“Marriage is about being trusting, giving and willing to change. It’s about working together, and being stronger together. It’s about knowing you have security and that you have found the love of your life.”Lara and Charlie
What a treat this summer has been! After such a very long time waiting for restrictions to ease and ceremonies to restart, the past three months have been such wild and gorgeous fun. I’ve absolutely loved travelling all over Scotland to lead a beautiful diversity of ceremonies in grand hotels and on beaches, up mountains and by rivers, in woodlands and private gardens.
Last week, it was an extra special honour to be able to declare Lara and Charlie married at the lovely Maitlandfield House Hotel right next to where I live in East Lothian.
When I met with Charlie and Lara to plan their ceremony, they told me they’d like an unfussy, short, meaningful ceremony with a light, joyful vibe that reflected in their words, “their goofy sense of humour.” They wanted the ceremony to be the start of a fun, relaxed day with their closest friends and family.
Leading Lara and Charlie’s sweet, intimate, funny ceremony was an absolute pleasure, and while they didn’t bring their eight chickens, Kelly the hamster and Spike the cat to the ceremony, it was great that their much-loved and very important dog, Troy, could be there.
Happy one week married, Charlie and Lara! Thanks for inviting me to be a part of your day. It was a lot of fun planning your ceremony with you and I am so glad it was all you wished it to be. Wishing you so much love and happiness, and many wonderful adventures, for your future together.
