Wow, what a weekend I’ve had! On Friday, my beautiful wife Claire gave birth to our gorgeous second daughter. Wednesday was the official due date. By Friday lunchtime, I was starting to think I was going to miss the birth due to filming Ayesha and Ketan’s Lennoxlove House wedding!
Claire did well, though, giving birth at 4.55pm on Friday 8th April. Such a relief that both Claire and baby are well and I was present for my daughter’s birth. Phew! Now I could concentrate for a few hours to film Ayesha and Ketan’s wedding.
So after grabbing a few hours sleep made the journey to Lennoxlove House. What a beautiful sunny day for a wedding! Lennoxlove House is a fantastic exclusive use venue. It boasts acres of private grounds and is steeped in tradition and history. Today’s couple, Ketan and Ayesha, were married by Ketan’s father in a traditional Asian ceremony.
The Lennoxlove House wedding video started with a Dholwala (Indian Drummer) and Scottish Piper announcing the arrival of Groom Ketan. He was led to meet with Bride Ayesha’s family in a musical procession across the lawn of Lennoxlove House. A truly fantastic sight and a great way to begin a wedding day! Moving on for the ceremony in the Great Hall, Bride Ayesha looked beautiful. She was wearing a very ornate dress, also being led into the Great Hall by the musical duo.
After a very heartening and entertaining ceremony, the newly-weds went out onto the lawn for a drinks reception and photo shoot. I recorded some gorgeous footage of the event. Lennoxlove is a stunning venue made all the better by the perfect weather!
The newly-weds were then led by the drummer and piper into the marquee for the wedding breakfast. This was a sumptuous affair consisting of various curries, rice, bread etc. All absolutely delicious! Catering was provided by the multi-award winning Heritage Portfolio. I’ve seen and tasted their creations at various wedding venues, including Hopetoun House and Mansfield Traquair. They are simply the best at wedding catering and are highly recommended. In conjunction with Lennoxlove staff, this is a wedding venue which is hard to better.
The speeches were after the wedding banquet. The Father of The Bride, Groom and the Best Man all providing witty and entertaining speeches and toasts which were warmly received by all.
The evening was rounded off nicely with me filming the first few dances which took place back in the Great Hall. The party was in full flow by the time I was finished. I’ve no doubt that everyone will have been partying on into the wee small hours!
A really perfect wedding day. Perfect weather, the perfect couple in the perfect wedding venue. It couldn’t have been a better day. It was a real privilege to have been asked to film such a special occasion. Thank you so much to Ketan and Ayesha!
I look forward to showing you your wedding video upon your return from honeymoon. Below are a few wedding photos taken from the wedding video. Enjoy!
