Balbirnie House Hotel Wedding Photography with Angela and Tommy

Balbirnie House has recently been voted the best wedding venue in the world so I probably don’t need to explain why I like photographing there! Angela and Tommy had their wedding here back in May on a seriously sunny day! I arrived to see the garden all set up for an outdoor ceremony…

Then I headed inside to find Angela and the ladies getting ready for the occasion…

The girl’s were ready early so we had time for some photos in their room before the ceremony.

Meanwhile Tommy and the guests were waiting in the sunshine…

After the ceremony, there was a drinks reception on the lawn and we took some group photos …

I also captured some of the happy couple, we found some shaded corners out of the intense sun!

I got some shots of all the gorgeous details of the day, how good does this cake look?! Can you spot the subtle Disney theme in the decor?….

After some hilarious and emotional speeches, the guests were surprised by some singing Waiters…

Even the real Waiters got into the spirit of it! The evening guests were next to arrive, followed by a bit of dancing…

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Keay!

Nicola and Ross got married a few weeks ago at Balbirnie House Hotel in Fife.  It was officially the first day of Spring and the weather was a bit chilly but dry so they were brave enough to have some photos in the beautiful gardens.  You can view these below along with some of the highlights of their lovely day….

Alison & Danny at Balbirnie House Hotel

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting Alison and Danny’s wedding at Balbirnie.  It was a sunny winter’s day with a snow/sleet/rain shower half way through the group shots… luckily Balbirnie has plenty of picturesque spots inside as well as outside!  The day had a lovely atmosphere and was full of personal touches including origami flowers, a coffee van to keep the guests warm, a Tunnocks teacake tower for the cake and a gramophone DJ to name a few.
