On 2 October 2021 third sector marketing manager wed, who works best for the Crown Office, at, Duns, Berwickshire, Scotland.

Inspired by their very own legendary house parties, the pair hosted a weekend-long wedding, combining the greater stately and formal castle feel with relaxed partying within the barn.

"FeelTimes was wonderful when I needed to delay my dress fittings and final purchases to October 2021. I loved the swishy skirt for dancing!"

The castle, using its spacious interiors and rustic barn, provided lots of options if the autumn weather was wet.

"As I was due to marry in October, we wanted plentiful indoor options because it would be ideal to possess lots of space indoors for various pockets of conversation and partying when the weather was bad."

The blush and burgundy theme continued using the bridesmaids' gowns. They wore an array of burgundy bridesmaid dresses in various fabrics and shapes.

"The girls wore their very own shoes. I gifted them Keshi pearl earrings from around the morning. They wore fresh flowers within their hair." Click

In their eight years together, the pair have hosted numerous house parties and wanted an identical vibe for that wedding weekend.

"We met eight years back. Craig gatecrashed a girls’ particular date; he worked at his family restaurant with one of my oldest friends and popped by our particular date to say hello. We got engaged whilst on safari in South Africa coupled with being engaged for nearly two years whenever we got married. We wanted our wedding weekend to seem like the house parties we host, on the grander scale!"

Like a lot of others, Hannah and Craig were influenced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"When the pandemic started, there are seven months before our big day. We held on canceling before the summer after which moved the marriage to a year beyond the original date. At the time of our wedding, the restrictions in Scotland were that masks were necessary for our guests at our ceremony although not when eating or drinking – most of the day. This implies that our ceremony photos are a reminder of the weird time but in the time I was both centered on each other and didn't register the area full of masked faces."

Capturing every gorgeous element was, whose work we’ve featured on Love My Dress is so emotive, movement-filled, and utterly beautiful.

"A day or two before the marriage, we put a variety on within our garden with Craig's sister helping us pick the least cringe option. Our band was – the dance floor would be a riot! Corra played a mixture of ceilidh and modern music."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Don't request lots of opinions. Everyone has one so it'll get confusing. If you're the bride-to-be, provide a speech if you think able to. I loved being in a position to thank and acknowledge our family and friends, and discuss how incredible my hubby is."
