Images were captured by Tom Cairns Photography.
Tom is a Wedding and Portrait Photographer based in Kilmarnock, Scotland.
Photography has been a passion for Tom as long as he can remember. He has always found that being able to capture moments in time and to look back at them over the years is something really special.
Life is always on the move. People change, memories blossom and fade. His approach to photography is a refreshingly simple one: his style is honest and fun, celebrating life, love and family.
He takes time to get to know his clients and to understand what makes them tick so that he can reflect his clients individuality in the images he takes.
To strengthen the feeling of intimacy in his photography he prefer’s to work on-location with natural light, which compliments his belief of taking honest, simple, beautiful images that capture the beauty and connection a family enjoys.
He’s constantly watching and waiting to capture fresh and original images and presenting them to clients with a modern contemporary feel.
The key thing is for Tom is then to turn those ordinary moments into extraordinary images and present them as a work of art, be it on a wall or in a beautiful book.
The end results are family heirlooms that celebrate moments in time, which will forever warm your heart.
I hand over to the lovely Bride Michelle…
How did you meet?
“We met in 2004 when Michael was interviewing me for a job.”
“He was the General Manager at Tiger Tiger and I was being interviewed for the event manager position.”
“We did have a mutual friend and I had been introduced to him very briefly a few years before, but this was our first proper introduction.”
“Love blossomed and we had our first child Samuel in 2005 and our second Max in 2008 at the same time as we opened or first restaurant SoHo on Miller St.”
“In 2011 we opened our second venue Little SoHo in Jordanhill.”
“Before owning our own business we worked together closely in TigerTiger then 29 Glasgow.”
When did you get engaged?
“We didn’t get engaged until 2014 after 10 years, 2 children and 2 restaurants together but it was pretty romantic as we got engaged on a champagne boat trip around Loch Lomond while staying at Cameron House.”
Tell us about your wedding planning journey
“Having worked as a Wedding and Event planner and Manager for 14 years splanning our own wedding came very naturally.”
“Having seen so many different styles and themes of weddings over the years I had a good idea of what we would like for our wedding day.”
“Also having worked with lots of different suppliers I knew what suppliers would be best for our special day.”
When did you get married?
“Our Wedding Day was on 27th September 2014.”
What was the best bit of your day?
“There were so many fun parts to our day but we had our little boys Samuel and Max as our best men – so having them on the altar with us playing an important part of our ceremony was very special.”
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
“I think finding the right venue is key.”
“We wanted to get married within a year of getting engaged so thought we would have to settle with something not quite right.”
“In the end we booked the venue we wanted – the Ball room in Grand Central is the most amazing setting and the team there were amazing.”
Thank you to Tom for sharing his incredible imagery from this chic Glasgow Wedding.
From the breathtaking Augusta Jones gown to the beautiful floristry to the majesticness of the Grand Centrals amazing ballroom, Michael and Michelles Big Day is just so pretty.
Also love the pinks and creams that flow through the styling against the monochrome of the Grooms suit and the bridesmaids giving a seamless elegant look.
