Reids Photography » Scottish Wedding Photographer

2013 got off to a great start for me on the 3rd of January with Michael and Sharon’s Balbirnie House Hotel wedding, near Markinch in Fife. This was my first time shooting a wedding at the great award winning hotel, a beautiful venue in a great location and one I’d gladly enjoy shooting at again.

It had been raining a lot in the days leading up to the wedding, but Michael and Sharon were blessed with a dry, if still a little chilly, January day and later a fantastic sunset which we managed to get a few bride and groom portraits against.

Kudos to Sharon and Michael for being up for going outside and allowing me to capture some great photos, and for not showing how cold it really was outside.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Boniface!

These are some of my personal favourites from the day, but I’ll leave the final words of this post to Sharon:

“Everyone loves the preview photo on Facebook, and us too of course! We wanted to thank you for all your efforts on the day as you made everyone feel comfortable and almost didn’t notice they were being photographed. You also kept everyone inline which with our friends and family is no easy task!”

  • Peter Burkwood - Great work Mr Reid, really nice set. Some great OCF and those skies! Jealous…

On 1st of December I was the wedding photographer in St Andrews for Alasdair and Pamela’s St Salvator’s Chapel wedding in St Andrews, the weather on the day was cold and frosty but we were lucky and it was a bright and dry day.

The ceremony took place at St Salvator’s Chapel, part of the University of St Andrews, it is a beautiful 600 year old chapel right in the heart of St Andrews.

The reception was held at Rufflets Country House Hotel, a luxury hotel on the outskirts of St Andrews with beautiful gardens at the rear.

I have to hand it to both Pamela and Alasdair for being willing to brave the cold, (on several occasions) and venture outside without questioning me for some amazing portraits.

Many congratulations Mr and Mrs Robertson!

The December weather played nice and we had a wonderful frosty, but sunny day.



Congratulations Mr and Mrs Robertson.

That’s it for now, more images will be posted soon.

A few weeks ago I met Greame and Jessica at the Old Course in St Andrews for a post wedding photo shoot. These shoots, often called love your dress, cherish the dress or rock the frock, are a chance for the bride to get back in to her wedding dress and capture some beautiful bride and groom portraits, all without the time constraints of a wedding.

Greame and Jessica were married in Stirling a couple of months before, and they wanted to come to St Andrews as they got engaged at the Old Course Hotel.

Below is a small selection of some of the photos we captured on the day. If you are interested in a similar love your dress photo session please get in touch, like Graeme and Jessica you don’t have to have had me as your wedding photographer to book one of these sessions.

James and Zara, and their families, flew all the way from Australia to have their humanist wedding at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews. Even though the weather didn’t want to play nice, we had a great time and didn’t let the rain stop us going out and about in St Andrews to grab a few portrait shots for them.

Unlike the rest of the UK, Humanist weddings in Scotland are fully legal and no other ceremony is required either before or after your humanist wedding. One of the benefits of a Humanist wedding is that you can get married where ever you like, be that on a beach, in the forest or in your back garden, as long as you have a registered Humanist celebrant your wedding is legal.

James and Zara’s was a small intimate wedding at the Old Course Hotel, with just a few guests but a stunning location and a fantastic couple. Congratulations James and Zara!

  • Rob Dunning - To get such natural pictures from such an intimate wedding takes a lot of skill and experience. Well done Stuart, fantastic pictures that I’m sure James & Zara will cherish for many years.

  • John Johnston - Completely agree with Rob, fantastic captures pal, they look so happy in every one of them photos.

A beautiful August day saw me photographing Catherine and Grants fantastic wedding at the stunning Craigsanquhar House Hotel, near St Andrews. Craigsanquhar House weddings are a dream to photograph, the house and the grounds are fantastic and the views are amazing, put these together with a great couple like Catherine and Grant and you have a recipe for an amazing wedding.

Each and every wedding I photograph generally always has its own unique parts and this Craigsanquar House wedding was no different, one of the unique aspects of Catherine and Grants big day was the ring bearer being a barn owl, a surprise for everyone except the couple, the bestmen, (there was two) and myself. It all went as planned and the guests were suitably amused when the bestmen pretended to have lost the rings and then surprised when the owl swooped in to make its entrance landing on Grants hand. A plan that was well executed and worked very well.

The amazing views from Craigsanquhar create a great backdrop for wedding photos,and we took advantage of this on the day. Below are a few of my favourite images from Catherine and Grants wonderful Craigsanqhar House wedding.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Singer.

A little bit of a rainy day for Zara and James yesterday, but that didn’t stop us getting some great photos, including this one:

Patiently playing chess while waiting to see if the rain will stop.

It didn’t, but we did manage to get outside for a few shots at the Castle and Cathedral ruins. Well done guys for ignoring the rain and getting outside, and a special mention to Tim, the umbrella man, you did a sterling job!

Have a great honeymoon guys.
