Romantic Outdoor Winter Wedding at Crossbasket Castle

Crossbasket Castle is a luxury wedding venue in High Blantyre and the perfect location for a cosy winter wedding.

I was at Crossbasket Castle to photograph an intimate outdoor wedding in December 2021. The wedding ceremony was to take place on the castle grounds next to the river.

The wedding ceremony was scheduled for 4:30pm, nearly 45minutes after sunset on that day. The bride and groom decorated the ceremony area with fairy lights and exchanged vows as the sun continued to set.

The couple had written their own vows to each other, and took turns to read them out during the wedding ceremony.

Couple Portraits

We prioritized the couple portraits to make the most of the remaining light. We started off getting a few photos in the castle grounds with the fairy lights, then headed to the front of the castle for portraits next to the fountain.

Group Photos

After the couple portraits, we all headed inside the castle for some cosy group photos next to the Christmas tree.
