A Captivating Smile – Real Wedding Feature – Michelle and David

I can’t think of any better way of starting afresh than beginning with a Wedding that I  was personally involved in.

The Wedding of Michelle and David McKenna took place in late May, and was captured in spectacular style by photographer Mark Timm at Glenbervie House Hotel.

Mark is based in Glasgow, but he covers the whole of Scotland and the U.K.

He says “My passion for wedding photography is born of the desire to give ordinary people access to the kind of high quality, creative and spectacular photography that
they may never have thought they could afford for themselves. I treat each wedding as a chance to create something totally unique and I’ll use any method
at my disposal to give you something you won’t get from any other wedding photographer.”

Mark says of the couples Big Day “I remember that the day went rather smoothly all round. The guests were all
really friendly, and the bride and groom were really chilled out (not to mention very photogenic!)”

 “I think really they enjoyed the photoshoot we had around the grounds of Glenbervie after the ceremony.  A time to breathe and take in the events of the day.”

Personally, I met Michelle in September 2009 at my very first Wedding fair and I always remembered her as an engaging and friendly lass with a megawatt smile, so I was delighted a few months later when she contacted me to enquire about On the Day Co -Ordination.

Michelle had been following my exploits through my Facebook Business page, and felt that On the Day service was something that would really let her relax on her Big Day so it was a real pleasure to be working with her, to ensure her, and fiance David’s Wedding ran smoothly.

Tell us about the Engagement

Michelle says “We got engaged on a Transatlantic Cruise in May 2009. The day started with a champagne breakfast, followed by a wonderful day of pampering and very romantically ending with a beautiful proposal under the twinkling stars.

Tell us about your Wedding Day

“We got married on the 27th of May 2011, a beautiful late Spring Day.”

“Our Ceremony and Reception took place at Glenbervie House Hotel.”

“Glenbervie is a stunning Victorian Manor House, approached by a sweeping drive and surrounded by acres of picturesque parkland giving outstanding panoramic views, and we really liked the exclusivity that it provided.”

“We didn’t really have a theme as such but brought in accents of midnight blue and butterflies as special touches . We just really wanted a relaxed, laid back day, and for everyone to just have a really great time.”

Why did you use an On The Day Co-ordinator ?

 “I used the on the day co-ordination day because I was so busy in the run up to the wedding I really wanted someone to ensure all the suppliers would be there on the day! I wanted the day to be as stress free as possible and felt the additional support provided by Mrs P & P would do that.”

“I will always be glad I chose to have on the day co-ordination. I was free to enjoy the day without having to deal with any wee hiccups. I remember after the service getting the photos taken when I was desperate for a canapé, I mentioned this to Alison and the next thing there she was running across to use with a selection of them!”

And so to a short recollection of the day…………


Michelle and her maids started their day by getting their hair coiffured by Fusion, and then made up by Make up artist and friend Rosheen McGowan, before stepping into her stunning gown.

They then made the 30 minute car journey to Glenbervie.

I had spent the morning at Glenbervie setting up the Venue just the way the couple envisioned.


A beautiful and emotional Ceremony ensued, and Bridesmaid Jacqueline sang during the signing of the Register, accompanied by talented pianist Chris Connelly.

Thus followed a relaxed Drinks Reception as the Official photographs were taken, followed by the Wedding Breakfast and some both amusing and emotional speeches.

After the arrival of evening guests from Glasgow and beyond, the Evening Reception kicked off in spectacular style by First Class Music, a fantastic Scottish band with one of the band members being a former colleague of Michelles.

And the music played  long into the night…


I really enjoyed being part of Michelle and Davids Big Day, and to help them achieve the relaxed day that they wanted.

Whilst not playing a large part in the design of the day, it was really nice to be able to bring together the look, and midnight blue has to be one of my favourite colours to work with. Its sleek, glamourous and very very statement.

Thank you for letting me share your day.
