A SUMMER WEDDING AT KINNETTLES CASTLE IN ANGUS

KINNETTLES CASTLE WEDDING PHOTOS

I first met Claire and Paul when they were in the very early stages of planning their wedding. They had fallen in love Kinnettles Castle and were planning a very relaxed, fun weekend with their family and friends. 

My unposed, documentary style of photography suited what they wanted from their day. 

They really wanted to have their ceremony outside on the terrace with the backdrop of the stunning Angus hills. It’s been a crazy summer of either strong sunshine or else torrential rain. They struck lucky and got (mostly) sunshine. It was a last minute decision for the hotel staff but once the call had been given it was all hands on deck to set the terrace for a wedding.

WEDDING PREPS AT KINNETTLES CASTLE

Paul had organised Buchan Claysport to lay on clay shooting for the boys on the morning of the wedding. They were dressed in ear defenders and shorts.  They looked quite different from the smart groomsmen I would see later in the day.  Meanwhile the girls were getting their hair and makeup done in the Castle. Claire was so excited and couldn’t wait to put on her dress. It was stunning, layers of white tulle and a ballerina style bodice.  I love seeing a Father’s reaction to seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time…Her Dad was so emotional and hugged her tightly.

AN OUTSIDE WEDDING CEREMONY AT KINNETTLES CASTLE

The ceremony was especially lovely. Happy tears, smiles and the usual visit from a wasp. The view was stunning, and the sun shone, what could be more perfect. I’m sure it was everything that Claire and Paul had imagined.

They were piped down the aisle in a shower of confetti.

KINNETTLES CASTLE WEDDING RECEPTION

The castle is a perfect setting for a wedding. Many Scottish Castles are old and a bit musty and needing some TLC. Not Kinnettles! It’s been beautifully interior deigned and is warm and comfortable. It’s definitely a boutique style castle.  The drawing room houses the bar where guest gathered to catch up with each other. Canapés were served in the main hall and the wedding breakfast was in the marquee. It’s the perfect spot for watching the sun set.
