As you can imagine, I listen to lots of speeches. Whether it’s the Best Man, the Father of the Bride, or the Minister conducting the ceremony, I’ve usually heard most of what’s being said, in one form or another, before.
But Emma and William’s Scottish Borders wedding ceremony in Jedburgh’s Old Parish Church was different. It wasn’t just the lack of a central aisle, which meant I couldn’t photograph the couple as I wished to, it was what the Minister said in his address.
My own parents’ 60th wedding anniversary is looming on the horizon, and the ministers words on the meaning of love, in the long term, took on a special meaning. I’m not going to tell you what he said, as I’m going to use it myself in April next year! And I want it to remain a surprise….
After those lovely words we all made out way up to the Carfraemill Lodge Hotel, 30 minutes away. At a visit before the ceremony I’d discovered a single track road, that 400 meters from the venue, had the most wonderful tunnel of trees. I’m a sucker for either a beach or trees, so I was happy! As were Emma and William when I showed it to them.

I’ve updated the wedding gallery on this web site, and it now contains my favourite wedding photographs from this year, all showing ‘the look of love’ in it’s many interpretations.
There’s a few other behind the scenes changes as well – so if you spot any errors or problems, please let me know. And extra points if you can add a comment naming any of the venues featured. As a clue, I can tell you that they’re in Edinburgh, Glasgow, the Borders and the Highlands.
Here’s a taster – there are a few here and many more on the wedding gallery page.
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!
