Hannah and Sam’s classic Scottish wedding on Guy Fawkes Night

Wedding: 05/11/2017

Posted by Roya | 14 April, 2018

Like many modern love stories, Hannah and Sam’s began when they met on a night out while studying at University.

Following graduation Hannah and Sam, aged 25 and 29 respectively, bought their first home together and became a family of three by adopting a puppy, Luna.

Sam popped the question on the fifth anniversary of their first date while on their way to an annual family weekend at Loch Fyne.

“He made an excuse about having a numb foot and needed to stop and stretch his legs,” Hannah laughs. “It was the best way to start the weekend. He even mentioned our dog in his proposal speech!”

Like many grooms, Sam initially said he’d go to cake tastings, kilt fittings and turn up on the day. “I managed to get him to do more,” Hannah says.

With their families travelling to attend the wedding, Hannah and Sam knew they wanted a venue that held both their ceremony and reception. On Guy Fawkes Night, November 5, 2017, the pair exchanged vows before 71 day guests and 90 evening guests at their classic Scottish wedding at Meldrum House in Oldmeldum, Aberdeenshire.

“Our main aim was to have a day to remember and share with our family and friends, and for them to enjoy celebrating the day with us,” Hannah says. “It was everything we could have imagined and a day we will cherish.”
