It was a lovely blue sky day on Saturday for the wedding of Emma and Craig at Echt Church and Ardoe House Hotel.

Emma and her bridesmaids got ready at Emma’s mum and dad’s farm, whilst Craig and the guys enjoyed a relaxed pre wedding photoshoot on Craig’s family farm.

Family and friends gathered at Echt Church to join Emma and Craig in their lovely wedding ceremony.

Emma looked stunning in her Ronald Joyce gown which she purchased at Avorio Bridal, and she was complimented by her four lovely bridesmaids Laura, Nicola, Susan and Kate who wore lovely pink dresses from Our Day Bridal.
Beautiful little daughter Amy, along with cousins Logan and Ellie certainly added the cute factor, and were so well behaved.

Craig wore his own Weathered Scott Tartan kilt, while the groomsmen hired the Weathered Robertson from Haddo Highlandwear.

After the ceremony it was time to head to Ardoe House to celebrate.

We enjoyed a lovely photoshoot with bride and groom in and around the lovely grounds of Ardoe House, before heading to the ballroom for a lovely meal.

Flowers by Judith had provided beautiful flowers for the room, as well as providing the girls with stunning bouquets.
As well as a lovely cake from Annies Cakes, Emma’s Granny provided a lovely fruit cake and a chocolate cake, adding a lovely personal touch.
Favours were pin badges, signifying donations made to Archie Foundation and Clan.

All that was left to do was enjoy great entertainment from band Last Resort.

We wish Emma, Craig and Amy all the best for a fantastic future together!

Saturday saw us back at the lovely Ardoe House with Sarah and Alec.

The weather was a little mixed, but we did at least get to spend some time outside.

Sarah looked gorgeous in her gown purchased at Elmar Bridal.
Bridesmaids Robyn, Zoe and Lindsay and flower girl Sadie, completed the lovely line up.

The men were kitted out at Keith Scott in Dundee, and after a trip to Hard Grind the beard specialist in the Green, were looking very handsome indeed!

After a lovely ceremony, guests mingled and we enjoyed time for some lovely shots of our Bride and Groom.
Sarah is a teacher, and was delighted that some of her lovely pupils came along to wish her well on the day!

After a lovely meal, it was time for some superb evening entertainment from band Velvet 5.

We hope Sarah and Alec are having a fantastic honeymoon, and wish them all the best for a wonderful future together.

It was chance indeed that this lovely couple met whilst both working in the same hotel in Edinburgh, considering Seb hails from France, and Kelly from South Africa!

Romance blossomed, and the couple moved to Aberdeen when Seb started work at Ardoe House Hotel.
The very hotel where they would eventually celebrate their marriage!

Kelly looked beautiful in her Estella gown by Ronald Joyce, which she purchased at Avorio bridal.
Her lovely bridesmaid Janine’s dress came all the way from South Africa!
Kelly and Janine have been best friends for many years, and Janine had travelled all the way from South Africa for Kelly and Seb’s special day.

Kelly and Seb had a very intimate ceremony which they celebrated with their closest family and friends.
Some of whom had travelled from both France and South Africa.

Just for a change it rained again in Aberdeen on Saturday!
Thank goodness for the beautiful interior of Ardoe House for some gorgeous shots of our bride and groom!

A lovely meal was enjoyed by all, before excellent evening entertainment from Jazz band Smooth Jazz Duo.

Congratulations to Seb and Kelly, and wishing them all the best for a wonderful future together.

Well last Friday was pretty rainy, but nothing could dampen the spirits of lovely couple Claire and John who were married at Ardoe House Hotel.

Claire looked gorgeous in her Ellis gown which she purchased from perfect bridal.
Her bridesmaids and lovely flower girl Aimee, complimented her beautifully in their mint green dresses from Angelique Lamont in Glasgow.

After a lovely ceremony, the couple chose to add a personal touch, by greeting all their guests straight afterwards, before leaving them to enjoy drinks and canapes.
We made the most of this time to capture our couple with their families, and of course to capture many special moments of the two of them.

Ardoe House was looking extra gorgeous, with it’s beautiful Christmas trees and lovely log fire, providing lots of indoor photo opportunities.
We even ventured outside, brollies in hand, to enjoy some outdoor time, as the rain finally eased off.

Guests enjoyed a wonderful meal, then a little bit of outdoor sparkler fun!
The fabulous evening entertainment was provided by superb band The Cartel, which was booked through elite promotions.

Lovely couple, and lovely family day.
Lots of tears and lots of laughs!

We wish Claire and John all the best for a fantastic future together as Mr and Mrs Duguid!

It was a perfect Autumn day last Saturday for the lovely wedding of Leisa and Derek at Ardoe House Hotel.

Lisa looked simply stunning in her gown from Perfect Bridal rooms, and her three lovely bridesmaids complimented her beautifully in their Kelsey Rose dresses, also from Perfect.

After a lovely ceremony with family and friends, it was time to enjoy our photo shoot with this very relaxed couple.
They were joined for a few family shots by their lovely dog Paddy, who was very well behaved on this very important occasion!

The function suite looked very elegant, with an arch and lovely silver candelabras provided by White Mice and Pumpkins.
The beautiful cake with a Scottish theme was provided by Truly Scrumptious cakes by Joanne.

Guests enjoyed a wonderful meal, and enjoyed listening to the after dinner speeches.
We heard one of the best ever “best man’s” speech (and we have heard quite a few!). This however was provided by Derek’s “best woman” Kerry. Maybe that was significant! Well done Kerry. That was a speech Leisa and Derek will always remember, with Kerry singing specially adapted versions of Derek’s favourite music to the great amusement of all the guests!

Earlier in the day guests were treated to some lovely relaxing harp and flute music, and singing from the wonderful trio from Oceans 3. In the evening they danced the night away to the fabulous band Velvet 5.
All entertainment was booked through Elite Promotions.

We wish Leisa and Derek all the best for a fantastic future together as Mr and Mrs Mitchell!

See below for all the suppliers chosen by the couple for their special day.
