Hello folks. What better way to start the week than with a quirky, open air, Scottish Tipi wedding! I have to confess; I have a real soft spot for nuptials north of the border. Scotland’s wild, rugged, countryside and historic, cultured cities offer a wealth of spectacular backdrops for weddings, plus the light in this special part of the world has a quality seldom found elsewhere. Furthermore, the rules and regulations governing alfresco weddings in Scotland are much more relaxed than those south of Hadrian’s Wall; allowing couples to make the most of the scenery and tie the knot wherever they choose.
Audrey and Andrew became husband and wife on the 1st of August 2015 at The Falkland Estate in Fife, Scotland. The couple held their humanist ceremony outside, in a ruined chapel, followed by a reception in a giant hat tipi overlooking the estate’s acres of lush green hills and ancient woodland. We are delighted that one of our Little Book For Brides members took these photographs – the wonderfully talented Paul Joseph.
“The setting of our wedding was so beautiful, there was very little need to overcomplicate things. My family and I are very creative so it was our chance to experiment and make things. We didn’t want a theme or to be too colour coordinated. Andrew wanted to wear tartan and I love neon colours so we incorporated both of these elements.”
Audrey wore ‘Harriet’ by House of Mooshki; a short tea length wedding dress, which she purchased from Pretty Woman in Edinburgh. I love the gown’s strapless silk satin bodice and tulle layered ruffle skirt! Her three bridesmaids looked fabulous in ivory ASOS skirts paired with silver, sequinned tops from Coast. Continuing the neon theme, each ‘maid wore a pair of brightly coloured shoes.
Our couple’s big day was captured by Paul Joseph Photography. I love the sense of joy and fun which emanates from these beautiful images…
“Paul Joseph Photography were outstanding! They are the champion of all wedding photographers and one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Paul Joseph captured every tiny little moment, look and glance perfectly. We didn’t know they were there half the time and they were loads of fun. Our photos are beautiful and a brilliant record of our day.”
