Hello lovelies :) Before the afternoon runs away and we're into relaxing for the evening and weekend ahead, I had to share this wonderfully colourful wedding with you. 

Fizz and Denny tied the knot on 7th September last year at Aickwood Tower on the Scottish Borders.  The couple met via match.com in 2009 and got engaged while on holiday in India in 2011.  Their wedding was a fabulously bright and cheerful celebration – I love how the bride handmade and hand embroidered all the pretty decor and details to help create a country fete style atmosphere.

“My brother walked me down the aisle to the sound of ‘For Lovers’ by Pete Doherty & Wolfman. During our ceremony we read a tweaked version of the traditional wedding vows and had the lyrics to ’Lovestrong’ by The Cure as a reading.

Robert Smith of The Cure wrote it for his wife on their wedding day and the song means a lot to us both.”

Fizz chose to wear a 50's style gown by Dolly Couture that she purchased in New York. She also originally purchased a veil but decided not to wear it in the end.

Words of Wedded Wisdom…

“Get as much done in the early stages so on the lead up to the wedding you can chill.”

  1. WHAT a colourful day! I LOVE it. I just adore Fizz’s dress and awesome shoes. the 50s styling is just gorgeous, what an era (best clothes, best music)! I really love the tiny attention to details, the lovely colourful wee hearts hanging from the ceiling, the wee napkins and the favours. Simply gorgeous! And well done to team Mack Photography – some fabby shots. Congrats Fizz and Denny
    PS every wedding needs lemon drizzle cake #nomnomnom
