When Shona and Colin contacted me, asking if I would travel to Barra to photograph their wedding, I immediately said yes; I love Barra, so I was more than happy to travel down. I set off early the day before the wedding and spent some time taking landscape photographs of Eriskay and Barra before heading to the wedding rehearsal. Then it was back to the B&B for a good night’s sleep ahead of the big day.
The morning soon came and there were photographs to take of both the boys and girls getting ready, then a quick hop over to the church for the ceremony. It was a great church to photograph in, with lots of natural light and a wide central aisle. For the family and group photographs, we made use of the blooming spring machair in front of the church, then headed to the beach and to Castlebay Marina for some couple photographs.
The reception and dance were held at Castlebay Hall, and the sunny and warm evening saw the party happening both inside and out! After dinner, the tables were moved back to make space for the dancing and the party was in full swing when I headed back to the B&B before heading slowly home the next day.
