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 ❤

Meldrum House with Alison and Gordon

Last Thursday I photographed Gordon and Ali’s wedding at Meldrum House, Oldmeldrum in Aberdeenshire.  This was the first time I have been here, it looked lovely online so I was looking forward to it. I was spoilt for choice for places to take photos and we were lucky enough to have another sunny day.  Ali had put a lot of thought into the details and her colour scheme looked great.  They had a Humanist ceremony followed by a drinks reception outside while we took some photos around the grounds. The ceilidh dancing was in full swing when I left and I’m sure everyone had a great time, here is a selection of photos from their day…
