Real Life Wedding: Barnbougle Castle

For anyone who’s in the know Barnbougle Castle weddings are more than a little bit special. It’s one of those Castles that is hidden in plain site – right on the banks of the Forth, just outside Edinburgh.

Aimee and Michael’s wedding was the perfect blend of romantic chill (think Scottish country castle meets Ibiza vibes – special mention to Gus on the decks)

From the minute Aimee arrived at the Castle with her Dad, in his classic red Morgan, the scene was set for an epic day. One of Michael’s highlights was seeing Aimee glide down the aisle. Kathleen Hood then led the ceremony sharing this pair’s love story, including mention of the 114,00 or so WhatsApp messages exchanged. Their ceremony was topped off by an incredible group sing of  You & Me by the Wannabies  ably accompanied by some moves on the maracas. It was impossible not to join in.

The weather was a surprise guest, allowing family and friends to sip bubbles outside the Castle, with the wise prepared with sunnies. The beach at Barnbougle Castle (yes it has its own beach too) was the perfect spot for evening cocktails and a few extra photographs.

Thank you Aimee and Michael for letting us tell this next chapter of your love story. We hope you both continue to smile as much as you did on your wedding day. Don’t ever grow up (either of you) and remember that you chose each other.

Excited to catch-up soon and share your full collection.


Alie & Niels xx

Cassie and Tom’s Christmas wedding at Mansfield Traquair was a festive celebration of love, laughter and one or two surprises 😉 We knew this was going to be the most epic of weddings, but still we were both blown away by the energy of these two. This is a couple who live and love 100mph and everyone around them adores them.
