Antonia and Pete's wedding photography at Western House Hotel, Ayr

30th August 2019

It was hands down going to be the hottest day of the year for Antonia and Pete's wedding at St Mary's Church in Glasgow and then onto the Western House Hotel in Ayr.

The day started off at Antonia's parents house where all the hair and make up was being done by Laura Gray Hair and Beauty Bridal. I loved Antonia's hair which was down and suited her dress perfectly.

I headed to the church where all the guys arrived. Pete was in a suit and the rest of the best men and ushers were in kilts. I loved this look, it really worked. 

Antonia arrived in the car with her Mum and the bridesmaids in a VW camper van. I loved the bridesmaids colour of dresses, they were perfect.

It was time for the ceremony which was beautiful. I got some lovely confetti shots outside and then all the guests headed down to Ayr.

On the way down I noted that the temperature was 29 degrees, it was hot! Lucky though Western House hotel had beautiful grounds with mature trees which provided the much needed shade. There was The Juicy T's entertaining the guest with their fantastic music in the band stand while everyone sipped Champagne in the sun. 

I got most of the pictures in the tree lined avenue of the hotel. All the guests were outside enjoying the lovely weather. 

It was then time for the speeches. Antonia's Mum did a lovely speech and Pete had the pleasure of two best men doing a speech about him. Luckily they were kind and the speeches were great.

As Antonia is from Italian heritage, during the meal the guests got up and started doing the conga  to the music from the band while waving their napkins above their head. It was great to see and photograph. A real family tradition!

After the meal I got the Bride and Groom outside for some more pictures with the lovely early evening light. The hotel had a beautiful little bridge over a pond which I took advantage of. All the evening guests arrived and everyone was sitting outside enjoying the beautiful evening.

Inside everyone went through for the first dance. It was great as the dance floor was full!

What a fantastic day it was from start to finish.
