Real Life Scottish wedding: The Gleneagles Hotel


Rachel & Grant

The Perfect Day


When you plan your wedding months (even years) in advance you imagine exactly how it will go. The details are well thought through so that the day runs smoothly, just exactly as planned. And then a world pandemic starts to unfold just before your wedding day and suddenly everything has to change…

But Rachel and Grant didn’t flinch: they effortlessly transformed their plans, went with the flow and managed to hold the most perfect of wedding days literally days before lockdown.

Guys, this may not have been day you set out to have when we planned this with you all those months ago, but it was still thee most perfect day.  You were not expecting such amazing sun (in March!). You were not planning an outdoor ceremony in the glorious playground. You were not planning an intimate dinner with your closest family and friends. And yet you had the most perfect celebration. We salute you and love both you and your wonderful attitude.

If the days leading up to you wedding were so fluid (for want of a better word!) and you’ve managed to navigate this so skilfully, we know that your marriage and all that lies ahead of you will be the perfect marriage.

Looking forward to seeing you soon (and hugging you in person!) in the not too distant future…

#BigBlueSkyLove,

Alie & Niels xxx

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.
