Well it was another brilliant Summers day at the Marcliffe on Saturday, for the lovely wedding of Nicola and Gary.
Nicola’s mum Sheena has worked at the Marcliffe for many years, so it was time for her to take a well earned break, and enjoy the wedding of her beautiful daughter Nicola!
Nicola looked stunning in her gorgeous Essence of Australia gown, purchased at Perfect Bridal.
Her Bridesmaids Laura and Sarah complimented her perfectly in beautiful lavender Sorella Vita dresses.
The perfect finishing touch for Nicola and her Bridesmaids were lovely bouquets provided by florist Dolce Vita.
The guys hired their kilt outfits from Milsom and Main and chose the Grey Crombie.
Guests gathered for the lovely wedding ceremony conducted by Humanist Vanessa Smith, before heading back out into the sunshine to mingle and enjoy drinks and canapes.
It appeared that Laura and Sarah were not the only Bridesmaids at the wedding, as family dog Jess arrived to spend some time with the wedding party and enjoy a little photo shoot of her own!
The dining room at the Marcliffe looked beautiful, and the wedding cake provided by the very talented Cakes by Kirsty was a real show piece.
After a wonderful meal, guests were entertained by talented band Northern Star from Edinburgh.
We wish Nicola and Gary all the best for a lifetime of happiness as Mr and Mrs Mackie!

What a lovely day we had at Pittodrie House with Georgina and Phil and their family and friends.
There were plenty of familiar faces at this wedding for us, which always makes it a bit more special.
Phil hails from Aberdeen, although the couple now live down south in Georgina’s home city of Bath.
Neither could resist however, the appeal of a lovely Scottish wedding, and chose Pittodrie House as their perfect venue.
Georgina looked stunning in her beautiful wedding gown which she purchased at Mae Bridal in Oxford.
She was complimented perfectly by her two sisters who were bridesmaids, and her absolutely adorable nieces Amelia, Maddie and Pheobe and nephew Charlie.
The four children were absolute stars and posed for pictures like true models!
Auntie Georgina and uncle Phil must have been so proud of them!
Phil wore his own kilt which is the MacLeod of Harris tartan, while the groomsmen hired prestige grey spirit from Slaters, and a handsome group they were!
The weather was certainly not behaving on the day, however we scots are well and truly used to that, and it did nothing to dampen the mood at this lovely wedding!
After a lovely relaxed ceremony it was time for guests to mingle and time for some photos inside and out.
The Rococco quartet provided lovely background music while everyone enjoyed drinks and canopes.
Bennachie was popping in and out of the mist, but thankfully put in an appearance for a few photos!
Thankfully Georgina had a beautiful tartan stole to match Phil’s kilt to keep her warm!
Everyone enjoyed a wonderful meal in the lovely function suite, before the Reel McCoy rounded off the day perfectly, with plenty of fabulous tunes to dance the night away to.
We hope Georgina and Phil have a fabulous honeymoon in the far East, and even more importantly, a fantastic future together as Mr and Mrs Ouston!

We were blessed again with fabulous weather for the beautiful wedding of Danielle and Chris at Cluny Castle.
This was our first visit to Cluny, and we were delighted with what it had to offer both inside and out in the grounds!
Danielle was a stunning bride and looked absolutely gorgeous in her Ronald Joyce gown purchased at Brides Delight.
Bridesmaids Sarah and Kathryn wore beautiful Jenny Packham dresses.
Groom Chris and his brother Jamie wore the MacFarlane modern Hunting tartan, and looked very smart indeed.
The wedding ceremony was held in the beautiful chapel at Cluny and conducted by Neil Mellis.
Guests enjoyed refreshments while we spent time with bride and groom capturing some fabulous moments in the beautiful setting of Cluny.
Later it was time to head to the lovely Thainstone House Hotel where the reception was to be held.
Great singer Myke Black kept everyone well entertained until mealtime.
The function suite looked beautiful, having been decorated by 3 Tiers, Illumin8 and A Line.
The lovely flowers on the table were also provided by Floral Design.
Bride and groom added their own personal touch with their “Brew cat” and “Big Mo” beer and moet favours.
You will appreciate that they are cat lovers when you see the pictures!
After a lovely meal it was time to settle down and enjoy the evening entertainment provided by great band The Lockharts from Glasgow.
Anyone feeling peckish in the evening did not have to worry, as a visit from the Bay Fish and Chip van later, went down a treat!

Saturday brought us to the lovely Raemoir House Hotel for the beautiful wedding of Nicola and Iain.
The couple and their family and friends could not have wished for a more perfect day.
The sun shone and there was not a cloud in the sky.
It was easy to forget that it was still only May in Aberdeen!
Nicola wore a gorgeous Ronald Joyce gown purchased at Perfect Bridal, and looked simply stunning.
Nicola’s bridesmaids Lisa, Sarah, Christina and Georgina wore lovely silver Jenny Packham dresses.
Wow what a beautiful line up they made, finished off with fabulous bouquets from Isla Duncan!
Iain, his best man and groomsmen, looked very handsome indeed in their Black Watch kilt outfits hired from McCalls.
The lovely relaxed ceremony was held in the wonderful marquee at Raemoir and conducted by humanist Rachel Donald.
While we spent some time with our Bride and Groom, family and friends were able to relax in the sunshine, sipping champagne and listening to fabulous live singing provided by Mareesa from the band Soul Inferno, who were due to perform in the evening.
The marquee looked beautiful for the evening meal, decorated by Fairytale events and topped off with more beautiful flowers from Isla Duncan.
After some emotional speeches, and a wonderful meal, it was time to relax into the evening entertainment from Soul Inferno.
We hope Nicola and Iain have a fantastic honeymoon in California, and wish them all the best for a long and wonderful future together!
