Leanne and Nicks Summer Wedding at Springkell

After my first visit to Springkell, last year, I have been desperate to return. Like the venue in my last blog post, the Lodge on Loch Goil, it is a photographer’s dream location and every spacious room is filled with light and beautiful architecture. It is run by a very nice chap called James and unlike so many venues that are part of a bigger chain of hotels he actually lives here and, subsequently, I doubt you will find anyone who cares about a venue as much as he does. This makes my job much more pleasant! Leanne and Nicks summer wedding at Springkell was filled with a lot of fun, and swarms of children and bridesmaids, fuelled by one of the sunny days that seemed so common this summer (long may that continue).

Nick and Leanne were keen for me to capture photographs of each of them getting ready and I was happy to do so. Their rooms were on different floors and I could easily flit between them to capture the action in each location with no bother at all. Not only is it interesting to get pictures of both camps , as it helps tell the story of the day, but personally I am always amused by the differences between the room where the men are getting ready and the room where the women are getting ready. One is generally full of people who are running late and dealing with last-minute emergencies, have no idea how to wear any of their clothes properly, don’t know where their ties are and are often very stressed. The other is full of champagne and a fog of hairspray. Very often the bride asks me how the groom is getting along (and vice versa) and, for the purposes of pre-ceremony calmness, I usually lie a bit.

At the allotted time everyone made their way down the fabulously light staircase that was surely made for photography and into the civil ceremony downstairs. Following that the weather was still glorious so everyone went outside onto the lawn for a group shot of all of the guests, even those ones who always stand at the back, well away from everyone else, ignoring my continued pleas for them to join the party. As Springkell is set in acres of beautiful countryside there were a multitude of nice spots for photographs. On this particular day the wildflower meadow in front of the building (actually behind it, strictly speaking) was a riot of beautiful blue flowers (verbena perhaps?) We made use of this and captured some really nice images. As Leanne and Nick hadn’t managed to sneak any time together that day I decided it would be a good idea to leave them under a huge tree so that they could have a chat and enjoy being outside on such a glorious day.
