Siobhan is Scottish and Alex is English. Yet they fit together like thistle and English roses, simply perfect. When I woke up on a Saturday morning in Edinburgh to find that the sun was shining I knew it would be a cracker of a wedding day. And it was.
From Siobhan’s parents house, where nervousness was beaten by a whole lot of laughter, we went to the beautiful little Cramond Kirk, followed by a reception at Hopetoun House. It was my first time in Scotland. And I got rewarded with a lot of very typical Scottish things – from a massive queue at the (first ever in Scotland!) local Krispy Kreme, a whole load of men in skirts, bag pipes everywhere you look to haggis and oysters as appetizers. The haggis came with a yoghurt lavender honey dip and if that isn’t enough to make you believe that it was utterly delicious then I can’t help you.
With such amazing families and friends it really wasn’t hard for us to feel welcomed and a big thank you goes to Siobhan and Alex for taking such good care of us and to Anna Clarke as my superb second photographer. Congratulations, Siobhan and Alex, what a perfect way to start your new life together. I’ll be back in Scotland for some deep fried Mars bars, haggis and that beautiful sunshine you get there.
