The Mill at Lewinshope Wedding | Carla + Scott

November 1, 2019

The Mill at Lewinshope in the Scottish Borders

This Summer I discovered a brand new wedding venue in the Scottish Borders, perfect for rustic outdoor weddings.

Located in a beautiful setting, with a view over hills, the Mill at Lewinshope is a luxury self catering accommodation. One of their first events was Carla &  Scott’s wedding last June. The couple chose an outdoor wedding ceremony with a marquee reception. The weather was very unpredictable that day with sudden rain that came during drinks reception. However the sun shone for the wedding ceremony and there were many outdoor photo opportunities later in the evening.

Pampas grass, diy summer wedding

Carla is a very talented illustrator and designer who provided the stationery for another Scottish Borders wedding I photographed. The couple decided to book me after seeing Rosalyn & David’s wedding photos. I knew from the start there will be lots of beautiful details created by the bride! From stationery to table place name cards, all signs were handwritten and there were other handmade decorations like stunning pampas grass arch. My favourite were a very cosy photobooth in a horse trailer and pretty dessert table with doughnut wall, creation of Carla & Nicola from Ruby and Pearl Cake Art.
