I’ve known Sam & Sylvia from many years, back when I lived near to Sylvia in Newcastle, and she was staying in the area for work. Her and Sam were in the early stages of navigating a (long distance) relationship. Eventually they moved to Scotland together. We stayed in touch via Facebook, and I was delighted when they got in touch to say they were getting married and wanted to book me!
After a couple of Covid postponements, their wedding finally went ahead in May 2022 in Aviemore. I absolutely adore Scotland and the Highlands, so I was delighted to take a trip up. It was fantastic being able to meet their friends & family the day before as well and really feel part of the gang.
They got married at the McDonald Aviemore Resort, surrounded by breathtaking scenery. After getting ready close by, they had a first look in the gardens outside. Tears all around!
Here are some highlights of their special day…
The Flowers were by The Flower Box, Grantown
Sam & Sylvia’s suits were Marc Darcy at Suits Direct.
Their hair was styled by Carly Young
After the ceremony, we took a trip in a fantastic Landrover Defender, driven by their friend, to their beloved Loch Morlich for some couples photographs The famous Spud The Piper came along too. We took some relaxed portraits on the beach, surrounded by the gorgeous scenery of the Cairngorms mountain range.
Their cake was created by the super talented Lily Rose Cakes -how absolutely cute are the Highland Coos!?!
They went beautifully with their rustic & wild table settings, which were also themed around different whiskeys.
The AMAZING Los Perros entertained in the evening and got everyone on the dancefloor, including me.
What an amazing day!! A huge thanks to Sam & Sylvia for booking me to shoot their amazing Scottish wedding in Aviemore. I had such a blast.
Congratulations to the new Mrs & Mrs x
