Tania & Dale's Wedding At Melville Castle

Tania & Dale's wedding at Melville Castle was one of those brilliant fun and laid back wedding days. Tania looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress by Mori Lee. Dale also looked the part in his kilt and the boys did a fantastic job on the day looking after Dale and the guests.

The rain was sporadically coming and going so we took our opportunities for a few shots outside when we could. The grounds at Melville Castle are stunning and are perfect for bride and groom photographs.

After dinner, more evening guests arrived and the bride and groom danced the night away. Thank you both so much for making me part of your special day!

Dalhousie Castle Wedding - Cliona & Stuart

Awesome Wedding At Dalhousie Castle

Cliona and Stuart came all the way from Australia for their wedding at Dalhousie Castle. With guests coming in from Ireland as well as all over the UK this was one big international wedding right here in the heart of Scotland.

I arrived for bridal preparations with hair and make-up in full swing while my good friend Colin from Cam-Media Videography was busy filming shots of the shoes and other details. The girls were having a great time being pampered as the ceremony time fast approached.

I found Stuart in the Library Bar adding the finishing touches to his speech as the other guests started to gather in the bar. It was time for the ceremony and time to head off to the church in Rosewell.

Cliona looked stunning in vintage style dress and birdcage fascinator. Her father walked her down the Aisle at St Matthews Church in Rosewell. After the ceremony we all headed back to Dalhousie Castle for drinks and photographs. It's such a beautiful place for any wedding photographer to work in. Spectacular views as well as nice period details inside. Easy to see why this is one of my favourite venues.

After dinner the sun was setting and the light was terrific. I knew we had to get out there and Colin had found a gap in the fence to the cornfield next to the castle. What a way to finish the perfect wedding day. Fantastic couple at sunset in a Scottish Castle. Doesn't get any better!





Murthly Castle Wedding Photography - Jennifer & James

This was a very special wedding. Jennifer & James had arranged the perfect wedding at probably the best venue I have ever shot at. Murthly castle is just out of this world! The drive to the castle once you turn in from the main road must be around a half a mile at least but then you turn the corner to see this stunning house set in a beautiful walled garden. That's not all though. Beyond the house itself is a pine-tree lined drive to Murthly's own private church. Everywhere you looked there was a photograph just begging to be taken.

The girls were getting ready in the room when James and his family were arriving. Getting the button holes pinned to the lapels properly is never an easy task but thankfully Mum was a dab hand and had the boys all kitted out in no time at all. The guests arrived and made their way down the drive leading to the church to meet James and have a peek inside the beautifully decorated church interior. The Jennifer's brother Daniel arrived and was very keen to show the piper his skills and really looked the part with his very own Glengarry.

Peter knocked on Jennifer's door to escort her to the church and give her away to James. It was an emotional when Peter saw his beautiful daughter in her wedding dress and I don't think there was a dry eye in that room for those few seconds. Yours truly included.

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed drinks and canopies back at the castle then on the lawns and then nipped back to the castle then back out the lawns.... Ok, let me explain. It was like someone had a rain button and was pressing it every time we set foot outside. It didn't matter of course as with such a gorgeous venue we could photograph the families in the drawing room. Luckily, after the meal the rain was gone and it turned into a beautiful evening so we grabbed a few duplicate shots of the family photos we did inside then went for a wander around the stunning gardens with Jennifer and James.

A very special day indeed on so many levels. Jennifer & James... I can't thank you enough for inviting me to your wedding. It was very emotional and we know why but it is a day I'll never forget and am so glad I was a part of. Looking forward to seeing you and your family soon after the new year for a catch up.

All the very best

Derek
