Tamara & Charlie, St Mary's Church, Dalmahoy & Clifton Hall School, Newbridge

It's rare for us to meet couples who have known each other since they went to primary school together. Rarer still for that couple to share the same birthday! You can't help but wonder if fate played a role in the match-making of this lovely couple...

Tamara's day started at Norton House Hotel, where she was getting ready with her parents and maids...

Tamara looked amazing in her Caroline Castigliano dress
















The bride & groom arrived at the recption in style (after a quick sight seeing tour over Edinburgh)...



The couple had chosen their primary school Clifton Hall, where they met two decades ago, as the venue for their wedding reception.




Little page boy Oliver took his very first steps at the reception!












Best Man Nick and Tamara & Charlie have known each other since they all went to primary school together, so when it came to his speech, there was nothing in the way of embarrassing secrets to reveal that Tamara didn't already know about! (He still managed to make poor Charlie cringe with his very funny speech!)



Jim McMail accompanied the couple as they danced their first dance as man and wife




We loved all the wonderful details and lovely people at this great wedding and left feeling happy to have been part of such a fun day.
We wish Tamara and Charlie a long and happy marriage together and a fantastic honeymoon and look forward to showing them the rest of the photos.

Katharine & Christian, Dirleton Kirk & Winton House, Pentcaitland

Katharine and Christian had chosen the wonderful Winton House in East Lothian for their wedding, the first of many inspired choices for the day. Everywhere you looked the couple and their family had put their personal and brilliant touches on the day: from the clip-on vintage earrings on the table plan, to the 150 metres of home-made bunting in the marquee, to the baskets of dancing shoes made available to female guests, these all came together to make a beautiful day extra special.
We really enjoyed getting to know Katharine and Christian and the Norris family and loved photographing their sunny and very happy day.
We wish them all the best for a long and happy marriage and look forward to showing them the rest of the photographs when they are back from honeymoon.
