friends and family coming together

By Jacqui Paterson In Weddings

Date: 2nd of April 2016

Venue: Houstoun House Hotel

I met Nadiya at the Houstoun House Hotel where she was getting ready with her family and bridesmaids. Everyone was so calm and ready ahead of schedule. So we had plenty of time to capture the action as it happened.

Putting on the final touches before we headed down to the ceremony.

I met Andrew and his bestman and brother Alistair as they were welcoming in guests. Both looked handsome in their kilts.

Nadiya was walked down the aisle by her Dad, Keith. Her family were emotional as they saw her coming down. It was a very sweet moment. There were lots of laughs during the ceremony. Nadiya and Andrew both looked so happy to become Mr & Mrs Fleming.

I knew it was going to rain soon after the ceremony so we were on a tight schedule to get all the photos done in the beautiful gardens outside. It was a bit cold but they both handled it so well and just really enjoyed their first moments alone together.

All the guests mingled in the foyer and enjoyed the celebrations.

I loved the theme of the table decor. Couples from books. The fabulous cake was done by Emmazing Creations.

Keith started off the speeches by telling everyone how proud he was of his daughter.

Andrew continues by thanking everyone for coming and the people who helped with the wedding and of course introduced his new wife.

Alistair finished up by telling us some funny storied about Andrew when he was a child.

All the guests then headed out onto the dancefloor to kick start the Ceilidh.

For our final moment, I took the bride and groom outside in the rain for one last photo. Those of you who know me know I love nighttime photography and I absolutely love this photo of them in the rain.

Congratulations to the happy couple and I thank them for having me as their photographer. It was a beautiful Houstoun House Wedding.
