Linley Estate | Steph & Nic’s Wedding

Wedding Photography at Linley Estate

Steph & Nic celebrated their wedding day at the lovely Linley Estate in Kilsyth, surrounded by their closest family and friends. As each small detail of the day unfolded, it was so clear that their wedding was very much personalised for them, and only them.

Getting Ready

My day started with the bridal coverage in the morning. On my arrival, everyone was so relaxed and just in the best state of mind, and excited for the day ahead. You could tell straight away that nothing was going to ruin this day. The girls got ready, and Steph made everyone lunch (as it was pointed out, it should have been the other way around!) Something I haven’t seen before, is bridesmaids wearing leggings with prints of their favourite cartoon characters on under their dresses. I thought it was really cool and different, and tied in perfectly with all the other details of the day. It definitely reflected on Steph & Nic’s fun and easy-going nature.

The Ceremony

Once the girls were ready, it was time to head over to the beautiful Linley Estate in Kilsyth to prepare for the ceremony and make sure everything was running according to plan. We had plenty of time, and the girls weren’t stressed at all. In fact, they were laughing and having a lot of fun when I got to the bridal room.

Soon enough, guests started to arrive and the nerves started to kick in, but whoever knows the lovely couple, knows that they’re meant to be – I mean, they’ve been together for a decade! A very beautiful ceremony was delivered by their celebrant and the formalities ran very smoothly. Before no time, Steph and Nic were walking down the aisle as man and wife.

Location Photos & Reception

After the group photo and family shots, I snuck off with Steph & Nic for a few minutes to capture some portraits of just the two of them. They were so cute together!

The couple was introduced into the reception at Linley Estate. Soon followed by me photographing the cake cut and first dance. The speeches were hilarious, especially from the bride’s father. He delivered one of the funniest speeches I’ve heard. Following the speeches was the father-daughter dance, and it was so beautiful. It’s hard not to get emotional when I see something so lovely and I’m so thankful that I get the pleasure of capturing it.

All in all, I think Steph & Nic’s wedding was a fantastic day at Linley Estate, surrounded by beautiful people. Thank you Steph & Nic for allowing me to be a part of your special day.

“Carley is an outstanding wedding photographer! She was lovely, attentive and listened to how we wanted our wedding day to be captured. Her approach of capturing the natural/not staged moments is exactly what we wanted. She did an amazing job of dealing with a Groom that hates getting his photo taken, as well as dealing with a lot of family members. She knew exactly where to be and when to get all the key shots, that I didn’t even notice she was there half the time. I would absolutely recommend her to any Bride and Groom that wants a down to earth and passionate wedding photographer. Thank you Carley!” – Steph & Nic
