When a wedding has a Scottish influence there are two certainties you can count on. One, that a lot of alcohol will be consumed and two, as a result it will be rowdy. I guessed it would be a fun wedding at Kingscote Barn this weekend, and certainly wasn’t disappointed. Kelly and her seven bridesmaids started the day early at Will’s cottage; beautifying clearly takes time when you have this many girls to preen. Meanwhile the guys kept it simple and just started drinking early! The full house for bridal preps meant there was never a dull moment, not least with Natalie and also Kelly’s mum to hand! In fact, it wasn’t just the boys drinking, the ladies too had their fair share of Champagne :-) After a flurry of activity, Kelly appeared to a rapturous collection of bridesmaids waiting at the base of the stair case. Gifts were given out, a few tears shared, and then a few more during the car journey to the barn.
From there on in, the formalities took place, with a civil ceremony in the main barn, followed by reception drinks on the terrace. It was then time for a few group photos…..which wasn’t quite as problematic as I’d expected. There was brief interlude however to sit on the wedding car :-) I know…SITTING on the wedding car (not in it, but ON IT). It must be a Scottish thing?!
The iPads were a plenty throughout the day, arms were up in the air, and guests sung & chanted at every opportunity. If you weren’t jolly at this wedding you weren’t drinking enough…or forgot to bring your hip flask. T’was a cracking day, which hopefully you’ll pick up from the photos. What a fun wedding at Kingscote Barn this was.
I get the impression they may have felt my presence! It’s hard applying make-up whilst smiling eh!?
“Wow, I can feel the baby kicking”…..
Top tip for the day. If your bridesmaid dresses become static, simply spray with hair spray. Well I never knew that.
Over at Kingscote Barn order of the day was bring your own tankard and be jolly.
“Okay, no tears….let’s do jazz hands, they brighten anyones day”.
The wedding was a very serious event for Kellys Dad.
“Must not cry, MUST NOT CRY”
I have no idea what this is about.
Love the addition from the girl here.
Kelly’s mum also took the day very seriously ;-)
Sometimes I just let the groups take care of themselves. On this occasion I suggested the bench & a couple of chairs. The composition was all their own doing……and you know what…it’s ACE. Even I wouldn’t think to have a bridesmaid sat on the grooms knee – good work Graham.
Did I mention the wedding car. This was the ‘light’ version. Later the rest of the bridal party joined in too! Notice how Graham protects his modesty. Although this was a little late after his Mother-In-Law already caught sight of the crown jewels.
Inside Kingscote Barn set up for the wedding breakfast with the fantastic twinkly light canopy overhead.
Graham and I thought it was a good plan to cut the wedding cake outside…..so I could take this photo below :-) Nice.
