Rowena & Robin's Enchanted Forest Winter Wedding, Kelso | Wedding Photography

We always knew Rowena and Robin's wedding was going to be a pretty awesome occasion. When they first told us about the day, the vision and the people involved, we knew that it would take a lot of hard work to pull it off, but if anyone was going to do it, here was the right team. 
The plans for the reception venue was to create an Enchanted Forest; and with the help of Carnival Chaos, Tower Events, Wilde Thyme, Laura Eberst and some crafty friends, the vision was delivered to perfection. 
The weather gods had played their part and delivered a beautiful white cover for the ground and bright blue skies above.
Add into the mix 10 adorable flowergirls and pageboys in blue Harris Tweed, each with their own little lantern and you really couldn't have made the whole thing anymore amazing.

Rowena and her team of kids, mums, family and helpers all started their day at her parents' beautiful house.

I love the addition of cones and twigs in Rowena's bouquet. Shame you can't photograph the smell...

It's handy having nine usher when there is snow shoveling to do and flowers to carry...

After the ceremony, we headed back to the house for a few formal photographs.

I loved this little idea - reading glasses attached to the seating plan!

The enchanting set-up!

Rowena and Robin, we had such a fantastic time photographing your wedding - your hard work and attention to detail made sure everything looked just perfect, while your fun friends and family made sure there were plenty of smiles to capture all day.

We hope you have enjoyed this little preview and look forward to sharing the rest of the photos with you soon!

Charlotte & Allan, Fettes College & Signet Library, Edinburgh

This wedding makes me smile every time I think about it.
From our very first meeting, Charlotte and Allan have spoken about their wedding day with contagious excitement and we had been looking forward to the big day almost as much as they had.
And how could we not be excited? Two stunning venues in the centre of Edinburgh, a friendly, laid-back couple and some incredibly talented wedding suppliers all made this day really special.

A special mention to Mette from Freja Designer Dressmaking, who not only made the beautiful wedding dress, but also did the stunning outfits for the bridesmaids and the mother-of-the-bride.

Charlotte started her day in the Balmoral Hotel on Princes Street. Charlotte's lovely natural make-up was done by LG Makeup.

The wedding service took place in the chapel at Fettes College, one of Edinburgh's most iconic buildings.

Charlotte is a musician and music teacher, so a lot of thought had gone into the music and hymn choices for the ceremony. The 14-person-strong choir were the best choir I have ever heard at a wedding.

The wedding reception was held at the magnificent Signet Library, where Heritage Portfolio and Flowers by Maxwell had worked their magic.
The Upper Library in the photo below was described by King George IV as "the finest drawing room in Europe" - easy to see why!

Charlotte and Allan, thank you for sharing your wedding with us - it has been fantastic getting to know you and your families.
We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness (and music!) together as husband and wife.

We hope you have enjoyed this little preview and look forward to showing you the rest of the photos when they are done.
