Andrew and Barbara wanted a photographer with experience at their venue, so I was delighted to be invited to shoot their wedding photos at Dalhousie Castle. Andrew and Barbara married at stunning Dalhousie Castle Hotel and Spa wedding venue, located a few miles to the south of Edinburgh, in Midlothian.
Dalhousie Castle is a top wedding destination for visitors from across the world. Andrew and Barbara’s wedding was a great example of this. Northern Irishman Andrew wed his beautiful Italian bride Barbara. Family and friends had travelled from many different countries to celebrate the union of this lovely couple. What a brilliant wedding day with a wonderful and friendly group of people.
The wedding ceremony took place within Dalhousie Castle’s chapel. A highlight of the ceremony was having the wedding rings ‘delivered’ by an owl.
Nuptials completed, everyone headed outside to congratulate our newly-weds and to begin the formal group photos.
I was so pleased that the weather was kind. While the guests enjoyed a glass of champagne, the newly-weds and I spent around thirty minutes shooting a selection of photos around Dalhousie Castle’s beautiful and spacious grounds. Our photoshoot ended with pictures of the newly-weds embracing on Dalhousie’s impressive ‘throne’!
It’s always entertaining when the speeches take place. Everyone gets to find out a bit more about the couple, as well as a few amusing anecdotes. Toasts to the newly-weds completed, everyone settled down to enjoy the sumptuous wedding breakfast.
My coverage of Andrew and Barbara’s wonderful wedding day ended after the first few dances in the evening. By the time I departed the party was well underway, with family and guests joining the newly-weds on the spacious dancefloor. Great to be back at such a wonderful wedding venue photographing one of my favourite weddings of the year.
With such a photogenic couple, their wedding album is going to look beautiful.
