Gemma & Chris’ Wedding, Hopetoun House, South Queensferry, Part 2

And now, part two of the fabulous wedding of Gemma and Chris at Hopetoun House







Gemma and Chris decided to hold the wedding breakfast in The Stables which looked jaw-droppingly beautiful with layer upon layer of texture in floristry, fabric and light…  The detailing was immense, from charcoal grey table clothes, ruffled chair backs through to embroidered linen napkins with Gemma and Chris’ guests names… and the flowers? One word – WOW!












Gemma and Chris’ speeches were fab and got lots of giggles. It was nice to hear Barry thanking Planet Flowers for their great work for Gemma and Chris’ wedding ;–)  Rachel we hope you got your bouquet at the end of the night?













Gemma and Chris had a beautiful guest book which was a Thumb Tree Guest book, asking each guest to “leaf” their thumb print and sign their name. It looked fab and fitted with the theme perfectly (we’d expect nothing less!)



How fab is this cheese cake?





Looking after their guests was really important to these guys and the food, from Heritage Portfolio, as always was delish and presented beautifully – even with home dried leafs on the soup plate to tie into the wedding theme… fab! As for the pistachio custard – Niels reckons he could have eaten a vat of it…









We absolutely adored Gemma’s desert table. Her genius vision came together to look like a work of art and it tasted exquisite with macaroons, cake pops, mini cup cakes, fudge brownie bites and of course Tom’s handmade Scottish tablet. Yummy. Oh and Jed and Beth say thank you for their goody bag (well Jed more than Beth as I think he devoured a little more!!!)










The evening celebrations kicked off with some great dancing… especially from two little people who were rocking the dancefloor…










The detailing wasn’t just saved for inside the Stables, Gemma had planned outside too… so we took full advantage of this and grabbed some stunning night time shots too… wowzers…






And so it ended, with a sparkler farewell to the very new and very happy Mr and Mrs B…




We loved, loved, loved being a part of this ahh-mazing wedding… And how beautiful is their Queensberry album going to be? Can’t wait.


Gemma and Chris, words fail us (almost!) Thank you so much for allowing us to be with you on such an incredible day. We think the world of you and loved being able to capture the creativity, thought, care and love that was so evident throughout your day.


Big Blue Sky love to you,

A little bit of perfect

11 May 2021

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.

Magic, Sparkle and Love

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.

You two were meant to be

24 October 2020

To say Alie and I had been holding out for this wedding would be an understatement…  Emily and Cammy you know how much we adore you (and your families). You two are so clearly meant to be. The world is, without question, a lighter, brighter and more brilliant place for you two being in it.
