A summer wedding at Stuckgowan House on Loch Lomond

Lynsey and Richard live in Lochgilphead but they wanted to have their wedding somewhere special, so after a big search they decided on Stuckgowan House. Overlooking Loch Lomond, its a really beautiful place to get married. Besides the views over Loch Lomond, there’s the house itself, which is really nice and perfect for any small wedding.

The theme of the day was sunflowers. Did you know that the sunflower means much more to some people and had certain qualities…?

  • Feelings of adoration, admiration, and platonic love towards a person, such as a family member or friend
  • Loyalty and strong bonds between two people, as represented by the strong and upright stem
  • Seeking out positivity and strength, as the bloom turns to face the sun
  • Brightening your mood, through the vibrancy of the yellow or orange petals
  • Good luck and lasting happiness, especially in the Chinese culture

Lynsey wore a simple dress which was embroidered with lace and pearls, and Richard decided on a plain grey suit. They just wanted to keep things as simple as possible, which was how they planned their wedding ceremony. Lynsey walked in to the wedding room with the Beatles song ‘Here comes the sun’ playing, which made everyone hum. They had a Humanist celebrant, and with all humanist ceremonies, it was full of anecdotes, words of wisdom and words of love.

Afterwards, and after several group pictures, I took Lynsey and Richard down to the Loch for some pictures, finishing off back at the house for a few more. It was a beautiful sunny day, made every more so by the words of love and the bond between Lynsey and Richard. I wish them a long and happy life together, and many more sunflower summers….
