You will love this beautiful seaside wedding near North Berwick Scotland!
Sea breeze, sea views, sunshine, love, laughter, happy tears and friendships were in order for Georgie and Chris’s beautiful wedding day!
When your parents own a beautiful cliffside B&B there really is no questions on where your wedding will take place, especially with those epic views of Bass rock. Georgie always wanted to get married somewhere personal and since Chris proposed in the bay nearby Canti Bay house, her parents air B&B, there was no question that this was to be their venue. Teamed with a beautiful ceremony in the historic medieval Seton Collegiate Church it was a recipe for one incredible day, which it was.
Scott and I were so excited as we drove up to start the day. Seeing the location, the personal touches, the florists and caterers busy at work getting everything ready and well the styling was totally up my street! Everything was looking stunning with wildflower arrangements everywhere including some in hanging floral wreaths, it’s table decor tying in the seaside and coastal beachy theme and a bookcase for guests to fill with books for the happy couple to fill their marital home bookcase with. What an awesome idea!!!
Leading onto our couple of the day. Georgie’s choice in dress was so utterly pretty and just exquisite. She chose a 70’s vintage dress from Elizabeth Avey Vintage in Greenwich. I adored the polka dots and the lace trimming on the dress. It suited her to a tee and she looked so incredibly beautiful in the dress with vintage and low key natural makeup and hair. A girl after my own heart as well wearing some Irregular Choice shoes. On top of all this awesomeness, the bridesmaids wore skirts and lace tops! LOVED! We can’t forget the boys who looked smart in Reiss and Moss Bros. suits. We love seeing suits now and then as it makes a nice change from kilts which is the norm in Scotland. Not that we don’t love a kilt but change is always good.
Are you thinking of keeping things close to home and truly personal? Scroll down for some top tips.
In addition to all of this their family and friends were such a joy to spend the day with. Everything was so laid back and enjoyable with it being kept home and close to the heart. The caterers from The Garvald Inn were even friends of the family and Georgie’s past employers and boy did they feed us well and take care of us which keeps us very happy indeed!
- Feed your photographer! It’s the kind thing to do. We work an extremely long day, up on our feet and thinking at a million miles an hour constantly so a warm plate of food is welcomed.
For now, sit back and enjoy this beautiful wedding.

Tips on how to keep things personal and how to do things your own way
- Choose wedding attire which you feel comfortable in and which is you. No need to conform to what that dress should be
- Kilt or suit? Just because we live in Scotland it doesn’t mean you have to wear a kilt. If you do why not change it up a bit by having different attire from your groomsmen
- Bridesmaids dresses don’t have to be dresses and they don’t have to match either. Have a peek at another of our brides here who went for different floral dresses for her girls
- You don’t even need to choose an actual wedding venue. If you have access to somewhere awesome then look into it and see if it can be done. Especially if it’s special to you
- No need to go overboard with makeup. These days I LOVE that brides are choosing really natural looks.
- Hair up hair down. Don’t put your hair up if you never have it up. Stay you on your wedding day. Have a peek here at one of our brides who rocked her hair down!
- Follow your heart on everything. Go with what makes your heart sing and don’t feel you have to stick to traditions as weddings aren’t really about that anymore.
