A love story in the Scottish countryside

By the heather and the Pentland Hills, Edinburgh

This Spring I teamed up with the fine art photographer Jacqueline Anne Photography and a crack team of other Scottish wedding suppliers on this magical and moody shoot in the Pentland Hills just outside Edinburgh.

Boasting a relaxed 1960s vibe, the shoot took place amongst the freshly sprung gorse - my favourite bloom for its amazing yellow hue and that to die-for coconut smell. The groom wore a muted skinny Harris Tweed suit and his bride a delicate Swiss dot floral caped dress. And check out that gorgeous florals created by Aoife at Feather Grass Florals.

The result - a youthful mid-century modern wedding that’s easy to fall in love with.

The yellow gorse is abundant at this time of year, and there’s no hiding from it. It is by no means the first nor the only dash of colour in the countryside in Scotland over springtime, but after a long dark winter where bright colours are short in supply, it emerges so boldly and so brightly, and in such stark contrast to the subdued winter, that it sometimes feels like the first and only colour of the Scottish spring.
