I met Fiona & Dave for the first time at The Queen’s Arms pub where we had some lovely rhubarb gin in the sunshine and clicked immediately. I already knew from Fi’s emails that we were going to have a great time getting to know each other (the delicious jar of rhubarb & ginger jam from Mull also gave me a pretty yummy clue into how kind and incredible this pair are), and I honestly just didn’t stop smiling the whole time I was either around them or emailing them - their wedding day was no different. Apart from maybe during the speeches when everyone was crying (including me). But they were happy tears, of course.
The wedding was held at Fingask Castle, a 16th century breath-taking castle estate with the most beautiful grounds. It sounds fancy, but this place is an excellent mixture of that vintage-but-eccentric-cool style that I love about many of our Scottish castles and old country houses. We had a crisp Autumnal day with lots of sunshine (and of course some rain for good Scottish measure - spot the rainbow!), and everywhere I looked there were loving, smiling faces. I feel like I say this about so many weddings, but honestly the amount of love filling the day was overwhelmingly wonderful. I get emotional just thinking about it!
Fi & Dave - you guys are heart-burstingly awesome and I can’t thank you enough for welcoming me in to be part of your day and making me feel more like a friend than “just” a photographer.
