The Scottish Wedding:
When Stacey asked me to photograph her wedding at the Scottish Oxenfoord Castle, I think it is safe to say I was a little excited by the prospect! I mean, what is not to like? a trip to Edinburgh, a Scottish castle, an outdoor ceremony, men in kilts! Oh yes, this was going to be a good wedding!
Stacey and I know each other from our London days as jobbing actresses, where we performed together. It was so good to see Stacey again after all these years, and to photograph her tie the knot with Mike, aka Burglar (a nickname from their first date that stuck!)
So, off I trundled to the glorious city of Edinburgh, to photograph the Scottish wedding. Stacey got ready at a flat they had rented in the city of Edinburgh. Her bridesmaids and her mum with her. There was a lovely buzz in the morning, as the girls all got ready together.
Stacey looked amazing in her dress, which she teamed beautifully with a tartan sash to match the tartan of Mike’s clan. She was stunning and I really enjoyed taking bridal portraits in the window light.
The ceremony was outside with a steel band playing as she walked in. I loved the mix of cultures. It was a truly magical moment as Stacey made her way down the aisle to meet Mike. It was one of the most loveliest settings for a ceremony I have ever photographed.
We returned to this spot for portraits later, after drinks in the grounds of the castle and dinner in the grand hall.
Finally, the evening was topped off with a traditional Scottish Ceilidh. Everyone had an amazing time and it was a pretty fab day all in all. Take a look at my captures below.
