Adele & Jonathan: An Elegant & Romantic Wedding // Dalhousie Castle, Edinburgh

I do love a castle wedding and Dalhousie is up there as one of the most iconic Scotland has to offer. With it’s grand, traditional decor and extensive grounds this is one impressive venue to host any wedding.

I was absolutely delighted than Jonathan & Adele chose me to be their photographer. I started the day with Adele and her bridal party, to capture the preparations in one of the castle’s luxurious rooms. Before long, the Groom and guests arrived and it was onto The Chapel for the wedding ceremony. This was really special, with Adele opting to have the wedding rings delivered by one of the gorgeous barn owls from the on-site Falconry. I was delighted to capture the owl flying over the guests to deliver the rings to Adele who broke with tradition to receive them.

I always enjoy when couples opt to do things a little differently and this continued with a ‘meet and greet’ session with the beautiful birds of prey after the ceremony which the guests just loved! This was just one of the highlights of the day.

Jonathan & Adele were a fantastic couple to work with. One aspect of my job that I absolutely love is getting to know lots of new people and this was no exception. We had a lovely time exploring the extensive grounds for their couple shoot and I captured lots of authentic moments for them to look back on for years to come.

Here’s how it went…
