Enchanted Forest 2013

I’ve been photographing The Enchanted Forest for years. I’m always laden with camera gear and dressed oh-so-sexily in warm clothes, wellies, a waterproof jacket and a cosy hat that makes me look like a child. As usual, I stocked up on handwarmers a few weeks in advance and prepared myself for all eventualities. Sadly, my camera’s rain cover and the ‘shower caps’ to keep my bags dry were needed as heavy rain descended upon us. When it comes to the crunch, my camera gear has to be kept dry and it really doesn’t matter that my own hood has to be discarded cos it comes between my eyes and my viewfinder.

The weather made it a more challenging shoot but, despite the difficulties caused by raindrops on my lens, wet hands and a slippery tripod, it was a pretty amazing night. The views, as ever, were gorgeous. It’s fascinating to see how the clever creatives behind the event can turn Faskally Wood into a new spectacle every year.

The title of the 2013 show is ‘Absorb’ and please permit me a moment of bragging: one of my photos from last year’s event is the backdrop to this year’s marketing materials, visible on the website, posters and (hurrah!) billboards across the country, among other things. It’s my first billboard. I’m pretty excited.

Anyway, as you’ll see from my photos, there’s plenty to be absorbed by in the forest this year. The bridge looks stunning in a sweeping net of fairy lights, there are colour-changing orbs resting on the loch, an interactive globe for touch play, a huge pseudo-moon in the trees, and (one of my favourite bits) a large stretch of forest lit up in a display that’s choreographed to orchestral music. I like to call it Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark but many have told me that’s not funny and it’s just showing my age ;)

I’m back there tonight so watch this space for more photos!

Kirstin & Jamie’s wedding photos – sneak peek

Here you go – a sneak peek at Kirstin and Jamie’s wedding photos. They married at Whitburn South Parish Church and partied at the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel on Saturday 7th September. Apart from the torrential downpour straight after the ceremony (aaargh!), it was a fantastic day. I’ll tell you more soon but, for now, here’s a photographic glimpse of their wedding:

Rob & Jude’s Wedding Photos – Sneak Peek

On Saturday 2 February, Rob and Jude married in St Adrian’s Church, Gullane, then feasted and partied at Greywalls Hotel. The wedding put a stop to the endless snow and rain, the bride was beautiful, the hotel and marquee were stunning, and we were in awe of the food that came from Chef Roux’s kitchen.

This is just a first peek at a few of the wedding photos. The happy couple, family and friends will see more soon and then I may reveal some more right here.

PS These pictures are also now on Facebook, ripe for tagging.
