A joyful Wedding in East Lothian: “I love you more than I did yesterday …”

Charlotte and Andrew’s Wedding at the stunning Colstoun House was a day of love, togetherness, family and friends.

With their beautiful rescue dog, Goose, and an intimate circle of their closest family and friends, Andrew and Charlotte gathered in the gloriously autumnal Colstoun polytunnel.

Their wider circle of family and friends joined the celebrations on Zoom. We successfully managed to shrink the geographical distances so that everyone felt an important and connected part of the ceremony.

Two friends described, over Zoom, the hilarious story of how Charlotte and Andrew first met (it was all thanks to a pair of size 9 trainers).

Then Charlotte and Andrew shared the secret reasons why they love one another, to much laughter and happy tears.

They exchanged personal ‘toasts to each other’ that they had written especially for their ceremony.

Then shared joint vows before exchanging wedding rings.

I love you more than I did yesterday.

A friend read, in Gaelic, an Irish poem she had written for Charlotte and Andrew. And the gathering cheered as the newly-married couple made their way into the sunshine.

Plans might not have unfolded according to Charlotte and Andrew’s original wishes (given all that is going on in the world) but everything about this vibrant, joyful, love-filled day was perfect.

Charlotte and Andrew, wishing you so many heartfelt congratulations. Thank you so much for trusting me with your ceremony. I’ve loved every minute of being your celebrant.

A shout out to the folk behind the scenes:

Wonderful to meet Simon from Simon’s Studio Photography – thank you for sharing these stunning photos.
