In 2016, before she was actually engaged, while I was filming John’s sister, Linzi’s wedding, Sarah asked me if I would film her wedding. It was a safe presumption and three years later I was pitching up to the stunning Kinnettles Castle to complete the hat trick of Milton weddings.
Our entire company was founded on the basis of being asked, on the back of very little evidence of ability, to film John’s sister, Lucy’s, wedding in 2015. I remember the day like it was yesterday, running about carrying every bit of kit I could, like a headless chicken. Now, I’m more experienced, I carry less kit, I have more time on the ball, so to speak. But that was the moment which kicked it all off. It was when I first met John & Sarah too.
Then, as mentioned above, there was the eldest Milton, Linzi’s, wedding in Cyprus, in 2016. Three years later, I was travelling to Kinnettles Castle to film the final wedding in the trilogy. And what a wedding it was.
It also goes to show that no two weddings are the same. The weather was maybe a bit typically Scottish, but Kinnettles Castle itself has a stunning space, and a unique setting.
Sarah and her bridesmaids looked as stunning as you’d expect. The party started long before the ceremony. Dancing was a constant feature of the day. The speeches were record breaking. It was a classic Milton wedding.
It was an absolute blast working with Sam Brill (and Ali) whose work I have known about long before I ever picked up a camera (to film) myself. He’s an absolute legend of a bloke and the two of them were just the best company for a day of shooting.
The Kinnettles Castle staff and planner Marlene were really good for the couple as well, really making the day run smoothly for them.
Suffice to say, the whole day was brilliant, and so great to see all the Uncle Colins (every Uncle in Aberdeenshire appears to be called Colin) and their signature dance moves again.
