Wedding Photography at Drumtochty Castle

Monday, March 30th, 2009

I’ve just posted a slideshow of a wedding I photographed at Drumtochty Castle in Aberdeenshire back  in  October.  It was a lovely autumn day, and Drumtochty Castle was a fantastic venue for the occasion, it’s gothic grandeur peeping out between the amazing foliage colours of a Scottish autumn.  A wedding photographer’s dream!

After the service in the wedding chapel at the end of the drive, we sneaked off down to the wee loch to get some more intimate photographs of the bride and groom while the guests were getting stuck into their first glass of  champagne.
