The story of Ben and Mhairi's Scottish Wedding with a hand fasting, Kingsdown Manor, Timaru Kingsdown Manor and Chapel Centre was the perfect location for Ben and Mhairi's Scottish themed wedding. In keeping with their heritage, a hand fasting enactment was included after the exchange of rings.
Their whole family was involved in including Toby, their much loved fur baby. The day began with a little drizzle which stopped an hour before the wedding and the sky was perfect for the photos. Brad Reeve Photography captured their special moments for their wedding day.
Mhairi and Ben had a personalised ceremony that captured their essence and their love story. They wrote their own vows which were very moving.
Their ceremony had some very special enactments. A beautiful reading from a dear friend, a talented musician on keyboard for their signing and a traditional Scottish hand fasting. Their hand fasting cord was made with eight metres of fabric in their family colours. It was adorned with special charms which represented different elements in their life. Their were 12 guests invited to come up in pairs and and tie their hands during the ceremony. Afterwards the cords were gently removed and are kept as a reminder of their wedding day. The ceremony was very special having many involved. The ceremony and whole day flowed beautifully.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Fraser.
It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you and your family.
I wish you a long and happy life filled with love, laughter and lots of happy memory, making moments.
