GILLIAN + BRIAN’S GORGEOUS AYRSHIRE WEDDING AT HARELAW FARM
Gillian and Brian invited us along to photograph and film their big day at Harelaw farm at the start of June. It’s safe to say we were excited to capture the day, they’re such a lovely couple and the farm is an ideal venue for a chilled out wedding.
We went along to the farmhouse in the morning to capture the build-up to the big day as Gillian and her bridesmaids readied themselves for the day ahead. The whole day was held at Harelaw farm so it meant there was a really relaxed atmosphere right from the beginning of the day.
Soon enough Brian arrived in his surprise limo to welcome all of their guests to the farm and there was even time for a quick beverage before the ceremony. Time flies on a wedding day and before we knew it Gillian was walking down the aisle with her dad to meet an eager Brian. Humanist ceremonies always allow for a great deal of personalisation and Brian and Gillian had opted for a couple of fab Scottish traditions; a hand-fasting and drinking from the quaich.
There was plenty of time for canopies in the sunshine before getting everyone together for some group photos. Then possibly one of the highlights of the day was heading round the front to pet the lambs and big Heelan coos. Check out the video for one of them trying to much Brian’s buttonhole flower 🙂
Speeches always provide great entertainment and seeing Brian’s brother gift him with the chute he’d always dreamed of definitely gave everyone a good laugh.
Full-on party mode isn’t allowed quite yet, but at least Gillian and Brian were able to share a traditional first dance before enjoying the rest of the evening mingling with their friends and family. Thanks so much for having us along guys, it was an absolute pleasure to photograph and film your wedding day!
