Achray House Hotel Wedding
Today I am excited to share Graeme & Julia’s intimate wedding at Achray House Hotel on the shores of Loch Earn. The Hotel was just right size for their wedding of about 40 people who gathered from all over the world. As you could expect when you have bride from New Zealand and Scottish groom. Their love story started while teaching English in South Korea! It was my pleasure to capture their day from the morning getting ready all the way to the ceilidh in the nearby Hall.
Speed boat arrival of the bride at Loch Earn
A super exciting highlight of the day was that, as a surprise for the wedding guests, the bride arrived on a speed boat. In the plan it was specified to arrive in elegant pace just so it doesn’t messes up Julia’s hair. So when I saw the boat rushing across the loch and I was terrified. But she looked stunning as she was walked down the pier by her father. During the shoot I asked Julia about it and she said with a big smile on her face “they let me drive”!
Group photographs and newly wed couple photoshoot followed on the banks of Loch Earn. With the drinks reception and a wedding breakfast served in the Achray House Hotel – again with the gorgeous lake views. In the evening the traditional Scottish ceilidh was the main entertainment in the adjacent Hall which was gorgeously decorated with fairy lights.
What Julia & Graeme say about their experience:
