preparation is the key

By Jacqui Paterson In Weddings

Date: 9th of May 2015

Venue: The Park Hotel, Falkirk

I was really looking forward to photographing Lauren and Stuarts Park Hotel Wedding, such a lovely couple – I knew they would be easy to work with and I wasn’t wrong. I headed over to meet Lauren at her parents house in Grangemouth. From what I heard from Lauren’s parents and bridesmaids is that she is super organised, my kind of bride!  I should of known from the wedding notes she sent over, they were so detailed, I didn’t need to follow up on anything (thanks Lauren!). The dresses, shoes, flowers, jewellery were already organised for me photographing (excellent) so then I could concentrate more on photographing the girls getting ready and capturing those candid, natural moments.

Lauren’s dress was stunning! It really suited her shape and she had a lovely lace top to go over sleeveless dress – it was a really nice touch and completed her look.

Once the girls were ready I headed over to The Park Hotel to meet up with Stuart. He was a bit nervous but looked really smartly dressed in his outfit – I loved the colours of his kilt and jacket.

It was a beautiful ceremony filled with some lovely readings. Lots of funny moments too great for capturing on camera. After the ceremony we headed across the road to Dollar Park for family photos.

This is a great space for photos and the sun was shining (with a few brief moment of rain). After the family photos me, Lauren and Stuart took a walk around the park for some nice, romantic shots of them together. I loved all their photos and used a few in the post above.

We headed back to the hotel for the speeches. Both the father of the bride and the best man done a great job. Some really funny and suprising moments and as you all know I love the hear the speeches!

I headed away for dinner but came back in the evening. Both Stuart and Lauren agreed to come back over to the park for some evening photos. I always like to try and do this in the summer as the light is much better in the evening and makes for great photos.

The band played Everlong, Foo Fighters for their first dance (Im a huge Foos fan too!) so I was photographing, singing away and then everyone got up to start the party! I got some really great shots of people dancing and having a great time. We also set up the photobooth which everyone loved! Thanks so much to Lauren and Stuart for having me as their photographer. I have a ready great time. Congratulations!
