We remember the first time we met Marie and Matt all those months ago and their dreams for their Edinburgh wedding… we instantly knew it was going to be a cracking day and it was all that and more…We loved hearing about all their ideas throughout their planning. These two put so much thought and detail into their day to make sure that all their guests had a ball as they joined them for a weekend up in Edinburgh. And boy did they!
Marie and Matt chose a soft vintage theme to their day, holding their celebrations at the iconic Edinburgh Castle followed by the Scotsman Hotel, adding a good dose of Scottish-ness into their day. We loved all Marie’s vintage details, from her dress and accessories through to the girls shoes and the lace and bunting decorating the chairs and the Scotsman Hotel. And those handmade stitched name places – all made by bridesmaid Lucy – beautiful. We were even given our own – check out Facebook to see these. Thank guys – so thoughtful.
There were a few firsts on the day two… the first time we’ve ever had the Red Arrows do a fly past (just for Marie and Matt of course!), the first time these two became husband and wife – in fact the first time Matt became Marie’s wife – with a few giggles over that one… and the first time the new steps at the Scotsman steps were opened – just in time for Marie and Matt’s wedding.
Marie and Matt thank you for finding us. We were so delighted to be part of your wedding and have loved getting to know you two. You treated everyone to an amazing day and weekend too. Here’s some of our favourite photographs. Can’t wait to show you them all on your next Edinburgh jaunt. You two rock!
This was the moment when Marie was invited to take Matt as her new “wife” a slight faux pas on the by the registrar! Loved it!
The Scotsman Steps which join The Scotsman Hotel to Waverly Station and were just opened on the previous day – each of the 104 steps has been made from a different colour of marble and has been restored as part of a £250,000 restoration project. How fab do they look? We had to do some pictures of Marie and Matt on them…
At night, before their first dance, Marie popped on a stunning necklace and her hair done again. Soo gorgeous…
An outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the bay in the middle of one of the hottest Scottish summers is one of life’s gifts (and perfect planning on the part of Helen and James)
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.
