Fiona & Andy's Wedding at Balbirnie House Hotel

Weddings at Balbirnie House are always spectacular and this one was combined with a ceremony at St. Michael's Church in Linlithgow which is positioned right beside the impressive Linlithgow Palace. On the day of Fiona and Andy's wedding I arrived into the bustling busy town of Linlithgow, near Edinburgh in hot hot sunshine, not a common sight at a Scottish wedding. Fiona and Andy mirrored this sunshine by smiling all day.

When Fiona arrived at the church she was greeted by admiring crowds of tourists while Andy waited in the grand and silent church. As she headed up the aisle she was framed by the arched doorway and the magnificent vaulted ceiling above. These two were high school sweethearts and shared sweet knowing smiles throughout the ceremony and many laughs with their friends. Fiona and Andy wanted very relaxed wedding photography so we had a little explore around Linlithgow palace before heading to the stunning Balbirnie House Hotel in Glenrothes for their reception. As the spring sunshine shone down everyone enjoyed drinks on Balbirnie's vast lawn while a Jazz band created a soundtrack to the day, the children made up games to play around the beautiful gardens and everyone was very relaxed and in the mood for some fun partying.
