How long was your courtship? Bryan & Danella’s must be one of the longest ever! They first met in ‘a Discotheque’ (look it up) in August 1983 when Danella was doing her best to avoid the ‘slow’ dances, but Bryan found her hiding in a dark corner, and as the music stopped, he was rewarded […]
Scene One, EXT. A formal garden in St. Andrews A group of sharp dressed men walk to camera But these dapper dudes are not Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange and Mr. Pink: they’re Lee, Sean, groom Craig, and his brother, ‘protein shake enthusiast’, Rorry. Cut to INT, where a pensive Laura awaits bridesmaids Michelle and Louise and of course, her […]
I loved how Katrina and Andrew’s ‘unplugged wedding ceremony’ began. I told the guests they wanted to see their faces not their phones, and then their friends Lizzie and Jamie gave us a lovely version of ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ for Katrina’s walk down the aisle. They both came with a big team: Katrina had Jen, Amy, Natasha, not one but […]
Jade and Michael did a lovely thing in their ceremony. They asked their parents and grandparents the BIG question: What’s the secret to a long and happy marriage?

Kirstie and Gary didn’t have a wedding party: it was more like a wedding army, but their six bridesmaids and seven best men somehow managed to squeeze in beside them in the Long Gallery at Balbirnie House. After the groom’s nephew-to-be, Jack, took the rings to the back of the room so […]
I don’t give prizes, but if I did, Laura would definitely have got my 2017 Award for the Most Original Entrance of a Bride… Her guests were at least as surprised as I was… To see a real fire-engine, sirens wailing, bells clanging, thundering up the narrow road to Kinkell Byre. Inside it […]
Can a byre be more magical than a castle? The place was absolutely rammed. There must have been about 130 guests and the atmosphere was electric. before we started, I asked the guests their eyes not their iPhones, and then in came Alana, with her twin sister Lisa, and her mum, Fiona. Then Luke’s oldest friend […]
We would definitely recommend a humanist ceremony to anyone we know and we have done so on a few occasions since our wedding.
