Wedding Photography at The Buchanan Arms Hotel, Drymen

Posted In: Wedding Photography


I often end wedding albums with a ‘Happy Ever After’ photographs. The one above is of Val & Matt who got married at The Buchanan Arms Hotel in Drymen, Loch Lomond.

I like this venue a lot and not just because it’s very close, in fact I can see it from my house! I know this hotel well and it has in recent times benefitted from major investments. It’s a good choice for a wedding; there is an excellent function suite as well as grounds outside for photographs.

The photograph above was taken at The Viewpoint, a short pathway opposite the hotel. The view in question is across fields to Loch Lomond, a few miles away.

Val’s wedding preparations though started at the family home in Bearsden and this is where the story of her day begins…


These are just a few photographs of Val and Matt’s wedding; they of course got the full set. For each wedding I provide a good mix of pictures, portraits, candid’s, moments, detail shots, pictures of guests etc.

I know it’s obvious to say that a wedding is a happy day, but one thing I really did want to mention is that Val and Matt just didn’t stop smiling. There were so many happy moments to capture on their big day.


I like taking the detail shots using natural light and environments such as in the garden.


Love this moment, the finishing touches to Val’s dress.


Love moments like this with the bridesmaids all helping the bride to get ready


Always an emotional moment between the bride and her Dad

A private moment, shared by the rest of the wedding party!


Smiles and confetti flowing everywhere!
