03.04.10 Our Day by Design: Norton House Arrival

After around a 40 minute drive, we arrived at our reception venue, Norton House Hotel. Our car must have been fairly fast as we were out of the car before the photographers arrived so we did have to jump back in for a couple of photos first!

After we properly got out of the car, we were greeted by the piper and a glass of bubbly! The other cars had arrived by this time so mum and Ashleigh helped to lift my train and we made our way inside. The hotel wanted to show us the reception room all set up before anyone else got to see it so we went to have a look and everything looked great, with just a minor layout change needed to the top table.

By then the rest of the guests had arrived and we spoke to a few more that we hadnt seen at the church, while they also got their welcome drink and some canapes.

Then it was time to head outside for the first of the photos, the guest group shot...

  1. What a stately, gorgeous venue! I'm glad you got a chance to see the room decorated before anyone else. We did, too, and I'm so glad we took a moment to do that, because everything looked gorgeous. I never would have had a chance to take it all in, otherwise.

  2. I am just in love with your photographs. They really have captured your wedding beautifully.

  3. So smart about checking it out - we didn't do that although we asked our family to do the final once over.

    Honestly, these photos are everything a "Scottish Wedding" should be. They are so beautiful and are full of character. I love it.

  4. Such a beautiful place for a reception! I can't wait to see more -- loving your recaps

  5. WOW! Your venue was seriously something out of a fairy tale! So gorgeous!

  6. what a beautiful day! These pictures have a wonderful atmosphere.x

  7. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. That historic building must have been so incredible to be in.
