Wedding at Macdonald Norwood Hall Hotel

Anja’s and Mike planned their wedding long ago, it was supposed to be a short but beautiful ceremony in the old castle call Macdonald Norwood Hall Hotel. Yet these intricate plans are spoiled by the plague? We did not expect that when signing the wedding contract, nothing would be as simple as we thought. Every detail would be discussed in detail, the ceremony was to take place in a beautiful interior ... and yet not completely. It started with the wedding being translated several times because of something none of us could have expected in the 21st century, the plague. So we postponed the wedding, because of lockdown, because of the need to perform tests, but that was not the end of our adversities. When I was ready to go on the commission, it turned out that the son of the bride and groom must have tests and the wedding must be again [scattered from Friday to Saturday. We were full of hope that everything would take place on the final date ... And it did.
But unfortunately, due to the plague, we were ordered to put on the masks during the ceremony, so Anja decided that we should take everything outside, because there might be no masks. In Scotland, an outdoor wedding sounds like trouble, especially in late summer and fall, it always rains. That day turned out to be kind to us, it shone a beautiful sun and until the end of the ceremony it was with us, just like delicious moods. Even the bride and groom's friends surprised them and transferred some German traditions to a Scottish backyard. Anja and Mike had to pass a sheet with their names on them as a sign of their enduring and cooking love. After that champagne in the garden, why not?


Wedding at Duthy Park

A story written with love and driving force was supposed to happen to me at Agata and Hubert's wedding. Already meeting these couples at the pre-marital meeting and discussing the details, I knew that without a motorbike this story would not take place. Hubert and Agata are passionate about old cars and motorbikes, so it is logical that here without a session on a motorbike in the open air will not take place. Scottish castles, Scottish beautiful beaches, and the old motorbike ... this is what people like me like best. Bust let us start from the beginning. This story did not start with Scottish cliffs, but with a beautiful ceremony in a conservatory, among the wonderful exotic tortures and other plants. Agata and Hubert said the sacramental "yes" to each other in the winter garden in Aberdeen, in Duthy Park. Surrounded by greenery, in a Park in the Granite City of Aberdeen a family history began, which is written with love for heavy music and heavy old bikes, so a solid start and the foundations for a love for a lifetime. The wedding session of this couple took place twice, once during the ceremony in green park ... And the second, more on that later.
After the touching ceremony, a beautiful celebration among the unearthly fragrant flowers, we drove to the hotel, where he stole the entire wedding cake from the show. Unique, inspired by the music that Agata and Hubert listen to. I accompanied them for a moment on this most important day to leave the company and meet at 5 am the next day, at sunrise. Dunnottar Castle a ruined medieval fortress located upon a rocky headland on the northeaster coast of Scotland, about 2 miles south of Stonehaven beautiful weather welcomed us. Surrounded by cliffs, with the dog of my clients, we set off to capture these moments at sunrise. at the beginning I was afraid of the German Shepherd at the wedding session, but it turned out that it perfectly matched the script. Against the background of the historic castle, where Robert the Bruce used to visit, we captured love and moments in the frame.


Wedding at Logie Country House

Maria and Andrzej are an extraordinary couple whom I was lucky to photograph. Both with passion, both filled with love for each other. When I first went to see the place of the wedding ceremony, which is to be held in this atmospheric, historical place, I was captivated.
The Logie Country House is a magnificent thirteen bedroomed fortified tower house on a Scottish Country Estate dating back to 1472. The house is surrounded by lawns and ancient woodland. Frequented by deer, red squirrels, hawks, swallows, and a host of wildlife. When I cross the threshold of this house, we feel the atmosphere of the Scottish countryside, warmth, and peace. voted Best Scottish Aberdeenshire wedding venue. The 17 bedroom house is set in one hundred and thirty acres of beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside, 16 miles west of Aberdeen in the Royal Burgh of Inverurie.
Until now, Maria had been working here, taking care of every detail of the wedding ceremony for clients, and now she had to live one of the most important days of her two life in this magical atmosphere. Now it was she and Andrzej who were preparing to reunite with the marriage vow forever, surrounded with family and best friends. I felt not as commissioned, but as if I were attending a family gathering, relaxed, full of love and warm atmosphere. I was personally impressed by the newlyweds' bedroom and the bathroom with a window to the garden.
Three generations of Maria’s family took an active part during the preparations. I listened to parables of family memories spoken from the tear in the eye. Taking this opportunity, I was able to capture the grandchildren with grandparents who live in Poland and visiting Scottish children on the special occasion and celebrations. Due to the distance, these meetings were even more filled with emotions and happiness. To capture such multi-generational portraits during a wedding is a lifetime souvenir. Every decor, every detail of the ceremony and clothing was chosen carefully and with great taste.
The ceremony itself was embellished with a special marriage oath written for these occasions. In both the Scottish rite and elements of Polish tradition. The bride's father proudly led his daughter to give her to another man, so that he would love her with all his heart to the end of his days. Touching ceremony and after we turned to congratulations among the historic rooms and furniture, we were looked at by the pictures of the generation who had been wiping these residences over the last 500 years.
We managed to sneak out for a photo session with the married couple, although the rain was starting to fall, our moods were still hot and cheerful. The food, decor and atmosphere of the ballroom were indescribable. On the table, among the decorations in the boohoo style, there are family photos of the Bride and Groom. The Voice band played to the dance, but also conducted games and traditional wedding rituals characteristic of Polish tradition. I even know who will stand on the wedding carpet next, who caught the groom's bow tie and who the bride's veil… See you soon.
