Love was always meant to be indelible, inked under the skin like a lover's tattoo whose beauty is worth the pain and time it takes to heal.
And so it is that love always finds a way of drawing souls together. For Nena & Dani, Ibiza is where their lines connected and freedom coloured the space between.
Naturally, they returned to where it all began, gathering their tribe under Ibiza's autumn sun to say "Soy tuyo para siempre." The grace and style of love's art embodied in each other's arms.
Sara & Michael // Dalduff Farm, Ayrshire
There is something about telling a story that these two absolutely own.
Of course, as actors, this is to be expected. Yet without the necessity for words, Sara & Michael pull you into their unfolding fairytale...his glinting glances towards her, her delicate touch of his hand, the overflow of emotion in the ways they both laugh or in the path of a solitary tear.
It all conspires to weave together a timeless love story in the here & now, celebrated in style and surrounded by family & friends.
Mélanie & Matthieu // Dalhousie Castle
Parisian couples always seem to exude a certain air of sophistication in the most understated of ways. You'd imagine Mélanie & Matthieu sipping coffee on a cobbled street corner in Montmartre, browsing pages of books in Le Bibliothèque Mazarine, strolling down the banks of La Seine some evening in spring.
Yet they chose to swap Parisian couture for Scottish heritage and a year after Matthieu surprised Mèlanie at Dalhousie Castle by asking her to be his wife, they returned for an intimate wedding day.
These two are writers and their love of words and romance was evident throughout their day, choosing to hold on to each other through any version of who they find themselves to be. "I promise I shall stay beside you, from the field of reality to the ocean of dreams, from close shore to distant star."
Lauren & Beau // Isle of Skye
We'd like to think that when Lauren & Beau are old and recounting the story of how they wed on Scotland's Isle of Skye, that they'd recall how only the sheep were witness to it, how the gusting wind and surging waves sang them down the aisle, how time stood still.
Looking out to sea, as the light danced on the horizon, we were all left with a feeling that Nature had woven a magical spell in which these two lovers had become as entwined as the rain within the protection of her clouds.
"Our souls have known each other a long time," she cried. "We've been at home with each other ever since."
Lucy & Pete // Devon, England
When you live in the heart of Scotland yet grew up in glorious Devon, you'd be forgiven for not being able to decide where to celebrate your marriage. So why not do both?
Back in the Autumn, Lucy & Pete had an intimate wedding surrounded by close family in The Hermitage, Dunkeld. Now in the Spring, it was time to throw a party back in Lucy's childhood Devonshire home.
Imagine something between a Jane Austen novel & The Great Gatsby and you will get the idea of how the day unfolded. Vintage cars, homemade picnics, flowing dresses and single malts to match, Lucy & Pete's wedding celebration was both a delight to capture and a memory to cherish.
Ana & Rowan // Glencoe, Highlands
We got together on a crisp November morning. The leaves were still frosted from the cold night before, the snow-capped mountains reminding us that winter was coming. Seasons change quickly in the Scottish Highlands.
We met Ana & Rowan to take a walk through some of their favourite places. Glencoe has become home for these beautiful souls in the past year, perhaps unexpectedly. They told us that’s what happens when you follow your heart. Their love for nature and each other is all they need.
We spoke of finding the light...the spaces, movements and shifting moments that allow it to shine through. As T.S. Eliot wrote, “So the darkness shall be light, and the stillness dancing.” That’s when beauty emerges.
And so we watched as these two wandered, gazed and danced their way through forest and glen, giving us glimpses into the spaces that keep holding them together.
