Aswanley barn wedding in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Ashley and Matthew got married at Aswanley barn venue in Aberdeenshire countryside in Scotland. I had never been to Scotland before I flew over to Aberdeen at the end of August to photograph Ashley and Matthew's wedding day. Scotland greeted me with a balmy 25 degrees and sunshine and its rolling hills took my breath away. I wish I had more time to stop and appreciate the scenery, but the schedule was quite intense with the venue visit and final preparations. Ashley and Matthew chose Aswanley - a secluded country barn as their wedding venue, and it couldn't have been more perfect for them. Surrounded by fields and beautiful gardens it was a great place for a party. The day was styled to perfection by the ever so lovely Rebecca Barnett and the couple made the space truly their own by adding personal touches with her help. There were so many things I loved about Ashley and Matt's wedding day I don't even know where to start! They had the most beautiful and personal humanist ceremony I ever photographed (Ashley and Matt literally tied their own tartan knot!), and Ashley looked stunning in her David Fielden gown. And kilts, of course! Lots of kilts! Not to mention a scrumptious dessert table, macaroons, beautiful hydrangeas, whisky barrels and sequin table numbers. Oh, and the campervan. And polaroid table plan :-) Most importantly though, it was a day filled with love, laughter and happy tears. Love of Ashley and Matthew for each other, and love for their family and friends, who travelled from all over the world to celebrate. Ashley and Matthew, it was such a pleasure and a huge privilege to witness your marriage and to capture your wedding day for you! Wishing all the happiness in the world)) Dasha xxx
