The dress and the suits: Paul & Chelsea, Mayculter house hotel

The dress and the suits: Paul & Chelsea, Mayculter house hotel

I have never photographed the same dress twice! Nope, never. Every bride, in my mind picks the perfect dress for them. I have never thought “Nah, that is not the right dress for you”. Chelsea dress was no different, it was perfect! The amazing Ian Stuart dress with a slight alteration on sleeves was perfect. As for Paul, well, when I seen him at first wearing his Marc Darcy tweed suit, he looked epic. I love a kilt but I have to admit, the tweed suit is making me think about my own wedding and if I should wear a kilt or a tweed suit.

The day was shaping up to be hot and sunny! The weather in April has been unpredictable, one week it was a foot of snow then a couple of days later 20c+ temperatures.

The wedding was at the beautiful Maryculter House hotel and always lovely catching up with the fantastic Peter Walker who recently moved from Meldrum house to Mayculter. The room was set up (Game of thrones theme), the outside seats were full of guests and it was time to go. Chelsea’s own grandfather was marrying them and what a special moment that was, who wonderful to have your own grandfather marry you.

From the start to the very end, they day was wonderful. With amazing food (banquet style) to the evening dancing, it was epic. As surprisingly, with a free bar the whole day. the guests behaved themselves.

Smokey & The Bandit: Adam & Susan Middler, Mayculter House Hotel

Smokey & The Bandit: Adam & Susan Middler, Mayculter House Hotel


I love a themed wedding.  What better way for a couple to show their love for the passions they both share. Adam & Susan certainly did just that with a Smokey and the bandit wedding (for those who do not know who Smokey and the bandit are, click here).  So, how do you create a Smokey & the Bandit wedding?  Simple, spend hours watching the films, own a Trans Am, hire a 1970's american police car and then borrow a friends HUGE American big rig (lorry).

What a laugh we had, when leaving the church in Echt, the cars turned heads and at one point, the big rig, stopped all traffic!  We drove to Maryculter House hotel, holding up all the traffic and once parked, all the guests stood around the cars with the bridal party in the front for the group photo.

It was a beautiful day with wonderful guests, so much dancing in the evening and the perfect couple... What more could you ask for?
