Shieldhill Castle Wedding Photography

Shieldhill Castle wedding photography : Lovely Spring wedding featuring navy and green colour theme, daffodils and lots of fun candid moments!

I had been really looking forward to photographing Kirsty and Iain’s wedding at Shieldhill Castle from they day they booked me to photograph their day. After seeing photos of it online and hearing other wedding photographers speak highly of it I just knew it was going to be a fantastic day.

Based near Biggar Shieldhill Castle is set in lovely big grounds with a pond and has it’s very own chapel within the Castle. My day began with Kirsty and her bridesmaids getting ready in the Castle.  It was great as I was able to incorporate some of the Castle’s character and charm into the detail shots of the shoes, dress by using the beautiful stair case and reception rooms. Later on I went to meet Iain to took some relaxed photos of him and the boys around the grounds.

I loved how the piper piped Kirsty over to the Chapel, the walk across made for so great photo opportunities. During the ceremony Kirsty and Iain had some lovely personal touches such as a reading and lighting candles. Afterwards everyone made their way back towards the castle where they were given drink and then it was straight into a big group photo of everyone. I’ve found it’s always best to do the big group shot before people disperse towards the bar!

After the group photos I took Kirsty and Iain up onto the roof of the Castle for some romantic couple photos. For some variety to the couple photos we also went to the pretty little pond and found a grassy area where there were still some daffodils to add a pop of colour.

The rest of the day was full of fun with plenty of opportunities to capture natural, candid moments of people enjoying themselves.

Thanks for everything guys and all the best for your future together :-).
