Ruth and Teal | Ardbrecknish House, Loch Awe

Wedding

What can I say about Ruth and Teal’s ” Scotland Edition ” wedding day. I say Scotland edition as they both flew all the way from Los Angeles, California where they both  live and work. The “U.S ” edition taking place later this year in Teal’s home state of Oregon. Ruth is originally from the scenic west coast town of Ullapool.

I say this a lot but it really was great to see both families come together from different corners of the world to celebrate Ruth and Teal’s love for one another. And what a setting! In the grounds of Arbrecknish House, looking over Loch Awe – it couldn’t have been anymore perfect. The day was far from traditional – Ruth – a busy costume designer,  made all of her shoes and dresses. She even designed and made Teal’s suit too! There was no wedding cake or traditional speeches , just lots of good Scottish whisky and dancing!

The only tradition was the clinking glasses!! I was wondering what was going on when everyone at the dinner table started clinking there glasses! This is an American tradition where the newly married couple have to kiss. Legend has it that back in the day wine was bitter and so by clinking the glass and the couple kissing – it made the wine sweeter! I like this legend story that was told to me by Ruth and Teal’s friends at the dinner table!

Thank you so much to everyone for making me feel so welcome on the day – I had an absolute blast with you all. All the best to you both Greyhavens!! Please say hello from time to time.

Kevin and Claire | Kinnetles Castle
Kevin and Claire's wedding day was held at the stunning Kinnetles Castle. It was your typical Scottish summer kind of a day! Rain in the morning, followed by severe gales to some gorgeous sunshine late in the evening! I arrived early and was greeted by Claire and the helpful staff to discuss the plan for the day. With the weather being so crazy everyone agreed to have an inside ceremony in the marque. The thing I loved most was that none of that mattered to both Kevin and Claire. They weren't going to let the weather get in the way of their big day. The day was a lot of fun, confetti played a big part, especially during the first dance! Both ...

Siobhan and Zak | Edinburgh Zoo
Pandas, penguins, tigers, statue elephants, ghostly spirits, Texans in kilts! Siobhan and Zak flew all the way over from Texas to marry at the idillic Mansion House, in the grounds of Edinburgh Zoo. Siobhan's late grandfather used to work at the zoo, so there was a special connection.I'm sure he even made his presence felt as Siobhan and Zak made their vows to one another! No joke! As Siobhan had almost everyone in tears with her most heartfelt of words to Zak, out of nowhere the biggest gust of wind  shook and rattled the windows. Now I'm not a believer in spirits but this had me doubting myself!The weather didn't quite play ball wit ...
