22nd December Last Wedding of 2007!

Wedding number 42 for the year, and the last of 2007. Not a long rest though as the 1st one of 2008 is only 2 weeks away!
Clare O'Brien and Andy Crawford from Bardnaclavan Place, Janetstown, were married in the Mill Theatre, Thurso. Both are involved in Thurso Players, hence the unusual choice of venue. It was a great place for a wedding, and it was a real fun day. It was freezing but in the few minutes we were outside we managed to get sunshine,rain, snow, a rainbow, a full moon and a sunset :-)


Did some more work with Natalie - very pleased with these!

11th December Ackergill Tower

Wedding today at Ackergill Tower. Liz Kennedy and Bill Ainscough. Again a very good day for the time of year, although very cold!

8th December Coul House, Contin

Todays wedding was a new venue for me - Coul House Hotel, in Contin, near Dingwall. Jane Thomas and Ian MacFarlane, both from Misterton, South Yorkshire were married here, on a lovely frosty day. I LOVED Jane's dress - and I guess I better mention the Vivienne Westwood shoes.... :-)
A great day, and very pleased with the images we got!

1st December Dornoch Cathedral

Wedding today in Dornoch Cathedral, an amazing venue. Alison Calder and Vas Constanti, both from London, although Alison is originally from Balintore. Reception was at Bunchrew House Hotel, Inverness.

Poland 20th-25th November

Just back after a few days over in Poland. Had a great time. I stayed in Gdynia, which is a great city, and visited Gdansk, which is also great and steeped in history. I am keen to go back over and spend more time actually seeing more of the country. Met some very nice people as well, who made me feel quite at home. I enjoyed the food as well, especially the soup - Zurek - I hope I got that right?? It's just amazing! Oh and the beer - Tyskie in particular - is great also!!
A few pictures from the trip.

8th November

Time to head back to Scotland, it has been a great week, had a great time, and met some amazing people. We made lots of great friends over there and I am already planning a trip back in springtime for a shoot. Thanks to all the Maltese photographers for a fantastic welcome and thanks to the UK and Ireland people who were great fun. Big thanks to Gordon Cowell, oops Gordon McGowan for all his help and encouragement during the week. Roll on X factor in January Gordon haha ;-)

7th November

Today was the last full day in Malta, so I hired a car and went out to shoot at a few places. First stop was Popeye Village - where they filmed the 1980 Robin Williams film/musical. As David Facey said, the film was shite but it's a great place!

After that I went to Selmun Palace and shot in a few locations around that area.

5th November trip to Gozo

Well just when I thought the early mornings were over, they got us up in the middle of the night!! 6.30am for goodness sake!! Trip to the island of Gozo. What a day, scorching hot, and guess what I wore - a black bloody shirt, because Gordon McGowan told me it was going to be a crap day!! Grrrr!!!!

Anyway - what an awesome place Gozo is - wish we had another day to spend there. It was great.
