Ballathie House Wedding – Kerry & Chris

Ballathie House Wedding photography  –  We were delighted to be asked to be the Wedding Photographers as well as Wedding Guests for Kerry and Chris at the stunning Ballathie House Hotel in Stanley, Scotland. This was an extra special Wedding for us as we have known Kerry since she was born.  Kerry was getting ready for her Wedding in a suite of rooms in the Hotel, so that is where we started off  our day.  We were greeted by Kerry and Chris’ children, full of excitement and why not! After taking some detail and accessory shots, David went off find Chris and his Groomsmen,  whilst I stayed with the girls.  Good timing! Chris had just arrived, so after capturing those moments, getting them altogether was the next job to do. It had been raining all morning but thankfully it had now stopped. David took a few pictures of the men outside Ballathie before they went inside to carry out their duties.Ballathie House wedding Scotland

Meanwhile, the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls were getting dressed, then they assisted Kerry as she got into her Wedding Dress. Kerry looked stunning! A few pictures followed before it was time for the Civil Ceremony.  The Bridesmaids and Flowergirls led the way into the room where the Ceremony was to be held.

On a roll, with the agreement of Kerry and Chris, we continued with other pictures especially as the weather was holding up and we had light! A  couple of  pictures with Kerry and Chris with the children walking in the grounds with afternoon sun was a bonus! With these pictures achieved, Kerry and Chris had a short time to enjoy the Drinks Reception, whilst we caught up on some informal pictures..

The River Tay provided a wonderful backdrop which we used as well as making full use of the trees and the fallen autumn leaves.  Wonderful colours, together with the changing colours in the sky. As the mist came down Chris wanted a picture with all the men in Kilts and a short while later it was time for the cake photographer Perth ScotlandThen the Wedding Guests took their places for the speeches before the Wedding Breakfast.  After coverage of the Speeches, we finally became ‘Guests’ as well!  Later, once the Band were set up, the evening celebrations began.  Kerrry and Chris’ evening Guests arrived, and soon it was time for  the First Dance.  A little while later the Ceilidh began, the dance floor was full! After capturing some dancing pictures, we put our cameras down and joined the party! A wonderful Ballathie House Wedding!
