Seattle meets Scotland, a wedding at St Salvators, St Andrews and Hill of Tarvit, Cupar , Fife

Its always a huge privelage to be asked to photograph a couples wedding – and a huge responsibility!   Its particularly special when you have known the groom since he was a small boy!

I seem to have a bit of a theme going on here –  beautiful brides from across ‘the pond’ marrying handsome Scottish boys!

Abby got ready in a cottage in the heart of St Andrews  –  a very pretty setting.

The light in St Salvators is always beautiful – it is a real pleasure to photograph weddings here.  Made especially pleasurable by the wonderful minister  –  Donald McEwan
