Date: 16th July 2016

Venue: Mount Stuart House, Bute

I always love being back on Bute – the island I grew up on and I loved this day even more because I was working at the stunning Mount Stuart House. I met John, his bestman James and ushers as they were getting ready for the arrival of the guests.

Some of the stunning architecture at Mount Stuart House.



I then headed up to the horoscope room to meet Jill and her bridesmaids.

Jill looked stunning as she walked down the aisle with her Dad.

Jill and John got married in the stunning Marble Chapel on the grounds of Mount Stuart.

We had a bit of rain so we decided to do group photos in the drawing room.

I love this photo of them together on the Marble Staircase.


We then got a break in the rain and headed out to the beautiful gardens.

Guests continued to have a good time inside.

We then headed to a marquee set up at a local farm nearby with stunning views overlooking the Isle of Arran. I loved the rustic theme and details they had set up.


John and Jill made their grand entrance to cut the cake and sit down for their first meal as husband and wife. It was at this point I left them to enjoy the company of their guests and dance the night away. I wish them both all the best for the future. It was a beautiful Mount Stuart Wedding.
