Orkney Island Scotland Wedding Photography
The Orkney Islands really did take my breath away; it is no wonder Scotland was voted the most beautiful country in 2017 by Rough Guides readers. Hannah and Dave got married in St Magnus Cathedral and held their reception in the Standing Stones Hotel. I love all the creative, personal decor that the couple crafted, the tables were all based on different books by Roald Dahl and there were edible – yes you heard right, edible – Willy Wonka chocolate bars, magic beans and marvellous medicine for all the guests to enjoy!
We also sneaked off during dessert to get the most wonderful sunset, dusky pictures.
Here’s what Hannah and Dave had to say about their photos:
“Hi Kirsty. So we sat on the sofa last night, glass of wine, wedding playlist on, and snuggled watching the slideshow together as you suggested…Just WOW! They are INCREDIBLE. We were both moved to ridiculously happy tears. You have really captured every single precious moment, and many more we just weren’t able to absorb on the day itself. Stunning photos of a stunning day (I still can’t get over that blue sky and sunset). We can’t thank you enough and are so grateful to have had the opportunity to have you and Greg join us up in Orkney. Thank you again, Kirsty, for our beautiful images. We’ll treasure them forever.”
