A Colourful Loch Lomond Wedding with an outdoor Humanist ceremony, a Vintage Dress and DIY touches

Today I am thrilled to share this fantastic and colourful Loch Lomond Wedding with an outdoor Humanist ceremony, a Vintage Dress and DIY touches.

Images of the day were captured by Silver Photography at The Cruin, Loch Lomond.

Trevor of Silver Photography shares his recollections of the day,

 

“Everyone has their own ideas about how they want their wedding day to be.”

“Some people like a nice simple, low key, wedding and others, like Laura, have an extravagant vision for their day that must surely have demanded a huge amount of time and effort to organise.”

“Even a ‘normal’ wedding (if there is such a thing) takes hours of planning and preparation – I can’t imagine how many hours Kevin and Laura put into theirs!”

“From a photographic point it was perfect. Seldom do all the elements come together so well – a beautiful day with sunshine and (very) warm temperatures, a spectacular venue with amazing views, seemingly endless little embellishments dotted about the place and a bride and groom who weren’t afraid to show how much they were in love.”

“Laura and her bridesmaids prepared themselves at Auchendennan farm cottages, just opposite the Cruin on the shores of Loch Lomond.”

“Not content with simply driving the ¼ mile distance to the ceremony they had chartered a lovely boat, the Beau Jangles, which set sail from the pier at Loch Lomond Shores, 3 miles away.”

“Because Laura had quite a large wedding party the boat did two, very fast, runs to the venue.”

“I dropped the bridesmaids off in my car and raced the boat back to the Cruin, only just making it in time.”

“A short while later Laura arrived, steering the boat herself, and the outdoor humanist ceremony, conducted by Melanie Leckie, began.”

“Laura and Kevin had used about 23 miles of bunting and ribbon to transform a patio with a nice view into a beautifully colourful outside area for their ceremony.”

“They had even made an archway which they stood in front of for their ceremony.”

The ribbons on the backs of the chairs served a purpose later on – each guest was to take one and write on it a wish, which they then tied to the branches of a little tree.”

“Given that people were writing their wishes after a considerable amount of alcohol there were one or two un-bloggable ribbons hanging there in amongst the lovely messages…”

“In keeping with the laid-back vibe the ceremony was lovely and I was kept on my toes by the myriad of children scurrying back and forth.”

“It culminated in what is perhaps the most photogenic first-kiss I’d ever seen – no peck-on-the-cheek stuff for this newly married couple.”

“During the very hot afternoon everyone milled about, we did a few little family pictures and, in spite of Kevin’s pre-wedding determination not to do any posed pictures, once he saw the pier there was no stopping him and we took several shots there.”

“Unusually, the strawberry and cream sponge wedding cake, made by Laura’s sister-in-law Kath Davidson, was cut a short time after the ceremony and then shared out before dinner.”

“I was forced to sample a piece and, I have to say, it was very tasty indeed, so I had another bit.”

“Other memorable parts of the day was the joint three best-men’s speech (even though one of the men was Kevin’s sister) which culminated in a remarkably accurate rendition of Vogue by Madonna, minus the fancy underwear.”

“Kevin is in a band called the Levee Strollers and joined them during the changeover period for a mini-gig before launching into the first dance in the room next door”
