Initially I wasn’t going to have a videographer at our wedding….I thought we could do without and I am genuinely so grateful that I changed my mind as I was completely wrong!! I was concerned that a camera poking at my face all day would stress me (I am not great at getting my photo taken and being on camera). However, Rob at Curious Robin films made the experience so calm and unobtrusive, I hardly realised I was being filmed which made the experience all so easy and comfortable.

Our wedding video still has me in tears almost 4 years later, every single time I watch it. After all the planning and organising we went through to get it right, Rob really captured the essence of our day in a way that no photograph could. With the perfect choice of music and even the details like using the old vintage camera. Every time I watch it I feel like I’m transported back to that day and experiencing it all over again and for that exact reason, I just can’t recommend Curious Robin Films highly enough.

Scottish Borders Wedding

Posted by on Oct 11, 2017 in Weddings | No Comments

Last month we were fortunate to film our first Scottish Borders Wedding, at the beautifully situated Shieldhill Castle near Biggar. Although I have second shot for others at weddings down near Melrose, it was a joy to be able to exercise my own creative style in the lush surroundings. It was a mixed bag weather wise, with torrential rain completely ruling out any nice footage of sun drenched drinks receptions on the lawn. But then we were blessed with a tremendous golden hour sunset which was a godsend to shoot the couple in.

The sky even cleared up to show a clear, starry night, but any notion of doing a astro-lapse were quickly killed off by the over eager halogen security lights.

My interest in Scottish Borders weddings is familial. My paternal ancestors were mostly labourers and tenant farmers down in Dumfriesshire and I share the pleasure of a borders identity which straddles the northernmost counties of England and southernmost of Scotland. The join between two nations cemented by a common interest; cattle rustling.

But the marches are a more docile place these days and many wonderful weddings are held across the beautiful Scottish Borders region, and beyond to the south. If you would like us to document your Scottish Borders wedding in our own unique style, do get in touch today
