Scottish Wedding Photography with a Peruvian Twist

Scottish Wedding Photography with a Peruvian Twist

Wow, for Hazel and I this was a first…fantastic Scottish wedding photography with a Peruvian Twist at Carlowrie Castle. 

We were delighted to see Caroline and Nathan again after shooting their wonderful pre-wedding photos at Rivington earlier in the year.

Caroline and Nathan exude a deep connection and they are clearly totally in love with each other, which makes capturing beautifully natural shots easy at their Scottish wedding.

Nathan proposed to Caroline just over a year ago on the Inca Trail and you will see splashes of Peru featured in their fantastic Scottish wedding photography throughout the day.

The Morning

Caroline was surrounded by love and laughter from her mum, maid of honour and bridesmaids whilst getting ready for her big day.  We could see the details and colour theme start to unfold in this very room….with navy dressing gowns for the bridesmaids, which are seamlessly organised to lead into their navy dresses, and the beautifully detailed keepsake hangers with names and dates.

Whilst Hazel captured the beautiful bride stepping into her Morilee princess style dress with stunning belt embellishment and detailed bow back…I was with the groom and his groomsmen. I captured their excitement and slight nervous energy as they all dressed in their matching suits and bowties whilst rehearsing the much anticipated speeches. 

Nathan knew how to dress perfectly for this Scottish wedding photography in a Hugo Boss tartan suit jacket,  black trousers,  white shirt and black bow-tie (would you believe he had a secret outfit change planned later that evening)!

The Ceremony

The ceremony for this unique opportunity of Scottish wedding photography was held at Mayfield Salisbury Church.  Caroline and Nathan chose this church because they have strong family connections linked here. 

As the chamber choir sung and the string quartet played, you could feel the heart-felt love in this beautiful church that was adorned with the vivacious Peruvian colours chosen for the flowers that sat at the end of each pew.

The Reception and Evening

As guests arrived at Carlowrie Castle they were greeted by a fantastic 12 piece pipe band. The band proceeded to meet our special couple half way down the expansive driveway for their grand entrance as husband and wife into Carlowrie Castle.

All of the guests sat down to dinner in the impressive marquee.  They found their seats via the beautifully navy and gold crafted table plan, with unique ornate frames.

Whilst friends and family admired the candles and we captured yet more Scottish wedding photography moments with Tunnocks tea cake wedding favours (navy and gold naturally), the bride and groom were welcomed into the room at Carlowrie Castle with more fabulous pipe playing and splashes of those exuberant colours from the bouquets and button holes…it is at this point I spot another subtle Scottish wedding photography moment…a few simple Scottish thistles amongst this bright bouquet of colours.

Everyone enjoyed the exquisite food at Carlowrie Castle as the groom filled the room with love and laughter during his amazing speech…part of which he amusingly sang ‘Sweet Caroline’ with his uniquely chosen words.

After dinner Caroline detached her straps from her dress and touched in some red lipstick, whilst Nathan emerged in his second Scottish wedding attire for the day…this time tartan trousers and a classic black shirt.

Everyone enjoyed the fantastic sweet station and photobooth before celebrating on the dancefloor with the Ceilidh band.

It was magical to watch Caroline and Nathan embrace with their new connection whist they watched the fireworks as their special day completed.

Capturing Caroline and Nathans Scottish Wedding Photography

We truly adored every moment of this unique Scottish wedding at Carlowrie Castle.

From meeting Caroline and Nathan previously on their Rivington Love Shoot we knew the love would shine through in our known photojournalistic style.

We were confident that our natural, un-posed shots would fit perfectly with their Carlowrie Castle Ceilidh venue and fun personalities.

Caroline’s special details from colours through to wedding logo were unique and admiring and Nathan’s Scottish wedding tartan outfit changes were fabulous!

We were delighted to share their special day and even more thrilled to learn of their happiness once they received their special story without words.
