Boturich Castle Wedding
Sarah and Kevin’s wedding at Boturich castle won our wedding shot of the year last year.
I am always a wee bit surprised to see how many photographers shoot at Boturich and how differently they shoot it. I cannot understand however why everyone doesn’t shoot a sunset picture here. It is without a doubt, probably one of the most stunning areas in Scotland to watch the sun go down.
As everything was taking place at the castle it was a great opportunity to get pictures of both the boys and the girls pre wedding. We did have a slight delay on the day as young Aimee , the brides daughter, wasn’t really too happy about all the fuss. After a few soothing minutes with mum we made our way to the marquee for the ceremony. Sarah and Kevin exchanged beautiful vows, rich in sentiment, high in emotion and with the couple’s son Kyle standing by their side and Aimee on her mum’s hip throughout ! It really was a family wedding.
When it came to the formal pictures little Aimee was kept satisfied in the shots as long as we interspersed the groups with a few selfies. As always with Boturich Castle we had to run to a very tight timetable and saved the majority of the couples shots until after dinner. Fortunately on this occasion it allowed us to use what photographers call the ‘golden light’ (the magic hour of lovely soft light just before sunset). I have to pay testament to Sarah and Kevin, they were so patient and braved the midges. A kinder more generous and friendly couple you would struggle to meet.
They are just lovely and I was delighted when they won the vote for the picture of the year. A well deserved award if ever there was one.
