Wedderburn Castle wedding for Lisa and Paul

I love being a Wedderburn Castle Wedding Photographer, the place is perfect all year round ‘Remember - True To The End’, its on a big carved stone crest right above the entrance - perfect for weddings.

Lisa and Paul married here back in October 14, I remember it was nice and warm in the sun but cool enough in the evening to light the fires when it got dark.

Princesses for a day - Reportage photography for 'Cash for Kids' Charity, Radio Borders

It’s every little girl’s dream to be a princess and for Sarah and Emily Macleod (aged 5 and 3) it became a reality last week when they were treated like royalty at Wedderburn Castle. A day of pampering and being treated like a princess was their prize in the Radio Borders Cash for Kids charity auction. The winning bidder was dad Ross, who bought it for his five year old daughter Sarah. However, when everyone involved in the auction heard that Ross had two daughters, who had tragically lost their mum, one princess became two and Emily joined her sister at Wedderburn Castle.

Radio Borders Cash for Kids manager, Candy Rafferty, said: “One of the radio presenters happened to know him (Ross), and told me that he had two daughters and tragically his wife had died, so they didn’t have a mum. I phoned the owners of Wedderburn who immediately said they would be very happy to have an extra princess. I phoned the dressmaker who immediately said she would design two dresses. I phoned the hairdresser... Same story.

“It’s just such a lovely example of the generosity of Borders people, and as the charity manager at Radio borders Cash for Kids, I am blown away by it every single day.

On arriving at the castle for a day, Sarah and Emily were greeted in regal style and escorted to the Wedderburn’s grandest chamber, where they had their hair styled and were fitted out with tiaras and princess outfits from ‘A Perfect Fit’ in Coldstream.

Attending the princesses were Brian Rafferty, Royal Warrant holder and hairdresser to HRH the Queen when she is in Scotland, and a dressmaker, lady-in-waiting and courtiers from Radio Borders and Wedderburn Castle.

Amongst the princesses’ royal duties was the official opening of Wedderburn Barns, a new rustic party and wedding venue in the former Georgian stables at Wedderburn Castle. The princesses cut the ribbon on the barns, toured the premises and had official photographs taken at the castle and barns by Pictorial Photography.

Other official engagements included sealing documents and letters at the grand dining room table at Wedderburn and inspecting the castle and grounds to ensure that all is in order. Lunch for the princesses included a selection of special cupcakes designed especially for the day by Borders Cakes and Cupcakes.

A horse-drawn carriage ride around the ground of the castle finished off their day, courtesy of the Cornhill Carriage Company. Then after spending the day being treated like royalty in the castle, it was back to reality for the two girls.

Cash for Kids is the official charity of Radio Borders and provides a helping hand to children around the Scottish Borders and north Northumberland. They are currently running their Christmas Mission to help the thousands of children in poverty who would otherwise wake up to a Christmas without presents this year. They’re asking you to buy just one extra present this year - new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people or make a cash donation online, in person or over the phone.

Serious Car Envy - Specialist Car and Campervan Rental Website Photography at Wedderburn Castle

I've been allowed to drive super duper cars in the name of photography.  Just look at this bumblebee VW camper van, its my fave, you can even watch movies in the dashboard! 

Car photography is not my usual line of work but this job was a real joy.  The owners of Arkvendor specialist car hire have some stunning vehicles to hire and needed to showcase some on their website  http://www.arkvendor.co.uk/ .  Our friends at Wedderburn Castle  allowed us the use of their grounds for this photoshoot which makes it extra special, a real cross border collaboration.
