A few weeks back I spent an amazing day in the company of the very laid back and lovely, Jillian and Chris Hill. Well at the start of the day Jillan was a Rice and a Hill to be of course. Yes I had the honour and pleasure of photographing their wedding at the spectacular New Lanark Mill hotel (who looked after us all very well) Weather was amazing, if anything a little to good as it was sweltering but lovely to see some nice sunshine and blue sky.
I did say laid back, the day did contain a unique feature, something I have never seen before despite all the weddings I have photographed over the years - the Bride reached the alter ahead of the groom!! To be fair I think this was the Ministers fault as he placed Chris and his best man in a side room awaiting the arrival of Jillian. The idea was as sound as a pound but unfortunately he totally forgot to go and get Chris!! A duty that landed at my feet.
Chris handled emerging well in front of 100 odd guests and the proceedings went fantastically smoothly thereafter. Fantastic speeches from all followed by an amazing night meant a very memorable and lovely day - I was very glad to be part it. I also really enjoyed catching up with Jillian's family and also Ashley's family(one of the Bridesmaids who I photographed marrying Jillian's brother a few years back) I certainly felt part of their families. I have the best job ever.
My very best wishes to Jillian and Chris as they embark on their new life together as man and wife, here's a wee glimpse of their day - enjoy x
