We loved this wedding. The setting, the attention to detail, the lovely couple.....all made for a stunning day.
We had visited Tullibole Castle with Karen and John a few weeks before the wedding to have a look around and it got us really excited for the day. It's a very unique venue and we would really love to go back. Karen's main instruction to us for the day was to capture the atmosphere and she wanted lots of photos of her guests enjoying themselves. We really love candid photography ourselves so that was no problem.
Our day started off with the girls getting ready and everyone was so excited and looking forward to the day ahead. While the girls pampered the guys were finishing off the last few things at the castle and getting ready in the bridal cottage onsite.
The ceremony was held in the main room of the castle and then a drinks reception out on the lawn where Karen and John had organised gin, garden games and a fantastic jazz trio. Everyone was having the best time............. and then the heavens decided to open and it poured down! It was proper torrential rain! We all had a laugh about it and moved indoors. The mood was not dampened and as everyone mingled we caught lots of smiles, hugs and well wishes.
In the marquee Karen had really outdone herself with all the gorgeous details on the tables and surrounding decor. Everywhere you looked something caught your eye and it looked absolutely stunning.
Because of the rain we had to wait until after dinner to get some lovely images of Karen and John, and although she really isn't keen on the camera Karen did well (much better than the engagement shoot!).
It was really nice to see some familiar faces - we've photographed for bridesmaid Sarah before so it was lovely to catch up with her; she caught the bouquet toss.....so come on Douglas we're all waiting!! ;) We also met one of our upcoming wedding couples too so it was lovely to put faces to names as we had only communicated through email so far.
Dancing at night was in the barn and again you could just tell everyone was having an absolute ball. We've picked out just some of our favourite images to tell the story of their day and we can't wait to see Karen and John with their full gallery. Thank you to you both for having us, we loved it!!
