I’m not sure how to begin to describe Blair and Chloe’s Caithness wedding at the stunning venue that is Ackergill Tower.

Well I could start by saying what a beautiful part of Scotland this is.  Remote and located at the very top of the mainland, with a stone’s throw from John O’Groats, you’l find perched on the shoreline of Sinclair Bay the 15th Century castle that is Ackergill Tower.

When Chloe and Blair first mentioned that they had booked this ancient castle for their wedding day, I was incredibly excited to be able to visit and photograph it for them.  Both having family connections to Caithness, it was a great choice.

The night before the wedding day, a huge fire was lit on a nearby beach where guests walked down to enjoy a pop up bar, with local whiskey or hot chocolate on offer, and handfuls of sparklers to boot.  The sun sets at around 10pm this far in the north of Scotland, and the colours at dusk were incredible.   This special setting was an apt build up to the main event the next day.

The weather continued to be kind at Ackergill Tower for the wedding day (and up on the north coast of Scotland you can get anything from the sky without warning!).  One highlight being a local pipe band surprising guests as they rounded a corner with Blair and Chloe taking up the rear, it was such a perfect accompaniment to a setting like this.

As the rolling sea fog set in later in the day, which made for some great images I may add, it was back inside Ackergill Tower for a great Ceilidh to round of an epic wedding day.

I would certainly love to return to photograph in Caithness one day, it really is quite a special place.
