The festive season wedding was a brilliant synthesis of the formal and the personal – the perfect mix. Kerry looked elegant and stunning in a figure-hugging dress with a multi-layered train which caught the eye of every single guest and held it. The whole day had the warm feeling we associate with Christmas running throughout it, and the effect even seemed to rub off on the weather gods as the heavy rain stayed off for (almost) the whole afternoon.

The theme continued throughout,with Santa greeting guests as they arrived and the congregation heartily singing Christmas carols as the newly-weds signed the register after a beautiful, personal and moving service.

Personal touches were woven into the fabric of the day – even down to the couple’s Mini, which they left in, having been decorated by the ushers, and a special guest in the form of their Bassett hound joining the party at the reception. Add in crackling log fires and the warm opulent setting of the Loch Green House Hotel and you have the recipe for a perfect Yuletide marriage.
