Real Life Wedding: Dundas Castle


Dundas Castle is a the kind of castle of Scottish dreams. For Heather and James it was literally the place where dreams came true, especially after one or two re-scheduled dates.

The vision this pair had was of a relaxed yet crazy wedding and we can confirm that it was the perfect blend of both. Words that they use to describe their day are magical, romantic, joyous, effervescent, over the top and unique.

Heather and James we’ve loved getting to know you. We love that you don’t take yourselves too seriously. We love that family are your top priority. We love that you were up for climbing towers and chasing llamas (in a perfectly controlled manner of course). Above all we love that you picked us to be your wedding photographers.

Enjoy your highlights and come back to Scotland soon!

#BigBlueSkyLove,

“I promise, to weave my dreams
into your own.

That wherever you breathe shall
be my heart’s home.

I promise, that whether with
rags or with gold I am blessed,

Your smile is the jewel I shall
treasure the best.

Do you think then, my love,
we should marry, do you?”

“Yes,” she said smiling

“I do.”


Eileen Rafter, The Promise

Cassie and Tom’s Christmas wedding at Mansfield Traquair was a festive celebration of love, laughter and one or two surprises 😉 We knew this was going to be the most epic of weddings, but still we were both blown away by the energy of these two. This is a couple who live and love 100mph and everyone around them adores them.
