I’m guessing I’m not the only one who woke up on Monday and thought, “It’s October already?!”. Doesn’t it feel like time accelerates as they year goes on? January lasts forever but September was a blink and miss it page in the calendar. This month I’m looking forward to embracing autumn, being a bridesmaid for the very first time, taking the first steps towards getting my motorbike licence and heading to the Isle of Arran for a bit of family chill time. Hope you’ve got some exciting plans lined up too! But first, let’s kick things off with a look back at some of our favourite wedding moments on the blog from the past few weeks…
1. THE VERY WHITE WEDDING
When the Beast From The East hit Scotland, the week of Nona & James’ wedding, it began to look like they may have change all their plans. For starters, Nona’s dress was due to be collected from the boutique, which was inaccessible, and their Loch Lomond venue was snowed in too. Thanks to the efforts of local farmers, the incredible team at Ross Priory and their amazing suppliers – who pulled out all the stops to make their day happen – they were able to go ahead with their very white wedding. Such an amazing team effort!
Not only that, but their photos are out-of-this-world beautiful! This one by The Gibsons sums up friendship perfectly.
2. HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!
After falling in love with Glen Clova in Angus, Elizabeth & Craig knew it was the perfect place for their wild and atmospheric wedding. In true Scottish style their spring celebration featured all four seasons but the dusting of snow on the hills only added to the magic. With rustic styling, lots of foliage and a few more props than originally planned, their intimate wedding is sure to inspire.
This moment, captured beautifully by Anna Urban, when Elizabeth & Craig left the church with their wee girl gave us all the feels – so much joy here!
3. WHEN TWO CULTURES COME TOGETHER
Inspired by the coming together of their two cultures, Claire and Kameel celebrated with a fusion of Scottish and Indian traditions, music and food. Their search for a blank canvas venue led them to The Byre At Inchyra in Perthshire, which they turned into a breathtaking candlelit and flower-filled space – perfect for their Hindu ceremony. The minute we set eyes on their photos we fell in love.
We love this photo of a Highland cow watching Kameel and his groomsmen go by in their traditional Indian dress. A huge high five to photographer, Marc Millar who told the story of the day exquisitely.
4. A QUIET MOMENT
After falling in love with one of Scotland’s most iconic castles, Orkney-based James and Becki couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else. They tied the knot in an intimate evening ceremony at 13th century Eilean Donan Castle then celebrated with a family gathering at Dornie Lodges on the shore of Loch Long. With wild views over the sea loch and hills, it was an incredible end to a beautiful day.
We love this atmospheric photo of James, taken by Natalie Martin, Story of Love Photography just before the ceremony began.
5. A LITTLE BIT EXCITED
After discovering they could have a non-religious ceremony in the incredibly romantic 17th century kirk, Gael and Greg knew that Glencorse House was the venue for them. Nestled in the foothills of the Pentlands near Edinburgh, this exclusive use private estate was the perfect setting for their relaxed, colourful celebration. From Gael’s gorgeous Claire Pettibone dress to the bright and colourful flowers and copper frame table decorations, there’s so much to love and be inspired by here.
This photo by Jen Owens made us smile lots – a wonderful moment, beautifully captured.
A huge thank you to all the lovely couples (and their photographers!) who shared their photos with us. If you’d like to see your wedding feature on We Fell In Love, here’s where to tell us all about your day. x
