I took the long journey up from the East Midlands to the beautiful borders of Scotland to document the marriage of Oliver & Emily at the church in Ladykirk, a village on the B6470, just north of the River Tweed and the Anglo-Scottish border. The town was formerly known as Upsettlington, but King James IV of Scotland renamed the town Ladykirk; the church is also known as St. Mary’s Church or Kirk of Steill and was built by James IV, apparently in gratitude for being saved from drowning in the River Tweed!

Emily sought inspiration for her outfit from the 1920s and I’m sure you’ll agree that she looked amazing in her 80 year old Dress which came in at least four or five parts and was incredibly delicate. The reception was held afterwards in the grounds of her parent’s home and the amazing teepee village in the grounds was provided by UK Teepee Hire Company Papakåta of York who specialise in hiring out Kåta tents for parties, weddings, festivals and events. These are the same kind of teepee style tents pioneered by the Sami people of Lapland. They’re utterly gorgeous, and make for a very different sort of party space than a run-of-the-mill marquee.

After the wedding breakfast, the evening then rocked sublimely to the amazing sounds of Kent based Rock and Roll covers band Good Rockin’ Tonight. These guys are not just good, they are amazing! I get to see a lot of bands and these four very talented musicians are guaranteed to fill the dance floor at any event. It’s not very often I stay for a full set, but I did just to listen to as much of this band as possible.
