Emma & Michael’s highland fling

April 29, 2010

I’m always on the lookout for show-stopping real-life weddings for the magazine, so I was really excited when I stumbled across the blog of Scottish-based photographers Lillian & Leonard, who shot Emma & Michael’s wedding pictured below (featured in the Oct/Nov issue of Wedding). There was something so fresh and unique about the look of their day, which was held at a remote artist’s studio called Crear in Kilberry, Argyll (a stunning stretch of the Scottish coast that I’ve just visited on holiday). When I interviewed Emma, I wasn’t surprised to find out she’s a textile designer – her flair for colour and textures at the wedding says it all!

The paper pom poms are so effective and Emma and a friend did all the floral displays themselves with blooms sourced from a flower market, which they arranged in pretty teacups and colourful tea tins. I really loved the fact she wore a yellow dress, too (in case you’re wondering, it’s by Nicole Miller).

One of my favourite ideas was the Polaroid guestbook, where friends and family held up a gold frame and had their pictures snapped. They then wrote a personal message to Emma & Michael, and pegged it to a ribbon on the wall. But the real clincher was their adorable greyhound who appears in his own portrait (I’ve got a serious soft spot for dogs!) I never get bored of looking at this wedding – it looked so relaxed and  fun. Hope it inspires you too!

  1. Oh my goodness. This wedding looks stunning. I like the decor, with the pops of colour and the frame/polaroid/flowers idea is brilliant! Thanks for sharing.
