Ballathie House Hotel Wedding
Ballathie House Hotel Wedding. As an outdoors photographer, whether it be photographing weddings, cars or even landscapes, there are two things I really love. One is nice weather and the other is nice scenery. As a wedding photographer especially I love the already mentioned but I also really love outdoors weddings, which I don’t really get to do a lot of here in Scotland.
For this blog post, of which is the first of two, I’ve been asked not to use the bride and grooms names, which is perfectly fine, but I’ll have to refer them as “bride and groom”. So a few months ago they hired me to photograph a wedding at Ballathie House Hotel, which is just north of Perth and resides in a really beautiful part of the country. As a general rule in Scotland, the further north you go the more beautiful it gets and Perthshire really is beautiful.
Ballathie House Hotel I believe was recently awarded CIS Independent Hotel of the Year and it really is lovely. The hotel itself inside has a real country hotel feel to it but the grounds it resides on, right by the River Tay, are absolutely beautiful. You’ll notice in this blog post more than others I’ve included quite a few landscape type photos.
The wedding itself ran on an absolutely beautiful day with blue sky, barely a breath of wind and really bright sunshine. My real task of the day was to capture the ambience of the day and while I didn’t include a lot of photos as they had children in them (I’m always hesitant posting children photos) I really enjoy this kind of wedding photography. The bride and groom were an absolute pleasure to work with, one of the nicest couples you could ever meet, and the whole day was an absolute joy to be part of.
Everyone seemed to have great fun and apart from one gentleman passing out from the heat (hard to believe someone can pass out from it being too hot here in Scotland) the whole day ran smoothly and again was a pleasure to be part of. To summarise I was out somewhere in the region os 13-14 hours and it felt like I was out half of that time.
So below is a collection of photos from this Ballathie House Hotel Wedding. I’ve included more photos than I probably would normally but this is simply because I enjoyed the day so much and feel there are so many great photos to share.
Hope you like.
