Nicki gets creative for rustic wedding to Andrew

Wedding: 29/10/2016

Posted by Roya | 25 September, 2017

Teased by her friends for not being very creative, Nicola Summers made it her mission to prove everyone wrong at her rustic wedding to Andrew Baikie.

Wedding planning commenced immediately after Andrew and Nicola, both 29, became engaged. The pair placed priority on having their many mutual university friends celebrate with them and coupled with their parents’ similar intentions, the wedding soon became bigger than originally planned.

On October 29, 2016 the Edinburgh pair wed among 205 family and friends at their rustic wedding at Kinkell Byre, Scotland.

“We really just wanted our wedding to be a fun day surrounded by all of the people we love. It was just one big party and we loved every minute of it,” says Nicki.

Nicki admits she received a lot of help from her friends and family. “When I look back at who helped with the venue decor, this pretty much included everyone at some point!” she says. “I had lots of helpers the day before the wedding to help set up and it was so nice to add their ideas and personal touches to the venue.”

Nicki and Andrew borrowed their candy cart from friends who got married earlier in the year. “Lots of people are using the same candy cart at their own weddings,” Nicki says.
