As you can see Campbeltown has some great venues for your Wedding Ceremony and reception and some of the venues can be used for the Ceremony also.

One thing I see becoming more popular and I think it is a fantastic idea is the Bride and Groom staying at a hotel, country house or a B&B the night before for some refreshments but also for their preparation on the big day.

This is fantastic in terms of photography as these locations generally have more space and natural light which for us photographers is just perfect and will really help the images for your wedding album.

All the main hotels in the town are more than willing to rent out a room or two for this but I have also done some Wedding Prep in rented houses, which again offer plenty of space and good lighting as well as lots if space, so this is something you may wish to consider.

Again, from the photography perspective having the space and natural light really helps the images a lot. Not only does it help the photography but it also helps the hairdresser and make-up artist, and in general it creates a nice atmosphere when there is a bit more space, more fresh air and it is brighter.

Private Shoot

One element of the wedding day that I push hard on is the Private Shoot as this is the time where I can capture some truly amazing images, which can add the wow factor to your album.

Given the location of Campbeltown, there are many excellent locations that we can go to and they are all within 10 minutes drive at most.

With its scenic location and natural beauty it makes for a charming and picturesque wedding destination.

Situated in Argyll and Bute, Campbeltown offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes, including the nearby beaches of Machrihanish.

The pristine beaches provide a stunning backdrop for formal wedding photos, capturing the beauty of the area. Whether it’s exchanging vows by the turquoise waters or amidst the lush greenery, Campbeltown offers a serene and idyllic setting for couples to begin their journey of love and commitment.

Most people will choose to go to the beach, which is absolutely fine whereas some want an image looking out towards Davaar Island, again that is fine, this is the Bride and Grooms choice and I am happy to facilitate that.

Sometimes, however, things don’t always go to plan, so having a plan B ready is vital, and again there are plenty of alternative locations in and around Campbeltown to capture those precious images.
