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.

#BigBlueSkyLove,

Alie & Niels xx

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.

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.
