Claire & Richard, Lodge on Loch Lomond

It was just over a year ago that we had the pleasure of meeting this lovely couple.  Back then Claire was the bridesmaid for her sister Laura but now it was her time to be the bride!  We already knew the Mcbride family knew how to enjoy a wedding so we were very much looking forward to capturing Claire & Rich’s big day.  Loch Lomond is a special place for them and The Lodge on Loch Lomond was the perfect place for their winter wedding.  The forecast had predicted wet, windy and wintry conditions and for once they weren’t wrong, but a bit of Scottish weather wasn’t going to dampen anyone spirits.  Sister in Law Kay, did a great job with the girls make up whilst brother Jamie was taking care of the newest member of the family, JJ, their youngest guest at only 12 weeks old.  Special mention must also go to Thomas, Rich’s nephew who looked so adorable in his little kilt.

Claire & Rich your planning was not without it’s ups and downs…planning a wedding when you are so far a part can’t have been an easy task but it all came together perfectly (but what else would we expect from a wedding planner!)

We loved that you didn’t let the weather spoil your plans, our mad dash along the pier is something we won’t forget for a while…it was freezing! We know that there was a very special person missing from your big day but the balloon release was such a touching tribute for your Mum, and what better spot to do it from

Claire we are seriously impressed with your cake, you did a fantastic job and I am sure it tasted as good as it looked.  It was great to see the party in full swing, “The Blackjacks” were on great form and we bet they kept the dancefloor full all night.

It was a great day and just lovely to see all the family again (and to meet Rich’s!) Look forward to getting together soon to design your album….here are a few of our favourite’s in the meantime.
