Katie and James were married back in June at the gorgeous Threave Gardens in Castle Douglas. Â It was a beautiful start to the day when I met up with Katie at her family home in Dumfries, we even managed to say hello to Katie’s horse in her wedding dress which I know will mean the world to her as he’s a big part of her life 🙂 As I arrived at Threave Gardens to quickly catch up with James before Katie’s arrival I was delighted to see the setting for their outdoor ceremony, a beautiful little nook nestled amongst the Â trees in the garden, the perfect place for a private ceremony in the public gardens. Â Katie beamed as she walked towards James who’s smile was as wide as hers 🙂 such a beautiful sight. Â Despite the glorious weather, true to form the heavens opened during the ceremony but everyone trooped on during the shower which only served to make the ceremony even more memorable 🙂
Katie and James had some beautiful handmade table names inspired by their love of the outdoors they are replicas of the forestry signage of their favourite haunts 🙂 Â The table plan was so good I had to double take I thought it was real! The handmade cake was just and a fantastic too with Katie and James on their many adventures. Â It’s sooo nice when family and friends go to so much effort to make their wedding day unique and personal.
To top of a fantastic day I took Katie and James out during the golden hour, and what a golden hour it was!! the light was just magical particularly shining through the trees lining the road. Â The very last shots were taken on Film on my vintage Canon AE-1 the colours are just beautiful.
Congratulations Katie and James, it really was a lovely day, I don’t think either of you stopped smiling, it was truly heartwarming and I hope you continue to smile together like that for many years to come xxx
