Intimate Castle Lachlan wedding

Big or small wedding?

Massive celebration, or a more intimate occasion?

Castle Lachlan near Strachlur in Argyll was the scene for this gorgeous intimate small Autumnal wedding, for Rachael and Alistair, accompanied by their dog Daisy.

While they had enjoyed a lovely balmy summer engagement session, the Autumnal weather was different, but it made the day feel cozier.

After Claire Digance performed their ceremony, we wandered along a dirt track road to the old Castle Lachlan. This sort of wedding works best if you’re prepared to bring the wellies, an umbrella, and hoist up a wedding dress.

For a small wedding, it was a perfect setting – a house that you can hire for you and a handful of guests, your very own Scottish castle. It has beautiful scenery, and if you’re happy to go with whatever the elements throw at you it really feels amazing. The woodland track leads to the shoreline of Loch Fyne, it’s incredibly pretty and wild, which is exactly what you’d expect from the west coast of Scotland.

Castle Lachlan really is a wonderful venue for small weddings. It’s small, cozy, and doesn’t need a lot to make it special.
