Scottish Wedding Photography- Philippa & Jonathan, Comlongon Castle


wedding photographer Scotland


Just before Christmas, I headed over to Dumfries in Scotland to document the wedding of Philippa and Jonathan.  They had chosen the wonderful Comlongon Castle, around from the 15th century, as their atmospheric venue.  They were married by candlelight in the castle’s medieval keep, surrounded by their closest friends and family.  After a beautiful meal, the happy couple took part in an ancient Celtic custom of the Laird’s Blessing.  Their hands were bound with cords to represent their contract.  I also discovered where the phrase “jump the broom” comes from!  In the evening, guests had a lot of fun at the ceilidh.  Here are a few of my favourites from the day!

Are you herding cats when you try to get a family photo? 

Are you herding cats when you try to get a family photo? 

Let me paint a familiar picture for you: you're trying to wrangle your kids for that perfect family photo, but it feels like herding cats, am I right?  You've got one little angel posing perfectly, and just as you're about to snap the pic, chaos erupts! ...
