Blair Castle with its fairytale turrets nestled in the dramatic landscape of the Cairngorm mountains is a truly romantic location.
Fiona and Jeremy chose the Castle for their highland wedding on what started as a sunny weekend in May. Their Humanist wedding ceremony and their reception took place in Blair’s stunning Victorian Ballroom.
After dinner, the rain stopped just as Fiona & Jeremy led their guests outside, where the sound of bagpipes filled the evening air as The Vale of Atholl pipe band performed. Jeremy and his groomsmen, changed from their top hats & tails to highland dress for the first dance & evening reception much to the delight and surprise of Fiona. One of the many musical highlights of the day was when Fiona’s brother joined the band and led a rendition of the Dougie MacLean’s ballad, ‘Caledonia’ .
We received this beautiful note from Fiona & Jeremy which we’re very proud to share:
“Alan and Jackie were such a pleasure to work with and incredibly professional. On the day despite being almost invisible to us they managed to capture all of the most memorable moments perfectly. We have the most beautiful wedding album which we’ll treasure for years to come. Thank you Alan and Jackie!” Fi and Jez xxx
