We had one of the best summer days for Denise & Scott's wedding so far. The Stair Arms Hotel in Pathhead was their chosen wedding venue.
The excitement and nerves start to build during Bride Prep, but Denise took this in her stride Finishing touches just before the First Look with Dad then downstairs for the Ceremony.
Such a beautiful wedding ceremony, and it was lovely to see all of Denise & Scott's friends & family witness the joining.

A very proud day for the bride's Mum and dad, Dad Malcolm takes in his beautiful daughter on her wedding day. Naturally, the Mother of the bride gets in on the action too.
Reception speeches can be a nervous time for the groom, you just don't know what embarrassing comments may come out.
Our newly married couple was up for a different creative style of portraits.
With the last touches of Denis's bride's preparation now complete, the room echoed with an air of tranquility. She stood in front of the mirror, her reflection radiating an ethereal beauty that was hard to put into words. Her ivory gown, with its delicate lace detailing, clung to her figure in a flattering silhouette. Shimmering with every movement she made. Her hair, styled in loose curls, enhanced her natural beauty, while the subtle makeup accentuated her features without overwhelming her visage. She was a sight to behold, a vision of pure elegance and grace.
It was time now for that much-anticipated moment – the first look at her father. The man who had raised her loved her and guided her through life's ups and downs. She could only imagine his reaction when he saw her. Would his eyes well up with tears? Would he smile that warm, proud smile that she knew so well? Or would he simply stand there, speechless, taking in the sight of his little girl, now all grown up and about to embark on a new chapter in her life?
As she took a deep breath, steadying her nerves, the door was opened. It was her dad, waiting on the other side. As the door opened, their eyes met. At that moment, the room was filled with an unspoken love and bond that only a father and daughter could understand. It was a touching scene, a beautiful moment frozen in time, one that they would cherish in their hearts forever.
A perfect beginning to what would undoubtedly be a day filled with love, laughter, and a lifetime's worth of memories.
