Sam and David's Wedding at Dundas Castle

Where could be more romantic than Dundas Castle – one of Scotland's most beautiful castles, renowned for its magnificent and exquisite rooms and hallways?

The Auld Keep was the perfect setting for Sam and David. Their ceremony was romantic, quirky, and very ‘them’. 

For a start, they chose to stand the opposite way round to the traditional ‘Bride on the left, Groom on the right’. 

They each wrote their own vows and read a poem that beautifully expressed their individual hopes and dreams for their marriage. Humour was added into the mix by Sam’s close friend Nikki who read the lyrics from ‘When I’m Sixty-Four’ by The Beatles, and wowed the guests by singing the last verse! 

Sam and David also chose to drink from a Quaich during the ceremony – a Scottish tradition that seals the bond between two people and symbolises the joining of two families.

It was a privilege to work with such a lovely couple and I’m delighted that Sam and David sent me these great shots by photographer Neil Redfern and this note:

“We just wanted to say a big thank you for making our wedding such a truly magical day for us! You were wonderful throughout; so thoughtful, diligent and warm and the ceremony was just perfect – everything we ever dreamt it could be! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, it’s so appreciated.”
