One year ago today Julie and I were lucky enough to travel out to the Shetland Islands to shoot Nicole and Stewart’s wedding. Having shot Stuart’s sister Lesley and her husband Paul’s wedding in Glasgow http://nickporterphotography.com/2016/08/paul-lesleys-glasgow-wedding/ the year before I was really looking forward to seeing everyone again and also travelling up to the shetlands for the first time. We flew from Heathrow up to Glasgow and then on to Sumburgh, unfortunately every photographers nightmare happened when British Airways decided not to pack our bags on the Glasgow flight so we arrived in Shetland without any change of clothes. Fortunately I’d packed most of my camera gear in our hand luggage having lost bags before.
A quick shop around Lerwick and we were good to go, we stayed at the Drumquin Guesthouse in Brae http://www.drumquinguesthouse.co.uk which was excellent and right next to the venue at Brae hall. The traditional wedding was over 3 days and was amazing. I’ve never seen such a sense on community and everyone was so friendly, we even had a random invasion of vikings on one of the evenings! Nicole was one of my Air Traffic Control students so some of the guests were also Air traffickers who I’d taught previously and it was great to catch up with them as well as everyone from the Glasgow wedding.
Happy Anniversary Nicole and Stew x
