A Scottish wedding with a Danish twist.

The last Danish/ Scottish wedding I attended was my own – and from a heavily biased point-of-view it was probably the best wedding in the world.  So I was pretty excited when I found out that Frank’s mother is Danish and a full contingent were coming across from Denmark and were bringing a bunch of awesome Danish wedding traditions with them!

The Scottish parts of this wedding were equally brilliant – Friends and family bagpiping and Hannah’s shoes made in Frank’s family tartan were particular highlights. Other highlights included a helicopter fly-past, a wedding cake made by Hannah, incredible weather and the loveliest couple full of respect, kindness and love for each other.

Frank started his day with his ushers and his two brothers, who showed him the kind of love only brothers can…

Meanwhile Hannah was getting ready at her parents’ house, alongside her bridesmaids. Notice how Hannah’s shoes match Frank’s kilt! She had them made made in Frank’s family tartan.

It’s handy to count a whole bunch of bagpipers among your friends and family…

Did you know that at Danish weddings when the groom leaves the room, all the men in the room get up and kiss the bride?
