STIRLING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
It felt amazing to be a part of Kayleigh and Jimmy’s big day. It’s fantastic to go to a venue that I haven’t been to before. The Stirling County Rugby Club is a huge venue and was perfect for a big, relaxed wedding.
Kayleigh and Jimmy got together after meeting at a couple of Young Farmers dances and then Kayleigh started to work on Jimmy’s Dad’s farm. They fell in love and now live and work together on their own farm.
WEDDING PREPS IN STIRLINGSHIRE
My morning started off as a bit of an adventure. Kayleigh and Jimmy’s farm is high up on a remote hill above Doune. Up near the wind farm surrounded by their sheep. I was very glad to be going in convoy with the Mother of the Groom and the florist. Nearly three miles up a single track road, I felt like a rally driver. The farmhouse is amazing but there wasn’t any farming going on last Saturday morning. Kayleigh, who I’d imagine lives most of her life in jeans and wellies, was being transformed in to a very glamorous bride. Her dress was stunning…. high necked, backless, in beautiful lace…sexy and elegant at the same time.
It was great spending the morning with Kayleigh and her family. It helps me to blend in, and later in the day everyone is totally used to me being there.
STIRLING RUGBY CLUB WEDDING RECEPTION
The rugby club is a perfect wedding venue for a big famers wedding.
The ceremony was in the sports hall which was turned into a marquee for the day. In the shadow of The Wallace Monument this was great wedding venue for a big party.
Their families were all there to see them married and some had travelled from France to sample a Scottish wedding.
Unusually for this summer the weather was fantastic. Blue skies all day and it was warm. Perfect wedding day weather!
We took a quick trip to Bride of Alan Gardens for some romantic bride and groom portraits before heading back to join the party.
After a delicious meal of lamb that Kayleigh and Jimmy had specially bred for their wedding there was a ceilidh, Kayleigh’s ceilidh!
The dance floor was packed and what’s more everyone seemed to know all the traditional Scottish dances.
I had a fantastic time and you can see from the photos how much everyone enjoyed themselves. Being a documentary wedding photographer gives me the freedom to tell the real story of their wedding day without traditional posed photographs.
If you’re planning your own wedding and don’t want to pose for photos on your wedding day then I’d love to hear from you.
