Top 10 Wedding Photos of 2017

It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of The Coach House's very first season as a wedding venue!


We've been absolutely blown away by our popularity, but more importantly the incredible memories and weekends that have been created here. Week after week we've witnessed incredible weddings and memories being created in our little patch of East Lothian. We really wanted to share with everyone the amazing moments that we've been so privileged to witness and that these beautiful couples will remember forever. I've included the links to all the websites, Facebook and Instagram of the photographers featured in our top 10 below every photo.

Couple kissing during their Colstoun Wedding in East Lothian photo property of Solen Photography

Photographer: Solen Photography - FB - Insta - Website


Why do we like this photo? Solen is a master of catching the light and getting beautiful sun flares. Solen has caught a really loving moment between a newly married couple. Taken on the West Lawn at Colstoun which measures about 200m x 100m Solen has still managed to make the photograph seem intimate.

Why do we like this photo? Although the bridge photo is a regular shot at Colstoun, Maclaurin Weddings has taken a beautiful shot at the right time of year. Autumnal leaves, framing the newly married couple with light just turning golden. Perfect timing and a perfect photo to be treasured forever.

Scottish Country House Wedding, a beautiful couple sitting in the library at Colstoun East Lothian. photo property of Caro Weiss Photography

Photographer: Caro Weiss - FB - Insta - Website


Why do we like this photo? Couple photos taken in the library isn't a normal occurrence at Colstoun. We had incredibly Scottish weather that day, so the initiative was taken to move the photographs inside, and the result was this beautiful photo. Soft light of the cloudy day outside and the rich and vibrant tones of the library combined with the skill of Caro made one of our favorite photos of 2017.

East Lothian Wedding at Colstoun with a beautiful couple kissing under a tree, photo property of Anna Urban Wedding Photography

Photographer: Anna Urban Wedding Photography - FB - Insta - Website

Why do we like this photo? There were a number of lucky couples who had Anna Urban Wedding Photography shoot their wedding this year. We probably could have chosen 100 photographs just from her that we loved. This photograph is perfectly golden and wonderfully intimate, taken under the trees on the West Lawn with the glass house in the background.

Barn Wedding Scotland. Hppily Married couple standing holding hands and dancing in an East Lothian Wedding barn. photo property of Fiona Higgins Photography

Photographer: Fiona Higgins Photography - FB - Insta - Website

Why do we like this photo? This photograph is one of the most beautiful shots we've ever seen, we particularly love that it is in The Coach House, but more than that we love the fact that despite having nearly 100 people around the viewers eyes are drawn right in to the beautiful couple. The Coach House can hold 150 people but you wouldn't be surprised if at that moment it felt like they were the only ones in the room.

Why do we like this photo? Timing is everything. This photo is the Colstoun number one wedding photo of 2017, and it doesn't even include a bride! Perfect timing and ABSOLUTELY adorable.
