Katie and Glen – Forter Castle Wedding

Katie and Glen – Forter Castle Wedding

With the Scottish week and Burns Night approaching, it feels only natural to share some stories about one of the very traditional Scottish weddings we’ve had recently. 

The drive to Glenisla is always adventurous. Beautiful sights, quiet narrow streets, slow rivers and colourful, autumnal trees… The castle may be deserted and well hidden but it’s all worthwhile to take the bumpy trip. Glen and Katie’s wedding in November wasn’t our first wedding there, but every time we’re here it’s thoroughly enjoyable.

Jasmin and Hugh – Arthur’s Seat Engagement Session

Jasmin and Hugh’s Arthur’s Seat Engagement Session was shot on a lovely evening back in June. We had been waiting for a nice, sunny evening for quite some time, as the end of May and beginning of June’s torrential rains evenings weren’t what we had in mind for a romantic engagement session.

I loved everything about the session. The happy wedding chats, the hopeful planning, considering different wedding day scenarios and the shooting itself.  Read more

Nikki and Barry didn’t want a wedding photographer or any formalities to start with. They really wanted their day to be as relaxed as possible, but I’m so pleased they changed their mind! Moreover, I’m delighted to hear that they loved the photographs they received!  

“Hi Justina,  we have received the photos and love them.  The whole day just looks a riot and you can clearly tell we had the best time by our big smiling faces,  lots of happy memories, thank you for capturing the fun we had.  It’s exactly the kind of album we wanted.
