By Jacqui Paterson In Weddings

Date: 7th of July 2016

Venue: Dalhousie Castle, Edinburgh

It seemed like so long ago when I went through to Edinburgh to meet Cecilia and Darroch as they were in the beginning stages of their wedding plans. I remember they told me about all the ideas they had and the just genuinely seemed excited about their day and the photography so I couldn’t wait to get their in the morning and get started.

I met Cecilia and her bridesmaids as they were all getting ready in one of the rooms in Dalhousie Castle. It was great to be working with make up artist, Emma Motion again.

Cecilia made an absolutely stunning bride and chose a dress that suited her perfectly. Her veil was amazing too, I couldn’t wait to get shots of it later.


We were running fashionably late but Darroch was eager and waiting at the bottom of the aisle for his bride.

Tanaka sang a beautiful song for the newlyweds, it was so beautiful and emotional.

After group photos I took Cecilia and Darroch a walk round the castle grounds which were perfect.

We had some beautiful words from the brides brother, Joseph, Darroch and best man Craig.


After dinner the party continued into the Alexander Suite, were the first dance was held.


Entertainment was provided by the fantastic band, Corra.


At around 9pm we ventured back outside for a couple more photos before the sunset. I love brides and grooms who are up for coming out at this time. It makes all the difference.
