Zoe & James at their summer wedding at Gleddoch House & Country Club
Zoe and James met at Glasgow University, and like most people – once you have something you love, you never want to let go – so after several years they decided to get married. Long overdue…! They chose to get married at Gleddoch House, which is a really nice venue to get married. Situated on the hills overlooking Greenock, it has stunning views over the Clyde Estuary and is surrounded by nothing but countryside. Wonderful. The house itself is lovely, too: plush and full of charm, and it has everything that anyone would ever want from a wedding venue, including some really helpful staff.
It was a packed house for the wedding, and when Zoe walked down the aisle she looked stunning in a simple white dress with lace embroidery and lace shoulders. It also had a small train. James does like to talk, and for once he was speechless when Zoe walked down the aisle. It was a stunning moment for a stunning bride. After the exchange of rings they had a hand-fasting and then at long last – they became one. They were Mr & Mrs Allen.
Afterwards it was the groups outside. It had been raining during the ceremony and it was touch and go – but as the ceremony was finishing the rain stopped, the sun came out and we had a big blue sky – so we got on with the photography. There was lots of emotion on show during the speeches, and also alot of humour – thanks to the best man. It was hilarious and certainly put a blush on James’s face. All in a god way, may I add. The evening started with the cake cutting – which was two deliciously looking two caterpillars – and then the first dance of the newlyweds. After that it was a free-for-all on the dance floor as the wedding band set to work. It was a lovely day with two lovely people, and I wish you well with your new lives together in Fort William.
