Rain what rain? This did not stop this beautiful springtime wedding at Barony Castle being an amazingly fun day.
As mentioned above it rained all day but this did not prevent us from getting those formal and couples session photos.
Kelly and Alan were such troopers and did not let anything bother them as they kept on with the happiness and joy of the day. Kelly was also not precious about dirtying her dress which meant we could get those shots without having to worry about the bride wanting to keep her dress pristine. GIRLS, it’s never ever going to stay pristine! You will have to get it cleaned no matter if you stay inside all day. Now, we won’t be having your dress trailing through muck so don’t worry as we try our best to keep it clean as possible for your guests to admire.
We absolutely loved just how close-knit this wedding was in terms of family and friends. Their daughter Charlie was such a centre point of the day which always pulls at my heartstrings.
Also, may I bring special attention to how amazing these two looked? I mean Alan looked so incredibly smart in his kilt and Kelly looked so jaw-droppingly beautiful in her beautiful wedding gown from Ivory Pinks. The flowers were classic wrapped in Kelly’s family tartan. Morris did such an amazing job officiating the wedding! Hope to work with him again in the near future. It was also lovely to see their piper again as we have worked with her in the past. Last but not least the evening ended with entertainment by the amazing Franco whom we highly recommend.
Thanks so much for having us along on the day. You along with your amazing family (whom we have met at previous weddings! LOVE that) took us in like we were a part of it. It took us ages to say our goodbyes…which is a sign of a most awesome wedding.
I shall leave you with this slideshow and a selection of photos below to represent the day.
Also further down we have included some trusty tips on what to do if it rains on your big day!
It’s raining. Should it ruin your day or your photos? Never!
This is where making sure you invest in your photographer as they will know what to do and how to handle it.
In this instance, we had loads of brollies and volunteers to keep everyone dry while we placed everyone in the shot. Then after a countdown of 3 the umbrella’s were pulled away while I snapped a few shots (literally seconds) then they were put back on top of everyone. It worked a treat! Thanks to Alan’s dad who was a great help (pictured above).
So what about the couples session?
We looked for some sheltered spots to take some photos. We also looked at the ground. Why? for dry patches, meaning there was coverage from the rain by the trees allowing us to shoot as we normally would on a day with no rain. The light and the grounds wer beautiful so we wanted to take advantage of it.
Have a look at other weddings which were shot in the rain.
