Conor and Lisa had one of the most romantic settings we have been to in a long time at The Hermitage near Dunkeld. It seemed as if the whole forest and landscape was styled for their great day. Beautiful heather bouquets and baskets lined the trees as the bride and party processed through to meet the groom. In this shot they posed within the Folly atop the huge waterfall. A romantic memory to be cherished forever.
This stretch of magical Perthshire forest was originally designed as a pleasure ground in the 18th century for the Dukes of Atholl.
Douglas firs tower over the paths leading to the roaring Black Linn Falls, where the River Braan crashes down into the deep, foaming pools below. Overlooking the waterfall is the picturesque folly known as Ossian’s Hall, built in 1757 as the focal point in an extensive designed landscape. Decorated with mirrors, sliding panels and paintings, it has been refurbished to re-create the illusions of shock, surprise and amazement that were the aims of the folly’s original design. It makes a fine spot to contemplate the roaring, tumbling falls. And of course for a wedding ceremony.
In one of the images in the slide show here you will notice a fascinating discovery by one of the guests that the price ticket was left on the dress – hilarious! Not to worry, the party kept on dancing at The Mercure Hotel, Perth.
