Gemma & Chris’ Wedding, Hopetoun House, South Queensferry, Part 1

Gemma and Chris’ wedding was such a special one for so, so many reasons… so many people who helped the day to come together have known Gemma since a very young age so it meant heaps to see them involved. Just a few tears were shed as Gemma and her Dad walked up the aisle.


We knew we were in for a world of complete loveliness and major attention to detail with Gemma and Chris’ wedding. Gemma is one super talented lady, as anyone who knows her would tell you (and those who’ve seen her many and varied creations will echo this)


For us, the word that sums up Gemma and Chris’ wedding above all others, is ‘together’. From all the team at Planet Flowers who worked alongside Gemma to help her vision come to life, to the teams at Hopetoun House and Heritage Portfolio who were so delighted to be involved in their day… but even more than that to the togetherness of Gemma and Chris. They are a top couple and fit together so well and make the perfect team.


Team Bain you know we think you two are a huge bundle of fabiness… thank you for letting us be part of your wedding. We loved every second.


Enjoy your blog post…


See you soon, big Blue Sky love always,


A&N xxx


























Niels was also very chuffed as Gemma made something for Niels to wear as well – love it!




The ceremony was lovely and intimate and we loved the signing table, which Gemma and Chris had covered together with lots of individual leaves – stunning. And seriously – how lovely are these pumpkins? (each one grown by Rachel).

















After the ceremony guests were welcomed into the Carriage Room for a little glass of something and some lovely canapes






















Wow! How much fun did we have creating this blog post… and the exciting thing is that there’s a Part 2 coming soon…

    Oh my! Who knew that pumpkins are so beautiful. And the cinnamon sticks in the jars and the nuts beside them and the table covered with Autumn leaves and the beautiful little boxes and the flowers. Oh my. THE. FLOWERS.

    And such a beautiful relaxed bride in a dress that makes her look a million dollars. And. Of course. The photographers. Who are genuinely awesome.

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

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.
