Ballathie Hotel wedding, Perthshire wedding photographer - Alice and Daniel.

Beginning of the year is usually a busy time for couples getting married in the upcoming months. Wedding plans need to be finalised, suppliers booked and details arranged. It's hectic, but very exciting time! I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to share inspirational mood-boards put together with images from beautiful weddings I photographed. I will also be listing all the incredible wedding professionals I got to work with. First up is a snapshot from Alice & Daniel's wedding at Ballathie Castle in Scotland, kindly put together by Bridal Musings blog, who published the images back in December. They went for a natural, relaxed, country-chic theme which complimented the beautiful Scottish countryside and setting. There was a big focus on unstructured wild flower arrangements (created by  Blue Poppy Florist) for the decorations and pastel tones throughout. Flowers included ammi (lacy white flower) and love-in-a-mist, garden roses, spray roses (small buds), dahlias, cosmos (big daisy), astrantia (star), lavender, waxflower (or seasonal alternative), astilbe (feather), fresh green foliage, textural flowers including green berries and herbs. The florist also sourced all the containers/vases for the flowers, all the candles and the wooden crates used for outdoor decoration.The flat-lined marquee with wooden floor and support poles, as well as wooden crates and whisky cask barrels helped create the rustic feel. Alice wore an ivory lace Monique Lhuillier dress and the bridesmaids wore light mint green custom-made dresses by Emilia Wickstead. The bridesmaids’ dresses were all slightly different styles to complement each of their figures. All the dresses were quite flowy and natural, in keeping with feel of the day. 

Alice and Daniel had a cake table with several different cakes made by Three Sister Bake and small bites instead of one wedding cake, and guests helped themselves throughout the night. 

The event production company sourced and provided the whisky cask barrels for the outdoor drinks reception and were in charge of the marquee lighting. They also created the table plan frame (Alice printed the name cards to hang from the frame) and the dessert table using the barrels again based on some inspiration Alice got from Pinterest
