Fife Culross Blog Wedding

This was the second of three consecutive weddings in October this year and one I’ve been looking forward to for some time. Kristiane & Cameron, a young couple crazy about each other and madly in love with one another are getting married at a venue where I’ve always wanted to photograph!

They got married at The Den in Culross, Fife. A beautiful new barn wedding venue which I think has got all wedding photographers excited; we love a new venue. The place is huge! So, if you’re looking for a spacious barn wedding venue, then look no further. This place has it all!

The day started with bridal preparation photographs at the cottage, just a couple of minutes away by foot on the grounds where Kristiane and her girls were getting ready. Some detailed photos are taken of the dress and other details like jewelry, flowers, shoes as well as lots of candids of the bridal party.

The highlight for me was an emotional moment between Kristiane and her grandmother exchanging gifts and hugs. It clearly meant a lot to Kristaine that her gran was there to witness her happiest day.

Once everyone was dressed, I took individual and group photos of all the bridal party and immediate family. This was particularly challenging time wise as we had 14 bridesmaids to photograph! A record for me but we managed it in good time.

I made my way up to The Den Courtyard for some photos of the groom and groomsmen. Cameron was rather relaxed with his boys so I photographed some natural shots as well as individual photos.

The Wedding Ceremony at The Den Byre

The wedding ceremony was conducted by Maryann in the Byre area of the wedding venue. A cozy indoor space which houses space for the ceremony and drinks reception.

The ceremony was an emotional one with happy tears and laughter shared and memories of loved ones that couldn’t be there. A traditional hand fast was held as well. In the reception pictures notice the pumpkins dotted about the place as the wedding had a bit of a Halloween theme going on.

Weather was against us so we delayed the big group photo until a bit later on in the day when we had a break in the heavens. The Courtyard makes for a great space to get the group photo from above.

The Reception at The Den, Culross – Barn

The barn is huge! It has to be seen to believe it. Yet, so warm and inviting and decorated so beautifully. The couple had a huge number of guests so it filled up the space well. The interior also works well for group photos which is what we had to resort to due to the poor weather. Notice more pumpkins!

The evening continued on with speeches, followed by some wonderful food and music, but that wasn’t all. Kristiane had a surprise for everyone. She is a big Taylor Swift fan and had a little mash up dance to entertain everyone with. This was a joy to photograph as she and her dancers put a little show on for everyone to enjoy. It was clear everyone was having fun!
