Embo House is starting to show its capability as a Dornoch wedding venue, with the very lovely Agne and Jerry using it as the base for their celebrations in October 2018. Luckily, it was a fabulously dry and warm weekend, even though it was nearly November.
I was thrilled to be able to be around to take a few snaps, as preparations got underway. A marquee was erected in the back garden, on the circular lawn and its transparent sides allowed the sunshine and the garden views in.
It is also possible to erect a tent on the front lawn, looking out to the Dornoch Firth, but this couple decided that was where they wanted to take photos, as their guests (and priests) looked on! These two had previously been married in St. Finnbarr’s Scottish Episcopal Church in Dornoch, though there are in fact a number of churches in the town, (plus of course the beautiful, 13th century Cathedral) to choose from. And don’t forget that in Scotland you can also be married anywhere you can get the local registrar to agree with, including in Embo House, or on the beach.
…and as Jerry decided to carry his bride towards the sea, for some more “rural” shots!
Meanwhile, back at the house, the food was nearly ready, drinks were flowing and the party was about to begin.
As I left our guests to their party, the evening sun came out with real warmth and I reflected what a lovely Dornoch wedding venue this really is.
