Being a Glasgow wedding photographer is hard enough, but when your niece and her fiance ask you to be their photographer for their big day at Dalziel Park Hotel & Golf Club, Motherwell then the wedding becomes a whole new experience. Initially I was a little nervous it has to be said. Shooting for family always seems harder but I’m so glad I was asked to be their wedding photographer.
This was my first wedding of 2014, and on February 7th both Alica and Melv tied the knot. They are both beautiful people (inside and out) and it was an honour to have been asked to record their big day.
The Dalziel Park wedding venue has undergone a recent major refurbishment and the venue is now beautiful inside and with the golf course adjacent it makes a perfect place to have your wedding. I’ve photographed a number of Dalziel Park weddings now and each time is different.
Alica and Melv were married in St Ignatius – A beautiful church located in the centre of Wishaw. Their wedding weather turned out to be almost perfect! It had rained the whole week and was grey and overcast too all the way up to the Friday they got married, but on that morning the sun came out and stayed out the whole day! And the next day was back to rain! They caught just the right day. February weddings can be a little hit and miss with the weather but it’s good to know that a Dalziel Park wedding can accommodate a group for any occasion in any weather. The whole day went perfectly. As a guest too I was privileged to have a sit down wedding breakfast and the Dalziel Park wedding meal was fantastic. Really among the best anywhere! After the meal I shot their first few dances and I was then given the rest of the night off (although I continued to shoot). Alica and Melv now live in Hemel Hempstead in London and I know they miss their friends and family when they are away but they do make regular visits back home. We all love them very much and it was amazing to spend the day with them and both their families. Thanks guys fr making the day one of the happiest and most enjoyable weddings I’ve been to. x Here’s a small gallery of the images from their day.
