I have an amazing Scotland wedding from the archive for you. I was delighted to be invited to photograph Joshua and Isabel's wedding by the talented Ed Peers. We completed the dream team of wedding photographers with our friend Jay Rowden also joining us. As you probably guessed, it is not going to be a small wedding.
It was a wet August day when we arrived in Scotland but that wasn't going to dampen spirits for the biggest wedding of the year. The wedding weekend and photography kicked off with a festival-style welcome party at Myers Castle. As guests arrived, they were greeted by bands and entertainers who set the tone for the incredible weekend ahead. The party was just the beginning of what was to come, and Dream Events had planned every detail to perfection.
The wedding venue was Kinross House, just north of Edinburgh. This beautiful estate provided the perfect backdrop for Joshua and Isabel's wedding. With its stunning gardens and historic architecture, it was the ideal setting for a truly memorable day.
Isabel looked stunning in her Lihi Hod Bridal gown, and the flowers by Simon Lycett added a touch of elegance to the already stunning surroundings. Joshua had an amazing suit made from the family's Gordon tartan, which was a nod to his Scottish heritage. Every detail of the wedding was perfect, and it was clear that Dream Events had put a lot of time and effort into making the day unforgettable for everyone involved.
As a Jewish wedding, there were many traditions and customs that made the day even more special. Before the ceremony, Joshua participated in the Jewish prayer, which was a touching moment for all who witnessed it. The Tisch, a traditional Jewish gathering for the groom and his male relatives, took place just before the wedding under the chuppah.
Speaking of the chuppah, it was one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Covered in flowers by the talented Simon Lycett, it was the perfect setting for Joshua and Isabel to exchange their vows. The ceremony was very moving and brought many tears to the eyes of the guests.
After the ceremony, it was time to celebrate. The after-party was a huge event, with guests dancing the night away to the sounds of incredible DJs and musicians. By the end of the evening, there were even tall characters on stilts, adding to the already incredible atmosphere.
As the night came to a close, it was clear that Joshua and Isabel's wedding was a once-in-a-lifetime event. From the festival-style welcome party to the stunning Jewish wedding ceremony and incredible after-party, it was a weekend that nobody will ever forget. As a photographer, I was honoured to be a part of it, and I'll always look back on that weekend with fond memories.
