Broughty Ferry weddings are always beautiful.
Surrounded by spectacular buildings and a gorgeous beach, there are plenty of picturesque settings to choose from.
Since the bride and groom, Laurie Helena Simpson and Scot Brown, had known each other since they were teenagers, they had firm ideas on the kind of wedding photographs they wanted. In discussions with the couple on the run up to their big day, they asked for images that were intimate and filled with natural beauty rather than posed shots. They wanted wedding photographs that captured their relationship and unique personalities.
Laurie and Scot’s marriage took place on a bright and sunny day at St Margaret’s Church in Barnhill, Broughty Ferry. The bride looked spectacular in a customised beautiful white fishtail gown and was accompanied by her bridesmaid Ashley and the couple’s daughter Helena and niece Mollie, who were flower girls. The groom Scot and his two groomsmen Tony and Adam also looked the part in their dashing and traditional kilts.
After capturing some amazing photo’s of the couple both inside and outside the church, we took a trip to Broughty Ferry pier where I was able to use the beautiful backdrop of Broughty Ferry Castle and the Tay Road Bridge to create some spectacular WOW shots on Broughty Ferry pier.
Afterwards we made our way to the reception that was taking place in another remarkable location – Piperdam Golf & Leisure Resort. On arrival it was clear how much thought the couple had put into creating a mood that was both classic and romantic. The room had been stunningly decorated with gorgeous flowers and spectacular centrepieces.
The speeches were funny and emotional with the father of the bride Ronnie, welcoming Scot into the Simpson family by presenting him with a Bart Simpson toy dressed in a kilt. He then went on to wish his daughter Laurie all the very best in her new role as Mrs Brown by presenting her with a copy of The Broons Annual.
For Laurie and Scot, one of the most important elements of their wedding was having all their family and loved ones together. After the meal, everyone had a chance to relax, chat and celebrate whilst raising a glass to the bride and groom.
The day ended on a high. In keeping with the traditions of a Scottish wedding there was plenty of drinks, dancing and laughter, leaving the happy couple with lots of beautiful memories of their special day.
Broughty Ferry weddings are always beautiful but Laurie and Scot’s special day was more than that, it was perfect and Chris Scott Photography was honoured to be part of their day.
