Wedding at Blairquhan Castle
Lorna and Alan’s wedding was set at the historic Blairquhan Castle in Ayrshire. The dramatic architecture lent a perfect frame to a beautiful wedding day. As per usual in Scotland the weather was 4 seasons in one day; windy, rain and a few cats ;) . Quite miraculously the sun broke after the ceremony lending a generous glow to the newly wedded couple.
One can imagine many families have traversed the hills and dales by foot, boat or horse to partake in family celebrations here, the walls contain family portraits, generations long gone, offering their blessings.Lorna and Alan chose a 1930s style for their day, adding to the timelessness of the event. Spring blooms reminded us of the newness of love and beginnings. The grand old trees served as a testament to the importance of roots.
The girls gathered around Lorna as in times long past, in the ritual of bridal preparation, while the groom waited in anticipation fresh pressed in his tartan.
Finally the bride made her descent down the grand staircase observed by her beloved and family and friends. A humanist ceremony was in order for the day as the couple exchanged rings and vows.
As the ceremony completed and the weather cleared the wedding party was able to go outside for photographs in the stunning scenery. There are so many extraordinary features on the grounds of Blairquhan Castle, making it one of the best places for Ayrshire Wedding Photography.
Then it was time for further celebrations as the couple went inside to celebrate with guests. Food music and dancing ensued ending a very brilliant day.
Thanks to Lorna and Alan for allowing us to witness such a fantastic event.
