If you’re in the mood for planning a Christmas-themed wedding, then the photography from this festive one from Harelaw Farm is a treat. Simon and Siobhan planned a wonderful sparkly yuletide wedding at Harelaw Farm and while it was cold outside, it was lovely and snug in the barn.
Siobhan got ready at home, surrounded by her team of bridesmaids and helpers for the day. It was then off to St Joseph’s Parish Church for the official bit. And this is where it got fun. Becuase it’s not often that mid-way through a ceremony, the priest makes a cheeky joke about how you’re going to give everyone a discount. Hang on what now?
Siobhan comes from a really talented family too, who performed at the ceremony. Siobhan walked down the aisle to ‘Bonobos’ by Kinnaris Quintet. The band performed as Simon and Siobhan walked out of the church, playing Toria’s 50th.
Harelaw Farm Wedding Reception
Then it was time to head off to Harelaw Farm.
I really like the team at Harelaw Farm. They are very accommodating, very helpful, and really looked after me. That’s something that rates highly with me. My rule of thumb has always been that hospitable venues that are lovely to the other suppliers are going to be wonderful with the guests and couples too.
What I loved about this space, was that it was cosy even in the depths of winter. The barn was a perfect setting with the twinkling lights. It was a large enough space as well for all the guests to stay inside and cosy through the reception with break-out spaces to chill and relax.
Simon and Siobhan fell in love with Harelaw Farm’s rustic nature and thought it would be special over Christmas time with the lighting. They were looking for a venue to have all their loved ones all together in one place, a good boogie and bevvy at night time.
Festive Spirited Wedding At Harelaw Farm
As a wedding photographer at Harelaw Farm, it was a great space to play with. It was so much fun making photos here with the sparkly lights and a pop of flash to add an extra dimension. Far from feeling dull and dark, it really came to life with all the lighting. I loved creating interesting wedding photography at Harelaw Farm.
Furthermore, the added farmhouse means that you’re able to slip away for a few minutes without venturing outside. There was plenty of parking too. Harelaw Farm is only a short distance from Glasgow via major motorways. No struggling along icy country roads, and handy for people who want to book a taxi to get them home at the end of the night.
Remember when I mentioned Siobhan’s musical family? Their first dance was ‘Flowers in the Window’ by Travis. Siobhan’s Aunt’s band (Quigley Point) then led them into a ceilidh with traditional music. The couple hired a great DJ (MPG Entertainments) and Siobhan’s friends performed a few songs with Siobhan joining them on stage.
