I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, god bless the bonny bonny banks of Loch Lomond! No wonder people write songs about it.
There are loads of venues along the banks on Loch Lomond (See my Blog here) but for Kay & Finn a big factor for choosing the Lodge on Loch is that its dog friendly! So their lovely boys Ben & Thor could come along to (Thanks to Jemma at Hounds & Heritage!)
Overnight stay for brides at Lodge on Loch Lomond
Its always nice to see some of my favourite suppliers in the morning, name I Do Make Up by Geo Kane and NC Hair who took care of the girls in the morning whilst the guys got ready a short drive away at Morelaggan House in Arrochar.
Church of Scotland Ceremony, Loch Lomond
Another beautiful wee personal touch to the day was Finns Uncle Fergus Buchanan who conducted the ceremony – I love it when couples are able to bring personal elements like this into their day, makes for a really special ceremony.
Once that was over it was out to the beach by the Loch for canapés, drinks and photos! You’re really spoiled for choice down at Loch Lomond, but I decided to stay close to the venue as I don’t like my couples being away from their guests for too long (unless they want to, of course!) and it also meant photos with the dogs, Yas!
Book themed wedding tables
They wont mind me saying it, but Kay & Finn are book nerds! Their tables were things like Lord of the Rings, Twilight, Game of Thrones, The Witcher and the absolute king of them all, reserved for the top table – Terry Pratchett! These wee centrepiece’s were so beautiful and again, really personal to the couple – Great excuse to by more books too!
What is a twilight wedding at Loch Lomond?
So what the heck is a twilight wedding? And no, I dont mean the Sparkly Vampires. A Twilight wedding is a wedding that starts anywhere in the late afternoon, say 5pm, and goes straight into the evening reception.
Technically this wasn’t one – but when you get gorgeous twilight light and two mad goths it would be rude to not use it! I took the couple a short drive to enjoy the Scottish Scenery – We done these photos below and then it was onto the dancing with the Foot Stompin’ Ceilidh Band!

THE BIGGEST thanks to Kay & Finn for letting me be part of their day and for their kind words during and after the wedding. Huge, huge love to you both!
