The weather report was foreboding for Brendan + Lauren’s Balgownie Estate wedding. 90% chance of rain. What they got was an absolutely magical ceremony that broke out in sunshine and left a rainbow in its wake. The dark clouds drifted toward the horizon at sunset and gave us an incredible spectacle which the three of us took in as we climbed the hill behind the venue for some golden hour photos.

The lovely Summa from 2celebrants¬†moved everyone from tears to fits of laughter during the ceremony. You couldn’t help but feel happy for Brendan and Lauren for insisting on an outdoor ceremony even when all signs pointed to having it indoors.

The reception was full of a few surprises, including eye patches on everyone when the bridal couple were announced. You’re always going to get a fabulous night with a Balgownie Estate wedding and this was no different. Everyone hit the dance floor after the hilarious ‘shoe game’ and didn’t leave until Horses played to close out the night.
