Last Summer, we were lucky enough to be invited to photograph Nicola & Samantha's amazing Civil Partnership at the New Lanark Mill Hotel, near New Lanark - another one of our favourite jobs last year!! As you can see from the photos below, it was a great day - even the Scottish weather was in fine form!! It makes a huge difference to us (and to the finished photos) when everyone's up for having a good time and as you'll see, we had a tremendous amount of fun with everyone. This is deffo a wedding we'll never forget! Our day started off photographing bridal preparations at the New Lanark Mill Hotel. Normally we've got one group of girls to photograph at a wedding, but of course being a civil partnership we had two sets of bride prep photos to take, with Nicola & Samantha getting ready in separate rooms.
As we headed out for the ceremony at New Lanark, it was clear the sun was going to shine all day for Nicola & Samantha.
The ceremony itself was very emotional - there wasn't a dry eye in the house as Nicola & Samantha walked down the aisle with their Dads.
After the wedding ceremony was over, we headed out into the gardens at New Lanark for some family shots and bridal party photos. Look at all those bridesmaids - by far the most number of bridesmaids we've ever had at a wedding!!
After we finished the family shots, we headed on to the rooftop garden at the New Lanark Mill Hotel, which gives an amazing view over New Lanark itself, and of course the River Clyde. It really is a fab setting for wedding photos!
The day seemed to pass so quickly and before we knew it was time to head in for the Speeches and wedding breakfast.
After the meal, we headed out back into New Lanark itself, to make the most of the grounds and of course to get a photo in front of the Falls Of Clyde.
After we finished our evening bridal portraits, we headed back to the New Lanark Mill Hotel to take some more friends and family shots and of course to photograph Nicola & Samantha's first dance.
A huge thanks again to Nicola & Samantha for having us along to share their special day.
