There is something about these images – the light, the texture – their artistic interpretation and way those otherwise everyday and unceremonious style moments (putting on a tie, tieing a shoe lace) have been captured to feel so special. Yes, there is something wonderful about the way The Kitcheners have recorded these moments in time and I feel especially lucky that we get to enjoy and share them with you today.
Graphic Designer Emilie married Engineer Julien on 30th May this year at Dalduff Farm in Crosshill, Scotland. Their Spring wedding day was full of rustic charm. Located on a farm, which provided a completely blank canvass for them to style and decorate, the couple were very ably assisted by the Be Eventful team in bringing the space to life. I adore all the little touches and that modern wedding dress that so beautifully replicates the Edwardian lawn dress style of a by-gone era. These really are very beautiful wedding photographs and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
“Julien and I love to travel and we wanted to highlight our experience in travel and adventure. What we like most of all are beautiful evenings, movies under the stars, barbecues in the garden, laughter and good times with friends, so the keywords in designing our wedding were travel, botany, enjoy, barbecue and bonfire! We wanted something simple, but with lots of love.”

“Julien and I met eight years ago. We never really talked about marriage, except once during a trip to Scotland (we live in France). When one day, nine months before the wedding we decided to marry and remembered this conversation in Scotland and immediately chose it as the place for our wedding. It was a challenge to arrange everything from a distance in just nine months, but at the same time very exciting too.
We wanted for our wedding to take place in an unusual place, a farm in the middle of nature. Dalduff really was the perfect place for us because of the old farmhouse which was ideal for outdoor cocktail, and an interior wooden space for the meal and celebrations. In addition, the owner (James) was a pleasure to work with and allowed us to decorate the venue to our heart’s content, it was fantastic! He also provided the catering and the food he offered was excellent! Dalduff was the perfect
“My dress was by Laure de Sagazan, a French designer. I already loved the delicate work of Laura, but this dress was something else. I tried ten beautiful dresses and this particular gown was hanging in a corner on it’s own. I asked if I could try it on but the designer warned me that it might not fit as it wasn’t customised. I tried it on anyway and it became immediately obvious – this was ‘the one’!”
“The table plan was an old world map, each table named after a country we visited. Above each table, I made a wreath with hoops of steel brought from France, on which were placed the name of each country. The marks were small places “Polaroids” of photos I had taken in each country.
We had prepared postcards and a mailbox, tattoos, candy bar and a whiskey bar, with different types of Scotch whiskey for people to “become familiar with”
“We love the work of Three Sisters Bake, and I wanted a Naked Cake! We also had some really delicious giant meringues! We also provided cream and berries and people were able to make a DIY pavlova.”
“We hired Kitchener Photography to shoot our wedding. The Kitchener’s work is indescribable – they sublimate the marriage by their presence and their work – we couldn’t have dreamt of better. They knew perfectly how to capture the atmosphere of the marriage, the looks, the people, the laughter, the warmth of the fire!
We had a wonderful meeting with Joanne and Dylan who we found to be a great couple. We have so many beautiful photos that we cannot thank them enough – I simply cannot recommend them more highly.”
