at St Anthony’s Chapel

+ The Balmoral Hotel

Edinburgh-Scotland

If you’re planning a small wedding with just your nearest and dearest, then today’s #ThrowbackThursday post is for you. This beautiful, intimate wedding took place on the site of a ruined chapel on Arthur’s Seat (one of Edinburgh’s seven hills). Stella was make-up artist, hairdresser, florist… and bride. Be inspired – we were.

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT OR GRADUAL ATTRACTION?
More like the gradual attraction.
HOW WAS THE QUESTION POPPED?
Grant held up a sign saying WILL YOU MARRY ME in Polish, when he came off a flight at the airport back from Australia, after being a month away.
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING BLUE?
Old: embroidered handkerchief from my mother in law.
New: garter.
Borrowed: luckily penny from my friend.
Blue: grandmother’s brooch.

WEDDING STYLE?
Traditional Scottish, vintage, simple.
BEST COMPLIMENT ON YOUR WEDDING?
That we choose a great place to be married.
HONEYMOON OR MINI-MOON?
Mini-moon at Loch Lomond and coming honeymoon in Australia (in December/January)..
DID YOU EMBRACE OR DITCH TRADITION?
We ditched tradition.
CLOSE YOUR EYES, THINK OF YOUR WEDDING DAY… NOW DESCRIBE IT IN THREE WORDS…
Emotional, happy, beautiful.
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BEING HITCHED?
For me the sense of safety and credulity. For Grant to now that you are going to spend the rest of your life with someone who you love.
