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!

Glencorse House Wedding - Caroline & Owen

Caroline & Owen's Glencorse House wedding in the heart of Midlothian was a fantastic day. Bridal preparations were taking place at Caroline's mum's place in Edinburgh. It's a great time for bride and bridesmaid to chill and be pampered before the ceremony.

I arrived at Glencorse Kirk nice and early and was blown away! It's the first time I have shot a wedding at Glencorse and to have the consecrated kirk available for pretty much any kind of service you like is fantastic. Then you add in the beautiful stately home grounds and huge marquee and you have one amazing wedding venue.

The guests started to arrive then the boys made their entrance via golf buggy! It started to rain after a few minutes so everyone headed inside to await Caroline's arrival. The ceremony was conducted by Humanist celebrant Ken McMillan.

After the ceremony guests gathered by the main house for drinks and canapés while Caroline, Owen and I headed around the grounds in the golf buggy getting some gorgeous bride and groom shots. Everywhere you looked there was a photo opportunity.

After the speeches and dinner, the evening guests arrived as light was fading. the marquee now lit up like a beacon as more and more guests arrived, ready to dance the night away.
