After a proposal in New York, Sarah and Colin – who first met at school before getting together at a village gala dance in 2004 – began planning their party of a lifetime. “We knew we wanted nothing too structured; really just a wedding where both we and our guests could relax and enjoy the day,” explains Sarah.
“Although I’ve lived in Edzell my whole life, I didn’t really know much about the Burn. As soon as we got up the driveway we knew this was the place for us! The fact that we got the whole house to ourselves for the weekend, could have an outdoor ceremony and have a blank canvas marquee were all added bonuses.”
With a marquee space to transform, Sarah admits she did get a bit stressed before lift-off. “The day before, I was running around trying to make sure everyone knew every little detail, trying to stop anything going wrong. But when it came to it, there are always little mishaps you can’t control. Give yourself plenty of time and don’t overcomplicate what you’re trying to achieve,” she affirms.
Burfly Photography were on hand to capture all the fun and laughter on camera. “Alongside natural photos of us and the little details, we wanted to see our guests enjoying themselves. As bride and groom you miss so much as the day passes in a flash, so it was important to capture our guests’ experience of the day. We are blown away by the results,” beams Sarah.
