Real Life Wedding – Graeme & Kelly Stirling 

Wedding Date – 17th August 2017

 

“We are absolutely delighted with our wedding day and all that Kinkell Byre had to offer us!”

 

Tell us a little bit about planning your wedding? 

It was really important to us to have a rustic wedding; that was more about us as a couple celebrating the love we have for one another, along with our friends and family. The feel of the day was more important than the decor and fancy frocks! Graeme is a farmer and Kelly rides horses so Kinkell Byre seemed like such a perfect representation of our lives.

What did you both enjoy planning?

Kelly enjoyed it more than Graeme!! Loved getting into all the small details, making our own favours, centrepieces, menus and flower arrangements.  

Tell us about your day?

The day was magical, so personal to us. We loved every moment and our guests thought it was simply amazing, they spoke about it for weeks. 

What made it so special?

It was special for us to be surrounded by so much love coming from all our nearest and dearest. 

What advice do you have for other couples planning their wedding?

Do what makes you happy! You will never get the special time back so enjoy planning everything and embrace the moments of the day. 

How is married life treating you?

In terms of day to day life, its really just the same as before but we wear rings! However, there is a deeper gratitude now that we have committed our lives to one another.

Real Life Wedding – Amy & Frazer

Wedding Date – 23rd June 2018

Tell us a little bit about planning your wedding? 

When we got engaged, we both agreed we were in no hurry to get married too quickly, as having just bought our first flat together we were still working on renovations and wanted to take our time to make our wedding exactly how we wanted it.

Our only initial thoughts were that we wanted something that we could make unique and customise to match what we believed was a reflection of us as a couple. Continue Reading…

Your Ceremony Options at Kinkell Byre

We have a fantastic choice of on-site locations for your unique ceremony. Inside and outside!

Here at Kinkell we have 3 indoor and 3 outdoor locations for your ceremony. 

Indoor locations at Kinkell Byre:

Indoor Location 1.  Our most popular Ceremony option is in the “Tattie Shed”. This shed that was added to the Byre in more recent years for storing potatoes in the winter. This is why this part of the building looks different to the rest of the Byre and has very little natural light. 
The Tattie shed is a large square room with red brick walls and a tin roof. However, it is also home to the custom-built starlight canopy, which Kinkell is well known for. This beautiful lighting canopy was built by Stephen Leslie of i-light to create a striking focal point in what originally was a very industrial looking shed. Continue Reading…

The Bar at Kinkell Byre

We have a preferred bar supplier and here are the reasons why.

Our preferred bar supplier – Event Bars St Andrews

Here at Kinkell Byre we have decided to have a set bar supplier, Event Bars St Andrews. Event Bars is run by two gentlemen, Brian and Ross who we have come to know very well. 

By having a set bar supplier, we feel this gives our clients a bar set up which appears to be a permanent feature and also provides a very high standard bar service without sacrificing the flexibility of the venue.

Barn Wedding Decor Advice

Everything you need to know about wedding decor at Kinkell Byre

There is a lot of advice out there when it comes to wedding decor and a huge array of suppliers offering their services, to help make sure you get it right. However, when it comes to a barn wedding venue like Kinkell Byre, there really isn’t much information out there to help you. Our barn is a beautiful rustic old building, creating a perfect backdrop that allows each couple to design a wedding around their personal tastes. We understand it can be a little daunting knowing exactly how to achieve the look that you want and with this in mind we have asked the professionals (who have worked at Kinkell Byre) what their advice is, and what services that they can offer a couple getting married at Kinkell Byre.
