I had the enormous pleasure of covering my third wedding of the week, when I photographed Tom and Nicole’s The Vu wedding. This lovely couple had their wedding at The Vu in Bathgate, West Lothian.
My wedding at The Vu began with photographing groom Tom and his best man. Tom looked very smart in his suit. He was nice and relaxed, very happy and smiley and looking forward to the ceremony. Nicole looked gorgeous in her white wedding dress, escorted to the altar by her dad. The Vu wedding ceremony was conducted by the awesome Rev. Liddle, a guy who knows how to entertain as well as to conduct the formalities. He had everyone in stitches with some of his one-liners and always ensures the Bride and Groom are relaxed and enjoy themselves.
Fortunately, the sun shone all day, for this wedding at The Vu ensuring plenty of outdoor wedding photography after the ceremony. After the obligatory group photos Nicole, Tom and myself spent around 20 minutes on our own shooting lovely wedding photos on the pier.
As is customary with all weddings at The Vu, the newly-weds were then cheered to the top table to rapturous applause, immediately followed by the speeches. These were good fun to watch and photograph, I really love capturing people’s expressions and emotions and there’s no better time to do that than during the speeches!
After enjoying a delicious The Vu wedding breakfast, there was enough time to shoot a few more contemporary wedding photos of the newly-weds. The evening guests arrived, signalling time for Nicole and Tom to cut their wedding cake. This was followed by the newly-weds’ first dances after which my job was complete.
A lovely The Vu wedding day for a wonderful couple made all the better by the beautiful weather. Congratulations to Nicole and Tom!
