Elopement photo shoot in Loch Awe – Scottish wedding photographer
Kilchurn Castle was our first stop on the journey from Edinburgh to Fort William and for Madi and David also their first proper castle ruin sighting in Scotland.
After trudging out through the mud to get as close to the loch as we can, thinking that the mud might not make is possible for us to get there without wellies… WE MADE IT. And hell yeah it was worth it, what a view! It was also my first time at Loch Awe and it quickly became one of my favourite views in Scotland. Also, what a cool and atmospheric spot for an elopement photo shoot in Scotland!
Madi and David were certainly left in Awe of this Scottish loch! Just as I was.
Madi & David – Kilchurn Castle wedding photography
Kilchurn Castle is a ruined castle in Argyll and Bute in Scotland. Constructed in the fifteenth century, was in use only for around two hundred years and became ruins soon after. Photographing Madi and David at the Kilchurn Castle right by Loch Awe was one of my favourite photography adventures last year.
Getting married at a Scottish castle
There is no better adventure than a Scottish wedding at a castle.
Choosing the right wedding venue is second most important thing when planning a wedding in Scotland. Right after choosing the groom.
Getting married at a castle it’s not just about fulfilling a romantic dream to be a prince and princess for a day. It’s about preserving wonderful Scottish scenery in your photos and creating lasting memories. What’s more Scottish than a castle? I’m a big fan of adding dramatic Scottish views and landscapes to the wedding day, especially if you’re living abroad. We can find hills, trees and forests almost everywhere, but you will not be able to find such beautiful medieval castles anywhere else but in Scotland.
Aren’t the Kilchurn Castle wedding photographs unique and romantic?
Post-wedding photo shoot at a Scottish castle – Scotland photographer
And if a Scotland castle wedding or elopement is off-limits, let’s think about alternatives.
What about getting married somewhere else and then booking a post-wedding or post-elopement photo shoot with your photographer some time after your wedding? I think it’s a wonderful idea. Especially because during such photography session you will be able to focus on just yourselves. Finding the most beautiful spots to be photographed in. Be all in, in the moment and place, only you and the photographer. It gives a great amount of flexibility. You can start at a sunrise or wait for the sunset. Hike to a spot you’ve always wanted to see. Invite a friend to take ‘behind the scenes’ photos and make the session even more fun!
You will then be able to immortalize not only the incredible memories you associate with your wedding day, but also remember that awesome adventure. That unforgettable adventure when you and your husband or wife took a trip to a beautiful spot in Scotland and were photographed once again, in your wedding attire, after your wedding or elopement. Think about all the incredible photos you will then be able to share with your friends and family!
So whether you are planning a Scotland castle wedding, elopement or an after-wedding castle photo shoot, I would love to be a part of it. I have a great amount of recommendations, ideas and an ever-lasting passion for Scottish adventures.
