Gemma and Scott had a beautiful Cally Palace Wedding. Cally Palace is part of the McMillan Hotel chain and is located in picture postcard Gatehouse of Fleet in Dumfries and Galloway, Cally Palace was originally an 18th century country mansion and is a magnificent and imposing sight.
In the build up to the wedding their had been several weeks of bad weather including some of the heaviest snow that had ever hit Dumfries and Galloway. Finally the snow gave way to a single sunny day at the beginning of April and blessed a very romantic wedding and the first wedding of 2013.
The Cally Palace hotel is set beside a superb 18 hole golf course, designed by the well known golf architect Tom Macaulay, the Cally Course opened in 1994. The course is for the exclusive use of hotel guests and in this case the whole hotel had been reserved for the use of the bride and groom and their many guests. The golf course also provided us with many exciting opportunities for beautiful photographs and spectacular scenery. This was also the first time that I had been chauffeured around during the bridal portraits in a golf buggy!
The ceremony was a humanist celebration and was conducted by Susan Douglas-Scott who conducts a brilliant service.
Every detail had been thought of and Gemma and Scott were excellent hosts and really good fun to work with. I am sure that they will not mind me saying that when I first met them for their engagement shoot they were very unsure about having their photographs taken, the second time around they were totally relaxed and eager to add their own ideas for the photographs. Congratulations to you both it was a wonderful day and you both looked fantastic. Wishing you health and happiness for the future.
