Let it snow

We hope you’re all having a lovely, chilled festive break (you’ll be full of cheese, whisky and unsure of exactly what day it is if you’re anything like us!).

We’ve been away chasing snow over Christmas (and in Jay’s case kilometres as he tries to complete a 500km road cycle challenge by the 31st). You can follow his progress over on Instagram if you’d like to see more on that. (And here’s our Elemental Instagram, in case you haven’t found us there yet).

We’re looking forward to catching up on our blogging over the coming weeks and sharing more of what we’ve been up to lately. It’s been an action packed year what with relocating to the countryside, our travels taking us to Canada, the USA, Iceland, Spain and Denmark, and lots of incredible shoots and weddings along the way.

Thanks to everyone who has made it such a great one. And wishing you all a very merry Hogmanay and lots of adventures in the New Year.

Jenna & Dan’s wedding at Drumtochty Castle, Aberdeenshire

We are always happy when our wedding travels take us to this part of Aberdeenshire. With its enveloping woods, quaint church and magical castle, there’s something so very special about Drumtochty Glen.

From the clay pigeon shooting in the morning to the bouncing dancefloor at night, Jenna & Dan’s wedding was full of fun, laughter, love and joy. It was an incredible day and we loved that they were so up for hitting the hills, despite the wind and rain.

Jenna & Dan – We loved getting to be part of your day and meeting all your wonderful friends and family. We hope your photos make you smile for many years to come.

Jillian & Steve’s wedding at The Walled Garden at Strathtyrum, St Andrews

Please excuse the blogging hiatus, we’re at the “whoa, where did the summer go?!” stage of wedding season. This happens every year, and yet somehow takes us a little by surprise each time! On the plus side, this means that we’ve got a ton of photos to share with you and we are very excited to be starting our catch up with Jillian & Steve’s super stylish and seriously fun day.

We’re always happy when our wedding travels take us to St Andrews – there’s something so very special about this little coastal town. And this time we were getting to explore a new (to us) place too, The Walled Garden at Strathtyrum. It was the perfect setting for a day full of beautiful, super sweet and fun moments. If we had to pick a favourite it would be the arrival of a page boy in a Lamborghini. Or maybe the big shapes being thrown not he dance floor. Or the hilarity during the speeches. We’ll let you decide…

Jillian & Steve – Thanks so much for inviting us along for the ride, we loved getting to capture your wedding story and hope the photos make you smile for many years to come.

Sarah & Bruce’s wedding at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Scotland

Where to even begin with how much we loved being part of Sarah and Bruce’s wedding?! Not only did it take place in one of our most favourite places in Edinburgh – the ever beautiful Botanics – but the sun shone all day, the laughter flowed and the good times rolled right through until nighttime.

As we took a walk through the gardens and basked in the incredible light that filtered through the redwood grove, we couldn’t help but think back to Sarah & Bruce’s eshoot, which saw us dodging Storm Gertrude in Edinburgh’s historic Old Town.

Sarah & Bruce – From the very first time we met, we couldn’t wait to capture your wedding story. Thanks for bringing us along for the ride – we hope your photos make you smile for many years to come!

Kirsty & Fraser’s wedding at Hopetoun House, South Queensferry, Scotland

Kirsty and Fraser are one of those couples who you meet and instantly wish you could hang out with more – you can just tell that fun times follow wherever they go. From friends flying in from New York to join them to the littlest guests who looked so proud to be part of the wedding party, the stables at Hopetoun were bursting with happiness as their guests watched them become husband and wife.

It was a day brimming over with love and laughter, friendship and family, incredible food and fabulous dancing.

Kirsty & Fraser – We are so glad we got to be part of your wonderful day! Here’s to your next adventure, as husband and wife…
