There is something quite sacred about the morning hours a bride spends with her maidens. The shared excitement and anticipation can be heard in every laugh and often shown through joyful tears. This shoot was designed to inspire a bridal party to savor these final moments together. We can easily succumb to chaos when a group of girls frantically get ready, but if we slow that process down and create a sensual environment for them, these precious moments can remain engrained in their memories, becoming a part of the magical process leading up to a ceremony.

The hills, glens, and moors of Scotland are absolutely captivating. Add a bride waiting patiently for her groom, and we can't imagine a scene more romantic.
While outdoor wedding venues are almost always our favorites, we know that it’s just not realistic for a lot of couples. If you dream of an elegant garden wedding, then there’s no better way to bring the outdoors in than with gorgeous flowers.
