Real Life Scottish wedding: The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh


Vivian & Hugh

Recipe for Happily Ever After


It’s always super special when couples travel from the other side of the world to get married in Edinburgh. Let’s be honest Edinburgh is the perfect city for a destination wedding. For Vivian and Hugh it was even more special as they had double celebrations (for Hugh’s birthday) and they brought their friends and family along for the adventure.

The Balmoral Hotel was the dream place for this celebration, which was more than a little glam and elegant… and just take a peak at those golden rooftop views – swoon!

Vivian and Hugh thank you for letting us share in this wedding party. We had a ball with you and your besties.

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.
