Ditte, from First Light Wedding Photography talks me through this gorgeous Scottish wedding that she photographed last summer. Lovely photos of the bride’s wedding dress from Pronovias and shoes by Emmy (- one of my favourite designers. In fact I wanted Emmy shoes for my wedding but I couldn’t quite stretch to that budget so I had to make do with a pair from Kurt Geiger!)
“The wedding took place on 31st July in Scotland near Duns, Berwickshire on Belita’s aunt and uncle’s farm. From the first time we met Belita and Richard we loved their closeness and the way they just make each other complete. They had such a vivid idea of how they wanted their wedding day to look. They had chosen a Midsummer Nights’ Dream theme to their day with lots of gorgeous touches. The attention to detail really blew us away!”
The flowers were by a family friend, Fiona, from Northumberland. I think that they are absolutely wonderful – she doesn’t have a company name (or website) so unfortunately I am not able to say anything more than I’m very impressed Fiona!
This has to be one of my favourite photos from their weddings….
Place names were luggage tags, attached to napkins with silk string. Each name was beautifully written in calligraphy by a friend of the family.
Rather than displaying a table plan, the couple had hung up little envelopes with guests’ names on them that also showed which table guests were seated at. The envelopes also served as favours, as inside each one was a lottery slip for that night’s lottery – Love that idea!
Flowers on the tables were displayed in old teapots, collected at flea markets by the couple.
Belita, the bride said, “Meeting Ditte and Chris was an unexpected bonus of getting married! We couldn’t have asked for two more pleasant, professional or talented people to photograph our wedding; they listened to exactly what we wanted, were on top of everything (including all the things we hadn’t thought of) and were faultless on the day. We will treasure the beautiful photos they took of our wedding for our whole lives.”
A big thanks to Ditte for sending me this gorgeous wedding to feature on my wedding blog and congratulations to Belita & Rich on a wonderful day. Do be sure to check out First Light Wedding Photography for more information on this fab scottish photography duo…..
