Serena & Doug’s Wedding at Hopetoun House, South Queensferry



Happy 2011 to you all! We are soo excited about the year to come. There are beautiful weddings ahead, new locations to explore and one or two exciting projects up our sleeve – keep up with us via Facebook, twitter and the Blue Sky blog for all the latest chat!

 

We have some looovely posts to share with you over the next few days. Fantastic people, top spots and some great wedding ideas.

 

To kick off 2011, we’re delighted to share Serena and Doug’s stunning winter wedding. Remember all that snow? (In fact as we look out our window in Edinburgh today we still have snow!). The snow just added to the magical winter wonderfulness of this wedding at Hopetoun House.

 

These two are a great couple, their friends and family are so much fun; the warmth and buzz of friends catching up over the champagne reception was infectious – we had a blast! It was also special for us to see a few familiar Blue Sky faces…

 

Serena and Doug – we knew that your plans would work perfectly in spite of the unknown snow-factor! The family involvement throughout (especially the Munro family band) made it all so personal and little Archie was a star…

 

Your party was immense. The dancefloor was rockin’ and we have never seen a ‘love train’ in the ballroom of Hopetoun House before – even looking at the shots makes us smile. Truly awesome! The Fabulous Shire Boys created top sounds and their chat was great as they taught lots of non-celiedh dancers to celeidh dance. Loved it!

 

Enjoy some highlights of your beautiful winter wedding.

 

Speak soon,
