What a pleasure it was capturing this beautiful day. All weddings are magical, but this traditional Scottish Wedding was definitely one to remember. Michael and Melissa were great from the first day we met, and their love was evident in front of the camera.
Tell us your love story, what was your first date like?
We don’t have a magical story about how we met, but we have a funny story from our first date. So, we decided to go bowling before we went for dinner. We had a lot of fun at bowling and then when we had left to go to the restaurant, while we were walking I look down and noticed that we were both still wearing our Bowling Shoes, and never went to go get our own shoes before we had left. We were both wondering why people kept looking at us.
Tell us about your magical day…
When I woke up I was a bit worried as it was raining a little, but then when we got to the venue it had stopped raining but still overcast (I really suggest doing the Fork in the Ground & a Broom in the Tree, as per Andrew). The rest of the day before I walked down the aisle all went smoothly and couldn’t wait to get on my horse and carriage to go down to the chapel to see my future husband. It was the best feeling to say I DO, and to be able to call each other Husband & Wife now. After the ceremony, we cut our amazing cake (none was left over), and then went to go take photos while there was a bag piper playing for our guests. We had a lot of fun taking the photos, besides freezing, which was so worth it as the photos came out perfectly. After all the photos we then went to the reception to be introduced for the first time as Mr. & Mrs. McIvor (it was an amazing feeling). Our first dance & my Father, Daughter dance was awesome, and for the Garter we made the guys do a dance off first as partners and then the last 2 guys did a dance off against each other, and for the Bouquet we made the ladies play musical chairs while fetching objects (was a lot of fun to watch). We had the best day of our lives and wish we could go back to it, thankfully we have wonderful photos and a video.
