Okay, first off I want to give a shout out (do people still do that?) to the adorable Scottish kitty in this darling wedding: Me-ow, little fur ball! I’d also love to share the fact that I love, love, love the super old stone buildings, the DIY table marker plants, and the amazing kilts, but who wouldn’t? And lastly, I’d like to say that the photography by Marianne Taylor is to die for and has me staring at the blank pages on my passport wishing there was a big, fat Scotland stamp on it. If this little charmer has you smitten with the idea of crossing the pond or any body of water for your big day, check out our favorite swoon-worthy destination weddings here.

From Marianne Taylor: When Isla & Ewan’s wedding moved from the originally planned location in London up to Aberdeenshire in their native Scotland, I was so very excited. I’d never been to Scotland before and I don’t think there can be a better way for a first visit than attending an absolute fairytale of a wedding!
I find it impossible to think of anything that wouldn’t have been either sublimely beautiful – flowers, handmade pom poms, Isla’s wedding gown (Pronovias from Teokath of London), or amazingly impressive – the poetic Scottish countryside, the incredible venue (Aswanley), men in kilts, or heart-warmingly touching – the cute VW van, Isla & Ewan’s most adorable cat, all the people in attendance. There was just nothing not to love about the day.
I will forever remember how welcomed I felt by everyone, and how Isla’s attention to details created an absolutely magical day.
