I grew up around Paisley so when Rhona & Stewart told me they were getting married there I was quite excited to go back and see how things had changed. They chose Paisley Abbey for their ceremony. I had never been before so a few months before their wedding, Rhona & Stewart arranged a private tour which included a history lesson (actually, it was an open tour for the public but it ended up being just the three of us). The abbey was founded around the 12th Century, apparently used to educate William Wallace, was the birthplace of King Robert II and hosts the marble tomb of King Robert III. To be honest, I was mostly in awe of the architectural beauty and the light… ah the light!
It is a stunning building and although photography is limited during the wedding ceremony, we were allowed back in afterwards to take advantage of all the natural light spilling in through the windows.
Rhona got ready at the lovely Ashtree House Hotel just off the main street and round the corner from the Abbey. Rhona and Stewart’s wedding celebrations continued in Paisley Town Hall which is an impressive building itself and built on the back of the booming Paisley textile industry in the 18th Century. As soon as I saw the architecture of the building, I had a shot in mind.
Rhona and Stewart had a very relaxed and intimate wedding surrounded by their family and friends in beautiful, historical surroundings. Thank you for having me there on your day, you were both so obviously happy and are perfect together! Wishing you all the happiness.
