Gail & Alistair’s Secret Elopement Wedding in Helensburgh

As a Helensburgh Wedding Photographer Elopements are quite popular, especially given my close proximity to Loch Lomond.  This wedding was little more special for me as a photographer as I’ve known Gail for several years.

Being asked to photograph a wedding for someone you know is always an honour, but even more so when you are the only person (with the exception of the registrar) who knows about the couple’s wedding plans!  I was so delighted to be the one capturing Gail and Alistair’s wedding photographs to enable them to share the moments from their Wedding day with their family and friends.

The lovely meaningful ceremony was conducted by Elaine, one of the Helensburgh Registrars.  As a wedding photographer it was a little more challenging than usual as I was more restricted as to where I could stand to ensure I maintained the distance from Elaine and the witnesses.

As is quite often the case for Helensburgh…and well the West coast of Scotland in general, the weather forecast for the day was shall we say “unpredictable” and it really could have gone either way.  Lucky for us the showers came and went and after the wedding ceremony we captured some beautiful couple photographs outside the Helensburgh Civic Centre, incorporating the lovely mix of the old architecture of the old Clyde Street School and the more recent part of the building.

We then hopped in our cars and drove just 5 minutes along the road to Rhu for more photographs, making use of the mature trees and the beautiful autumn colours.
