John and Chloe were married at Kirkcowan Church and held their reception at the beautiful Old Place of Mochrum. Churches, landrovers, castles, trumpets, bagpipes and marquees, their wedding had it all.
The day started off with photographs of the bride at the family farm in Wigtownshire where Chloe and her bridesmaids were taking it in turns to have hair and makeup, it was a great opportunity to catch up and to discuss plans for the day ahead. The weather looked promising and the locations for the wedding ceremony and reception were both local.
I caught up with the groom, John at Kirkcowan Church and I took some photographs of his groomsmen prior to the arrival of the guests. The whole village turned out to spectate and to wish them both well.
Chloe was right on time and she arrived in style in a shiny landrover defender, the only fitting way to travel for a country girl and a budding shepherdess. After a lovely ceremony conducted by Rev. Boyle we emerged into glorious sunshine. After taking some photographs outside the church we headed off towards the reception venue, the Old Place of Mochrum.
The Old Place of Mochrum was built in 1385 and is an estate comprising of 16,500 acres of open moorland, lochs and fields and is a fabulous location to have a wedding reception.
All in all the day was perfect, right down to the last detail. Both Chloe and John were amazing and it was a pleasure to take their photographs. Here are a few images from their day…
