The Costume & Accessories

My costume was from Minor Mistress. We required unique outfits for our exclusive day but did not want to be in outfits that didn’t come to feel like ‘us’.

The detail I believe I liked most about what I wore was what I didn’t wear… sneakers. It was barefoot all the way.

Keith made me a necklace out of pottery observed on a beach front close to our house and gifted it to me the early morning of the marriage. No veil for me Shetland can be incredibly windy.

Denise MacBeath did my hair and make-up.

The Groom & The Engagement

Keith’s outfit was from Slaters Menswear in Edinburgh.

We fulfilled on a bus in Unst, the most northerly island in the British isles. Obtaining both been on a evening out to enjoy a band enjoying in the North Unst Public Hall, we caught every other’s eye a number of occasions in the course of the night. We ended up sitting next to just about every other on the bus on the way property. The point that we fulfilled on a bus always tickles me, as there are so several buses that in fact go close to Unst.

Our son was finest man, in an outfit from H&M Little ones. Our daughter was also in H&M Little ones, accessorised by Meemo (my mum).


My mum was our florist. She introduced wildflowers from her yard and then she produced the bouquets on the morning of the wedding. My daughter and bridesmaid Ava made her personal bouquet, which was a truly specific section of the working day.

She arrived early the day in advance of the marriage ceremony so as to make certain there have been no difficulties with her essentially receiving to Fetlar, and to make sure there was no tension on us as customers.


Susan was totally present to us as a couple and to the rest of the family our little ones fell really significantly in really like with her (as did my dad and mom!) the total time she was in Fetlar. She has boundless vitality and is extremely quick to talk with.

Neither of us are really at ease in entrance of the digicam at the greatest of periods but Susan truly did make us feel at ease and assist us rest into our shots. The benefits speak for by themselves.

I beloved that Susan preferred a Facetime get in touch with just before confirming with us. It designed me feel like we ended up a lot more than ‘just one more booking’ for her. I appreciated this additional than you can know for a lot of factors, but I think generally simply because our wedding day was completely secret – and Susan was another person I could be excited about it with! I felt this enabled us to experience able to 100% believe in Susan with our key. She had her entire self there with us the full time.

We have and go on to convey to absolutely everyone to e-book a session or a wedding ceremony with Susan.

Elope! And be positive to consider Susan with you!

We loved the simplicity that was felt and was current throughout the complete working day. There was no rush, no stress, and the solar was shining.

Currently being in Shetland and sneaking away to Fetlar – an island which we both have grown up with in our life – and both equally emotion the magic of the island dotted during our working day wouldn’t have labored with a significant celebration.
