Orroland Lodge Wedding | Avril & David - Sail Away With Me
Orroland lodge wedding | Hemera Visuals
Avril and David first met when they lived across from each other in Dumfries. From there on in there relationship has flourished and this year decided it was finally time to tie the knot.
They opted for a very small an intimate wedding and chose a venue that was perfectly suited to their requirements Orroland Lodge. Located a few miles between Auchencairn and Kirkcudbright Dumfries and Galloway its location right on top of the sea looking out over the Solway Firth, as well its very own private beach and stunning garden including an amazing art installation garden.
The day kicked off early with a midday ceremony and two minutes before it was due to start the heavens opened. But with some great luck and a lovely registrar the wedding was soon back outside with a clifftop view seldom seen anywhere else. After what was a very moving ceremony we had no longer got back inside and the rain came again. And that would be the order of the day sunshine and very heavy showers but that didn’t put a damper on anyone’s day.
With it being a very family oriented wedding Avril and David created lots of fun games for everyone to enjoy including a Mr and Mrs toss the sack, mini golf and skittles which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Avril bought a lot of the items herself including all the amazing little decorations that were placed throughout the venue!
My biggest surprise of the day was to find out David came from a sailing background and wanted to take Avril for a little boating trip on the estates very own boating pond. With a roman style villa and tower looking own in the background it made the perfect location for their portraits creating such a natural feel to them! This Orroland Lodge wedding was something incredibly special, and one I will remember for a long time to come!
The day was made extra special thanks to all these wonderful Vendors & People!
Cameron captured our wedding day in an effortless natural style, blending emotion, intimacy and authenticity to create images and memories that will last us a lifetime. His support, reassurance and confidence allowed us to relax on the day and from the first time we met him we knew he would contribute in a professional yet personal way. Cameron’s wedding photos are the gift that keep on giving and I cannot thank him enough for giving us everlasting memories of an amazing day that you can’t quite absorb at the time. - Claire & Alan.
We knew after a quick coffee, he was the one to capture our wedding day. He listened to what we did/didn’t want, gave us a good idea as to what to expect on the day and kept in touch right through the planning process. On the day, he more than our photographer, he was helping organising us all, keeping our daughter entertained to name a few. Cameron was the photographer at my cousins wedding prior to ours so the whole family knew him and really feel he made such an effort to get to know us all. - Kate & Chris.
Anyone getting married or needing professional photos should give Cameron a call!! This guy is a proper gentleman who was willing to listen to what we were looking for and capture all the magical moments of our wedding. He came highly recommended to us and we would never hesitate in recommending him to anyone. Vicki & Ally.
It was so great to have Cameron capturing our wedding. We were initially unsure about having a wedding photographer as we were worried about taking time away from our guest etc. but after speaking to Cameron he reassured us it wouldn't be intrusive on the day and he was absolutely right! He's also a lovely guy. Rebecca & Alan.
Received our wedding pictures today from Cammy, I was going to write this review before I got my pictures because I already knew they would be amazing. He is so much more than a photographer, I can’t recommend him enough! On our day he helped so much getting everyone organised and helped with so many little things that we never even thought blown! He was extremely organised and kept us calm and relaxed the whole day. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful, I can’t stop looking at them! From the day we initially met him to book right through until dropping our pictures off he couldn’t do enough for us, had so many personal touches and was just so friendly and helpful! If I could only recommend one supplier from our whole day it would 100% be Cammy!! Look no further than Hemera Visuals!
We chose Cameron to photograph our wedding back in April this year and it was the best decision we made, Cameron made us feel so comfortable through out the whole day and was great with our son also! Nothing was a bother to him and we had great laughs along the way! Have already recommend to a few of our friends soon to be married too! Thank you again Cameron! We loved every photo!! Charlotte & Callum.
