I love a wedding with a difference and Kim and Alan’s big day proved just that!
The happy couple were married on Saturday 3rd September in a beautiful ceremony in Kilfennan Presbyterian church, before holding their reception at Killaloo Orange Hall.
The day started with lots of little unconventional twists which continued throughout to offer guests a truly memorable experience. The bridal preparations took place in Kim’s childhood home, where she and her bridesmaid Louise, got ready for the big day ahead. The relaxed vibes were great for getting some detail shots, and we even had time to capture photos of Kim with Audrey the bear! I loved the girls’ carefree, effortlessness, which was perfectly evoked in photos.
The wedding party definitely arrived in style in quirky VW campervans, which also transported them to Alan’s dad’s house (who was his best man) for some coffee and photos, of course. Following this, there was time for a quick pint in Knob’s Bar, before they hopped onto the back of a vintage tractor, with Alan’s bright socks on display. The drive down to Killaloo Orange Hall was led by Alan’s pipe band, who had also stood as guard of honour outside the church.
Hours of hard work and love had gone into decorating the hall, which looked beautiful! Kim had been crocheting table decorations for the last year and a half and her mum had spent almost as long knitting the table doilies, which served as centre pieces. The finishing touches came together perfectly and were well received by guests. And the twists didn’t stop there. The delicious dinner was served outside from Pyke & Pommes’ van, where guests ate from takeaway containers and enjoyed every second of it!
Before the first dance, I stole the newlyweds away for a few moments together for some romantic twilight photos to mark the start of their married life together.
A couple who are definitely meant to be together, I wish Kim and Alan a lifetime of happiness and I’m thrilled to have captured their special day.
