Gilmerton House Wedding, North Berwick
We absolutely adore photographing weddings at Gilmerton House, and Catriona and Jonathan’s special day there will show you a lot of the reason why. The beautiful building, the stunning interior design, lush garden and friendly staff mean we are always a little giddy when heading to Gilmerton.
Situated in the heart of East Lothian and close to the beach in North Berwick, Gilmerton House has quickly become one of our all-time favourite wedding venues. It offers couples exclusive use of the mansion house and extensive landscaped gardens, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Catriona and Jonathan’s day was filled with sunshine, smiles and the most beautiful, delicate colours throughout.
Catriona’s exquisite lace and crystal encrusted gown was by Jenny Packham, who also designed the bride’s to-die-for shoes.

Local florist Sweetpeas Floral Design, based in Haddington, created the stunning bouquets of pink roses, scabious and eucalyptus sprigs.
The couple’s friends and family arrived in glorious sunshine for the wedding ceremony at Direlton Kirk.
When you head for one of the most beautiful stretches of beach for your wedding photos, you have to be prepared for THIS!
(Thankfully we were coming, they were going, so we had the beach all to ourselves…)
While guests made their way to the marquee for dinner, we managed to sneak in a couple of photographs of the couple in the lovely garden.

Thank you Catriona and Jonathan for choosing us to capture your wonderful day, we enjoyed every minute of it. We wish you every happiness for the future, and hope our paths may cross again.
