Hillside Hobbit Wedding in Scotland with Secret Ceremony and a Pub Quiz

Eleanor has dreamed of her perfect wedding day since she was little. Add to that Dean’s dream of an outdoor forest wedding, and Marthrown of Mabie in Scotland gave them the perfect location for their low-key hillside wedding weekend. On day one they had a pub quiz night, where they snuck off to have their secret ceremony under the stars and day two was spent on a hillside with incredible views over the Solway Firth and to the Lake District.

They were keen for the wedding to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and told us, “We used a lot of what the venue had already, and fitting in with the natural surroundings – gathering fern to decorate the marquee, and picking flora from the roadside to make my bouquet. The venue catered, and sourced everything locally, donating leftovers to a local animal shelter (except for the piles of it that our dog ate).”

“We tried to do something cosy and friendly with a bit of retro decorations and a lot of good music.” wrote Benjamin. “We started the reception with the concert of our friends and family! During an hour they played together our favourites rock and pop songs. They created a band just for the occasion! It was awesome and was probably what most defined our wedding – both side of friends and family had a great time together like one unique family!”

Modern Film Noir

Christy & Daryl’s engagement session has such a dramatic and cinematic feel that I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. As well as my crazy obsession with all things wedding and photography, I have a bit of a penchant for the over-dramatic, in particular the film noir style, and this session reflects that to a ‘t’…yet with fabulous a modern twist! Those shadows are like nothing I’ve ever seen!

“We set off one night with my good friend (and amazingly talented photographer) Edison Miclat, to find a nitty gritty location” Christy told me. “A factory / industrial park by the rail road tracks made a perfect back drop for our photo adventure. The night started with us creeping around an ivy covered building, and ended with dancing in a stinky ole meat delivery truck! The shoot was hilarious and so much fun. I’ve always loved Edison’s mellow demeanor and his ability to produce cinematic, natural images. I am absolutely in love with the results.”
