Anne and Wullie's Humanist Wedding at Eskmills Venue

Anne and Wullie's wedding was memorable for lots of reasons, and not just because they were my FIRST EVER Tinder wedding! 



Wullie chose a perfect place for their first date: the fabulous Cocoablack in Peebles, recently named UK Confectioner of the Year. He's still convinced that Anne drove past a few times to check him out before checking in!

They had what the French call 'un coup de foudre' - a real whirlwind romance.

It was just six weeks after their first hot chocolate that Wullie got down on one knee at The Scott Monument, and Anne said yes!




Wullie's 91 year old mum, Olive, was delighted (but she told Anne not to pay Wullie too many compliments in case he got a big head!) 



Anne's niece Nicola spoke, as did Wullie's older sister Mary, and his pal Kenny, and Anne's friend Jennifer gave the final reading. 

Before Wullie and Anne exchanged their vows, I asked their guests to make some collective promises to them - not least to tell them that if they forget their promises and start to complain about the wee things, they're eejits!




It was a very heart-warming ceremony, and I think these photos show just how much Anne and Wullie enjoyed it.

Anne wrote me a lovely review on the Scottish Wedding Directory site, saying, 

"Just wanted to say... on behalf of my husband and I !!! Saturday was the best day!



The ceremony was so good, and we loved every minute. You were fantastic and everyone commented on how great it was and that they'd never been to a wedding like it. Thank you for making it special."

Well what really made it special Anne was that you and Wullie wrote it: that was what made it so special for you, and for your guests and for me too. 

Thank you so much for sharing these lovely photos by Cliff and Gordon, and I hope you and Wullie have a great time racing around on his motorbike!
