two families coming together

By Jacqui Paterson In Weddings

Date: 3rd Sept 2016

Venue: Dalmahoy Hotel, Edinburgh

When I met Caroline and Ali before their wedding day, they were so excited and had some great ideas. The Dalmahoy Hotel is a stunning venue with its own chapel on the grounds so its perfect for weddings. I met Caroline at the house as she was getting ready with the girls.


Caroline is just a natural beauty.

The bridesmaids were on hand to help with the dress.

I then travelled to the Dalmahoy to meet Ali and the boys. All looking smart in their suits.

The chapel is beautiful. Perfect setting for a wedding.

The Dalmahoy has a great outdoor staircase, perfect for group shots. We then got the confetti out!

I then took Ali and Caroline for some photos on the grounds. They were amazing in front of the camera.

After speeches we took the golf buggy down to the lake for some evening photos. There was no sunset but it was still worth it.

We came back for their cake cutting and first dance.


The guests then partied the night away! Thanks to the happy couple for letting me photograph their day. I wish them all the best for the future. It was a beautiful Dalmahoy Wedding.
