It’s seven years ago this weekend that Chris and Jane got married at Fenton Tower, with a party on Ravensheugh beach. A lot has happened in that time – including two beautiful daughters, moving house and an expanding business – but time seems to fly when you’re happy! As Jane said on Facebook today: “7 years on and we’re still laughing!”
With best wishes for another seven years of laughter and fun, and with much thanks for providing the signature image on this site’s home page. You can laugh even when it’s raining!
I love small weddings, especially when they’re organised so efficently by Yvonne at Sixpence Weddings. Tania and Stanley live on the other side of the world, in Perth, Australia, and were only going to have two guests at their wedding, so a bit of additional help from Yvonne made things a lot easier for them!
Yvonne organised permission from Historic Scotland for them to be married on the shore of St Margaret’s Loch in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, and got Humanist celebrant Duncan Robertson to conduct the ceremony, Pipe Major Iain Grant to provide musical accompaniment on his bagpipes, and of course myself to take the wedding photographs.
My day saw me with Stanley and Tania’s uncle Liam as they got ready and drinking a nerve-steadying brandy at their hotel, before I moved across town to find Tania getting ready while being watched, via Skype, by her Grandmother in Australia!
Perfect weather provided beautiful lighting for the photographs of the ceremony and several photo-sessions round Holyrood Park before the happy couple made their way to their requested ‘typical pub dinner’ at Deacon Brodies on the Royal Mile.
What a perfect Saturday for a wedding at Wedderburn Castle. The sun shone, but not too hotly, the clouds came and went without dropping any rain, and Ashleigh and Ross got married surrounded by their family and friends.
Add to the mix two young and very cute bridsemaids, the beautiful relaxed setting of the castle and it’s interior, enthusiastic dancing in the evening, and it all added up to a perfect day!
