Altskeith House Weddings
I often get asked to recommend wedding venues in Scotland. This is part of a growing series of blogs that describe some of my favourite venues for weddings. For each one I've explained why I like them so much, showing examples from weddings that I have photographed at them. This blog features my favourite venue in Scotland for Wedding Photography - Altskeith House, Loch Ard.
Hopefully the photograph above and the ones that follow will help to demonstrate my reasons for liking Altskeith House on Loch Ard so much. It's not just for the beauty of the house and the stunning scenery that it is set in, but it is also that it is so well run by owners Alison and Yas, who work incredibly hard to make each wedding very special. They have a real talent for photography themselves and are very helpful to me as a photographer.
