As a wedding photographer in Aberdeen I get to visit some superb venues and see some unusual styling. Step inside this beautiful ‘Beauty and the Beast’ themed wedding in Aberdeen’s Mal Maison Hotel!

Ashley and Jack show how to rock a city centre wedding with style. This uber-cute couple met at a party – well Jack met Ashley and remembers  her sparkly face. It seems however that Jack didn’t quite have the same effect on Ashley at first as she couldn’t recall him! The passage of time eventually brought them together however and they chose Mal Maison Aberdeen for their wedding. City Centre weddings offer an air of sophistication and this day was bang on the money there.

I arrived to see Ashley being made up by Alana McRae make up artist who is fantastic at what she does – every bride I’ve seen looks stunning! Ashley had already had her hair done by Caroline at Distinction Hair Design and was looking fabulous. Her dress was the ‘Barcelona’ design from Perfect Bridal in Aberdeen. It was exquisitely simple.

Jack was nervously waiting and Ashley made an entrance to remember! Her beautiful candle holders in the aisle came a cropper when she caught her foot on them. However she and Jack saw the funny side and it relaxed everyone for the service. The expressions are great and I think reflects Jack and Ashley’s fun side as a couple. Fairytale Events provided the gorgeous starry night backdrop to the room  which created a lovely Disney atmosphere just as Ashley imagined.

Registrar Tom conducted a lovely ceremony full of laughs and love – and nothing else got knocked over ; )

Outside in the April sun guests were able to have a drink and watch some family photos. My style is very relaxed and informal and I think this shows in the images we get from groups.

I spent some time around the hotel with Ashley and Jack looking at ways to use the building originally. You don’t need mountains in the background to make stunning images. Some creativity and thought can produce unique angles and we had fun around the hotel and grounds during their couple shoot. An Aberdeeen wedding can come to life in photos with the silver granite and it sure did here.

I’ll leave you with a few final photos of their celebrations and details including the Disney table stationary by RLA Weddings and gorgeous cake by Icing Design. Oh and much cuteness from Page Boy Max and Flower Girl Eilidh!  Congratulations again Mr & Mrs Furze!
