Moyra & Carl's wedding in Dunbar

21st December 2014
Ladies & Gentlemen, all the way from NSW in Australia, I give you Moyra & Carl !
(Big fanfare & applause :) )

Both Moyra & Carl originate from the UK, with Moyra having family in Dunbar - hence the connection, and the wedding taking place here.
The ceremony was in Dunbar Town House, straight across the road from our shop. Handy.

Still... winding back a bit, earlier in the morning, I met up with Moyra & the Bridal Brigade and spent 2 hours of building up the excitement, getting ready and preparing last minute plans to the day.
Winter weddings take that extra bit planning, as with very little daylight hours, possible bad weather, you have to be prepared to shift every part of the photography back & forth and have plans B, C & D ready to jump into action.

Everything almost went along with plan A though, and after Moyra was all dressed up, and we grabbed a few bridal shots, I zipped off to The Rocks to meet up with the guys, before we all checked in at the ceremony venue, Dunbar's very historic Town House chambers.
The registrar ceremony was very nice, still fun, then we zipped around 3 very quick locations outside, before getting the happy couple warmed up - back at The Rocks hotel & restaurant where the reception was.
Been there a few times this year - and the staff always put on a good show for weddings.

Fair enough, we had to make do with corridor spaces for the small group shots we'd planned, but we made do , and we made it work.

Pretty soon David Currie had everyone on their feet for the dancing and this mixed crowd of Brits, ex-pats & Ozzies all had a ball.
An extra bit of fun was the fact that Carl's mum name is actually Sheila... so you can imagine the shouts everytime one of the Australian guys went passed her "Alright there Sheila !?" (that doesn't really work without a sound bite, but you get the idea).

A great day was had by all... and as far as I know , festivities are still ongoing...

Here's to the newly weds, and here's a sample of their photos.
The full portfolio is in our Gallery Section. But you'll need the password from Moyra & Carl to get in.
