Ian was my next door neighbour!
I am 27, Ian is 40
In Las Vegas over a very hungover breakfast!
I had a hummer, private screening of Dirty Dancing with bottomless glasses of wine and nibbles, then a huge meal for 30 and drinks and dancing! Ian had a great meal in a very exclusive venue in Edinburgh then the usual stag shenannigans!
With most of the main decisions!
Caroline Castigliano, Edinburgh. Amazing service and amazing styles.
They both wore brushed stell coloured prom dresses from Coast, which were altered to make them fit perfectly and add a bit of underskirting.
All work charcoal grey kilts and Ian wore a slightly different one.
Church of Scotland service.
In the Great Hall in Dundas Castle, South Queensferry, Scotland
Marquee in the grounds of Dundas Castle.
75 during the day and 250 at night.
Black, White and Silver
The flowers were white and silver birch was used.
Yes, Soundtrack to our wedding CD’s with all our favourite songs on that was played during dinner. This also included songs used throughout the wedding.
Lillium florist in Edinburgh. Totally amazed at what Fiona did as I really was a bit clueless about flowers!
All Scottish menu, Haggis, Potatoes, Steak etc.
Too good to eat in Edinburgh. Four layers all different flavours.
String quartet during the day and a big band at night.
First night in the Castle and honeymoon in Vegas. All booked with Bellagio in Vegas directly.
The whole thing. Breathtaking and my fairytale come true.
Too many to mention, mostly caused by stress and not due to any actual nightmares!
Wouldn’t do anything differently, but my advice is do everything for you and your hubby to be. Don’t do it for others, as you will always regret things. Get the photos that you want, not just to please your family! Harsh but soooooooo worth it in the end!
