Callendar House & Park – Kelly & Darren’s Wedding
“People love dogs. You can never go wrong adding a dog to the story.” – Jim Butcher
Childhood sweethearts are a very rare and precious thing to behold, especially those that go the distance. Kelly and Darren met at school when they were just fifteen.
Ten years and one dog later they went out for a meal to celebrate their anniversary. Afterward whilst walking Belle the dog around Linlithgow Palace, Darren got down on one knee and asked Kelly to marry him.
That was in February last year and this July I had the absolute honour of capturing their wedding.
I have never witnessed such a quick ceremony! My couple were keen to be married with minimal fuss and attention.
It was an absolutely glorious day and they couldn’t wait to be outside at one of their favourite spots.
Callendar Park is a favourite place for Kelly and Darren to walk Belle and the wooded areas make for some great images. When I met my couple for their pre-wedding consultation we had a good traipse around all their favourite spots including Kelly’s favourite tree.
Guest of Honour
After a slightly delayed arrival due to a very bad ‘shortcut’ Kelly and Darren’s best girl arrived. Once Belle appeared you could see them visibly relax and start enjoying themselves along with their immediate family and friend.
Belle was such a good girl and was delighted to be amongst all her family.
If you know, you know! The second spot we agreed on during the pre-meet was a part of the woods that gave me serious Twilight vibes. Luckily Kelly was a big fan too 🙂
I had this image in mind from the moment we went there and I’m happy to say it executed even better than I imagined. Plus this lot don’t even need to sparkle to look good! (again if you know, you know.)
Belle of the Ball
Can I request a dog at every wedding? Capturing these images was so much fun.
Honestly, she was such a model and better behaved than some guests I’ve witnessed over the years!
We met back up with Kelly and Darren’s guests for some pictures outside Callendar House, well it would be rude not to really!
Then everyone was off for a meal to celebrate.
Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Wilson and Belle xoxo
