Couple: Fiona+ Alasdair

Date:  25th May 2019

We really love it when we get the chance to photograph at a new venue, so when Fiona and Ally got in touch and asked us to photograph their wedding at House of Craigie we were naturally very excited. Especially given that it’s such a lovely venue with amazing backdrops everywhere you point your camera.

The first thing we noticed when we arrived in the morning was that the venue had a real, homely feel, which is just amazing for a wedding as it totally helps add to the relaxed vibe Ally and Fiona were hoping for. We started off by visiting Fiona as she and the girls were getting the finishing touches put to their make-up while enjoying a cheeky wee glass of fizz.

Ally meanwhile was helping prep the marquee for the ceremony, as the typically unpredictable Scottish weather had put paid to plans of having the ceremony on the back lawn. Not to worry as the marquee was looking beautiful too. Then it was time to head inside and get kilted up before a few games of table tennis – what a great start to a wedding day

The wedding ceremony was a Humanist one which fitted perfectly with the overall vibe of the day. It was lovely and inclusive and gave all of the happy couple’s friends and family a little insight into how they got together and the amazing adventure they’ve been on ever since. Ally’s brother played a beautiful rendition of the Skye Boat song on guitar before we heard a reading from Fiona’s sister. In a twist to the usual tying the knot, Ally and Fiona had decided to tie a reef knot as they’re both share a love of sailing, a lovely little touch.

Before dinner, the weather even decided to play ball so we were able to get all the guests round to the back of the house for a big group photo. It was a fab way for everyone to get a good look at the beautiful grounds of the house.

The speeches are always a great way of sharing stories from throughout a couple’s lives, both before they got together, as well as expanding on what we heard during the ceremony. So it was really lovely to hear from Fiona’s dad, Ally, and his best man a nice mix of light-hearted and heart-warming tales.

Ally and Fiona, as well as all of their friends and family,  danced well into the evening thanks to the wedding band rocking out some absolute classics. They even got the dance floor going with a good old fashioned ceilidh, a superb way to get the heart pumping :)

Thanks so much for having us along to photograph your wedding, Fiona and Ally, we loved every moment of your big day!
