Scottish Marquee wedding photography – Kirsty and Mike

Scottish marquee wedding photography

I grew up on a farm myself so getting to shoot a Scottish marquee wedding on a family farm is just up my street. I loved Kirsty and Mike’s wedding at home, and it all felt very familiar as I had already shot both Kirsty’s brother Allan and sister Jenny’s weddings.

On the day I arrived early so I could take some shots of Kirsty as she made her preparations. She was in good hands with her attentive bridesmaids (along with a little bubbly!) Kirsty looked amazing in her dress and looked so comfortable being a bride (she beamed a smile all day) I particularly loved the bridal party’s co-ordinated yellow umbrellas and wellies.

The ceremony was held at Inverkeilor Church, a wonderfully unique red sandstone building. Gothic in style and built at the end of the 17th century it has great views across the pretty village of Inverkeilor that lies near the spectacular North Sea coast. On arrival I caught up with Mike for a few portraits with the boys before the guests started to arrive.

After the ceremony there was time for a couple more portrait and wedding party shots before I whisked Kirsty and Mike away to nearby Lunan Bay for some images of them set against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland (I’d say the entire UK as well!)

There were also some great footage taken by the video company ‘White Balloons’ using drones! Have a look here.

We then re-joined Kirsty and Mike’s guests at Kirsty’s family farm who were all enjoying a drinks reception. There was the most fun tossing of the bouquet I’ve ever witnessed as Kirsty threw it over the farm pond, Her aim was a little amiss but the bouquet was successfully scooped up to big applause all round.

As the guests made their way into the marquee for dinner we took a few more portraits shots of Kirsty and Mike including some in a wheat field that was amongst my favourites of the day.

Now, I’ve been to hundreds of weddings but I have to say I absolutely loved the styling of this wedding and what I love best about it is that it was all Kirsty’s work (she even made the bunting) When it comes to delivering vintage chic charm, Kirsty, you most definitely take the crown. The picnic theme carried right through to the food that was all served in picnic baskets.

After a very romantic first dance (I loved the lit up ‘love’ sign in the background) live music was provided courtesy of one of my favourite wedding bands ‘Corra’, who provide traditional Scottish music and much more. The dancefloor was packed in no time. Kirsty and Mike’s guests were very much up for a party! You can’t help but smile at the dancefloor shots!

Before taking my leave I took Kirsty and Mike outside to take an image of them by the family farms beautiful garden, standing next to the pond with the marquee lit up behind them in the evening light. It was my last shot of the day and seemed the perfect one to close the story of Kirsty and Mike’s day.

A gorgeously stylish wedding full of love and laughter. Congratulations to Kirsty and Mike for getting married and creating such an amazing day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember. I hope my images will enable you to relive it again and again for many years to come.
