Kiera got in touch with me earlier this year and she mentioned a Halloween inspired Cooling Castle wedding??!! Oh yes please!! All her plans just sounded absolutely amazing and she made them all become reality 🙂
Cooling Castle wedding photography
This was my first time at Cooling Castle and hopefully not the last!! It is such a beautiful venue!
The barn was all set up and styled early in the morning. Kiera and her mum did a lot of the styling on the tables and they fully set up the ceremony room too.
Their decor was just stunning, inspired by Halloween but still kept cool and elegant. Danny, their florist made the most beautiful table arrangements and floral cake decoration, there were lots of pumpkins, deep colours with ivy and even chilli peppers!!
The most relaxed wedding day
I met Kiera and Gokhan at the bridal suite, they started getting ready together. Kiera had put together the most amazing gift boxes that made almost everyone cry with happiness… There were personalised glasses, hangers, fans and most importantly some lovely words inside the boxes. Then they got dressed separately and Gokhan went to greet the guests.
The ceremony was a lovely blessing by Kiera’s uncle then everyone headed to the bar for drinks. Just before wedding breakfast we took Kiera&Gokhan for some photos, they wanted to use some smoke bombs. Halloween colours of course 🙂
The speeches were all so emotional, I don’t think I have ever seen these many tears! Kiera even included a short speech in Turkish for Gokhan’s mum who did’t speak English…
Partying Turkish style
So there were 5 first dances 🙂 One of which was a surprise for Gokhan! Kiera organised a Turkish drummer band for traditional Turkish music and dancing. I have to say they definitely know how to party!! When they started playing, everyone was on the dancefloor in seconds 🙂
After all this partying everyone tucked into the amazing Turkish buffet dinner and the chocolate fountain!
We had such a lovely day with you guys, thank you so much!
