Fiona & Colin - Cockburnspath Parish Church & Macdonald Marine Hotel, North Berwick - Scottish wedding photography
Yesterday we were in beautiful Berwickshire, to capture Fiona & Colin’s wedding celebrations.
The day began at Fiona’s family home, where bridesmaid Eilidh (who also happens to be a make-up artist) was putting the finishing touches to the girls’ make-up.
Fiona was helped into her dress by her mum and, as you can see, she looked absolutely beautiful. It was great to see the reactions from her dad and bridesmaids as they saw her.
Her veil has a fantastic history – originally worn by her great-great-great-great grandmother, it’s 160 years-old and has been worn by all the brides in the family through the generations.
We left the girls to enjoy a glass of champagne, and headed over to Cockburnspath Parish Church. Said to date back to the 1500s, it has an unusual circular tower.
Fiona was accompanied down the aisle by her dad, Reg. Colin said later he felt pretty choked up when he saw his stunning bride for the first time.
A lovely service was conducted by family friend, Anne Lithgow who came out of retirement specially for the occasion.
After some photographs at the church we headed over to North Berwick, where a warm welcome awaited at the Marine Hotel.
During the family photos, baby Robert stole the show with his tartan trews and Nessie slippers!
The hotel is situated in an incredibly scenic area and Fiona & Colin were more than happy to get outside for some photos on the golf course!
The speeches were all very funny and a special mention must go to best man, Grant for his fantastic slideshow.
Fiona & Colin opened the dancing to Jamiroquai and soon had lots of company on the dancefloor. And then it was on with the ceilidh!
As the sun set we popped outside for a few more photos…and what a sunset it was – just breathtaking!
Fiona & Colin – What an amazing day! Thanks for being so fantastic and so appreciative of our way of working. We hope you have a brilliant honeymoon and look forward to catching up when you get back.
