From the moment we drove down the driveway of the Roxburghe Hotel in Kelso, we had enormous grins on our faces. We knew that we were in for one amazing day of fun, love and and a whole lot of action.
Few brides and grooms would consider holding a sports day the morning of their wedding celebrations, but that’s exactly what the fantastic Claire and Nicholas did. These two had it all planned and we witnessed space-hopper racing, weightlifting, skipping, press-up sessions (and yes, that really is Nicholas, the groom, CLAPPING between press-ups…!) Rock hard!
Everyone totally threw themselves into it… (lycra was encouraged, although not compulsory!) and it was a teeny little bit competitive. Seriously I think some guests had been in training for weeks to prepare! Loved it…
How on earth do you follow that? Well, Claire and Nicholas’ wedding was filled with so much love and laughter that the whole day was one immense day of fun, fun, fun. Topped off with some more spacer-hopper action… look out for this all in Part two – coming next week! We can’t wait…
Much Blue Sky love,

Balmoral Hotel weddings have their own kind of magic. For starters you get to literally have the red carpet rolled out for you and be treated like royalty… and then (perhaps even more special) you get access to enviable rooftop views.
What could be more perfect than getting married in your garden in Edinburgh (especially when your garden has a lawn that was almost designed for outdoor parties)?
To say we’d been looking forward to this wedding for quite a while may well be the biggest understatement of the year.
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.
