From American Love story to a pretty Scottish Castle Wedding

Today I am excited to kick off the week with a romantic and pretty Scottish Castle Wedding with the Bride in a stunning blue wedding gown.

Images of the day were captured by Stuart Craig Photography.

Lesley and Richard flew in from the States to follow their dream of getting married in a Scottish Castle.

Richard had not only surprised Lesley with a proposal, but demanded that if they were to be married it must be in a Castle in Scotland.

Lesley accepted with a warm smile and the search began, and they found their dream venue in Dalhousie Castle.

 

Dalhousie Castle is located in Midlothian Scotland, near the town of Bonnyrigg, just 8 miles from Edinburgh.

The caste was the seat of the Earls of Dalhousie, the chieftains of Clan Ramsay.

The castle has 29 individually created bedrooms, many themed around famous historical figures and decorated in Scottish design fabrics such as tweed, tartan and twill.

Period furniture, rugs and carpets combine to create a richly warm and luxurious feel that’s deeply relaxing and truly welcoming.

Guests can enjoy dinner in the castle’s ancient stone-walled, barrel-vaulted Dungeon Restaurant, partake in falconry at the on-site mews, or relax in the private spa.

The castle is an idyllic location for weddings, from a small wedding for two, to larger weddings for up to 100 guests.

 

Stuart says of the couples Big Day…

 

“The guests arrived from all over the world to witness a religious ceremony in the quaint chapel, gasping with delight as a baby owl delivered the rings in fairytale fashion.”

“As we headed out into the corn field after the ceremony to mark the occasion with some photographs, the chemistry and charisma was unmistakable.”

“This was an American love story with a Scottish twist….”

Thanks very much to Stuart for sharing his fantastic imagery and this stunning Scottish Castle Wedding.

Such an elegant celebration in an outstanding location with gorgeous floristry and pretty purple touches, and the cornfield images stand out with the beautiful light grain against the bold attire of the Bride and Groom.
