Kinkell Byre wedding venue , St Andrews , Scotland
(Posted on 29/10/18)
When Clare and Steven got engaged , they new instantly that Kinkell Byre was going to be their wedding venue. They booked the first available saturday ,fast forward 18 months and the day was finally here. I had of course scouted this venue out in a little bit of google research prior to the wedding day but I have to admit , the venue and location are somewhat undesribable and I was completley blown away by what I was seeing. Being Clare and Stevens Kinkell Byre wedding photographer was an absolute honour.
The Byre itself used to house cows , and the main stone venue building built in 1700s was a cow shed once on the Kinkell Farm. This beautiful farm is set on a strecth of 2 mile coastline running through the Scottish town of St Andrews The great things about this farm wedding is that its so versatlie and unique , giving you the option to completely DIY your wedding
I cannot put into words how beautiful this place is , the sand dunes are a a minutes walk away and they overlook the Scottish coast, but its inside the venue that the magic continues....
When I arrived , Clare had a wonderful team assiting her in her bridal preparations , Alex Thaddeus took to work with her loose and glamourous waves of hair while Sarah Gatherum and Natalie Ryan made everyones beautiful faces even more beautiful.
Clare wore a minimalist and sleek cut gown from Anne Priscilla paired with a beautiful pair of handmade heels by Bella Belle , and although you cannot smell her through my words , take my word for it , Tom Ford perfume is where its at!!
Amy Annand Flowers created the most beautiful bridal bouquets and centre pieces thorugh the venue and they were absolutley beautiful.
During the ceremony , the guests were taken to an area at the back of Byre , which is lit by a canopy of starlight string lights which drape down from the ceiling , its so elegant. The humanist ceremony was finished off with a hand fasting ceremony where the bride and groom have their mothers give them a tartan scraf each which is carfully folded around the couples wrists and at the end of the ceremony the two scarfs are knotted to symbolise their new marriage.
