Edinburgh Castle Wedding

What I like about Edinburgh Castle is that it can be a venue for huge big weddings and more intimate ones too. Alex and Lynn decided to get married in the Gatehouse, which was a nice, cosy room. This was another very emotional wedding as Alex and Lynn had known each other for many years before they finally got together. I think they make a lovely couple.

And here are the bridesmaids, Lynn's sister Wendy and niece Evie who read Us Two from Winnie the Pooh. Adorable!

Mavis Hall Park Wedding

I'd never been to Mavis Hall Park before Gail and Graham asked me to do their ceremony there. As soon as I saw this, I knew I was going to love it!

There were lots of chickens mingling around! My pics of the barn don't do it justice, I'm afraid. It was beautiful and cosy with hay bails all round the walls.

Gail and Graham were going to have a bonfire in the courtyard later and a pig spit roast for dinner. Here they are looking gorgeous.

Craigmillar Castle Wedding

Mary and Vince really went to town to make their wedding personal and a lot of fun.

Craigmillar Castle is a beautiful venue but I wonder if it is the first time they have ever had a powerpoint presentation as part of the ceremony...

This was a lovely idea. Mary and Vince sent out a reply slip with their invitations and invited all their guests to write what marriage mens on it. They created this lovely slide show with music playing in the background and the messages from their gusts were intercepted with photos of themselves throughout their relationship. The slide above says: "Not being too idealistic and knowing that loving is more secure than being in love". Another said : "A figment of the imagination (only joking!)" It meant that all the guests contributed to the ceremony.

Mary and Vince's mums were the witnesses.

And here is the most important part of the ceremony.

The Hub Wedding

What makes a 'cool' wedding? For me its when you take some traditional elements and add a few of your own.

Joanna and Joe married in the Hub in Edinburgh, which is a pretty traditional venue but instead of walking into Highland Cathedral or the wedding march, Joanna entered to Love is better than a warm trombone by Gomez - I had no idea what the music was till I heard it - but let me tell you, it was pretty Rockin! Here she is:

The ceremony was in the main hall and we were up on the stage.

They left to more groovy music and here they are newly married!
