I always love returning to Balbirnie House as it is one of those wedding venues that has everything. Beautiful building, always welcoming staff and a stunning interior which includes that gorgeous staircase. Laura & Henry tied the knot in The Orangery at Balbirnie with drinks reception in the main bar. We couldn't have gotten the weather any better for this time of year with only a few spots of rain and the sun even made an apperance.
I met Laura in her room with all the girls as the hair and make-up was all going on. Always a great time to meet everyone and grab a few candid shots before heading downstairs to meet the boys. Henry was in the bar with all the groomsmen and other guests enjoyong a drink while the wedding hour fast approached.
The Orangery was beautifully prepared for Laura to walk down the aisle with her father. The ceremony was expertly conducted by Graham Duff from The Humanist Fellowship Of Scotland culminating in the traditional hand fastening. This is where the phrase "Tying The Knot" comes from.
After the ceremony all the guests headed outside for the big group photograph but then as it was a little chilly, we did the group shots in small bursts to help keep everyone nice and cozy indoors as well as making sure everyone could relax and enjoy the day instead of standing around for photos. It was a great atmospher and a fantastic day.
Huge thanks to Laura & Henry for making me part of their special day at The Balbirnie House Hotel.
