From Minnesota to East Lothian | Brittany + Rex

East Lothian wedding

Brittany & Rex live in the USA but as they love to travel getting married in another country sounded like a great idea . Scotland has been on their bucket list for long so when it came to choosing a wedding location they didn’t hesitate. Looking for a wedding venue near Edinburgh, they decided on Colstoun House, barn style venue in East Lothian. It was great choice, and even with some wind and rain all guests had a great day. I really like moody rainbow sky, all wedding photographers best backdrop.

There are a few lovely spots for a wedding ceremony at Colstoun. Polytunnel is my favourite but for a summer weddings the lawn is a better option. I am always looking forward to seeing an arch decorated by florists with seasonal flowers. The wedding took place in the last day of August so the colours were shared between Summer and Autumn. I loved bridesmaids yellow dresses!

A perfect wedding day working with Colstoun recommended suppliers.
