Catherine and Owen originally met in Brighton through mutual friends, and chose to get married at the beautiful Dalhousie Castle in Edinburgh. Their big day brought a gathering of family and friends from all parts of the world, all eager to witness the happy couple tying the knot with a civil ceremony in the atmospheric setting of the chapel. Most notably, a large Australian contingent (they all arrived the right way up) had made the trip from Owen’s homeland to wear a kilt for the first time and celebrate with traditional tartan. Thankfully, the weather played along and allowed us to venture outdoors into the woodland for some photographs afterwards. Here is a flavour of their festive wedding day…

Special thanks to Sarah McMichael who was my second shooter. Sarah is one of my brides from this earlier this year (blog here) and did a great job whilst making sure the boys looked the part! Especially useful was having someone to hold an off camera flash which came into it’s own once darkness fell. As the Jiggers lit up the dance floor, Sarah was in the perfect position to join in the fun, hiding behind people to create mobile lighting of our own. You might even spot the flash positioned behind the bride and groom for the last photo (above) in front of the castle.
