Helensburgh & Argyll Wedding Photographer – Laura and David
Laura and David have known each other since secondary school. They carried on as friends and then the friendship became a little bit more than friendship. It became LOVE. “Its like they’ve always been together” said Laura’s Mum when I was photographing the Laura’s preparations. So once they’d got their careers underway they decided to name the date and get married.
They were married at the Helensburgh Parish Church, having their ceremony in the new chapel attached to the church, also being the first couple to get married in the new chapel. David, his best man and his groomsmen are all close friends and they wore matching Argyll outfits with dark blue jackets and waistcoats and a dark blue tartan. And they looked superb. Laura arrived in a Beaufort wedding car and looked stunning in her white balloon type wedding dress with many layers of lace. She looked amazing.
After the ceremony and the canapés, we shot some group pictures outside and while the guests all made their way to the reception, the three of us met on a hillside road near Rosneath for some portrait pictures. It was starting to go dark by the time we arrived, but luck prevailed and there was just enough light for a session of pictures. Afterwards we went to the Cove Burgh Hall in Rosneath for the evening reception.
The main room in the Burgh Hall had been decorated by Laura and all her friends, and they did a superb job. After the wedding breakfast they had their first dance together amidst a cloud of dry ice – which was a surprise to Laura because David had arranged this and not told Laura about it, then after a few dances we all had to go outside where David presented Laura with a new car, something she really wanted for her daily commute – and something else she knew nothing about. Love knows no limits, as they say…!
It was a lovely day, and Laura and David are a remarkably handsome and happy couple who are so much in love with each other. It was pleasure to be their photographer and capture all their smiles.
