Elaine & Parin’s Scottish & Indian fused Lochgreen House Hotel Wedding, Troon

Elaine & Parin’s Scottish & Indian fused Lochgreen House Hotel Wedding, Troon

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!

Katy & Rikki’s Spring Wedding at Moorpark House Hotel

Katy & Rikki’s Spring Wedding at New Kilpatrick Church, Bearsden, Glasgow & Moorpark House Hotel, Ayrshire.

Katy & Rikki were blessed with a gorgeous spring day for their April wedding. We had the pleasure of having the whole day with them, which we love, and got to capture everything including the preparations leading up to the ceremony, and beyond right into the evening’s dancing!

They met at a beer tasting in The Good Spirits Co on Bath Street, Glasgow (they even still have the original tasting menu and ticket framed – cute!!) and that had a place in the theme for the day, whisky & beer! Sounds good to us 🙂

The venue, Moorpark House Hotel, was super! A whole country house to themselves! Well, and their friends and family! The whole venue can be booked, including rooms, making for a very intimate and cozy occasion. The roaring log fire in the snug also helped with that! (We love a fire!)

They booked a band that they seen busking in Glasgow city centre (Tom McGuire & The Brassholes) which is an awesome way to support local and upcoming musicians. We have provided links at the end to everyone who helped make this such a great day for they happy couple and all of their friends and family.

Our favourite shots have to be the confetti shot at the church door, we asked them to provide confetti and they gave us 48 boxes of it!! Yessss! The more confetti the better – as you will see!!

We wish them every happiness for the future, and we know they have already added to this by having had a wee baby girl at the beginning of the year!! Many congratulations to Rikki & Katy and all the very best for the future!

Enjoy the photos!
