With love from Scotland… part two

Morning everyone! We’ve more love from Scotland on the blog today, and it’s smiles all the way: if you’re easily shocked look away before we get to the bit where the best men raise their kilts… (I’m only joking)

There are some really beautiful wedding photos here: Andy and Bec had a beautiful wedding reception and it’s really great to see smiles on all the wedding guests’ faces – as well as the sheer delight from new husband and wife Andy and Bec.

real wedding blog (1)The wedding reception venue is Dunsley Hall Hotel in Kinver – a luxurious boutique hotel with a rich history and a commitment to the environment I really admire.

real wedding blog (6)insert your own caption here folks…

real wedding blog (7)There must be such pride in dressing formally the Scottish way! Andy and his Dad both had kilt pins and cufflinks from their own clan.

real wedding blog (9)Bec and her bridesmaids look beautiful. The wedding theme was pretty in shades of pink and I love those shrugs the younger girls are wearing.

real wedding blog (10)Tables are set so prettily, and with all the female wedding guests receiving a lovely gift in the form of a little favour from the fabulous Jo Malone.

real wedding blog (12)The rings… A beautiful contrast in styles makes for a lovely combination!

real wedding blog (13)The wedding rings are both engraved, Andy’s in (and I guess… celtic script?)

real wedding blog (14)Wedding photographer Adam describes the speeches as an emotional rollercoaster. Andy and his best men are firemen, which made for some emotional stories. It’s lovely to see every guest loving every word…

and just you wait for the best men’s grand finale!

real wedding blog (20)That’s Bec on the back. 🙂

I’ve been giggling at this picture for days, and I’ve only just noticed the little bridesmaid in the corner of the picture… I imagine that’s one of the funniest sights she’ll have ever seen!

real wedding blog (21)Bec and Andy are honoured and delighted… and what a reaction to catch on camera. If you’re not grinning too… well, go back and read the blog post more slowly. I can’t keep the smile from my face!

There’s a little more for you on Friday – an extra treat in the form of an inspiration board from Bec and Andy’s wedding day. They did a fantastic job of creating a romantic and pretty wedding colour scheme in soft pastel pinks. There were plenty of details pointing back to Andy’s Scottish heritage as well, so I couldn’t resist creating a wedding inspiration board with the wedding photos.

Thank you once again to English Wedding sponsor Adam Johnson from ARJ Photography. Adam is based in Manchester and mainly shoots weddings in the Greater Manchester and Cheshire area. To find out more visit or see Adam’s English Wedding Showcase Page.

Pop back for more tomorrow 🙂
