Jen & James’ wedding at Hopetoun House was a colourful Scottish & Welsh fusion with dragons in abundance. It was great fun from start to finish. Our studio is based in a converted stable, attached to Hopetoun House, so we know the house and the grounds extremely well. We see it in all weathers, at all times of year and have photographed weddings for 2 people to over 200 people. On Jen & James’ wedding day the weather was glorious.
Jen & James chose a beautiful Humanist Ceremony, conducted by Juliet Wilson of The Humanist Society of Scotland.
James’ brothers provided some unique entertainment during the ceremony by singing their version of “I Rely on you” by Hovis Presley.
Jen’s niece was their flower girl, but wasn’t too keen to accept the offer of a kiss from her paige boy cousin….
Fabulous food, including the tasty canapés were created by Heritage Portfolio, and the incredible cake by Truly Scrumptious Designer Cakes. A real treat for all was provided by James’ Granny who wasn’t able to be at the wedding, so she sent her recipe for Welsh Cakes – they were delicious!
The evening closed with rousing sounds of tribal pipes and drums from (the slightly scary looking) Clanadonia.
Jen & James, all their guests and us had a fantastic time on what was a perfect day…… A&J x
