Ashley and Dave had got married on the beautiful grounds of the Aberfoyle Mill. Surrounded by weeping willows swaying in the breeze, it was truly a perfect summer day.
There were so many moments that made Ashley & Dave's wedding special and unique, starting with Ashley's dress. Worn by both her mother and grandmother, Ashley had the dress shortened and altered to fit her perfectly.
One of my favourite things about watching the bride and her mother get ready, was seeing just how close these two women are. The easy going support and fondness touched my heart, because I also consider my mother one of my best friends.
Over at the groom's getting ready, Ashley & Dave's adorable little corgi – Millie – was all dressed up for the festivities.
Ashley & Dave had a really sweet first look – they were so excited to see each other, and once they did, they could finally relax and enjoy a few moments together before the ceremony.
Under blue skies, Dave and Ashley stated their promises to one another, and set a golden lantern floating down the pond, in memory of Ashley's father. Hearts were overflowing.
The ceremony was followed by an evening of celebration that lasted long into the summer night.
Congratulations Dave and Ashley – I wish you and your families a lifetime of happiness!
