ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FIFE
The Kingdom of Fife has many of the ancient seats of power in Scotland and wedding photography Fife usually reflects some of those locations. It’s magnificent castles, seascapes and landscapes blend with the modern bustle found in towns like Dunfermline, Glenrothes and St. Andrews and offer all styles of photography for the big day. Here are a few of our favourite locations for wedding photography in Fife.
The Rufflets Country Hotel is one of the oldest and most prestigious in St. Andrews. Its elegant gardens, bars and ballrooms make the job of setting traditional photographs very easy. The nooks and crannies of this old jewel are however best seen as a backdrop to a documentary style wedding where candid photographs capture guests enjoying the moment at their most relaxed.
Few wedding destinations can compare to the romance and splendor of a Fernie Castle near Cupar. Woodlands location provides a beautiful setting for your wedding pictures and is an attractive choice for those couples looking for an exclusive, all day wedding venue.
St. Andrews is of course the home of golf and every couple planning a wedding in the Fife area should take a look at the many attractions offered by the Royal & Ancient. For golfing couples this is perhaps the only venue in Fife, but Balbirnie House in nearby Markinch is another popular destination for upscale weddings in 18th century mansions in Fife.
The shoreline and old houses of Fife are truly magnificent, but it is her castles and abbeys that offer some of the finest wedding scenery in the world. These ancient places, with often violent pasts dating back to Viking times have become some of Scotland’s most beloved landmarks. A wedding ceremony with expert photography in one of these special places is truly magical. From the village of Falkland and its new Palace rising out of the medieval ruins of the old, to the Abbey of Inchcolm in the middle of the Firth of Forth in what may be Scotland’s most stunning wedding day location.
A wedding at Inchcolm involves a cruise to the island by boat from Edinburgh or South Queensferry followed by a journey back in time for the senses via the ceremony inside the ancient walls of the Augustinian chapel. Once inside, listen to the deep baritone timbre the acoustics lend the priest or minster then close your eyes and imagine the monks singing 1000 years before on this very spot. Ask your photographer to explore some of the small anterooms and annexes of the old abbey with you and capture the wedding party in the unforgettable splendor of this 12th century setting.
Edinburgh castle and the Royal Mile are never far from view from the east coast of Fife, but as you look back on your photos over the years, the magic of wedding photography in Fife will make you glad you booked a gifted photographer and had your wedding celebrations on the north side of the bridge.
