When Jamie was a boy, he spent many happy times in and around Kenmore on holiday, so when he and Joanne had to choose a venue for their wedding, they decided on Kenmore Kirk, nestling on the shore of Loch Tay and the historical Castle Menzies in nearby Weem.
Here guests we treated to a wide selection of Scottish weather – from fierce rain and wind to bright sunshine and warmth, starting with warm, sunny weather as they arrived at the kirk.
Joanne arrived in style – two vintage Citroens took her, her father and maids to the ceremony. After a beautiful service the couple jumped straight into the waiting car to avoid the downpour and headed back to Castle Menzies, where the rain was still pouring down. Joanne and Jamie were happy to step out of the car for a photograph, sheltered under a white umbrella.
After a champagne reception in the castle, the rain eased off and everyone was invited onto the lawn for a big group photograph, where guests finally had a chance to shower the couple in confetti! As guests made their way in to dinner, we took advantage of the dry weather and took a few more photos of the couple.
The couple and their guests were treated to a speech by Joanne’s father and a beautiful dinner by Gill Orde in Catering before being invited to an adjoining room to hear Jamie’s very touching speech. This was followed by a beautiful and very personal poem written and read by Joanne’s sister and then a funny “double act” speech by the two best men before the couple cut the wedding cake.
The couple then invited guests to join them on the dance floor for reeling and dancing, with music and calling by the very talented Callanish.
We wish Joanne and Jamie a long and happy marriage and look forward to showing them all the photographs once they’re back from honeymoon!
