A few weeks ago I was back in Ayrshire at Portland Church in Troon and Rowallan Castle near Kilmaurs for the wedding of Ros and Robin. Rowallan Castle is one of these little known venues that is beginning to get more popular as the word gets out, it truly is a beautiful house and a great venue for a wedding.
These are a few of favourite photos from the day, if you were a guest at the wedding and would like to see a few more, please get in touch.
Gillian & Euan had booked me for their wedding about 18 months before the big day so it was a long time coming, which was frustrating, as I couldn't wait to photograph them at Rowallan Castle. This is a venue I have done corporate / commercial work at before but never a wedding, so I was as keen as chips to create a memorable set of wedding photographs for them.
It was a fantastic day, I don't think I have ever seen a couple laugh so much during the wedding service, actually whilst I think about it, they just laughed and enjoyed themselves all day.
Here are some of my favourite images from the day, if you were a guest at the wedding and you would like to see a few more, please contact me.
I made a visit to Rowallan Castle during the week, to catch up with the new events and marketing team they now have in place. Christine the general manager had contacted me about using some photographs I had taken at Rowallan for use in their new wedding and events brochure, I was more than happy to oblige and to be associated with the venue as I simply think it is one of the prettiest estates I have been to in all my years of photography weddings!
Rowallan has got to be the best kept secret when it comes to new venues now opening up for social and corporate events. It lends itself perfectly for weddings as you have not one but two castles to chose from (or use both) and is situated in the heart of Ayrshire only 25 minutes south of Glasgow. Both castles (13th and 19th century respectively) are nestled amongst cobbled bridges, flowing streams and lush woodland making the perfect backdrop for your wedding day.
Can you tell I like the place!?
The new castle can host weddings and receptions in the drawing room, library and dining rooms offering a grand backdrop for up to 80 seated guests, whilst the croquet lawn on the south side of the castle is the perfect marquee site offering capability for up to a 200 seated marquee.
If you are looking for a new and unique venue for your wedding, don't just look at Rowallan's website get in your car and go and have a look, it truly is a beautiful place. (Maybe phone them first and tell them your coming if you want to have a show around the castles though)!
