Laura + Tom


Tom and Laura-1

Laura & Tom fell in love with Scotland and decided that Edinburgh would be where they would eventually get married.

I was very fortunate to have been given the freedom to get really creative for their Christmas wedding at the magnificent St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile, followed by reception at the quirky and stylish Prestonfield House – in which I was able to transform the The Stables from an opulent and luxury venue to a romantic and dreamy winter wonderland.

Laura & Tom have four children, so planning a wedding in just a few months felt over-whelming having to juggle their busy lives and planning a day miles away from home. Having only sourced their venue, I began to work on creating exactly what they had imagined – beginning with the stylish invitations {white calligraphy on black envelopes gives you a little idea – they were gorgeous!}, and the transformation of fully draping the stables, installing an additional marquee for the children, the most incredible cake and dessert table and not forgetting special appearances which included the official harpist to the Prince of Wales – Catrin Finch, Mr Joseph Hall who completely wow’d the guests and of course Santa Claus himself!
