Our photography aims to show what a wedding is about the celebration of two people their family and friends enjoying a day where they can relax and be themselves! We look not to intrude but to catch emotions and character, this is what makes photographing people more special and more interesting to us.

Alastair and Rose did the most incredible job of photographing our wedding. From the start they were both very friendly and evidently had a vast wealth of experience in wedding photography. They have covered many venues, including the one we were married at, and so could give us lots of examples and ideas for the best shots, both inside and outside the venue. They were very meticulous at making a note of the group shots and other specific photos we wanted and made sure these were taken. On the wedding day itself they were very attentive and heroically battled through the rain to give us some beautiful photographs that have become our favourite. Throughout the day they worked quickly and non-intrusively, allowing us to spend lots of time with our guests and without making the photographs feel like an interruption at all. The photographs were stunning, and (particularly as someone who doesn’t like having their photograph taken!) we could not have been more delighted. We had a great mixture of natural ‘in the moment’ pictures and others that are beautifully stylish. The final album was finished to a very high standard and is something that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We’ve had some amazing compliments from family and friends who have seen our wedding photographs.
Put simply, Alastair and Rose are both professional and personable, producing beautiful photographs and creating a very high-quality end product. We could not recommend them highly enough.

We could not recommend Alastair & Rose enough! From the second I seen photos from a friends wedding they had done I knew they were the photographers for us, and after meeting them it just cemented this. They are 2 genuinely nice people who are simply fantastic at what they do. We can’t thank you both enough, from Rose getting me into my dress and helping things run smoothly in the morning to Alastair perfectly capturing our day. Together with all the work put in to the editing and our stunning album. Each meeting with you both was a pleasure and now we have our memories stored in such a wonderful way thanks to you both. Thank You!

5+++* recommendation! Alastair and Rose are fantastic photographers in every way, first and foremost in the beautiful shots of our wedding (and others we’ve seen!). They’re also very easy going, thoughtful and kind people who go above and beyond – just the sort of people you want around you when you’re feeling a bit stressed on the morning, or something needs sorting out. At the end of the day, photos are all you have left. We have so many beautiful memories captured and created by Rose and Alastair. Don’t hesitate to book them!

After choosing Alistair and Rose to photograph our wedding in September 2018 we were not disappointed with the service. A fantastic team who helped us through every step running up to the wedding and of course on the big day. The quality and style of the pictures were simply perfect and we couldn’t have asked for more. Excellent from start to finish

Exactly what we were looking for: great at getting people organised when we needed them to, and gave everyone plenty of space the rest of the time. Photos and album design are excellent, and their cat is adorable! They’re particularly good at catching photos when people are relaxed and happy, rather than forcing people to pose at awkward moments.

We were recommended Alistair and Rose through a friend and they lived up to their expectation.

Both were very friendly and welcomed us into their home to pre-plan everything. The planning beforehand was immense and both tailored our schedule to fit in photographs of all the best scenery which we were grateful for.

Rose was very helpful with my dress and fitted in well with the bridal party.

We are delighted with the photographs of everyone.

Thanks again.

I would highly recommend Alastair Burn Murdoch photography! Both Alasdair and Rose made us feel so calm and relaxed on our wedding day. From the moment we met them we knew they would fit in with our day perfectly. We wanted more natural photos rather than “posed” ones which Alastair and Rose certainly delivered. We absolutely love our wedding photos and they captured our day perfectly. Alastair has the ability to snap beautiful photos without you even realising they are being taken. Many thanks to both Alastair and Rose, we can’t recommend you highly enough.

We LOVE our photos. Alistair captured the fun of the day from beginning to end and has created an amazing record of our memories. Alistair and Rose are a great team and made us feel confident and comfortable throughout the whole process: from pre-wedding planning to developing our absolutely beautiful album. The style and quality of the photography is superb. We can’t recommend them highly enough.

