Kirsty and Euan's Wedding at Gilmerton House

This is one of Kirsty and Euan's favourite photos of everyone laughing at something said during the ceremony. It really captures what they hoped to create on their wedding day - a relaxed atmosphere full of love and laughter.

Their wedding took place on a beautiful September day in the grounds of Gilmerton House, a handsome Georgian mansion in the heart of East Lothian.

The couple met through work, and so it was fitting that their colleagues and friends James and Sarah, who have known them as a couple for longer than most people, shared their story with the guests.

Kirsty and Euan chose to symbolise their union with a Handfasting and the ribbons used had special significance as they were made from the Smith and Henderson tartans to symbolise the joining of their families. 

They also chose a lovely reading which celebrates diversity. We each have our own preferences - we like different things and we like different people. "Each To Their Own" we might say. W.H Auden said it more elegantly in the poem ‘Foxtrot from a Play’.   

The newlyweds made their exit accompanied by the Rose Street Quartet playing the theme from the Muppet Show!

Many thanks to Kirsty and Euan for sharing these great shots by photographer Marsailli Mainz.

"Dear Fiona, we wanted to thank you so much for performing such a lovely wedding ceremony for us. It was an absolute highlight of our wedding day and two months on people are still saying how much they enjoyed it.... Thank you also for all your help and patience in the run up to the day."
