It was a lovely crisp Autumn day for engagement portraits.   Amy and Davie will be getting married in June 2014 at Twynholm Church and will have their reception at Threave Gardens in Castle Douglas.   It was a lovely opportunity to have a chat about their arrangements and to spend some time with them today.

They chose to have their engagement portraits taken at Gatehouse of Fleet and so we parked in the car park next to SPAR and went for a stroll around the park and a small woodland.  Gatehouse of Fleet is a lovely small town in the middle of a National Scenic Area by the edge of the Galloway Forest Park.   The town takes its name from the River Fleet which winds through the town before flowing into Wigtown Bay at Fleet Bay. Gatehouse of Fleet was a thriving industrial centre with cotton mills in the 17th and 18th Century, so much so that it was nicknamed ‘Glasgow of the South’.  Local historical attractions include the nearby Cardoness Castle, a late 15th-century tower house that was home to the McCullochs.

After the shoot which lasted around an hour it was time to say goodbye until the wedding next year.  Congratulations to Amy and Davie both, your plans sound fab for your wedding next year and I can not wait to provide your photography, meanwhile here are a few of the engagement portraits…
