Windswept and wonderful

Carly & Andrew

Real Life Wedding: Cairns Farm

Cairns Farm Estate sits just outside Edinburgh, yet feels like it’s a million miles away from the city.

The day of Carly and Andrew’s wedding was jam-packed with energy and love. It was the kind of day where the wind is in charge and you just have to go with it. These two are the ultimate go-with-the-flow kind of people and everyone loves them for it.

Carly and Andrew thank you for embracing everything that your wedding day brought and for going where the wind took you. I don’t think either of you stopped smiling all day. A huge highlight for you two (and I think everyone else in the room) was the aisle walk – first with little Darcey and then Carly and Dad. We love your description of your wedding as a beautiful family party as it was that and then some. Your family and friends were a delight to be around and Aunty Linda can join our photography team any day.

Enjoy highlights of your wonderfully windswept and effortlessly perfect wedding day.

Cairns Farm Weddings

By the time you arrive at Cairns Farm Estate you’ll already feel like you’ve left the cares and buzz of the city far behind. Nestled into the foot of the Pentalnds, surrounded by water and forest, it feels remote in all the best ways.

We love that you can hold your whole wedding here  – from ceremony to dancing – and there is so much space you can fit all your friends and family in.

An added bonus has to be the proximity to sheep and highland cattle, visible from the picture windows on all sides of the barn.

We reckon this is the barn venue that Edinburgh was in need of and is everything you would hope it would be.

Just putting it out there  – Michelle and Ryan are two of the most wonderfully warm, funny humans you’ll every meet. Clearly their friends and family adore them. Oh and Llamas talk to them – so that definitely deserves some kudos.

Real Life Wedding: Dundas Castle

14 October 2023

Thinking back to our first meeting with Katie and David (which was also at Dundas Castle) one of the things we loved most about this pair was how much they laughed and smiled together. And it was exactly the same on their wedding day… from walking through their avalanche of confetti to holding tight to each other on the top of a very windy roof of Dundas, these two are for each other. Every step of the way.
