We first met Nicola and John when we photographed John’s sister’s wedding four years ago – Nicola was a bridesmaid then and John an usher. When they contacted us about their own wedding, we were really excited at the prospect of seeing lots of familiar friendly faces again.
So we set off from Edinburgh one rainy morning, driving all the way to Dornoch for what promised to be a brilliant highland wedding.
Nicola’s day started at her parents’ house with her maids and family.
Nicola’s friend had made the bridesmaids hairbands as well as Nicola’s hairpiece.
After a wet and cloudy morning, the clouds lifted and the sun came out in the afternoon as we arrived back at Midfearn.
The sunny autumn afternoon meant that speeches could take place outside.
Is this the most glamourous Grandmother-of-the-Bride ever?
The wedding cake was made by one of Nicola’s friends.
Small gold-lined envelopes with guests’ names on them contained notes with their tablename.
Luggage tag place cards were tied around wedding guests’ napkins.
Nicola and John, we so loved capturing your big day – thank you for sharing it with us.
We hope the rest of your honeymoon goes well and you come back with lots of photos and happy memories.
We wish you a lifetime of happiness together and look forward to showing you the rest of the photos soon!
