Wedding venues in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, Scotland, often have their own wedding photographer. This can be of major benefit if you are planning your wedding at venues such as Castle Fraser, one of Scotland’s most prestigious and grandest baronial houses.

Castle Fraser is an idyllic setting for weddings, with its unmistakable influence of the French châteaux on this spectacular stronghold, with its wonderful turrets, balustrades and gables, making it the perfect venue for fairytale weddings and corporate entertaining. As an example, Castle Fraser offer their own photographer who has a detailed knowledge and experience of where to take the best wedding pictures in varying weather conditions and times of the year, taking cognisance of how the shining light can affect getting the very best wedding images. This is not something a visiting wedding photographer would be familiar with, and you certainly do not want your wedding photos to be subject to ‘trial and error’ from someone who is not fully familiar with the wedding venue.

There is a great deal of wedding planning involved for the big day, to include wedding flowers, wedding cars, wedding dresses, wedding cake, music, &c., and so much can go wrong to dampen the day unless there is a wedding checklist in place. Such is the importance of wedding photography, it might be worth putting together a list of photos that you would like.

To assist you to start planning your wedding photos, you might wish to consider getting wedding pictures done to cover:- getting ready, your hanging wedding dress, bridal photos to include small touches such as hair, jewellery etc., wedding rings, shoe shot, wedding invitations, wedding bag gifts for guests, groom’s accessories, bride and bridesmaid’s bouquets, groom’s and groomsmen’s button hole, portrait of the bride, bride first look, pre ceremony notes, pre ceremony emotions, father and bride, bridal party, bridal party solos, family shoot, dramatic wedding pose, bride on the move, bridesmaids at the ceremony, children at the wedding, wedding aisle walk, groom at altar, pets, distant shot of ceremony, special traditions, ceremony decor, guests, post ceremony, signing legal documents, reception decor, guest book, escort cards, reception tables, wedding cocktails, signs, music, cake, food, first dance, father and daughter dance, aerial shot, speeches, favours, exit, getaway &c.

As you can from the above list of potential wedding photos, this is quite varied and extensive. This is normally subject to a budget and the cost can be greatly affected by the number of wedding images you wish to be taken by your selected wedding photographer. The most important thing is – it’s YOUR wedding – so therefore you do not want to be in a position later on when you are wishing that certain wedding photos had been taken. Its also important that you get across to the selected wedding photographer what photographs YOU wish to be taken to remember your special day, as opposed to the photographer ‘going wit-h the flow’ and taking wedding snaps of what HE/ SHE would like.
