My First wedding

I captured my very first wedding at the age of 18, in 2008, in Gretna Green in Scotland. You know, that place that’s constantly talked about in old movies? Where the couple runs away. Literally the original elopement location of the world.

Gretna green was the elopement capital as you didn’t have to post your bans in order to get married. You could simply arrive, and then get married asap.

I had been a photography student at South Downs College, as it was known as at the time. And I had been learning film photography. This gave me a excellent grasp as we learned anything from developing, to printing, both film and prints themselves.
