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!

Wedding at Forter Castle, Perthshire with Rachael and Dan

Forter Castle Wedding Karen Jackson

 

I have been dying to blog this gorgeous wedding for ages! I actually shot Dan and Rachael’s wedding back in August, they live in Devon and had organised everything online.  They hired the beautiful Forter Castle in Glenisla for the wedding and stayed their for the weekend with their closest family and friends.  They were having a bigger wedding reception in Devon last weekend so wedding photos were kept off the internet until then.  It was a very Scottish summer’s day, bright sun with a few rain showers from nowhere but in general it was lovely.  They had a Humanist ceremony in the Castle’s chapel followed by drinks and photographs.  There was a very relaxed feeling to the day, Rachael’s dress was stunning and Dan’s outfit was almost as good!  Here are some photos from their day…
