29 Mar Sara and Alan at Meldrum House Hotel
I think Sara booked me to photograph her wedding longer ago than anyone else has ever done. Thank you Sara! Sara and I became friends and she was my most faithful visitor at almost every wedding exhibition we were at……. understandably so we were both very excited when the day actually dawned!
Sara and Allan have a very close family. Sara’s parents, Dot and Alan, two little children Sophie and Max and Allan’s mother Karen were totally involved with Sara and Allan on the day. Sara had the foresight to be using Alison at North East Events as her wedding co-ordinator. Alison was fantastic. I even over heard her say to Sarah at one point: “No you go and sit down, I’ll change the baby’s nappy!” I would highly recommend Alison to anyone.
Little Sophie was a gorgeous flower girl, and baby Max was also very obliging. I didn’t hear him cry once even amidst all the commotion. Sara’s bridesmaids were a great help with Max while Sara was getting ready – in fact everyone lent a helping hand.
The wedding was held at Meldrum House Hotel which looked as lovely as ever. The fires were lit and it all looked very warm and elegant on a cold December night. We had some fun in the dark with the photos! That’s one of the great benefits of a Winter wedding……
The cake was gorgeous and made by Bev at Cakes by Design. The colour theme of red co ordinated so perfectly with the beautiful bouquet of red roses by Isla Duncan of Isla Duncan Florists. Sara’s dress was very elegant. It was designed by Rosetta Nicolini at Berketex and her make up was by Lauren at Flawless Beauty. You can see how gorgeous she looked.
The family is gathered for a photograph in front of the fireplace at Meldrum House . The hallway is such a lovely setting for a family group
and finally Sara and Allan on the grand staircase ……
