It was a beautiful day for a wedding at Glentrool. I must admit when Vicky and Ben phoned me in January to enquire about photography for an open air wedding at Glentrool during the first week of May I did think that it was a little ambitious. Glentrool is famed throughout Scotland for it’s vicious breed of midges and if the midges aren’t out then that is because it’s raining!
However as it turned out the weather and the midges were extremely well behaved and it was a fantastic outdoor wedding ceremony in a great location.
The wedding took place at Glentrool Lodge which nestles underneath the shadow of Bruces Stone located high on the hill behind the lodge and has some of the best scenery in the South of Scotland (if not the whole of Scotland). Glentrool is most known for its battle site which is commemorated by Bruces Stone and marks the victory of a small Scottish army over a much larger and superior English army during the wars of independence.
