Real Life Wedding: Edinburgh Garden followed by the Kimpton Hotel

Laura & John

A little bit of perfect

What could be more perfect than an Edinburgh garden wedding?

I mean when your garden has a lawn that was almost designed for outdoor parties it would be rude not to!

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 are soo good together and their wedding day, despite all the Covid madness, came together into a day that we can only describe as more than a little bit of perfect.

Mr and Mrs Ferguson – you did it!!! You have resilience, patience and positivity in bucket-loads and we are in awe of how you’ve coped with so many alternative plans this year. Yes it wasn’t quite the day you’d originally planned (with all the people you’d planned) but in the end it was nothing short of brilliant and we feel so privileged to have been a part of it. Even the weather was on your side.

Cannot wait to catch-up and re-live the whole day… oh and start planning for the next party at Ballogie!

Planning a Wedding through Covid-19

JP and Laura have been incredible throughout all their wedding planning, despite the set-backs. Don’t even get us started on the nonsense rules (not political statements here!) but the fact they kept focused on the important things, like why they were getting married and the importance of their family and friends we’ve no doubt is what got them through it.

It was also lovely that two of the bridesmaids (who were on the other side of the world) were part of the whole thing:  from prep, with their matching PJs, through to the ceremony, with their dresses on. They even nailed a hilarious (and emotional) bridesmaid speech. Technology is truly great.

Be encouraged if you’re planning a wedding day that looks different to what you imagined. If you’re anything like Laura and JP it will be perfect in the end. Here’s a few of our top tips on planning a wedding through a global pandemic.

This Signet Library wedding was just filled with so much love and so much fun. Long overdue but magical in every part.
