At the beginning of August I was the wedding photographer for John and Lynn’s Old Course Hotel Wedding. The Old Course Hotel is a fantastic venue at any time of the year and, fortunately, one I get to photograph a lot of weddings at.
With everyone travelling to St Andrews for this wedding the celebrations really started the night before with the pre-wedding party at Greyfriar’s Bar, my first chance to get to know a few of the guests. John and Lynn asked if instead of a normal engagement shoot I would take a few photos during the party and display them during the meal on the wedding day, something I was happy to do, even editing the images in to the early hours of the morning!
I left with the party in full swing knowing that there would be a fair few sore heads the following morning and that I had a lot of editing to do to get the images ready for viewing the next day.
The wedding day itself started for me with Lynn at Sophie Butler’s Hairdressing in St Andrews after which, as the guys didn’t want any preparation images I then headed down to the Old Course Hotel to meet up with the bridesmaids in their room.
Weddings at the Old Course Hotel nearly always take place in the Conservatory, a beautiful light and airy space whatever the weather, not that the weather was a problem for this wedding, a little windy for some of the golfers playing in the Ladies British Open on the Old Course apparently but nothing that caused us any problems.
After some very emotive speeches from John and Lynn’s sons, and of course John’s Speech itself the party really got going, with some excellent dancing, particularly Scott and Craig’s duelling Banjo’s routine, they partied well in to the night.
Below are a few images from John and Lynn’s wedding day, feel free to leave a comment if you wish, I always enjoy reading them, as I’m sure the bride and groom do too!
