A Risk Worth Taking

Katrina & James

Real Life Wedding: Dundas Castle

Dundas Castle makes for a pretty fabulous destination wedding location. And the wedding of Katrina and James was, in their own words “a dream come true”

We loved all of their personal touches – this was a wedding where family and friends were involved in every single part and the emotion was incredible. Even Grandma Donna was part of the day as Katrina had carefully added her lace into her own wedding dress.

A major highlight for this pair was the moment the saw each other at the top of the aisle. With Koen on violin there were few dry eyes in the house. We also love that Katrina was blown away by how handsome James was (even better than the model she chose the kilt from ????)

For us, one of the most incredible parts of the day was the vows Katrina and James made to their kids during their ceremony. So. Special.

Thank you Mr and Mrs Risk for letting us be part of your epic Scottish wedding. Made all the more special by waiting a little longer than planned. It was sooo worth it and those Scottish Risks definitely know how to make a party a party!

Real Life Wedding: Mansfield Traquair

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.

Barnbougle Castle in autumn literally glows from the inside out. So it was the perfect location for Babette and Lawrie’s wonderful thanksgiving inspired wedding.  This pair met 59 months ago, yet fit together so well you can’t imagine them not being a couple.
