Sarah and Simon’s humanist wedding was a wonderfully personal tribute to their love and heartfelt honesty. Imagine yourself whisked away to the green, romantic heart of Ayrshire. Secluded castle with cosy open fires: check. The melodious drone of bagpipes greeting the arrivals: of course. Stuffed birds hidden away at the last minute so as not to creep out the bridal party: double check.
It was really special to be there and to photograph their day. We were moved by Sarah and Simon's speeches which were filled with poignancy and comic touches, and it was a show of great personal warmth that the ceremonial music was performed by the bride’s sister and one of the groom’s men. Personally, we loved when Sarah and Simon's were singing to one another during the ceremony (see above)! Finally, the night was topped off with a high-energy cèilidh in which Sarah distinguish herself by dancing with the best of them in her beautiful, long wedding dress.
We left late in the night, memory cards filled with wonderful wedding photographs, hearts filled with the spirit of Caledonia and with the realisation that, with Simon as proof, some Englishmen can pull of wearing a kilt.
Thanks for sharing your day with us, Sarah and Simon.
