Claire & Euan’s Wedding, Hopetoun House, South Queensferry



The first time I met Claire and Euan was on a gorgeous sunny afternoon in Glasgow. Niels had already met them and warned me how lovely they were… But then I got to spend the afternoon with them – capturing some photographs of them and just getting to know them…  From the beginning we both knew the wedding of these two was going to be so special.


Claire and Euan – you two are so much fun to be with. Your wedding day was fantastic – soo many special moments and lots of giggles. We love how real you are with each other (and with other people) and how tightly you held onto each other during your ceremony.


“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?”

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.

“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”

“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”

“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Sunshine, rain and laughter galore…

Louise and Pete’s was the kind of wedding you just wouldn’t want to leave: the sun shone, the rain came, but regardless the love was abundant. Oh and did we mention the food? Probably the best beef ever!

From our first coffee with Niamh and Sam we were hooked. These two were made for each other, without a doubt.

Talk lots , Listen lots, Love lots

These two are the loveliest, most easygoing couple. Karen’s smile would light up any room and Stevie’s chuckle is infectious.
