Loch Ken Wedding | Ashton & Bobby
Ashton & Bobby wanted a very relaxed and intimate wedding, that’s why they chose a Lock Ken Wedding at the Galloway Activity Centre. Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Galloway hills and right on the water’s edge of the Loch Ken, approx 40 mins from Dumfries with nothing around for miles it truly is a secret secluded wedding venue!
Ashton chose to get ready at home with her family, bridal party and cute flower girl labrador. An adorable moment was when Ashtons Dad got to see her for the first time in the dress. With such a beautiful garden, it was definitely the ideal location. The ceremony was held inside due to the torrential rain that came down, but right after the service, it dried up which let us get outside for pictures in what is a beautiful part of the country. We headed into the hills for their couples shoot, with the Barron moorland between their toes, stunning vista looking across Loch Ken and the Galloways hills there was no better place to be.
The evening reception was held in the converted boat shed, complete with hay bay seating and disco provided by RKDJ it was a great night. On the way home about 5 minutes after leaving and saying my goodbye to the couple I notice a strange ball in the sky, oh yes that will be the sun. Blaring through the clouds in the perfect golden hour. I immediately turn the car around as fast as I can and head back to the venue searching for the couple. I explain golden hour and your Loch Ken Wedding is happening right now so if you would love some fantastic sunset shots we need to go now. The couple replied: ‘Absolutely let’s do this!’ We spend the next 10 minutes moving with the light trying to capture all the area, and as you’ll see from the final images, it was well worth it.
Such a fantastic wedding to be apart of Ashton & Bobby. Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity and great all-round vibes.
