It’s hard to put into words just how special this wedding is/was to us. A couple with one of those connections that brings a grin to your face whenever you think about it, visually stunning, perfect weather, cracking locations, wonderful people and (somewhat selfishly) it was also the start of a beautiful friendship…
We’d admired Claire’s amazing work as a photographer for a while, so when she got in touch about the possibility of us capturing her wedding we felt flattered, excited and nervous in equal measure! However, by the time we arrived in the quaint seaside village of St Monans in the East Neuk of Fife on the morning of the wedding, all nerves were put to rest. The morning was full of anticipation and quiet little moments, with a bevvy of bridesmaids and a gaggle of groomsmen on-hand to keep things entertaining!
Their ceremony at Holy Trinity Church in St Andrews was nothing short of joyous. A celebration of love, faith and song sung with such gusto that it was impossible not to join in! Straight after the ceremony we whisked the guys away in our car and headed for the sea! Catching some ‘just married’ moments with Claire and Josh was a total pleasure and we could’ve stayed there all day…
We eventually made our way to The Cow Shed, Crail – a stunner of a venue kitted out with so many details and little touches by our mega-creative couple and their team of helpers. The day went on with some brilliant speeches in the courtyard, before the wedding feast set everyone up perfectly for some crazy dancing. There were flailing limbs and beaming smiles everywhere we looked.
By the time they made their dramatic sparkler exit, we realised we had been so so lucky to have been a small part of this wonderful celebration. Since that day, Claire and Josh have become dear friends of ours; which makes looking back on their incredible wedding (exactly one year later) even more special.
C + J, happy first anniversary. We love you guys and thanks for letting us capture the best day ever!
