A Scottish Love Story: Emma & Ben’s Unforgettable Wedding at Brig O Doon

Emma and ben were married a few short weeks ago in the iconic Brig O’ Doon. First of all, they had a lovely ceremony in Alloway parish church before making the short journey across to the Brig O’ Doon Hotel for the rest of their celebrations.

But let’s rewind a minute. As we nearly always do, we were sure to visit Emma at her family home as she got prepared for the day ahead. Often wedding mornings can be a little hectic but there was a definite calmness in the house as the wedding grew nearer. Wedding mornings have a habit of absolutely flying by and Emma and Ben’s were no exception, so before too long it was time for us to head along to Alloway to catch up with Ben as he welcomed all the guests.

We have photographed and filmed a fair few weddings at Brig o Doon over the years and we always love it, it’s such a fab big wedding venue. This was our first time in the Alloway Parish church though so we really enjoyed photographing in a new place. We were there in plenty of time to capture footage of all the guests arriving and you could definitely feel a buzz in the air.

The service was held by family friend, Chris, so that ensured the ceremony was kept light-hearted and personal while still being a traditional religious sermon – a really nice balance!

The weather forecast was for a nice, dry, cloudy day, however, no sooner had Emma and Ben tied the knot the temperature started to heat up and we were all treated to a proper scorcher of a day. We’ve not had the best of summers so it was a real treat to catch some rays while photographing such a fab wedding.

We often bump into couples whose weddings we’ve photographed, so it was a lovely surprise to meet Jeanna and Dean casually chilling with their wee boy whilst enjoying the day. We could easily have just grabbed a drink and enjoyed the day too but we mustn’t forget we’re there to do a job 🙂 so it was time to crack on and get the formal family photos done. So this is our second wedding where we’ve taken a large group photo of ‘The Gang’, and we’re hoping there will be many more.

Before dinner of course it was time to do the speeches and we always love hearing about a couple’s backstory and what led to their wedding day. I’m not sure the speakers are always looking forward to speaking in front of 100s of people but we always like the stories and the guests’ reactions.

A wedding just wouldn’t be a wedding without a proper shindig in the evening, and this lot sure know how to enjoy themselves, just check out everyone loving a good old ceilidh jig.

Thank you very much for inviting us along to photograph and film your wedding Emma and Ben, we loved every single moment of it 🙂
