Sue and Brendan, Carberry Tower, near Musselburgh

Sue and Brendan got married on the 29th of May 2010 on a glorious day in the countryside outside Musselburgh. I first met them on the 20th March 2010 and we talked through their ideas for their wedding. They wanted something quite relaxed but personal. I ask the couples I am to marry to do some homework for me, to think about what marriage means to them and about what they want from their marriage. This, together with a piece about “their story” becomes the heart of their unique and personal ceremony.

“We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for conducting our wedding ceremony. You were unbelievably helpful from start to finish and we couldn’t have wished for a better person for our day. Everybody has commented on how lovely the ceremony was – a large part of which was down to your careful guidance and advice.

You made us feel relaxed about the day from the very first moment that we met you which was just what we were after. The encouragement along the way certainly helped and it’s the first piece of homework that I can remember enjoying completing for quite some time! Sorry we never got the chance to share a drink with you but it was all a whirlwind from the moment we left the chapel!

Good luck with all your future weddings – we know you’ll do a great job.”
