The Waterside Hotel wedding – one of the most exotic venues in West Scotland
The Waterside Hotel Wedding
Carol and Richard’s The Waterside Hotel Wedding was a dream. This location blended perfectly coastal charm with pure sophistication. Bathed in sunshine and blessed with an idyllic beachfront setting, their celebration was nothing short of stylish perfection.
The venue’s direct access to the beach allowed guests to soak in the breathtaking views, becoming the canvas for a day filled with laughter, love, and a touch of whimsy.
The morning preparations with the most stunning views
Carol and her team was busy getting ready at one of the Waterside Hotel’s spacious rooms overlooking the Firth of Clyde. The morning was glorious and crispy. The April sun was delightful but the wind was reminding us of this not yet being the full summer! I wrapped myself up in my cosy parka coat, put on a pair of fleece gloves and went on a walk along the beach, scouting for locations for our portraits later on.
Meanwhile, the cosy bridal apartment was busy and filled with joy. Finally, the bride and her team were ready for me and the overwhelming cheer and buzz was incredible. The girls were nearly ready, they started to put on their beautiful dusty sage bridesmaids dresses, perfectly matched with the delightful surroundings of the breezy sea.
Romantic Wedding Ceremony with a spectacular view
The humanist ceremony conducted by Craig Flowers IHC Celebrant was fabulous. It was both relaxed and emotional, with Carol and Richard’s pup joining us for the rings exchange! The views were just spectacular with the water’s edge in West Kilbride and panoramic views of Arran.
The ceremony was followed by a confetti shot and a group photograph of all guests taken from above.
Elevating the cocktail hour, the couple introduced a unique spin with live caricature artist. Quirky drawings capturing the essence of the day became instant treasures, adding a dash of individuality to the day.
Beyond the picturesque venue, the golden sands beckoned for a post-ceremony photoshoot. Carol and Richard, along with their bridesmaids and groomsmen, embraced the coastal backdrop, creating candid moments that echoed the natural beauty of their love.
Adding a playful touch, the couple included their four-legged companion for a memorable cameo. Their furry friend not only stole hearts but became an integral part of the festivities.
As the sun dipped below the horizon, transforming the beachside celebration into a twilight masterpiece, it was evident that Carol and Richard had organised an event that seamlessly blended cool elegance with genuine warmth.
Here’s to a wedding that embraced the spirit of the moment, the beauty of the coast, and the timeless love of Carol and Richard. May their journey continue to be as radiant as the sunshine that graced their special day. Cheers to love, laughter, and a celebration etched in style!
