Caroline & Jim, 13 December 2008, Whittingehame, East Lothian

Caroline and Jim had planned a Winter afternoon wedding in the small church next to Caroline's parents' house, which means so much to her and her family.
Guests were treated to mulled wine outside the church, warming them in the cold winter rain.
The charismatic (and very funny) minister Howard is a close friend of the family, so the service was very personal and warm.
After the service the couple were driven along the torch-lit road to the beautifully lit (and wonderfully warm!) marquee next door, where the 200 guests all contributed to a happy and lively atmosphere.
It was obvious to everyone that Jim and Caroline love each other very much and that all their friends and family think the world of them. We were so pleased to be a part of their big day, and wish them a long and very happy life together.

Winter Weddings

As the light in Scotland is becoming a rare sight and the frost is chasing everyone indoors, what could be more enchanting and heart-warming than a Winter Wedding?
Candles and fires burning, big winter coats, sparklers and hot drinks all contribute to a warm and cozy atmosphere.
We have put together a selection of some of our favourite Winter Wedding photos, and will be posting more in the next few weeks, as we venture out to East Lothian and Ayrshire for what promise to be truly magical pre-Christmas weddings!

Alice & Jeremy, 22 November 2008, Dunkeld Cathedral & Blair Castle, Blair Atholl

Alice and Jeremy had put a lot of effort into finding the perfect venue for their wedding, and it certainly paid off.
When Alice and her family woke up in a hunting lodge in the grounds of Blair Castle there was a fine layer of snow covering the ground and the sun was peeking through the clouds - the perfect weather for a Scottish Winter Wedding.
While Alice and her family shared lunch in the lodge, Jeremy and his ushers and three best men lunched in Dunkeld - there they met a couple who were married in Dunkeld two years earlier and had returned to celebrate their anniversary there. Clearly remembering their own happy day, they came over to congratulate Jeremy and put £20 in the drinking kitty for later that evening!
After the very emotional service in Dunkeld Cathedral, we went to the ruined part of the cathedral to take a few photos. To keep warm, Alice wore a soft white cloak over her beautifully embroidered dress (bought in New York, along with her mother Sarah's dress).
Back at Blair Castle, guests were treated to champagne and canapes in the grand rooms of the castle and dinner and dancing in the Ballroom.

Linsay & Patrick, 25 October 2008, St Giles Cathedral & Signet Library, Edinburgh

We first met Linsay when we photographed her sister Kirsty's wedding last year - so we already knew it'd be an amazing wedding, regardless of what the weather gods might have in store.
Linsay and Patrick had chosen the amazing St Giles Cathedral for their wedding, which looked truly magical - even with the storms causing a powercut meaning there were no lights inside the church other than the candles!
The couple and their guests quickly made their way through the wind and rain to the champagne reception and dinner next door at the Signet Library. The rooms there were beautifully and colourfully lit, making it a dream to photograph.
