– Kimmy and Patrick’s’s Kilchurn Castle Elopement Photographer –

Kimmy and Patrick came to Scotland for the vows renewal to celebrate their marriage. And having their closest family together with them made that day even more special. Especially, that both families live in different parts of the world, thousands of miles apart. Kimmy’s parents traveled from Hong Kong, Kimmy’s sister with her family from London and their dear friend from Singapore. And all Patrick’s family traveled all the way from the United States.
It was the first time they all get to meet each other.

The decision of eloping to Kilchurn Castle seemed like the right choice and met with Kimmy and Patrick’s approval without a flick. Framed photo of Kilchurn Castle they have on the wall was taken by Patrick’s parents at the time they were visiting Scotland many years ago. And this time, they could all be here together to bring memories back and to create new memorable moments.

But before we all headed for the ceremony to Kilchurn Castle, the getting ready part took place at New Castle Lachlan, nearby Loch Fyne. The entire morning was filled with traditional Chinese rituals. Starting with the couple having their hair brushed using a wooden comb, followed by Patrick’s gate crushing and tea ceremony when they both served tea to their families.

Also, some of the traditional Celtic wedding rituals were incorporated to the ceremony later that day. One of them was the Oathing Stone tradition when Kimmy and Patrick exchange their vows while holding the Oathing Stone. It is believed that holding the stone during the reading of the vows casts them into the stone which serves as a mediator between the couple, the ancestors and the secret place where the stone was found.
The stone they were using was from Flores Island in Indonesia – a very special place to Kimmy. When they finally made a journey together they found that stone on a blue stone beach.

It was an amazing day, filled with lots of beautiful and unforgettable stories.
Enjoy watching the photo story and don’t forget to watch a film I made that day as well. Stay tuned cause it’s coming soon and it’ll be available below!
