An Aussie, Boho, Nordic Vibes Wedding in Scotland

Caro was chosen to capture the marriage of a Primary School teacher and her GP-in-training husband, who tied the knot on 13th July in Perthshire, Scotland, and such a truly beautiful job she's done.


From the cake and decor to the fashion and elegance and then the pair's loved-up smiles.

"Iain is Scottish and I am Australian, but I always knew we'd get married in Scotland because it meant a lot to Iain. I also originate from a family with Scottish heritage therefore it was really exciting for my side of the family to arrive in Scotland."

"Iain and I met just a little over seven years back whilst backpacking through Central America. We met inside a hostel in Nicaragua and after spotting one another at various hostels across the trip we exchanged Facebook details. Iain went back to the UK at the end of the summer and I continued traveling for an additional 3 months through South America."

"After many visits back during school holidays and over annually of continued chatting we finally admitted that people were actually in a long-distance relationship and Iain was able to apply for and become granted an exchange year in New Zealand. We both went to live in Wellington for 1.5 years and then chose to move to Australia to become closer to my loved ones."

"In May 2018 Iain proposed on the stunning secluded beach just near Byron Bay. He had secretly packed the vehicle the night before having a beautiful picnic that they set up for all of us just after the proposal. It was an ideal setting. We were engaged for 14 months before the big day arrived."

"I knew I wanted wedding dresses with sleeves which automatically narrows down your alternatives (specifically in Australia!) so when I saw the dress I just knew it had been the one. I love the intricate sequins and also the fitted silhouette. understands how to cut fabric in this type of flattering way. The dress has subtle art deco references but has a modern/boho look which I love."


"My veil is made for me by my sister Ebony who studied fashion design. She made her very own wedding dress a few years back but didn't want the pressure of creating mine! I loved that I had something produced by her though. It wasn't finished before the evening before the marriage but it had been perfect."

"We knew in the very beginning that we desired to do some kind of version in our vows. Whilst writing everything from scratch was just a little too nerve-wracking, we wound up trawling through blogs and finding all of the sentences we loved then combining them to every write our very own version of the items we desired to say. So with just a little help from the ones that went before us we wrote our very own vows."

"Bridesmaids' dresses were both just sourced and bought around the high street. I wanted girls to wear something they loved, felt comfortable in, and dons again so I just left it up to them, having a brief to remain within the 'pinks/blush'."

"As Iain and I weren't fussed around the idea of cutting a cake at the marriage we were built with a bit of freedom to experience around. We chose to order 3 cakes from in Glasgow and 100 filled doughnuts from Rowan at The Bearded Baker in Edinburgh."

"Big bear made 1 fully iced, 1 semi-naked, and 1 naked cake which my sister then dressed in the venue using fresh figs and berries from Gloagburn farm shop and Eucalyptus and foraged leaves in the garden. It fitted in so well using the boho vibe of all things else. My mum is a celiac therefore we made sure one of the cakes was gluten-free."

"The doughnuts were an enormous hit and it had been such fun deciding on the flavors. Rowan told us he might make any flavor we wished, but in the end, we selected chocolate honeycomb, salted caramel, and traditional raspberry."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Pick some things that you worry about and do them towards the highest standard possible, then select a handful of stuff that you just don't worry about and wipe them off your listing of worries, after which you are going to be left having a more reasonable listing of choices to make but they're not making or break. The people who are around you will have their very own ideas about what is important but simply sticking to what you and also your partner decided means probably the most to you."
