Loch side wedding portrait - Creative destination wedding photographer - Loch Lomond wedding photographer - Babb Photo

Scotland. It’s a rainy morning on Loch Lomond and the mist hangs low on the Loch. Jess and Gordy and their friends and family have travelled from across Scotland, the UK and from Nashville where Jess comes from, for their destination wedding on the banks of the Loch. Gordy spends the morning playing golf in the drizzle, with the boys, as Jess is her room having the final touches made to her hair and make up. Gordy and the wedding party put on their kilts, adjust their button holes and pull up their socks, before toasting with a beer and sipping whisky from a hip flask. In Jess’ room they sip bubbles and chat. Jess’ mum comes in, looking beautiful in her purple dress and she’s happy and sad all at the same time, as her daughter is about to embark on her new life in the UK. Time slips away and Jess puts on her dress, fixes her veil and gets ready to head out on to the Loch for her wedding ceremony. Gordy waits with his best men, as guests chat and laugh, while huddling under umbrellas. A piper plays the bag pipes and the grey skies meet the loch. Jess walks up the aisle with her dad, as Gordy waits. He turns and sees her for the first time and they look at each other and grin. The hold eye contact through out the whole of the ceremony as Fiona, a family friend and vicar marries them. The ceremony opens with prayers and they exchange their vows. They don’t even notice the rain, as a hand fasting ceremony takes place. Their hands are tied with chords, as the blessing of the hands is read. They are blessed and then they watch a friend play their guitar, before walking back up the aisle. Their friends and family gather inside Ross Priory for a drinks reception. The rain dies away and the sun comes out, bringing patches of blue sky, mixed with dramatic dark grey clouds. We head out onto the jetty, for wedding photography portraits against the backdrop of the beautiful Scottish landscape. It’s time for dinner and guests sit down, as Jess and Gordy make their grand entrance. Speeches are emotional and hilarious and then emotional again. We head out for a few more pictures, in the last of the evening light before Jess and Gordy cut their cheese cake and then start the dancing. Jess dances with Gordy, followed by her dad. The Céilidh kicks off and guests take to the dance floor, as night falls over the loch.

Here are the words of Jess and Gordy’s blessing of the hands.

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

These are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.
