Michaela & Colin, Kinkell Byre, St Andrews - Scottish wedding photography


We had a fantastic time yesterday photographing Michaela and Colin’s wedding at Kinkell Byre, near St Andrews.

We were really excited about working at this venue, which has been converted from byres and stables at Kinkell Farm. It’s completely unique and the surroundings, with views over St Andrews Bay and the Firth of Tay, are just beautiful.

I began the day with the boys, who were on great form.

Meanwhile, Jay was with the girls, who were having fun preparing for the day ahead.

Event company Carnival Chaos had done a fantastic job dressing the venue. And Colin’s mum, auntie and helpers had created gorgeous displays, buttonholes and bouquets on a ‘country cottage’ theme, with many people contributing flowers from their gardens.

Friends and family travelled from all over the world to join Michaela and Colin on their special day.

It was just a short walk to the byre for the bride and her bridesmaids (one of whom was on specially-decorated crutches!).

Michaela’s dress was stunning and she looked incredibly beautiful. She was accompanied down the aisle by dad, Michael, while Rusalka String Quartet played Air from Handel’s Water Music.

Michaela & Colin were married in a Humanist ceremony conducted by family friend, John Bishop. The service was very personal and was both touching and humorous in equal measures!

After congratulations and champagne, we gathered the troops for some group shots.

We then took advantage of a bright (and dry!) spell to head outside.

A wonderful Italian meal, and some great speeches, followed and then it was time for the dancing to get underway. Michaela & Colin took to the floor to Damien Rice’s ‘The Blower’s Daughter’ – a really beautiful song.

Then it was time for a ceilidh, with Absent Friends ensuring that the dancefloor was kept busy.

As we were leaving, the rain let up for a dramatic view.

Michaela & Colin, thanks for being so great to work with – we loved photographing your wedding. We hope you have a fantastic time in Whistler – remember to check out Merlins and Moe Joes!
