Isle of Bute was the location for Brendan & Jacqueline’s beautiful wedding at the spectacular Mount Stuart House. Isle of Bute wedding photographer Andy Allan was there to capture the days’ events as they unfolded.
Getting to the Isle of Bute
The journey didn’t take long as I set off from Glasgow alongside Lee Phillips from Nine18 Weddings who was doing the film & drone footage. Spirits were high. We were both eagerly looking forward to getting a look round Mount Stuart.
The day started with some coverage of the Groom, Brendan with his best man and ushers.
They had gathered in the billiards room for some rest and relaxation and liquid refreshments ahead of the big day.
The amber nectar was flowing as the groom competed for control of thee table.
The Wedding Ceremony at the Marble Chapel
As interiors go, the Chapel at Mount Stuart is pretty spectacular. Lined with the finest white Italian marble and crowned with a magnificent lantern it really is a sight to behold.
The groom awaited patiently for his bride to arrive and didn’t have long to wait.
Jacqueline was looking resplendent in her stunning dress and veil. Escorted by father of the bride the audience looked on with eager anticipation as she was walked down the aisle.
Spoilt for choice for Bride & Groom photographs
There are no shortage of areas for Bride & Groom photos at Mount Stuart.
Brendan and Jacqueline had already said that they wanted photographs in the mirror room.
This was a great idea and when we arrived we needed to take our shoes off so as not to scratch the immaculate mirrored floor.
We got some beautiful shots of the bride and groom in the mirrored room as well as the marble chapel.
Evening reception at Mount Stuart
Guests gathered in the main reception room and awaited Mr & Mrs Crozier to make their entrance. Brendan and Jacqueline appeared at the marble stairway and threw their arms in the air. It was a great moment to photograph them both from behind the guests seating area.
Speeches, Dances and Fireworks ahoy!
Ahead of the wedding breakfast there were speeches to be had. Brendan was in good form and the father of the bride warmed the guests up nicely with some good yarns.
The groom Brendan had laid on a special surprise for the bride by arranging a fireworks display on the lawn. I was informed of this ahead of the wedding by Brendan and so I knew exactly where I wanted to be positioned.
I decided to be in the room with the bride and groom to capture the fireworks as they exploded in the night sky.
It’s fair to say Jacqueline was overwhelmed by the display and by the whole days’ events. A few tears were most definitely shed as the evening dances begun back in the reception hall.
