Way back, we got a phone call from a gorgeous and bubbly Scottish woman trying to organise her wedding way down here in Somerset. Lyndie was a delight from start to finish, her enthusiasm was infectious. It wasn’t until we met her and Martin that we realised just how much this super-woman had on her hands. Raising 4 little girls while Martin worked away with the red arrows is no mean feat. We take our hats off to the pair of you.

When we arrived the glam squad was in full swing. Lorna Anne was on make up duty while Kim Felton was on hair.

Martin had made a promise to Lyndie’s grandmother that he would wear a kilt for the wedding. It was a promise he was proud to honour, he is a man of his word.

Bride and maids
All the ladies

The couple’s newly blended family of 4 girls were fantastic as bridesmaids. I’m not sure how successful they were in planning a hen do, but they did their jobs very well indeed.

All the men looked dapper kilted and booted.

Beautiful bride
Serene and beautiful

Lyndie and I had a few moments of quiet while she dressed. She looked serene and beautiful in her grandmothers veil from the 1950s.

Bridal reveal
Suprise!

I went and got the four little ones and led them into the room with their eyes closed. Their reaction when they saw Lyndie all dressed up was priceless. These little ladies had helped Lyndie choose her dress, but nothing beats seeing it on the day in all it’s glory.

Not nervous!

It was time to get these two married.

The ceremony was lovely. I particularly loved this tender moment above.

Arranging a group heart shot is never easy. It always seems like a total mess from ground level, but with my birdseye view I can see it all come together finally.

With a 3pm ceremony and sunset at 4.20 we had to hustle to catch the end of the failing light. Poor Martin was a little chilly, but he still managed to make Lyndie laugh – he’s a keeper.

After a chilly session the couple were glad to get back inside. Their cake topper was a surprise, which Milly was very keen to show them.

The speeches were before the meal which allowed the speaker to relax and enjoy their dinner.

We had a bit of fun in the dark with the smoke bombs.

Back inside the guests were getting ready to party the night away. The photobooth was in full swing and Gerry from DJ at my wedding was handling the dancefloor. At one stage I did spot him being made over by a number of under 10s.

 It really was a pleasure and an honour to be part of Lyndie and Martin’s big day. We wish them all the very best for the future.
