Real Life Wedding: Edinburgh Garden followed by the Kimpton Hotel

Laura & John

A little bit of perfect

What could be more perfect than an Edinburgh garden wedding?

I mean when your garden has a lawn that was almost designed for outdoor parties it would be rude not to!

To say we’d been looking forward to this wedding for quite a while may well be the biggest understatement of the year. These two are soo good together and their wedding day, despite all the Covid madness, came together into a day that we can only describe as more than a little bit of perfect.

Mr and Mrs Ferguson – you did it!!! You have resilience, patience and positivity in bucket-loads and we are in awe of how you’ve coped with so many alternative plans this year. Yes it wasn’t quite the day you’d originally planned (with all the people you’d planned) but in the end it was nothing short of brilliant and we feel so privileged to have been a part of it. Even the weather was on your side.

Cannot wait to catch-up and re-live the whole day… oh and start planning for the next party at Ballogie!

Planning a Wedding through Covid-19

JP and Laura have been incredible throughout all their wedding planning, despite the set-backs. Don’t even get us started on the nonsense rules (not political statements here!) but the fact they kept focused on the important things, like why they were getting married and the importance of their family and friends we’ve no doubt is what got them through it.

It was also lovely that two of the bridesmaids (who were on the other side of the world) were part of the whole thing:  from prep, with their matching PJs, through to the ceremony, with their dresses on. They even nailed a hilarious (and emotional) bridesmaid speech. Technology is truly great.

Be encouraged if you’re planning a wedding day that looks different to what you imagined. If you’re anything like Laura and JP it will be perfect in the end. Here’s a few of our top tips on planning a wedding through a global pandemic.

Real Life Wedding: Dunglass Estate

06 April 2024

Alex and Molly are the kind of people who embrace life and all it throws at them. Including what we can only be described as the windiest wedding I think we’ve ever been at (think winds of 50 mph – enough to take out huge stone planters) And the result was a wedding day that was even more magical that anyone could have imagined.

Real Life Wedding: Drumtochty Castle

03 April 2024

Their spring wedding was beautiful in spite of the rain (think one of the wettest days ever). Actually it was a little more beautiful because of the rain. As family and friends dashed for cover under mutlicloured brollies there were smile, giggles and lot of togetherness. And what could be better than cosying up in Drumtochty Castle as the wood burners crackle?

Real Life Wedding: Signet Library

23 March 2024

As Joe and Elias greeted us (with bear hugs rather than hand shakes) we knew they were our kind of people. The kind of people who make life about the people around them rather than the stuff they have; the kind of people who appreciate the little things; the kind of people who value love. Yup we’d hang out with these two any day of the week.
