We love beautiful and unique weddings that are full of inspiration for all of our brides, and this quirky destination wedding is just that.
Esther and Jamie both said, “I do” on the 19th July. Their heartfelt vows were followed by an intimate celebration in the groom’s family home in Scotland.
“We wanted a relaxed, simple but beautiful wedding.”
“I always thought I would have a big wedding, but that is not who Jamie is. So, I compromised and we had 60 people. They were 60 great people and I wouldn’t change a thing about the day.”
This charming celebration was full of love, laughter and a whole load of sweet treats captured wonderfully by Lee Scullion.
“We looked for someone relatively local, but who was quirky and took great pictures. Lee was so great on the day, he blended into the wedding and everyone liked him. Thinking of it now, it’s good to have a photographer who could be a guest – as in, similar ‘type’ of person to you.”
Advice for other brides and grooms?
“Never forget why you are getting married. The wedding lasts a day but marriage is forever. A wedding is about both of you; it’s a reflection of you as a couple. If there’s no sign of the groom in the detail, then…good luck in the marriage part.”
What was your highlight of the day?
“Just the general happiness I felt. I felt so loved by everyone there. My in-laws had put so much effort into getting the venue sorted to be as beautiful as it could. We were beyond lucky with the weather. In fact, Jamie was happy all day. Seeing him so relaxed and happy really made the day. He’s not into big groups and when we organized the wedding, I remember being conscious that I wanted him to be as comfortable as possible – perhaps part of the reason we had it at his parents house and his parents organized the catering. It meant that he could have some form of control without actually doing anything. So my memorable highlight was the happiness that I felt, I could see in Jamie. Is that cringe enough – or too much?”
