Carberry Tower Wedding – Michelle & Alan
I was excited to be invited to photograph Michelle and and Alan’s beautiful wedding at Carberry Tower, situated just outside Edinburgh. When planning a wedding in Scotland you always have to have a contingency plan for rain as we have quite a lot of it but I don’t think even Michelle and Alan had planned on quite so much on their wedding day! So, what do you do if it rains on your wedding day nearly all day? Be like this happy couple and just embrace it and go with it!
Luckily Carberry Tower has some beautiful big room with most delicious light to accommodate any type of weather. I joined Michelle and her bridesmaids during bridal prep and quickly got to work photographing all her pretty details. Michelle had chosen dried flowers for her bouquet and buttonholes, they added a beautiful element of texture and prettiness and the best bit of all is that they last so much longer than fresh flowers, a beautiful keepsake!
The rain was coming down pretty heavy when I met with Alan and the boys so we opted for some relaxed portraits in Carberry Tower’s Drawing Room before heading back to Michelle. Michelle looked absolutely stunning in her Enzoani Instanbul Wedding dress from Emma Roy, the light in the Bridal Suite was just perfect to capture her before she went to meet her Groom.
A beautiful Humanist ceremony both personal and romantic, luckily there was a break in the weather and the happy couple walked out to a dried flower confetti tunnel with all their guests, followed by a drinks reception in the Drawing Room of Carberry Tower. The marquee looked beautiful with a rustic and vintage theme, Michelle had carefully chosen all the details for their individual beauty and put use her own DIY skills together with the rustic dried floral arrangements. Everything looked stunning and definitely represented their individual quirks and tastes.
Michelle and Alan were so lovely to work, I particularly enjoyed the relaxed and creative vibe and I loved the way they embraced the rain on their wedding day and luckily Carberry Tower with it’s sweeping tree lined drive made a great rain cover! Congratulations to you both, it was lovely being a part of your special day x
