Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful Lothian Micro Wedding at Kirknewton Stables with pretty rustic detail.
Images were captured by Stevie Weir Photography.
Stevie Weir is a wedding photographer based in Glasgow, who has been photographing weddings in Glasgow and throughout Scotland since 2006.
His approach to weddings is a delicate balance to be really be true to the spirit of what happened on the day, but also playing with it creatively.
He loves the idea of creating iconic images of newlyweds – something that feels a bit heightened and special, to match the once-ever energy of the day.
He also love to catch the special moments that can only happen at a wedding – all the happy smiles, laughs, and even those moments where some guests just need to have a wee greet
I hand over to stunning Bride Annabelle to tell us all over the couples story and about their Lothian micro wedding…
How did you meet?
My husband and I met at our church when we were both at university in Glasgow.
Tell us about the Proposal…
One weekend we were staying at my parent’s house in Edinburgh and decided to climb the hill that looks over the village I was brought up in.
I had been up this hill many times and it was one of my favourite spots, my husband had never been.
When we got to the top he proposed. It was very special.
How did Covid change your Wedding plans?
We had originally planned a wedding of 120 guests for the summer of 2020.
When Covid hit, we had no idea what would happen with the wedding.
We didn’t see each other for ten weeks during the first lockdown, and were not able to make any plans for the wedding due to the uncertainty.
You have to register to get married at least four weeks before the wedding, and this opened up to allow us to be married on our original date within days. We made it just in time!
Our venue were amazing and allowed us to have our wedding there as planned.
All of our original suppliers teamed together to make it the most beautiful day last minute.
Nothing about our wedding actually changed except the guest list fell from 120 to 16!
We always wanted a small wedding as neither of us like a fuss, but in the initial stages of planning it kept growing arms and legs!
We were very pleased with how it worked out, and feel we enjoyed the intimate day with our favourite people far more than we would have enjoyed the big wedding.
As we saved so much money, we were able to focus on the details of the day and make them really special.
It was a beautiful sunny day, and we all spent most of the day outside in the gardens of the venue laughing together!
We are both very close to our families and each other’s, so it was a dream to spend the day with them all together.
Tell us your favourite part of the day…
Our favourite part of our Lothian micro wedding day was arriving and walking down the aisle.
There had been so much uncertainty about whether the day would go ahead and how it would go ahead, that the sense of relief of it finally happening was huge and we didn’t really accept it until that point.
The venue was stunning, and we decided to get married outside under the trees. There was a light breeze and it was beautifully sunny.
It all worked out perfectly in the end and we all loved every minute of the day, from start to finish. It really couldn’t have been better.
What Advice would you give to couples getting married right now?
Our advice for any couples getting married now would be to remember what the day is actually about.
Even if you don’t get the venue you wanted, or the full guest list of all your friends and family, or it isn’t going to be how you always dreamed it would be, you still have each other and that is the most important thing.
