Jennifer and John at Lodge on the Loch, Aboyne
Saturday 28th August was my first wedding at Lodge on the Loch, Aboyne. I had looked at the venue on the website and was looking forward to working at this beautiful setting. I was not disappointed when I arrived and saw the beautiful views from the decking outside the bar and restaurant. The service was going to take place outside but unfortunately just at the time of the service, the rain came on and everyone had to move inside for the service. Fortunately the rain went off and after the service and I got all the photographs taken outside.

It was not easy in the very bright sunshine and the strong backlighting but was a good test for my new flashgun (see post) and I managed to retain the detail in the sky and water while still lighting the bridal party
For some of the shots of the Bride and Groom, I tried to keep the drama of the sky by exposing for the background and using enough flash to light the couple.
