The Vu Wedding with James and Joanna

just the two of us

By Jacqui Paterson In Weddings

Date: 15th September 2017

Venue: The Vu, Bathgate

I was honoured to be asked to photograph Joanna and James’s Wedding at the Vu in Bathgate. Joanna is an old friend and Im also friends with the lovely bridesmaids so I was excited to be around such familiar faces. I joined Joanna and the girls as they were getting ready.

For those no longer with us, Joanna found some amazing ways to have the most important people with her on the day.

Joanna looked absolutely stunning in her dress.

I headed over to the Vu to see the boys and prepare for Joanna’s arrival.

In a beautiful twist to the day, James went to the top of the aisle to collect his bride and walk her down.

They had a lovely humanist ceremony performed by Melanie Leckie. Melanie helped them plan their vows so that the ceremony was more personal to them.

I love this shot of Joanna remembering her Mum

We were lucky to get a break in the weather so headed onto the jetty for some photos.

The bridal party.

Beautiful details.

Guests having fun.

We headed back into the Waterlily for speeches and dinner.

After dinner we headed out for sunset.

Joanna and James took to the dance floor foe their first dance as husband and wife.

Thank you to Joanna and James for having me capture their special moments.
