kiara & john

We are so lucky. Kiara got in touch with me back in January and asked if I would be willing to travel to Scotland for their wedding? Errrrr.... hell yeah! They then booked the most gorgeous venue, Crear located in Argyll and I swear I have never seen such beautiful scenery in my life... it was absolutely breathtaking... and we honestly had the best weekend.
The morning of the wedding I arrived at Kiara's cottage and her and her family laughed and drank champagne whilst Kiara got into her custom made dress and Vivienne Westwood shoes. John then arrived and had quite an emotional first look with us all there which I thought was an amazing idea... everyone was just beaming smiling...
We then headed down the road for an epic photo session on the loch.... oh the colours were just soooo beautiful and these two just rocked it! We then headed back to Crear to welcome guests before heading in to the main room for the ceremony.
The ceremony was beautiful and ended with the most fantastic round of applause and quite a few tears too and then a hearty meal (which included me tasting haggis for the very first time) was served, along with some mighty fine speeches!
The evening was finished off with the Photo Booth and of course... a good old ceilidh! Now the funny thing is... most weddings that have ceilidh's have at least half an hour of tuition before everyone does the dance... nope, not in Scotland... they all just dive right in!! :)
Coupled with the wedding and the fact that we saw two stags and a massive bird of prey right infront of a car... we were in our absolute element that weekend. We love Kiara and John and we also love Scotland.
I also want to say a huge, huge thank you to the staff at Crear, especially Carole and her husband for making us feel so welcome and for the delicious food... certainly a venue to have a look at if you're thinking of getting married...
