Our shoot took place in the heart of Speyside in one of Scotland’s coolest wedding venues, The Craigellachie.

This intimate hotel was taken over in 2013 by London nightclub entrepreneur Piers Adam, who has transformed it into a chic-but-comfortable haven that specialises in exclusive-use, bespoke weddings.

As you can see from our shoot, every inch of this beautiful venue oozes style – is it any wonder that Kate Moss likes to come here?
