We asked Alex to write something for the blog that we could share. I had a tear in my eye reading this, no one has ever been so kind, Alex thank you so much. It really does mean so much to us. They were married at St. Machars Cathedral & Thainstone House Hotel.
For our wedding we knew we wanted to support as many local suppliers and small businesses as possible. I managed to source many things (my veil, bits for the centrepieces and gifts) from Facebook and eBay. Our top table favours came from a local chocolate company, my dream dress was made by Isabelle Randall who has a shop in Aberdeen. One of our best finds, however, was Janie Barclay Photography.
When we first met Janie she was relatively new to the business but we both knew right away that she was the right photographer for us. We loved her style and her personality shone through her work. We booked her over two years before our wedding and consider ourselves loyal customers! The whole experience was a joy, from the initial meeting to inventing a code word when we wanted to be left alone on the day (banana!) to seeing the end result and sharing all our photos with our loved ones.
What we have is not only a selection of amazing pictures that we will never tire of looking at but a team of photographers we hope to keep in touch with and use again in the future.
