Fingask Castle with Laurie and Bobo

Last Sunday I was at Fingask Castle in Perthshire for Laurie and Bobo’s wedding.  The weather forecast looked grim but thankfully it stayed nice and sunny between the ceremony and meal and we were able to make full use of the lovely gardens that surround the castle. They opted for a Humanist Ceremony followed by drinks in the courtyard while we took some photographs.  I was booked until first dance so I was lucky enough to be treated to a high tea which was excellent, lovely big portions and plenty of cakes to choose from!  The had booked a ceilidh band to kick off the dancing, the dance-floor was full when I left and I’m sure they had a great party to finish the day.  Here is a selection of photos from the day:
