A venue visit. Three sites, three beautiful locations: one great day
Matt and I had an exciting day planned with Pam and Paul last weekend, going out to visit the venues for their wedding day. We like to do this with couples so that we can talk about their wedding photography options whilst in the locations. It really helps everyone to visualise the possibilities for the wedding day.
The first visit was to their lovely home in North Berwick. Paul had just returned from lifeboat training, so we sat down for a chat and a cup of tea to let him prepare for the next adventure of his day. I always like a day that starts with a nice cup of tea. Once Paul was ready we headed off to the first location.
Dirleton Kirk is beautiful. It's about 400 years old and will be a wonderful place to get married in. We took our time to wander through the grounds and inside the Kirk, reading up on its history, looking at their lovely church organ and looking through the beautiful stained glass windows. The morning was crisp and wintry and really added to the atmosphere as we stood looking back at the Kirk before leaving. I would have loved to spend hours at the Kirk but we had other lovely places to visit, so we jumped in the car and drove off to Yellowcraigs.
Yellowcraigs is a beach in North Berwick. It has long, yellow sand stretches and the horizon is punctuated by large rocky outcrops making it a wild and romantic place to be. We took some time to walk through the woods that border the beach, before coming out to the grass and dunes for a chance to explore a little of the coastline. The scenery was stunning so it was too good an opportunity to miss photographing Pam and Paul.
As if the day wasn't good enough already, as we stood talking about leaving for the next venue, a bi-plane did a fly by right overhead then the sun broke through the clouds like an epic scene from a film.
This seemed like an appropriate time to leave Yellowcraigs beach, so we walked back along the path to the car and headed back to North Berwick for the last location on the list; the Glen golf club.
It was really nice being outside all day but it was really, really nice once we were inside, where we got to admire the beautiful beach views from the warmth of an open fire.
All in all we had a great day out in North Berwick with the lovely Pam and Paul. They're a fabulous couple and with locations like this it's going to be a beautiful wedding.
