Wedding Photography at it’s best is happy people having happy times and that is exactly what we got when I shot Richard and Katriona’s wedding at the amazing Winton Castle earlier this year. It also happened to possibly be the muggiest day in Scotland’s history. Winton Castle is located less than twenty minutes outside of Edinburgh, but it feel’s like youre way out in the middle of the Scottish countryside. The castle itself has been beautifully looked after and is full of amazing nooks and crannies that make for great wedding photography. Plus because of its size both the girls and boys where able to get ready onsite. Which gave us the opportunity to get both sides of the bridal party preparing for the big day.
Ceremony Time ! and the main room in the house is brilliant and ideal for photography because of all the natural light that it lets in. After the I do’s it was outside for some confetti throwing and champagne on the lawn outside. At this point we got the opportunity to take those all important family photo’s followed by the even more import couple pictures. Winton has one of those good problems, in that there are literally so many places to take pictures, it can be a hard to know where to start. Thankfully we had already shot some engagement photos here last year and it meant that we knew exactly what we wanted to capture and where.
Next it was off to diner in the castle where the guests got to listen to speeches before the room was the turned around for the evenings ceilidh dancing. This then gave us some extra time to take pictures with the bride and groom and all of their close friends having fun on the lawn outside. We even managed to sneak in a couple of sparkler shots when it got dark. All in all a thoroughly great day with great people to whom I wish all the best.
