Nicola & Adam’s Real Wedding

Nicola and Adam first met when she was doing work experience where he worked. The couple were together for four years before they got engaged, and married a year later in a nautical themed wedding in Edinburgh, captured by Jacqui at ChicPhoto, winner of the HBAs 2013.

After looking round lots of shops, Nicola discovered the Vanessa gown by Maggie Sottero, and knew she’d found the one. It was simple, but elegant and featured flattering and decorative straps.


The bride asked her cousin Gillian to be chief bridesmaid, and picked her cousins Claire and Kirsty as bridesmaids. Her little cousin Aimee was the flower girl, and her twin brother Owen had the role of page boy.

The bridesmaids wore royal blue chiffon gowns from Coast, which were chosen as they featured unique ruffled details which reminded Nicola of the waves in the sea.

Adam looked smart in his Merchant Navy uniform, and his groomsmen wore traditional Scottish formalwear, including tartan kilts, Prince Charlie jackets and sporrans. Adam also had a grooms-woman who wore the same as the bridesmaids.
