Styled shoot at Culdees Castle Estate with an opulent wintry feel

The Perthshire venue hosted a crack team of local suppliers, who came together to create a styled shoot that’s stuffed full of inspo for your winter wedding

An all-female group of star suppliers gathered at Culdees Castle Estate recently, and the resulting photoshoot proves the power of teamwork. “It was a fantastic team-building exercise and it just shows how easy it is to gather local wedding vendors to form a fantastic package for prospective couples,” shares the venue’s Tracey Horton. With all involved coming from within a 10-mile radius of Culdees, it’s left us thinking there must be something in the water in Perthshire.

If you think the venue sounds familiar, you’re probably right: Culdees Castle has been featured in Channel 4’s new series Renovation Nation, which documented the castle’s ongoing restoration process. With some spaces already totally transformed and proving a big hit with prospective couples (we’re particularly fond of the intimate, glass-roofed courtyard), this venue is definitely one to watch.
