Real Life Scottish wedding: Cramond Kirk, followed by Barnbougle Castle, Edinburgh

Lucy & Rupert

Magic, Sparkle and Love

Magic, Sparkle and Love – 3 words which sum up Lucy and Rupert’s wedding day.

These two were among the few who set a wedding date for 2020 and stuck to it. Yes the plans changed slightly along the way (think plan A, plan B…) but in the end celebrating their wedding in the spectacular Barnbougle Castle with their closest family and friends was nothing short of perfect and they wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Lucy and Rupert you two just make us smile with your approach to life. You clearly love each other to bits and your warmth and care towards family and friends is so evident for all to see. We love that being able to call each other husband and wife was so important to you in a year which has delivered so much disappointment.

And as that rainbow burst through while we were on the beach – wow! Surely that will always be a reminder that hope and love wins through.

Thank you for letting us tell your wedding story. It made the end to our 2020 pretty spectactular.

"Our favourite moment was the time in the car driving back to Barnbougle Castle, through the estate for the first time. Not only was it the first time as a married couple but the first time seeing the venue together. One perk of Covid-19 wedding planning was having a surprise moment like that together. And how can we forget the rainbow on the beach?"
