Fasque Castle Wedding

Fasque Castle has always been on my wedding venue wish list so I was excited when Shawn and Stuart booked me to photograph their day.  The castle and it’s grounds are pretty impressive…. The Castle interior is just as impressive too! I arrived to find a very chilled out bridal party having a laugh while they had their Make up done. The boys were just as relaxed, enjoying a dram of Whiskey in the Library. What a photogenic room!  I loved Shawn’s hair, she was the coolest of brides!  I also wish all rooms I do Bridal Prep in looked as good as this one haha! I think her Dad was impressed too <3   It rained heavily all day pretty much non-stop so there are very few outdoor shots but I love a bit of puddle reflection in my photos!  After the ceremony the guests gathered for a drinks reception …. I took the Bride and Groom for a short photo shoot around the beautiful Castle…  We got some outside photos….. with a bit of shelter!  There were so many small details around the Castle, I loved the colour scheme that Shawn and Stewart picked 🙂 Some group photos on the stairs before speeches and dinner…. The happy couple made a grand entrance to kick off the evening reception!

Congratulations Stuart & Shawn!

I got a lovely email when they received their photos as well:

Thank you again, you did a fantastic job we really love our photos ❤

 

Elopement to a Scottish Castle

Forter Castle is one of my all time favourite wedding venues.  It is only a 40 minute drive from Dundee but feels like a million miles away.  It is so remote and quiet with background noises of sheep and birds tweeting and views of miles and miles of un-spoilt countryside. Colin and Toni came from Australia to have their wedding here which I think was a great online shopping choice!  An elopement to a Scottish Castle is always a good choice if you ask me!  I love how dark and cosy the bridal suite is in the Castle.  Toni did her own hair and make-up with the help of her Mum and Sister. Meanwhile Colin’s Mum came from Seattle to sort him out!  The ceremony was outside in the Castle grounds, which made a stunning backdrop for photos 🙂 The ceremony kicked off with a song Colin had made for Toni.  He enlisted her Dad to be his Guitarist and I think she like it… Poppy the dog definitely did!  Once the knot was tied and papers were signed, the guests all went inside to warm up while we took some photos outside before the rain came on! It was such a relaxed and happy wedding, I probably don’t need to say that, you can tell by the photos!  There was a bit of confetti action during the group shot as well….  Toni and Colin got a nice warm welcome on their return and sat down for dinner with their guests and a few speeches.

Congratulations Toni and Colin, I hope you all had a great holiday in Scotland!  I got a lovely email to say:

The photos are perfect! Thank you so much!
