Elaine & Parin chose their Lochgreen House Hotel Wedding venue very well, it is stunning! And on the West coast, in February, meant a West coast sunset!! It did not disappoint. Elaine & Parin were real champs braving the Scottish February weather for us to get some fantastic shots of them on the Troon Golf Course while the sun went down.
We love how Elaine & Parin had two ceremonies to represent both their faiths and heritage and show them coming together. The first a Church of Scotland ceremony and the second a Hindu wedding ceremony – with a fire pit! Both Bride and Groom had two changes of outfits to show their new blended union. Elaine wore a stunning wedding dress and then later changed into a sari to party. Parin looked so handsome in his traditional Indian attire and then changed into a rather fetching kilt for the latter half of the day!
There were so many little touches that brought both heritages together… There was a quaich during the Church ceremony, Elaine’s Mum homemade all of the shortbread favours, and the menu was both Scottish and Indian inspired. The colours and theme for their wedding day were purple and peacock feathers, so elegant!
The reception kicked off with a Ceilidh band which everyone had such an amazing time at! The band also had their own fused style of mixing traditional ceilidh dancing with modern songs, which was great!
Their signing board was a gorgeous purple watercolour map of the world so that people could sign from where they had travelled from, which was literally all over the world, to witness this marriage!
So, from the luxury of your seat, enjoy!! And many congratulations to Elaine & Parin!
