A grand country house near Glasgow city centre, Pollok House is Scotland’s answer to Downton Abbey and gives a real taste of upstairs/downstairs life in the 1930s. Set in the scenic surroundings of Pollok Country Park, which is also home to the Burrell Collection.
It made a nice change shooting a wedding through in the West. I have only shot a few wedding in Glasgow and have enjoyed visiting some new and unique wedding venues. Pollok House and Pollok Country Park were definitely some of the most picturesque surroundings I have photographed at for a wedding in 2014.
Being a November wedding we were a little concerned about the weather for the day. Forecasts had been mixed and there was a high probability of rain in the afternoon. As it turned out we were extremely lucky on the day! We wrapped up most of the group shots and shots of Jenny & Martin around the grounds at around 4pm, just as the heavens opened!
There were big laughs at the speeches, followed by a lively ceilidh which it seemed every single guest took part in! All in all the entire day went without a hitch, we were very lucky with the weather but everything came out as we planned... Well, apart from getting an image of Jenny & Martin with the parks Highland cows. They really didn't want to get their photo taken!
It was a great crowd at the wedding and Oscar and I really enjoyed our part in Jenny & Martin's big day.
