Fiona & Karl

* Fiona, Chief Officer Merchant Navy & Karl, Construction and Groundworker * Photographer: Lillian & Leonard * Soundtrack for reading: “Home” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros *

One sentence sum up of the wedding: A homemade, family effort with many friends game for a giggle—homemade love.

The Info—Photography: Lillian & Leonard / CeremonyVenue: Cortachy Church / Officiant: Rev. Malcolm Rooney / Dinner & Ceilidh Venue: The Tractor Shed at Derachie Farm (the farm where Fiona was brought up) / Band: The Roundhouse Ceilidh Band / Cake: The amazing lighthouse cake was made and decorated by Fiona’s sister & her husband (a labor of love!) / Food: All homemade by Fiona’s mum and brother-in-law, with homegrown farm potatoes! / Fiona’s Dress: Handmade by her mum from Vogue Pattern V2979 (Fiona’s mum also made the bridesmaid dresses, flower girls’ dresses and her own dress, because she is amazing) / Karl’s Kilt: Handmade by Keith Scott Kiltmakers in Dundee / Karl’s Jacket: Harris Tweed Shop / Cars: Two vintage minis arranged by Fiona’s dad from two local minis that he’d seen around the county!

Favorite thing about the wedding: My favorite part was the preparation before the wedding, staying up to the wee small hours writing table names and copying out the shipping forecast and then listening to You Tube spoofs of the shipping forecast with my sister at 3am. Another favorite was after everyone had left the tractor shed and it was just my two brothers and sister and our other halves dancing to a random assortment from my wee brother’s laptop. But my real favorite bit was the effort and preparation that everyone put in to make sure we had an amazing day.
