Skye-Scotland

Take a peek at this wedding and you’ll see first hand all there is to love about Scottish weddings: a ceremony complete with hand-fasting and some whisky from the quaich (see here for an explanation if you’re not sure what either are); breathtaking lochside views and a cracking knees-up (party) to celebrate. Had we been invited to Nicola and Davie’s wedding, we’d have been there with bells on…

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT OR GRADUAL ATTRACTION?
Love at first sight.
What personal touches did you add to your wedding?
We decorated the cake ourselves and made our own sweetie tree. We added personalised love heart sweets and chocolates. Our table decorations were wooden love hearts with our names and wedding date. We also had Harris Tweed phone covers.
What was on your wedding menu?
For starter we had Scallops or Black pudding with soft poached pear. For main the choice was Beef shin or Sea bass. We then had a sorbet course, followed by a trio of sweet desserts or cheese and biscuits.
