I first visited Islay in January 2012 with my young man on a sort of whisky/photography pilgrimage. There is something very special about this island. It’s a real effort to get there and perhaps that’s part of it, but even on the bleakest of winter days something about the landscape captivates you. There was an inevitable blog post a few months later which, through the power of google, led Lynn to contact me about photographing her wedding there in June last year.
Reading Lynn’s first email, I had a really good feeling about the whole thing. Her kindness shone threw her words and I was so excited to be invited to capture her wedding day! At the time Lynn told me her mother was fighting cancer and how much strength the family was drawing from having such a happy occasion to look forward to. Tragically Lynn lost her mother later that year, but she certainly made her proud that day in Islay. Lynn & Kyle’s wedding was brimming with love and laughter and their family and friends could not have been more warm and welcoming to us. This was an authentic Scottish wedding with real traditions and values at the heart of the day… an absolute joy and privilege to photograph.
It was wonderful to see Lynn & Kyle’s beautiful scottish wedding featured on Style Me Pretty a couple of weeks ago…
