Restoration Yard wedding | Mhairi + Tom

Restoration Yard wedding photos

For anyone looking for an outdoor wedding venue with a vintage feel, Restoration Yard is the place. Dalkeith Country Park is my local park I’ve visited many times before so when I got a booking at the Restoration Yard I got pretty excited. I mean, I love travelling around Scotland exploring new places but it is great to visit a local wedding venue too.

Mhairi & Tom live in the neighbourhood as well and knew the park well.  They decided on this lovely quirky venue while visiting for a walk.  The orangery makes unique location for an outdoor wedding ceremony and extensive grounds are a nice addition for wedding photos. Even on a busy summer day like this, the couple and their guests could use the lawn exclusively for drinks reception, lawn games and dancing in the evening.

Mhairi & Tom

Mhairi was wearing non traditional wedding dress made by Needle and Thread and a beautiful floral crown. The weather was very hot so as you can imagine the majority of the day was spent outdoors. Due to restrictions there was no music entertainment however bride’s brother played some ukulele and there was some ceilidh dancing on the lawn.  And let’s not forget about games which were very popular in the evening!

I am looking forward to visiting Restoration Yard for another beautiful wedding this Spring.
