Jan & Gary's Real Wedding

Gary and Jan celebrated an intimate wedding ceremony with just the registrar and wedding coordinator, after quite a stressful morning where the elements almost caused this wedding not to take place.  After their private exchange of wedding rings, Jan and Gary spent the afternoon within the ruins of Armadale Castle along with their photographer, Lynne Kennedy, who captured some beautiful shots of the newlywed couple.

Gary & Jan-The New Mr & Mrs

Jan and Gary met via an internet dating website and after meeting up for dinner just once, decided that they could make a great couple if they tried. Date number two happened to be Jan’s birthday so Gary wined and dined his new lady and presented her with a gorgeous bunch of flowers.  Just a month later Jan went into hospital for surgery, but Gary stayed by her bedside for a full 6 days after her operation and it was then that this couple knew they’d be together forever.

Gary proposed 18 months later by a waterfall in Glencoe where the couple had stopped to admire the stunning views whilst on a weekend break away. Jan was in the process of taking a photograph of the scenery, but when she turned around Gary was down on bended knee with a ring in his hand. Jan was stunned and found it hard to hold back the tears.

The couple spent 10 months planning their private wedding for June 2011, followed by a reception party with friends and family taking place the following September.
