Fred & Hetty - Saint Salvator's Chapel Wedding, St Andrews, Scotland
They said: "Anna was fantastic. From the word go, she was really responsive to emails and made the planning process very easy. At our engagement shoot she put us completely at ease, and the photos were great. But our wedding photos were something else. Anna really caught the spirit of the day and captured memories which we will treasure forever. I couldn't recommend her highly enough."
In my experience, a wedding at Saint Salvator's Chapel in St Andrews will always be a thing of sheer beauty. This venue is pretty much as good as it gets. Each couple that I have seen get married there have been wonderful and Hetty and Fred were no exception.
The morning of their wedding, I met Hetty and her maids at the Rusacks Hotel where they were getting ready, then had a few minutes with the Fred and (some of) his men, before heading off to Saint Salvator's Chapel right in the centre of town. Hetty and Fred met at the St Salvator’s Chapel Choir, so it was fitting that the current choir sang during their signing of the register and later on during the champagne reception.
Fred's wedding gift to Hetty were her incredible pink Prada shoes - they matched perfectly with what Hetty called the Furry Tulips in her bouquet. She'd thought of everything - as well as personalised dressing gowns for all the ladies, she'd planned a dress for the day and a similar but shorter dress for the evening complete with Pink personalised Converse shoes to dance in. To top it all off, under her cathedral length veil, her hair was braided in three different types of plait, one was especially meaningful to her, and it tied the others together; it is called the herringbone plait. As well as continuing with the maritime theme of her new name, Fisher, the herring is national fish of the Isle of Man, which is where she is from. How perfect is that?!
A lot of the decorations in the Lower and Upper College Hall, where they held their reception, was travel themed - their tables each had a significant location name and they made stunning origami flowers out of maps.
Between the ceremony and the reception, Hetty and Fred popped down to the beach for a few photographs, which was a great opportunity to have some alone time as well and soak in what just happened. With snow still on the hills, we were incredibly blessed to have a day with almost constant sunshine.
And in true Scottish tradition, their meal was followed by a ceilidh, called by a fantastic band called The Jiggers.
