The Cow Shed Crail Wedding with Andy and Amy

The Cow Shed in Crail is a wedding venue I’ve been counting down the days to visiting ever since Amy and Andy booked it last year… you’ll soon see why!  I had actually already taken wedding photos of Amy about 7 years ago (not for a real wedding, she modelled for some wedding photos at her Mum’s work when she was a teenager) so I was really happy when she booked me for her real wedding to Andy (the same tall boy she was going out with when we first met!).The day started off with some bridal prep photos at Amy and Andy’s house, where the girl’s were having their hair and make up done.There was a wee bit of emotion when Amy came downstairs in her beautiful wedding dress!  I think Lilly approved of her Mum’s dress choice too 🙂Meanwhile my second Photographer Lynne was with Andy and his Groomsmen over at his family’s farm before they all headed to the Cow Shed…The bridesmaids arrived in style in this classic VW Camper-van.  I absolutely loved these sequin dresses, they look great in the photos….The Cow Shed is a DIY venue and Amy and Andy had decorated absolutely every corner with cosy blankets, home made jam favours, chalkboard signs, lighting and even a kid’s tent to keep the little ones amused during the day.  Andy is a fishmonger so I especially liked this sign haha….The Camper-van came back with Amy and her Dad and it was time to get married!  Lilly and her favourite bunny were first to enter the ceremony room….First look *gulp*It was a tight fit at the front of the room but I was able to peek between the best men to catch some smiley faces from the families 🙂Andy and Amy had a Humanist ceremony with a few reading and a bit of knot tying,  this was their first kiss as Mr & Mrs…I’d guess by their faces they are all happy to be married 🙂A bit of Confetti throwing and photos outside followed the ceremony!The Cow Shed is surrounded by fields and Amy was up for swapping her Jimmy Choo’s for wellies for the photos…After the photos it was time to eat!  The marquee had just as much amazing decor as the rest of the venue with another VW camper-van as a bar amongst the other details…There was just a small matter of getting the kids off the bouncy castle first…Some lovely speeches before the meal and evening guests arrived.  Soon it was time for the party to start!Amy and Andy were the second cutest couple on the dance-floor that night!Everyone was up giving the ceilidh dancing a go when I left and it was all going well!Congratulations Amy and Andy xxx

 

 

Forbes of Kingennie wedding photography with Ryan and Karla

Karla and Ryan had a Forbes of Kingennie wedding a few weeks ago.  The day started with some bridal prep photography in one of the Lodges…. The men were in a nearby lodge so I popped in to take a few photos on the way to the ceremony building….  As you can see it was a wet day at Forbes of Kingennie! Karla’s bridesmaids helped get her ready to go while Ryan and his groomsmen welcomed the guests into the ceremony room… The helpful staff were on hand with brollies to help Karla and her bridesmaids stay dry!  I love when couples let their kids get involved in the ceremony 🙂  They had a Humanist Ceremony conducted by Gary Smith…  The windy, wild rain wasn’t going anywhere so we opted for photos in the cosy shelter of the indoors!  Speeches were held before dinner…  Once the evening guests arrived and the band were ready, I set up some lighting for the first dances….Conrgatulations to all three of you! <3

“Karen did our wedding pictures for us and to say we are delighted is an understatement. We have a three year old son so knew that posing for any length of time would be a challenge and as a result we requested photos that captured the feeling of our day. We are in love with our pictures that show laughter and are honest. Thank you Karen xxx”
