Despite Glencorse House being one of my favourite wedding venues, this was my first visit this year. It was also tmy first time where a wedding started late because a bomb scare delayed the wedding car!
The weather stayed dry until the official photos had been taken, and by then most of the guests were congregating around the bar! It certainly explained some of the crazy dancing that occured after the ceileidh had finished – I have the photos, but won’t publish them here for fear of embarrassing the guests….. Make sure you ask Tessa and Jay for the evidence!
There are more photos on their wedding gallery page here, and even more that Tessa and Jay will get on their return from their honeymoon.
There’s a unique atmosphere about weddings at Glencorse House. It may be the team that work there to make every wedding run so smoothly, or it may just be Paul’s catering skills! More likely it’s the setting, hidden away from the outside world yet just minutes from Penicuik and Edinburgh.
I believe that it’s unique in the Lothians in that it has it’s own church on site, a gem of a building that Robert Louis Stevenson visited, worshipped at, and wrote about: “”If my spirit returns to earth it will be found wandering through Glencorse Woods or sitting on the old bridge at Glencorse Kirk, the finest spot on earth”.
Anyway, here’s a selection of photographs taken over the last few years of Glencorse House weddings.
Dawn and Ewan’s wedding couldn’t have been more perfect. For once this summer, it didn’t rain. When you add that to an amazing dress, a cute flower girl, the fantastic Glencorse House and it’s private kirk (and its staff) Roddy from Reel Time piping, and dancing to Cut the Cake and plenty of friends and family, you certainly have a recipe for a wonderful day!
PS: I forgot to say that this was the first wedding I’ve been to where the minister quoted from a Bruce Springsteen song!
