Our Wedding

Our recent stay at the Maryculter House Hotel for our anniversary had us reminiscing about our wedding. We got out our wedding album and looked through some of the pictures of the day, and I thought I would share some of them with you. These photos were all taken by our wonderful photographer, Kelly from KAD Photography.

I love my wedding shoes. I bought them in Debenhams and wish I could wear them over and over. Unfortunately they are now filthy as I wandered through the grass to get photos. I’m hoping that (if I ever get around to it) they may clean up OK. If not I might see about having them died.

Wedding Shoes

Pretty as they were, I’m useless in heels. I wore my shoes for the ceremony and photos and then changed into some British Knights I had blinged up! I stuck diamontes and fake pearls on the toes and replaced the laces with ivory ribbon. Voila – comfy shoes to dance all night in!

I travelled to Edinburgh to find my wedding dress. It was strapless – despite me always saying I didn’t want a strapless dress! There were 7 layers of fabric (yes 7!), a long train and a corset back. Each layer of fabric brought something different to the dress, my favourite was one with a sparkle to it. It was around 5 layers down so it is only very very subtle from the outside.

The train was so long. I left it loose for the ceremony and photos but had to bustle it for the evening so I didn’t have everyone tripping over it!

Wedding Dress

We got married in a beautiful church in the area I grew up in. It was a fabulous setting, with the added bonus of nostalgia.

I had one of my sisters as maid of honour. My nephew was only a few weeks old but she did awesome managing to breastfeed in a really unhelpful dress! A friend was my other bridesmaid and a niece was flower girl. Jonathan’s best man was a close friend he’s known all his life. His cousin and my younger brother were the ushers.

Wedding Party

All the flowers for the day were arranged by my mum and other family and friends. For my bouquet I had calla lilies. I love their simplicity. We draped a string of pearls through them too.

My wedding cake was made by my God mother. She had also made my christening cake when I was a baby so it was really special.

The day had started off with lashing rain, so we had feared the worst. By some miracle the sun came out just before I headed to the church and stayed out all afternoon. It was freezing outside for the photos but we didn’t care!

Although it was sunny the wind was really strong! It created some great pictures, but I really had to keep a hold of my veil. At one point the videographer was chasing it when it blew out of my hair! We don’t tend to take ourselves very seriously and that seems to have come through in our photos.

Our wedding day was definitely one of the best days of my life. We had so much fun and enjoyed a great party. I just wish we could do it over and over again!

      Thank you – I’ve recently listed my dress to sell. I’m a wee bit sad about it but I feel its wasted just sitting in the cupboard – someone else needs to get some pleasure out of it!

    I love both pairs of shoes, the customisation on your trainers is lovely. I had Cala lilies as my bouquet too, they are beautiful flowers. Great pictures, looks like it was a wonderful day. #kcacols

    This is lovely, and your photos look perfect. I hope that you enjoyed writing this post, to bring back all your happy memories but also to share your day. I don’t often read many wedding posts, and I’ve found it really refreshing. It’s bought back memories of our special which is coming up to 3 years next week, and makes me think that I want to go and check out our wedding album. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

    Such lovely photos, you look gorgeous! And I love your blinged up shoes for the reception! I wore flip flops as we popped over to the beach after my wedding ceremony, they had letters on the bottom that wrote “just married” on the sand! x #KCACOLS

      I was originally looking for some Nike high-ups but found the BKs for a tenner in Sports Direct – I had to have them!
