Another wedding coming up for FurrieBoots and this time we are heading to Aberdeen Beach Ballroom.

This Art Deco Building is a favourite of mine in Aberdeen and holds some good memories of Blues Awards Balls for Robert Gordon University.

Sunset on the Beach

This was taken a couple of years ago at low tide, I wasn’t out there in my wellies! I’d love to revisit this to see if I can improve on it. This is a bit harder now I am based in Newmachar.

I was visiting on Monday to go over the wedding that I will be shooting there in a few weeks and meeting with the couple that I am working for. The weather on Monday was fab if a little chilly, now just for it to be fine in June and not as cold!

A few larger blogs to come, but just now there have been a couple of little ones to let you know that I am still here… just not blogging as much as I should!

Well for the wedding of Sarah and Tom, what else could I title this post! I’ve known Sarah for over 15 years from meeting up at Sports committee meetings at Robert Gordon University, where she was the VP for sports and I was the Archery president. She and Tom got together 14 years ago, just before my now husband and I got together and I thought that they would tie the knot before I did, but how wrong was I!? Nearly 5 and half years after my own wedding, Sarah and Tom finally made it official at the Buchan Braes Hotel in Boddam. On the 30th of May, the day dawned a bit misty but with the prospect of the Haar being burned off, which it did and we got burnt along with it! Here is a sample of some of the pictures I took on that very sunny and happy day.

Obligatory Confetti Shot

As you can see, I had to contend with a lot of white and brilliant sunshine, how I wished for a bit of haze to help me out!

Blue and Games were the themes for the day

See told you Games were a theme of the day!

There were a variety of games for playing after dinner from Cash and Guns (with foam guns I may add, no bodies are hidden…) to Carcassonne, to Formula De that 10 people could play. It was a great day all round, even though the extraction fan on the kitchen roof was running through most of the ceremony (which I forgot about until I saw a video of the ceremony) and we all caught a bit of sun and went a little pink. Thank you Sarah and Tom for asking me to be part of your day, it just wouldn’t have been the same as just as a guest (even though I would have been in more of the photos!) Will leave you with my favourite photo of the day, though it has been hard to choose, and remind you that if you would like to see more photos (and order some too 🙂 ) then please do not hesitate to contact me on the website or facebook and I will send you the link and password to the gallery!

But things have been going on in the background.

Firstly, let me introduce my new website that can be found at www.furrie-bootsphoties.co.uk

This is my little site where I can display my best pictures and if you wish to buy them then please do so. If there isn’t a size or format on there or you wish a framed print, then please contact me through the website on the contact page or through the Facebook page.

I have had my second wedding (no, not my own but as the photographer) more about which I will blog later on.

And lastly, as some people have seen from my personal facebook page, I will be at the Glasgow2014 Commonwealth Games next month as a Clydesider so have been traipsing up and down to Glasgow for training and the like. As much as I would love to take the camera with me to document my time at Hampden, I won’t be allowed *insert sad face here* though I’ll be too busy anyway.

So hopefully in August, I can put my full attention back here to Furrie-Boots once I have recovered and be a bit more “vocal” on here 🙂

Happy Sunday!

On the 12th of July, I headed north to Gardenstown under an almost blue sky to shoot my first wedding.

Sunny Day

It was to be the same through the whole day, with an addition of light cloud cover towards the afternoon, but it wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of the bride and groom.

The sun was a bit too much for me, though didn’t feel the effects till yesterday. A few things noted for the next outdoor summer event that I may cover. So, here below is a few sneak peaks of Ian & Shirley’s Wedding in Gardenstown Church and afterwards at Thainstone House Hotel.

And this last one is currently my favourite out the ones I have edited so far.

Quiet Time

If you want to see the rest when I finish the editing, then don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll let you know the address of the gallery.

Also if you would like your event covered, whatever it may be, please feel free to email me at furriebootsphoties@gmail.com or leave a message or wall post on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/FurrieBootsPhoties and I’ll get back to you.

Happy Sunday!
