Scottish Ceilidh Wedding with Fire Engine & Horses - Kirsty & Stephen

Wedding Ceremony at St Peters Church Ropsley

I'm going to start by stating that this wedding had it all - traditional Scottish themes, fire engines, horses, lawn games, Ceilidh Dancing..... the only thing it didn't have was dancing horses. And Kirsty & Stephen are such a fun, authentic and relaxed couple to work with. Loved every minute of it.

Kirsty & Stephen Married at St Peters church in Ropsley, which is a beautiful village on the outskirts of Grantham. The men came dressed in Scottish attire - full kilts! - and Kirsty was serenaded by a bagpiper as she walked up to the church.

After the ceremony, and lots of hugs and congratulations (more than I could possibly show here!) the newlyweds disappeared in a vintage fire truck and we drove up to Belvoir Castle for some photo opportunities. While there, we switched from the fire engine to a horse and carriage (a big surprise for the guests and drove to the reception.

Wedding Reception @ Chequers Inn Woolsthorpe

On arrival at Chequers Inn Woolsthorpe we were greeted by lawn games, cloudy but dry weather (mostly) and headed in for the meal and speeches - one of which was delivered by Zoom as the best man was abroad (Australia?)

The evening was spent dancing the night away to The Ermine Street Ceilidh band

Anyway... photos. (and a slideshow if you want to hit play)
