before heading up to the Weigh Inn for their reception. Video was provided by Video Viewpoint.
