Get swept up in the romance of this gorgeous styled shoot at Wardhill Castle, Inverurie

A gorgeous autumnal colour palette paired with the stunning setting of a truly Scottish castle set the scene for this styled shoot, pulled together by friends Casie Fischer, owner at Thistle Wynd Productions and owner at Taylored Plans, Donna Taylor.

The pals, who lie on opposite sides of the Atlantic, wanted to intertwine elements of both Scotland and the USA in the shoot, and used a wealth of local suppliers to the Aberdeenshire area to showcase the best produce and services available to couples getting married in that area.

Wardhill Castle is steeped in history. With its connection to the wedding of Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie (Rose’s family owns the castle) this year, the castle has found itself at the centre of much press, and growing in popularity.

“The theme of local luxe history encompassed the grandeur of the estate, all of the extremely talented wedding suppliers in the northeast of Scotland, and the history of the 900-year-old family home,” says Casie, who studied in Aberdeen but lives in Houston, Texas.

Donna agrees, adding, “It’s my passion and my business to connect not just with the wonderful couples that are about to embark on the adventure of planning their big day, but with all the amazing wedding suppliers right here on my doorstep in Aberdeenshire.”
