"Don't ever think that married life is about settling down, it has nothing to do with settling down. It's about stepping up and stepping into everything that God has purposed for you together."
We’ve known Josh and Rachel for quite a while now. We've had the pleasure of filming them on quite a few occasions: starting way back at their Senior Prom, several times as guests at other weddings, and most recently when Rachel was a beautiful bridesmaid to Emma-James. However, this year, it was Rachel’s turn to take centre stage as she married her childhood sweetheart at the picturesque Aswanley Wedding Venue in Huntly.
The corridors at the Huntly Castle Hotel were ringing with laughter on the wedding morning as Rae Mathieson Makeup Artist and Sienna Morris applied the finishing touches to the beautiful bridal party.
Meanwhile, it was all systems go at Aswanley. The ceremony band sounded fantastic warming up as ‘the dream team’ Bethany from Cakerella Cakeryand Amy from The Flower Shop Peterhead worked together, finishing off the exquisite cake. We hear it tasted every bit as good as it looked.
We always feel that the ceremony should be the most important part of any wedding day- everything else is really just beautiful window dressing. It was truly touching listening to Danny Murphy as he ministered so personally to the couple; I dare say their wasn’t a dry eye in the hall.
After the vows had been made and rings exchanged we headed out with Susan Renée Photography to make the most of the brief July sunshine. I’m sure Susan will agree that it was a pleasure rather than a job with the new Mr and Mrs Williamson; Smiles, love and laughter- what more could we ask for.
The day was topped off by a phenomenal performance from Franco. It was the first time we had heard them perform, but even during their warm up, you got the feeling that the guests were going to have a great night. And boy did they ever!
Josh and Rachel, it has been awesome seeing you both grow up and grow together. It was so special getting to capture the two of you as you begin this exciting new chapter, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you as man and wife. Here are your wedding film highlights x :)
