When Lynsay and James first got in touch about their wedding, they were planning on getting married on the beach at Garlieston. Unfortunately, the logistics involved in making this happen proved to be difficult, so they decided on a fiordland teepee on the front lawn of the majestic Galloway House instead.

After spending some time in the morning capturing the bridal prep, I left Lynsay and her bridesmaids and headed off to Galloway House.  Lynsay couldn’t have chosen a more suitable form of transport to get to Galloway House, the horse and cart looked perfect coming down the drive of this beautiful 18th century country house.

After an emotional ceremony, which was held in a marquee next to the teepee, we headed off to the gardens for portraits. It seemed fitting that we also drove to the very beach that Lynsay and James had originally hoped to get married on, to take some portraits as the sun was setting.

The teepee was a really fantastic venue, and fitted the rustic feel of the day perfectly. It was decorated with bunting and there were haybales and flowers dotted throughout, showing great attention to detail. The evening entertainment started with some brilliantly funny speeches and then after the wedding breakfast, live music from the excellent The Copycats Band.

Some of you may have seen some of these photos in DG Life Magazine’s Wedding Special last year, but I wanted to share more from this wedding, as it was such a special day that I was really happy to be a part of.