Alistair and Rose are quite a pair,
whose amazing photos made people stare,
and given memories for us to share
with family and friends.

She fixed the veil,
he shot the scene,
everyone was kept serene
from dawn till dusk that December day.

A storybook album to remember the day,
with beautiful pictures for when we’re old and grey,
to cherish forever.

Thank you both for being so amazing.

We are absolutely delighted with our wedding photographs. Alastair and Rose were professional from start to finish and made us feel at ease. Our photos are so natural and captured the story of the day from beginning to end. Lots of our guests noted that they didn’t even notice them, which is exactly how it should be. We can’t thank them enough for helping with the extra bits too, fixing hair, flowers, holding the drinks etc, making the day run smoothly. Highly recommended!

Rose and Alastair made our day very relaxed. From the start Rose made everyone feel very comfortable whilst Alastair got the photos that makes looking back at the day so great.

Consultation before the wedding was well organised and at no point were we worried that the photos would not be perfect.
On the day the photos captured all the special moments we were hoping. Rose particularly seemed to have all the bases covered and as a result our photos are perfect.

Could not recommend them more!

Alistair and Rose were excellent both before and during our wedding day. They spent time to understand the type of photographs that we wanted before the wedding, which made the day run smoothly. The quality and look of the photographs that we received after our wedding day was excellent and they remind us of such a great day overtime that we look back at them. Alistair and Rose were fantastic and we cannot recommended them enough!

Stunning photos! All of our friends and family have loved the album. “Spectacular”, “beautiful” and “the best I’ve ever seen” are words that we’ve regularly heard about it!
Alistair and Rose were fantastic on the day, they went above and beyond to get the perfect shots and give us exactly the look we were after.
Their relaxed and helpful attitude on the day and the selection process at their gorgeous house meant we felt that we’d booked photographers but made good friends!

Cannot recommend Alastair Burn-Murdoch highly enough.nnAs 2 camera shy people we were unsure about what to do as far as wedding photos go. We wanted natural, unposed photos. Alastair and Rose are so friendly, happy and relaxed, which really put us at ease, both before our wedding and on the day. We are both absolutely over the moon with our photographs, they are amazing. They have managed to capture all the important moments so well and even caught special bits we missed! Delighted with our storybook album.

Alastair and Rose make an excellent photography team and we were incredibly impressed by the level of service we received before, after and on the wedding day itself. They are incredibly professional and at the same time very personal and make you sure you are completely comfortable with everything! We are very pleased with the photos from the wedding and they come highly recommended by us for anyone looking for photographers for their special day!

My husband and I could not be happier with the quality and variety of the photographs taken of our special day. From start to finish, Rose & Alastair put us at ease and took the time to get to know the kind of photography we were really interested in, which allowed them to carefully plan and arrange all of the brilliant group shots on the day itself. As a team, they are true professionals and we would have no hesitation in recommending this fabulous duo for any wedding. We have looked back at our beautiful photo album many times over the last few months, and we are delighted that Rose & Alastair have created a collection of such stunning snaps for us that we will cherish forever.

We are incredibly happy with our wedding photos from ABM Photography. They captured the feel of the day perfectly and we will enjoy looking at them for years to come! Alastair and Rose were extremely professional and listened to our ideas and requirements prior to the wedding. The relaxed attitude and style of Alastair’s photos were exactly what we were aiming for. I felt very comfortable whilst all the shots were taken throughout the day, and I think that contributed to the quality and natural look of the photos. It was a pleasure meeting Alastair and Rose and will definitely be recommending them to friends in the future!

Alastair and Rose were excellent. They went above and beyond just being professional photographers for our day, and were an invaluable help from everything such as helping the bride to get ready, sorting out our button holes and a whole lot of other details which really made the day run so smoothly. They were a pleasure to have at our wedding and we would recommend them to anyone. Alastair’s attitude was really relaxed, and he made us feel very comfortable, and we now have a beautiful set of photos to remember the day.
