Lucy & Mike's Humanist Wedding at Ravensheugh Beach



Mike & Lucy have been together for twenty years and their wedding was a wonderfully relaxed and happy event on a day of glorious sunshine.



The beach is near Tyninghame in East Lothian and it's a very romantic spot.



The cabin is absolutely simple but quite magical.



When I arrived, Mike was still getting dressed.



I liked his brand new Converse sneakers...



I loved Sophie's outfit...



And it was great to see Colin & Julia, who I will be marrying in August of this year. Here are some of Colin's shots, which are much better than my own happy snaps





Lucy just sent me a lovely email. She said, "Thank you so much for such a lovely ceremony - we had a really great day, better than we had hoped for. It was really special for us to have so many close friends gathered in such a beautiful location with splendid weather but the best bit for both of us was the ceremony itself. Certainly, I didn't expect to enjoy it anything like as much as I did! Thank you for entering into the relaxed and friendly spirit of the day so well. "







Ravensheugh Log Cabin above Tyninghame Beach must be one of the most spectacular sites for a wedding in Scotland. It's a traditional Canadian style log cabin with a grass roof that sits above the mile long expanse of white sand, about five miles east of North Berwick, and I've been looking forward to conducting a wedding here ever since I first stumbled across it while walking along the coast a few years ago. Built in the 1960's by the Earl of Haddington, it now belongs to the Dale family who farm locally, and you cxan find out more about it here
