We got together on a crisp November morning. The leaves were still frosted from the cold night before, the snow-capped mountains reminding us that winter was coming. Seasons change quickly in the Scottish Highlands.
We met Ana & Rowan to take a walk through some of their favourite places. Glencoe has become home for these beautiful souls in the past year, perhaps unexpectedly. They told us that’s what happens when you follow your heart. Their love for nature and each other is all they need.
We spoke of finding the light...the spaces, movements and shifting moments that allow it to shine through. As T.S. Eliot wrote, “So the darkness shall be light, and the stillness dancing.” That’s when beauty emerges.
And so we watched as these two wandered, gazed and danced their way through forest and glen, giving us glimpses into the spaces that keep holding them together.
Lucy & Pete
WEDDING // THE HERMITAGE, PERTHSHIRE
It’s not hard to fall in love with Autumn - the drawing-in of the evenings, its russet colors and ripened hedgerows inviting you to gather in, fill your glass, and cosy up together. Which is exactly why Lucy & Pete decided to get married during, what will be no surprise, our favourite season of the year.
These two are so natural, living nearby in their cottage with their two spaniels, hens and ducks, growing their own vegetables, picking chanterelles in the wood. They embrace the chaos that nature sometimes brings, knowing that order is renewed if you’re patient enough to wait.
Their journey together speaks of the same rhythms which is why their day was so perfectly framed by the beauty of their surroundings - the poetry of old trees that have been there for years, letting go of their leaves once more in preparation for the newness of seasons ahead.
Corinne & Matt
WEDDING // LAKE DISTRICT, ENGLAND
We like journeys that bring us back to our beginnings, perhaps transformed, a little different, more whole. So it was with Corinne & Matt, returning from their lives overseas to Matt's home village in the iconic Lakes for their wedding day.
Our morning began early with a swim off the pier, a favourite pastime of Matt's childhood. Then back to the cottages where he grew up and he & Corinne got ready to say “I do." The day was simple - join together at one end of the village then walk to the other to celebrate.
These two embody each other...no beginning or end. As expressed through the poetry of Norman MacCaig during their ceremony, “Knowing the way a circle would describe its roundness, we touch two selves and feel, complete and gentle.”
