Wonderful wedding moments with The Cairn Collection
Couples look back at wedding photographs for years to come, remembering the magical moments from the big day when they said those two important words, I do.
These memories are sometimes mounted on a wall, placed in a glimmering frame on a bedside table, or tucked away safely in a photo album, but all have one thing in common – that special location where the snaps were taken.
Whether in a picturesque parkland setting, in front of a grand and historic building or with family and friends, every couple will have their favourite wedding photograph.
So to help brides and grooms-to-be searching for the perfect venue, we’ve selected one stand-out spot at each of our Cairn Collection hotels which host weddings, offering perfect backdrops from which to capture a memorable photo – smiles at the ready…
