Drumtochty Castle Wedding


I look into Victoria’s eyes, looking at Mark, and I see a light. It sparkles and shines and Mark’s smile shows me he knows. Their hands find each other instinctively and as they walk away Mark says something that makes Victoria laugh, the kind of laughter that makes you grin even as it fades away.

These two are truly special people and watching them walk down the aisle, take their vows and celebrate this love to each other made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

– I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you’re here
Brighten my northern sky –

– Nick Drake

Victoria and Mark live in Hong Kong but met in the UK. Getting married in Scotland was the perfect choice: The rugged hills, tall grass and never ending sky were the most amazing backdrop to their wedding at Drumtochty Castle. And holy guacamole, what a wedding this was! When I met Victoria and Mark over a year ago and we spent hours on Skype waving cats around and laughing tears, with every little (or long!) email I exchanged with Victoria over the last 15 months, I knew this would be a corker. From the most beautiful stationary by Tom Gautier, the sea of flowers by Planet Flowers, the incredible place that is Drumtochty Castle and the magic that Shutterbox created (see a little trailer here), I could not have wished to work with better people. I could talk about the flowers alone for days. Instead I promise not to quote song lyrics again anytime soon and will leave you to take in some of the exquisiteness yourself.

Dear Ann-Kathrin,
I just wanted to say, by the time I got half way through your wedding photos of Victoria and Mark in Scotland from May 2014, my eyes had completely filled up and its not even my wedding!. Your photography is deeply meaningful and heartfelt and you captured (more) than the spirit of their journey. wow. It is SO good to see work like this again. Thanks for your lovely work and I would like to share you on my Style Coach site on Facebook.
Best wishes, Rachel xx
