Meet Daisy

After losing our dear old friend Trooper 3 weeks ago, we heard of a litter of lurcher pups needing homes in the next village to us. Egged on by others in the village, Daisy came home to us today. So far (about 3 hours!) she's played for a bit and slept for a bit.

I'm sure you'll agree she's gorgeous...

Caroline & Paul

My first wedding for ages and my last in Scotland for a while. I'm glad to say that Caroline and Paul's wedding at Napier University's Craighouse campus was a great way for me to celebrate these two minor milestones.

Paul and Ecky were cool, calm and collected as they greeted family and friends. Looking good too!

A few last minute calls for Paul...

...but Caroline turned up on time and looked amazing .

Paul's first glimpse of his soon-to-be bride.

A candle lit specially for Caroline's Mum. This was a beatiful touch and was amongst several things that made the service very personal and unique.

The sun shone and all were able to enjoy drinks on the terrace with a stunning view of Edinburgh.

A quick walk round the gardens for a few photos and a bit of quiet time together as a newly married couple.

and so back indoors for the speeches. Caroline's Dad spoke very well ...

Even the younger members of the congregation woke up to enjoy the speeches.

Some humiliation is part and parcel of the best man's speech which was very well delivered.

The first dance closed the evening for me but was just the start of the party for Caroline and Paul's friends and families. It looked like it was warming up to be a great night.

Caroline and Paul, Thanks for having me at your wedding. I really enjoyed being in the company of you both and all your guests. Have a great Honeymoon and I'll be in touch soon after you're back.

Best wishes

Local Landscapes

I've been working through the archive of landscape photographs generated by my other blog To support my photo training venture which has started this summer, I'm putting together a small exhibition to put in a local gallery. Here are a few I've chosen so far.

You can find lots more of my favourites here.
