Mel & Craig
Faklkand Estate and Balgeddie House Hotel
Melanie started the day getting ready at the lovely Balgeddie House Hotel in Glenrothes, the morning was filled with laughter, occasional death threats from the brides mum “if you take my photo again, I swear that ……..” and the realisation that it’s now T minus 60 mins until the ceremony at Falkland Estate.
The ceremony took place outdoors, in the rustic and beautiful outdoor chapel which was lovely. The ceremony included Mel & Craig’s four legged child and simply stole the show (sorry Mel & Craig). It was a romantic occasion, full of lots of laughter.
After the ceremony, we went into the estate for the family and B&G photos, which is such a great time for the newly married couple to have some time to let it sink in, and I got some stunning photos in the rolling fields with the majestic chapel in the background. The weather at this wedding was all sunshine and blue skies, it was a beautiful day.
After the amazing outdoor wedding ceremony which had nice scottish weather (nae rain or wind) – thank you to the weather gods !
We headed to Balgeddie House Hotel where the reception and evening festivities were taking place, this allowed Mel & Craig time to mingle and have some down time with their friends and family before we moved out to the gardens for some more B&G images. The venue is perfect for weddings because it’s so cosy and relaxed, and it’s got such a friendly vibe, especially in the hotel bar and recception area when the room is full of people having a great party.
After the speeches, everyone retired to the hotel bar for a short period and got the party going. Once the evening guests arrived, Mel & Craig stepped up to the dance floor, cut the cake (without any knife related accidents) and got straight on the dancefloor, and the dancefloor was packed all evening.
Mel & Craig even had a special four legged member of the family arrive and soon everyone was flocking round the gorgeous doggy and abandoned Mel & Craig (quite rightly so !).
If you are looking for a unique venue to host your wedding then Falkland Estate’s designed landscape is the perfect location.
As well as offering an incredible backdrop to your wedding photos, there are many idyllic locations where your ceremony can be held, including the picturesque roofless Memorial Chapel, our Woodland Garden, a circle of ancient trees or standing by a gentle burn. The choice is yours.
