A sweet Wedding in East Lothian: “It’s about valuing the little things in life …”

The key to a happy life is equal respect and admiration. It’s about listening to each other and valuing the little things in life; like a hot water bottle in bed after the night shift, cheese on toast after a heavy night on the beers. It’s about the small surprises that we do for each other, and lots of hugs.

Jade & Calum

What a joy it was to declare Jade and Calum married on a stunning April day. After such a long wait and so many shifting plans, it felt even more meaningful to witness these two kindhearted, adventure-loving, wonderful people make their vows to each other.

Their sweet, joyful ceremony took place outside the stunning Orangerie at Dalkeith Country Park with two of their close friends as witness, and all other family and friends very much included through an online recording.

It was glorious.The sun shone as Calum and Jade exchanged personal vows and rings then sealed their Marriage Vows with a Handfasting, each ribbon representing their two families.

The nearby picknickers all gave a gentle round of applause as they were declared married. So lovely!

Congratulations, Calum and Jade! It’s been such a pleasure planning your ceremony with you these past months. Wishing you all the very best for your future together. Thank you so much for trusting me with your ceremony.
