What traditions did you follow? (Think something old, new, borrowed and blue.)
I never intended to follow any traditions, however, in the end I had a new dress & shoes, vintage pearl & diamond drop earrings inherited from my Granny, a borrowed veil from a close friend and a blue button that was from my Great Grannies dress that I was given by my aunt. Charlie and I also spent the night before the wedding on different Islands which gave us some down time with our respective families.
Did your wedding have any quirky or unusual features?
Being on a small remote Scottish island with no tarmac roads and no commercial ferry service, was an unusual feature in itself. The whole day was a DIY effort from jugs filled with freshly picked wild flowers to collecting ice from the local fish farm across the water! Another unintentional quirk was having fireworks in daylight, being the north of the UK it doesn't tend to go completely dark until about midnight and because my uncle who was doing the fireworks wanted to have a drink, we decided to set them off while it was still light. Amazingly it worked really well!
What was the funniest moment of the day?
Funniest moment was definitely some classic dance moves from my wonderful father! He has rather perfected his moon walking skills which was admired by all!
