Borders wedding photography

Emma and William’s Scottish Borders wedding

As you can imagine, I listen to lots of speeches. Whether it’s the Best Man, the Father of the Bride, or the Minister conducting the ceremony, I’ve usually heard most of what’s being said, in one form or another, before.
But Emma and William’s Scottish Borders wedding ceremony in Jedburgh’s Old Parish Church was different. It wasn’t just the lack of a central aisle, which meant I couldn’t photograph the couple as I wished to, it was what the Minister said in his address.
My own parents’ 60th wedding anniversary is looming on the horizon, and the ministers words on the meaning of love, in the long term, took on a special meaning. I’m not going to tell you what he said, as I’m going to use it myself in April next year! And I want it to remain a surprise….
After those lovely words we all made out way up to the Carfraemill Lodge Hotel, 30 minutes away. At a visit before the ceremony I’d discovered a single track road, that 400 meters from the venue, had the most wonderful tunnel of trees. I’m a sucker for either a beach or trees, so I was happy! As were Emma and William when I showed it to them.

Wedderburn Castle wedding photographer

What a perfect Saturday for a wedding at Wedderburn Castle. The sun shone, but not too hotly, the clouds came and went without dropping any rain, and Ashleigh and Ross got married surrounded by their family and friends.
Add to the mix two young and very cute bridsemaids, the beautiful relaxed setting of the castle and it’s interior, enthusiastic dancing in the evening, and it all added up to a perfect day!
As usual, you can see more photos by clicking on this link to the ‘order photos’ page.

Favourite Wedding Venues Wedderburn Castle

Wedderburn Castle, in the Scottish Borders near Duns, is one of my favourite venues to visit. It’s not just the stately building, the magnificent rooms and grounds. There’s also a lovely feeling to the place, of relaxation and care. Not to mention the food! They are one of the few venues I know that employ their own chef. No matter how large or small the wedding party, or whatever the weather throws at you, there’s plenty of scope for some wonderful wedding photography.
Ashleigh and Ross have just booked me to photograph their wedding there in June – but they live in Hong Kong and haven’t even visited Wedderburn. So while we can meet over a Skype call, I thought they might like to see a few photographs that show off the place!
