Ballathie House Wedding Photography – Diana and James

Ballathie House Wedding Photography

Every time I return to shoot Ballathie House Wedding Photography it never fails to impress me. Diana and James had already experienced its delights as it is where Diana’s sister’s wedding was a few years ago.

On the day I arrived at Diana’s house early so I could get some shots of her as she made her final preparations. Diana and the girls were all getting ready in matching robes! Diana looked elegant in her lovely dress complimented by a lovely bouquet. After taking a few bridal shots around the house and in garden I headed off to meet up with James and his grooms party at Dunkeld Cathedral.

Dunkeld cathedral is an impressive building that sits of the banks of River Tay. The history of the cathedral can be traced to the ninth century when it emerged as an important religious centre for the early Celtic Church. Although no buildings have survived from that time the present building dates from 1318 and is very rich in history.

Diana arrived in style in James father’s vintage Riley car and was walked up the aisle by her proud father. Dunkeld cathedral is a majestic place for a wedding ceremony. The light flooding in from the stained glass windows gave me the most perfect light to take some great shots of Diana and James’ ceremony.  Outside I quickly took the chance to take some portrait shots of Diana and James before they were whisked off to Ballathie House (in that gorgeous vintage Riley car) for the reception.

On arrival everybody enjoyed a drinks reception on Ballathie’s perfectly manicured lawns and I took the chance to take more portrait shots of Diana and James.  The reception was held in a marquee in the grounds. Marquees are a bit of blank canvas so it’s always lovely to see what my clients have done with them. At Diana and James’ wedding I loved the blue colour scheme, the flowers and in particular the ceiling decorations of intertwined twigs. It was so original and really suited the chic and elegant style of the wedding.

After a sumptuous wedding breakfast, some very well received speeches it was onto the dancing. One of my favourite ceilidh band Corra were playing and had everybody up onto their feet and dancing in no time.

A great couple and a lovely wedding at a simply stunning venue. Congratulations to Diana and James for getting married and allowing me to tell the story of your amazing day.
