An Airth Castle Wedding with Katie & Nicola

two beautiful brides

By Jacqui Paterson In Weddings

Date: 15th April 2017

Venue: Airth Castle, Falkirk

Another gorgeous sunny day in Scotland and I was excited to work with not one, but two beautiful brides. I met up with them a few months previously and we had some fun shooting their engagement shoot so I knew today would be fantastic. I met both brides as they were getting ready in rooms opposite each other at Airth Castle.

It was a relaxed morning with both brides excited to get the day started.

I love that they both wore wedding dresses, they were both stunning.

Nicola was walked down the aisle by her brother Gary and Katie by her Dad, Denis.

They had a fabulous humanist ceremony performed by Susan Douglas-Scott.

Afterwards we invited all the guests outside for a confetti shot.

I took the brides around the grounds for some photos and we found a secret garden.

The beautiful bouquets were done by Narcissus Flowers.

The sun was shining for us.

We gathered all the guests on the steps of the castle and a piper marched them down to the dinner room in true Scottish fashion.

We blessed the haggis then went into speeches. All very touching, emotional and funny. Its always a favourite part of a wedding for me.

In the evening we headed back up to the castle for some more photos.

I loved their cheesecake!

Both brides threw the bouquets and started their first dance as Mrs & Mrs.

The brides organised a ceilidh band for all their guests.

For the last shot of the night we took a photo outside the castle. Thank you so much to Katie and Nicola for letting me be part of their special day. It was a beautiful Airth Castle Wedding.
