Ayrshire is a picturesque region of Scotland, with a variety of stunning locations for wedding photography. From historic castles to rugged coastlines, there are plenty of scenic spots to choose from when choosing your perfect wedding venue. I recently had the opportunity to shoot a styled shoot at an incredible castle wedding venue called Killochan Castle alongside Neah McGregor, and my word… WHAT A WEDDING VENUE.
Killochan Castle was built in the early 17th century and is set in beautiful grounds, with extensive gardens and woodland. It’s location is extremely private, which makes it the ideal exclusive use wedding venue. The castle has been lovingly restored and boasts ten bedrooms as well as a grand ballroom and a smaller private dining room, which means it has brilliant potential for both small, intimate weddings as well as larger weddings. The castle is a rabbit warren of spiral staircases, secret doorways, snugs and nooks and even on a grey wet day like the day of this shoot, there are never ending photo opportunities indoors.

Intimate Ayrshire Wedding Venue
When it comes to choosing a wedding photographer in Ayrshire, it’s important to do your research and find someone whose images you connect with; there are so many different styles of wedding photographers including colourful, documentary photographers. Many wedding photographers in Ayrshire offer a variety of packages for all kinds of weddings from elopements and microweddings, right up to large full day celebrations.
You may also want to consider the photographer’s experience, portfolio, and reviews from past clients. I think its really important to chat to your potential photographers in person or via video call before booking to get a sense of their personality and ensure that you feel comfortable working with them on your big day; I don’t believe it’s enough to just love your photographers work alone.
