Great to be back in Musselburgh when we had the pleasure of photographing Blyth and Dean’s Eskmills Venue wedding.
One of our final pre-COVID wedding days, Blythe and Dean were married on Valentine’s Day.
Claire’s morning started at Blythe and Dean’s flat where the girls were getting ready. Blythe joined by her best bride squad, bridesmaids Jodie, Holly and Amber and lovely Mum Heather were all in high spirits. They enjoyed a glass or two of buck’s fizz as hairstylist Ava Spence, and makeup artist Kimberley Torley got them glam ready!
Jonathon teamed up with groomsman Dean who was getting ready nearby at his parent’s house. With best man Scott by Dean’s side, the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed as Dean got dressed into his full highland kilt outfit from McCalls Highlandwear.
At Eskmills Venue Musselburgh, there was already a great atmosphere as guests gathered to enjoy a pre-ceremony drink at the bar.
A beautiful flower wall was the perfect backdrop to capture some photographs of Blythe and Dean’s friends and family. They were a lovely crowd of people, great fun to be around and it was great to catch all the hilarity on camera!
Guests took to their seats as the wedding ceremony was about to begin. Roars of laughter from the crowd as Louie, Blyth and Dean’s gorgeous labrador Lewy made his entrance and joined Dean at the altar!
The bridesmaids arrived in style in an old classic VW camper van supplied by Ecosse Classic Cars. Beautiful bride Blythe and her dad arrived in the perfect car on a sunny day like this – a VW Beetle convertible!
Our bride walked down the aisle with her proud Dad to meet her husband-to-be. Blythe looked sensational in her beautiful slim-fitting Rosa Clara wedding dress which was covered in the most exquisite crystal detailing.
Celebrant Fiona Scott led Blyth and Dean’s Humanist wedding ceremony that was full of love, laughter and tears. And what a love story they have! Teenagers when they met and fell in love, Blythe and Dean have been together for nine years.
It was great catching the guest’s reactions, the room was bursting with love and happiness as they watched Blythe and Dean exchange wedding vows and ‘tie the knot’.
After the wedding ceremony, our newly-weds were met with warm congratulations from their family and friends. They enjoyed a celebratory glass of champagne and a few moments to catch their breath and mingle with their guests, before going into formal group wedding photos.
Jonathon took the happy couple outside for their newly-wed photoshoot. Claire stayed with the wedding guests catching candid photos of all the fun of the drinks reception.
Blythe’s Dad kicked off the wedding speeches with kind words thanking everyone for coming to celebrate such a special day. Dean gave a lovely heartfelt speech and his best man got everybody laughing!
There was a great atmosphere as everyone relaxed and enjoyed a sumptuous wedding breakfast by in-house caterers Hickory.
The evening celebrations started with our happy couple cutting their fabulous wedding cake, designed by Caroline Jax Cakes. We loved the cake topper which featured our bride and groom and of course their adorable dog, Lewy!
Our newly-weds’ first dance song was by Elvis Presley, I Can’t Help Falling In Love, performed by fantastic live band The Klones. The next song started, The Proclaimers – Let’s Get Married, and the place went wild! Blythe and Dean were in the middle as their guests made a circle round them. Guests belted out the song, then went crazy as Dean lifted his wife in the air!
What a fantastic way to end a perfect Eskmills Venue wedding!
