Glenapp Castle Hotel, Ayrshire

This has to be my favourite wedding venue. This fairytale castle boasts a beautiful walled garden complete with Victorian glasshouses and fish pond. Glenapp is a magnificent example of a Scottish Baronial Castle with lovely azalea pond which even has its own small pier. It has 36 acres of immaculately cared for formal and informal gardens and woodland and is situated on the rugged Ayrshire coast where there are stunning views across the Irish Sea to Arran and Ailsa Craig. All in all a perfect location for wedding photographers!
