Real Weddings at Forbes of Kingennie: Gemma and Kevin’s waterside wedding

Gemma and Kevin chose the stunning location of Forbes of Kingennie Country Resort for their beautiful, intimate wedding ceremony¬†in April 2016 and were joined by more family and friends to party with them at night. When I first met them they told me that they wanted only a few posed photos and that it was important to them to have their day photographed naturally. I knew we’d work perfectly together.

The big day

Waking up on the day there was snow on the ground and it really was a day of all seasons. Gemma was a little worried but thankfully the snow soon cleared.

When I arrived at Gemma’s parents’ house the hair and makeup were in full swing and she was enjoying the morning with her friends and a wee glass of bubbly. Kevin was already at the venue so after taking a few photos of the girls I went through to Forbes of Kingennie to meet Kevin and wait for his beautiful bride to arrive.

Gemma and Kevin exchanged vows in a touching ceremony by Humanist Celebrant Brenda Reid. The ceremony included the tying of the knot which Brenda made sure matched Gemma’s dress.

Gemma, Kevin and I left their wedding guests to some lovely canapes and drinks and we went over to use the gorgeous Leannan Boathouse for a few natural photos. Such a stunning spot looking over the pond.

They then joined their guests for the speeches. There was a lot of tears of laughter in the room, especially with Kevin’s best man’s speech.

I left the wedding party to enjoy their meal and then just like magic, before the evening guests arrived, the rain disappeared and I suggested we should go outside to make the most of the gorgeous evening light. How lovely for a wee rainbow to appear right at that very moment!

Once their evening guests arrived they all partied the night away with wedding band Franco.
