Loved this couple. Sarah was one of the most organised brides I have ever met so we definitely got along great from the very first time we met. They both had great ideas for their ceremony and were just perfect for each other.
Loved the story of how they met and their first date…..
Their first date was on the 25th July 2013, almost 3 years ago to the day, at Murrayfield Ice rink to skate and then ordered in dinner. They felt comfortable the whole date and Sarah couldn’t stop smiling because she couldn’t believe such a perfect man existed. The following week they were inseparable and they both met each other’s families. Things progressed very quickly from there and they knew they were in love almost immediately.
And they wrote their own promises and kept them a surprise until the day to do with their handfasting with Scott’s grandad handing over the ribbons (one of the very few couples to do this but it certainly added to the emotion of the day):
Sarah, I never thought it was possible to fall in love with someone I had just met. Then you came along so unexpectedly and proved me wrong. Yes in a traditional sense we moved fast, but to me true love doesn’t have a time scale. I have never stopped loving you and that is why I make the following promises to you:
I promise to show you every day how much you mean to me and how without you my life would be empty.
I promise to be your partner in all things, not possessing you, but working with you to overcome all of life’s challenges.
And finally, I promise to always support and protect you, being the investment that you hope for and deserve.
I make these promises to you today as a pledge of my commitment to our future and our family to come. I am so excited to begin the next chapter of my life and I am so happy it starts with you.
This WILL be the start of something good…
And Sarah if you will now please read your promises to Scott:
When we met I knew there was something special about you and you still continue to amaze and surprise me. On our first date I fell in love with you and I knew from that moment that my life wasn’t complete without you. You make me happier than I could have ever imagined and make me feel more loved than I ever thought possible. You are not only my best friend but you’re my inspiration and I admire everything that you do.
I promise to trust and respect you and to always be open and honest with you
I promise to share your dreams and ambitions and to stand by your side through all of life’s ups and downs
I promise to listen to you, support you and to love you today, tomorrow and always
I feel truly blessed to be a part of your life which as of today becomes our life together. I look forward to us growing old together but more importantly I look forward to us growing stronger together as husband and wife.
Absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for your lovely pictures and to Gareth Owen at Go4 productions. And thank you for letting me be part of your fabulous day Mr and Mrs Gilmour!
