What better way to re-start our blog than with Alex & Daniel’s wedding. You can see our previous post of their Pre-Wedding Shoot here. We were particularly delighted to be asked to photograph Alex & Daniel’s wedding as we’d photographed Alex’s twin sister’s wedding a few years previously. This was one of four weddings we’ve photographed recently where we were invited back to photograph the sister of a previous bride – in two instances it was the 3rd sister. Alex & Daniel were married on the beautiful Isle of Bute at the stunning Mount Stuart. In typical west of Scotland style, the weather was “mixed” – mainly a mix of rain & wind! But no matter as Mount Stuart has its own white marble chapel that can be reached without venturing outside.
It felt like a real adventure, catching the ferry for the short sail across the Firth of Clyde to Rothesay on Bute.
As always, Jackie started the the day with the girls.
Alex’s hair was beautifully styled by Gail Rankin of Bespoke Wedding Hair. And Alex’s faultless make-up was by Lucy Gourlay of LG Make-up. Lucy & Gail made a super early start to be at Mount Stuart for Alex.
Alan joined Daniel and his groomsmen close by at Balmory Hall whilst they prepared (preparations included a taste of Daniel’s best man’s infamous Damson Liqueur Brandy).
Mount Stuart’s private marble chapel is like no other we’ve ever seen.
This stunning cake was created by Liggy’s Cakes who transported it safely all the way from Edinburgh to Mount Stuart.
The team from Planet Flowers had worked their creative magic everywhere.
We left Alex & Daniel and their guests to dance the night away and we were surprised how fresh many of them looked when we saw them the next day on the ferry back to the mainland.
