Lucy & Dave’s Wedding. Homemade Wedding cake, skis and more!

♥ part one ♥

Lucy had been keeping me in the loop in the weeks and days leading up to their Wedding, and I knew that there were going to be some lovely little homade made touches that would make this a really special day.

I don’t always get the time to include groom preparations. But, as it happened Dave was staying overnight in the village where I live, so it seemed like too good an opportunity to miss. So I called in on the boys for a quick photo shoot (see here) before heading off down to Edinburgh for the Bridal Preparations. I was greeted with sights and sounds of chatter, make up brushes, hair pins and hairspray – I also had the pleasure of meeting  Sharon Webster and Monica George at ‘Made – up‘ – love seeing skilled people at work- they made it look so effortless!  There were a few indications of what was to follow, with some of Dave’s printed cards, and special miniature whisky bottles with their Wedding designs on the label – Dave works in his family run Printing firm – so he had insider skills that were clearly put to good use!

When we arrived in the driveway, we were greeted firstly by the stunning spectacle of Dundas Castle itself. Which was quickly followed by the most friendly staff – who all there ready to help from word go, to keep things running smoothly – including a staff member offering to take my car round to the side car park – which was ever so helpful – meant that I could get on with the photography!

Going to somewhere like Dundas Castle is so so exciting – there is so much to see – I could easily have spent a day just wondering around immersed in all the details – the place is oozing with them – but there was a Wedding to be focusing on – I was glad to have had a few moments to get a few shots around the Castle.

As the day progressed, the cutest turquoise Campervan arrived, and out stepped the Groom & best men. Homade Wedding cake, with the cutest little personalised ceramic figures…ooh I could talk on and on – I’ll stop  – you want to see pictures right? That is what you came here for!! 🙂 OK one last thing – don’t forget to check out Lucy’s home made mountain range cakes, complete with little payer flags and of course those wee figures modelled on Dave & Lucy themselves!

Gosh what a beautiful wedding.

I love the picture of her looking back over shoulder. She looks stunning.

gasp – I don’t know how I missed your comment – thank you so much Anna xxxx

lovely coverage Zoe – particularly like the one of the bride in the mirror with those gorgeous curtains! Also a nice sense of candiness about everything. Well shot.

Thats my fav too Andy – thank you x

Loving all these details Zoe, likewise looking forward to the next installment

thank you Sandy (somewhat behind in replying there!

Wow Zoe! What a grand venue! You’ve captured the atmosphere of it really well and I particularly like the shot of the ‘lads’!

Got lots more lad shots – finding it hard to choose which ones to blog 🙂 Thanks for the lovely comment!

Love these images Zoe, you’ve really captured the couple’s personality. So many personal touches through their wedding day and the images really show that off! I loved helping Lucy with her dress and accessories so it’s great to see the complete look on the day – glad she obviously had such a good fun day! Think I want a camper van now….

Ohh thank you Rachel! I remember everyone being knocked out by Lucy’s dress- and the hair accessory was just perfect with that dress – like everyone said – just like a twenties movie star – Yes, I have romantic ideas of eloping in a Camper van – or at the very least (maybe more appropriate as I am already married!!) going off on some sort of fab holiday with all my kids, touring Scottish islands…and castles! Sigh…..

I’ve added your name to the credits above Rachel 🙂

Ooooh lovely venue – what a great place to shoot. Some gorgeous shots on there young lady. Well done you! x

🙂 oooh – don’t know what to like more – your lovely comments, or being called a young lady…. I think I like them both equally!! 🙂 thank you Shelly! x

Lovely shots, and very atmospheric – look like a great couple and a great day.

The clutch bag shot is fantastic.

It was a lovely day – and I can’t praise the staff at Dundas Castle enough – so attentive and genuine and happy – ah yes – the clutch bag – Lucy’s mum was very cool – up for a quick pose with her funky nails and cute clutch bag!

Zoe! Gor.geous! Truly beautiful, I can’t wait for part two!

Aww, thank you so much Ariana <3 Yes – must get part two done (and some housework too!!)
