Aberdeen-Scotland

It was love at first sight through gin-soaked eyes when Rachel and Graham met. A twisted take on antique chic set the tone for a day of unbridled, whirlwind fun.

How was the question popped?
On some rope swings, on a tiny beach, on an island (Pulau Weh) with no roads, in the Andaman Sea, off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia where we were scuba diving.
Something new, something borrowed, something blue?
New weddings rings, borrowed extra hairpins from photographer (never to be returned) and blue flower sewn into lining of dress.
Any unexpected moments?
Lighting a unity candle during the ceremony as a blessing, and the minister’s lighter wouldn’t spark up. Thankfully our best man came into his own and produced one from his sporran, apparently for cigars later.
Honeymoon or mini-moon?
Mini-moon to Berlin for a week. Grand trips are the way we normally approach holidays, so a mini city break seemed a good way to mark the occasion – with something different.
Did you embrace or ditch tradition?
We embraced our own interpretation of tradition!
Why Scotland?
Scottish weddings are the best in the world – plus, we live here.
