I’ve got lots of laughter lines. Not all of them are due to Alan and Lisa’s wedding, but it was such a happy, fun-filled day, I can’t remember when I’ve smiled more. Their story began seven years ago, and in the ceremony, I took their guests all the way from their first near miss in a pub on … Continue Reading
Thank you for helping to make our day such a success.
Sometimes even before I meet a couple, I get a sense that they’re going to be a lot of fun to work with, and so it was with Becka and Alex. Back in March, they sent me an email that said, “Hiya, We saw you in action at Kate and Mark’s wedding out of town by a lake … Continue Reading
The Signet Library is one of Edinburgh’s most elegant wedding venues. Like the library in the Old Quad of the University of Edinburgh, it was partly designed by William Playfair, and its upstairs gallery was described by George IV as the most beautiful room he’d ever seen.

The guests made and brought all … Continue Reading
I got some lovely cards this Christmas, but my favourite came from Heather and Mike. Unlike normal people, they didn’t send me Jpegs, but instead posted proper photographic prints, with captions hand-written on the back. This one said, “This pretty much sums up the feedback we got on our ceremony! The best endorsement was to … Continue Reading
Julia and Adam got off to a very bad start. He was unbelievably rude to her and she told everyone she knew that he was “the most ignorant person she had ever met in her life!” But despite a series of awkward dates, uncomfortable silences, embarrassing TV appearances and the luminous orange-green mould in Adam’s bread … Continue Reading
Meet Martyn and Allyson! From Leicestershire and the Eastern Seaboard of the USA respectively, they’re a pair of seasoned world travellers who as they put it in their ceremony, ‘cancelled out each other’s effect on the planet’, before discovering and deciding to live in Edinburgh, where one of the places they grew to love was … Continue Reading
