Errol park wedding photography – Lucie and Kerr chose their own parish church in the pretty village of Meigle in Strathmore for their traditional wedding ceremony. As they live in the Old Manse just across the road from the church Lucie was able to prepare for her wedding at home. So I arrived early to get some shots of Lucie as she got ready. I then crossed the road to the church to meet up with Kerr and his grooms’ party who all looked resplendent in traditional Scottish dress. After some shots of them around the grounds of the church it was back over the road to capture Lucie as she and her father started their walk across the road to the church. Which she did, before realising she’d forgotten her bouquet and crossed back again and into the house to retrieve it. Thankfully this was all done in good humour so it didn’t look to onlookers like she was having second thoughts!
Lucie’s dress was beautiful, it had delicate lace detail over a bodice with a fitted cut and a sweeping train at the bottom giving her the most exquisite silhouette. Complimented with her loosely swept back hair and vintage pearl jewellery the effect was one of effortless natural glamour. Bridesmaids (Lucie’s sisters) looked lovely in pretty violet dresses with violet and cream bouquets. The flowers in the church were also gorgeous (a June wedding always means you get flowers at their natural best).
I loved the wedding transport, three mini’s pulled up outside the church to take Lucie, Kerr and the wedding party to the reception at Errol Park. It was amusing to see Kerr (who really is quite tall) fold himself into a mini before heading off to the reception.
Dating back to 1747 Errol Park has a magical feel as you approach it through ancient woodland and a deer park. It has the most beautiful grounds with breath-taking views of the river Tay. Shooting weddings at Errol Park (particularly in summer) is always a treat. I took Lucie and Kerr around the grounds shooting them in front of some of the quirkier outbuildings, the manicured lawns and the pretty walled gardens. I took the family and group shots outside the magnificent main house, and as it was June, it was covered in beautiful wisteria. (This venue really is a Perthshire wedding photographers dream!)
Lucie, Kerr and their guests enjoyed reception drinks inside the main house, with its luxurious interiors before heading up to the octagonal shaped stable block for the wedding breakfast. Catering was provided by GH Event Catering, who as always, provided the guests with amazing food. Then everybody happily walked back downstairs to enjoy a live ceilidh band and dancing, and for a mill around the grounds making the most of the warm summer evening. A fitting end for a perfect day.
A lovely friendly wedding at a stunning venue with lots of love and laughter. Congratulations to Lucie and Kerr for getting married and creating such a wonderful day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember.
