Jen & Bryan's Humanist Wedding at Dundas Castle
Most couples wait til after their ceremony to get their photographs done, but not Jen and Bryan! I came across them out on the lawn in front of Dundas Castle looking windswept and interesting, as Billy Connolly used to say.
Jen's mum Chris looked very glamorous as did their flower girl Ebba who had the presence of mind to curl up in her mum's lap and sleep through the whole thing!
Bryan's best men, Russ John and Geo waiting to greet the guests at the foot of the Castle's 'auld keep' which dates back to 1416 and has an underground escape route that used to end up in South Queensferry - that's a lot of digging.
The chapel at Dundas is very lovely, even with nobody in it. If you look very carefully you can see the harpist, Rachel Hair, in the top left hand corner.
Most weddings at Dundas end with the bridal couple up on the roof of the keep which has wonderful views over the Firth of Forth; I grabbed this quick snap of Jen and Bryan, but I look forward to seeing the professional ones soon.
