Nicole and Jack travelled all the way from the US to Scotland so they could renew their vows on a milestone in their life journey together.

Dunnottar Castle is a ruined medieval fortress located upon a rocky headland on the North Eastern coast of Scotland,

This intimate spot with its stunning scenery which makes it perfect for intimate ceremonies, renewals and elopements.


Beautiful Bride Nicole says of this romantic coastal vow renewal…


Tell us a wee bit about yourselves…

I’m Nicole and I’m an Art Teacher, and my husband Jack is an Electrician, Plumber HVAC Contractor and Inventor.

We live in the US with our 22 year old son and 3 puppies.

How did you meet as a Couple?

My mom found him in the phone book….(it sounds so funny when we say this) but we needed a plumber to fix a problem with our hot water heater at our family business and the rest is history.

We have been married for just over 16 years now.

Tell us about your Vow Renewal journey…

We knew we wanted to come to Scotland for my 50th birthday and Jack said why don’t we renew our vows on our 15th Anniversary while we are there? So we kind of went all out! and it was amazing!

The setting was absolutely spectacular.

What was the best bit of your day?

Everything, it was such a wonderful experience.

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

Be honest, be quick to forgive and love each other like crazy!
