We met 9 years ago when I was 14 he was 16. We met randomly through his cousin and have been inseparable ever since.
I am 23 and Willie is 25.
It was so not romantic but the best I could have asked for. Willie took me back to the spot (an alleyway!) where he first asked me out when I was 14.
Yes. Willie went to Newcastle and I went with all my girlies to Tenerife for the weekend!
He didn’t do very much but he did choose the first dance song and choose the tartan his side of the wedding party was wearing. He helped make the decisions but I did all the hard work.
I didn’t use it to plan my wedding but used it to purchase alot of gifts and materials for the big day.
I bought alot online and also visted the Glasgow store to buy the odd bits I forgot about.
My dress was made by Maggie Sottero and I bought it from a shop in Edinburgh called Emma Roy. The staff were fantastic there it was such a lovely experience.
Yes. I had my best friend as my chief and had my sister and my cousin as bridesmaids also. They wore lovely pale pink strapless dresses. I also had my cousin as a flowergirl.
He choose his Uncle as his best man and my cousin and a friend as his ushers. He also had his Nephew as a Pageboy.
I did not want a religious ceremony but had to if I wanted to get married at the castle.
We had the ceremony at Craigmillar Castle in Edinburgh.
We had our reception at The Carlton Hotel, Edinburgh.
The boys had a Hummer Limo and I had a lovely Rolls Royce Silver Cloud in Ivory.
We had 75 guests during the day and 150 at night.
Yes we tried to stick to a pale pink colour and for the likes of flowers, invitations, favours and the cake.
Everything was white but we had lovely pink ribboned favours on the tables.
Yes we gave them a lottery ticket in a lovely keep sake white card with pale pink ribbon round it.
We had our flowers done by a friend of my mum who was a florist. They were pink roses.
Starter – Cock a leekie soup Main – Chicken Roulade stuffed with haggis Dessert – strawberry shortcake
We had it made by a shop called “Barbour Confectiones” it was a three tier made up of Fruit, Madeira and choclate sponge.
We had a piper at the castle, a piano player during the meal and a disco at night.
We spent our first night at the hotel and then flew off to Las Vegas, Hawaii and New York having booked it through Thomas Cook.
Walking down the aisle standing next to Willie and him saying “You look beautiful”.
I wouldn’t stress so much before the big day. You realise there is nothing to stress about.
