On a beautiful spring day in Edinburgh, guests gathered together to celebrate the marriage of Siobhán and David.
Siobhán prepared at her parent’s home with the assistance of Lucy Gourlay make-up artist. The morning was full of emotional moments and special touches.
The boys prepared at the couples’ home in the centre of Edinburgh and Siobhán had also organised the boys on the morning …and she wasn’t even there!
The ceremony was scheduled for 2.30pm and the boys arrived right on time at 2.00pm looking very handsome. The ceremony was prepared within the Kings Hall for 120 guests with an abundance of hurricane lamps, candles and purple orchids by Planet Flowers. The theme was set to be elegant with purple and a little sparkle!
The stunning Bride arrived in an exquisite Maggie Sottero gown from Emma Roy with her hair whisked up into a classic loose bun. The bouquet was made up of white calla lilies and lily of the valley, which smelt beautiful.
Siobhán walked down the aisle to the accompanyment of a modern version of Ave Maria which was sung by Ashley White. On arrival to the alter the Bride and Groom exchanged a quick giggle and were then married by the entertaining and caring humanist – Ivan Middleton. The ceremony was full of fun and laughter and the signing of the registry was accompanied by an accapella version of Caledonia by Ashley which was close the couple hearts.
Once they were announced husband and wife they danced their way up the aisle to a jazz number by Paolo Nutini and straight into a waiting car which whisked them off to Queen Street Gardens for some quiet time together and photographs with Alan and Jackie Rankine.
Meanwhile guests sipped champagne and ate canapés in the Library Bar of The George Hotel. Following the quick return of the bridal couple and some group photos up on the Panorama Terrace, The George team promptly prepared the Kings Hall for dinner which looked stunning.
Following dinner there was a Candy Buffet set up for all guests to enjoy, this was a surprise to the guests and provided much amusement to all!
The Bride and Groom then took to the dance floor following their cake cutting and performed an elegant two step waltz to the amasement of their friends and family. The ballroom looked beautiful with candles flickering all around, complemented by purple and gold up lighters throughout the room.
So after a fantastic wedding day full of love and laughter……….. they lived happily after!
