We met Laura and Gordon a couple of times before their wedding and while bonding over a mutual love of TV show Breaking Bad and crazy wedding films we knew this cerebration was gonna be good. Plus there was plenty GWC lovin’ with loads of suppliers from the collective. Woot Woot!
The beautiful June sun broke clouds the morning and drenched the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh where the preps were being held in warmth. Gordon had stayed the night in Edinburgh to get ready in the city centre with his best-man and family nearby, with views from his hotel balcony overlooking the city and the Firth of Forth in the distance. Laura was at her family home in Newton Mearns surrounded by her family and bridesmaids. There was a constant buzz about the house and even though the sunlight laid bare the landscape it was indeed Laura’s beaming smile that lit up their home that day.
Once the dress was on Simon jumped in the van along with photographer Caro Weiss and made his way across the country to the Capital followed by the bridal cars. The destination, Glencorse Old Kirk a beautiful intimate church on the grounds of the house. The Kirk was renovated from a ruin a few years ago with an impressive marquee situated just next to the house for dinner and dancing.
The couple involved some of their family in the ceremony with readings throughout before everyone was piped over to the house to chill out in the grounds with a beer or champagne and some tasty canapés while listening to The Dotted Crotchets, some background entertainment.
The newly weds were announced and led to the cake table adorned with old family wedding photos and flowers and it was here they completed their first task as husband and wife to cut their cake. Speeches were delivered with perfect comic timing and emotional sentiment and then food was served. It was at this time the sky opened as if it knew all were sheltered indoors now. As the band took to the stage, Laura and Gordon shared their first dance, joined by the rest of the wedding party. The night had begun, shots were downed and fun was had!
Laura and Gordon we had an amazing time sharing in you’re celebrations and wish you all the best, feel free to pop in for a chat about Breaking Bad anytime 🙂
